Thursday, February 16th, 2017

A Ohio sheriff’s department once again has been exposed on video pepper spraying a detainee strapped in a restraint chair, a disturbing incident that took place a month after an almost identical video surfaced that was written off as an “isolated” incident by the sheriff who runs the jail.
The practice does not seem very isolated considering the victim in the latest attack expressed fear about getting strapped to the chair before he even saw the chair.
“I’m not going in the chair, am I?” asks Charles Wade as soon as he soon as he steps into the Montgomery County Jail

A Michigan sheriff is defending a county jail’s decision to withhold treatment from a woman who gave birth in a jail after staff members refused to believe she was going into labor.
A lawmaker is now urging state investigators to look at the case, the same jail previously probed by federal investigators for the deaths of two inmates refused hospitalization in the past four years.
Jessica Preston was pulled over in March last year for a rosary hanging from her rear view mirror that police claimed obstructed her view of the mirror. After police discovered her license was suspended, she was

The parents of an insulin-dependent 20-year-old diabetic woman who died in an Texas jail cell after a licensed nurse ignored her pleas and refused to help released a surveillance video of her death Thursday in hopes it will bring about changes in the “prison for profit” industry.

“This has to change. Nobody deserves to die like that.”

Award-Winning New York Sheriff Refuses to Provide Details on Two Recent Inmate Deaths While Being Sued for Third Death

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Nobody at the Broome County Jail in New York is saying much about the two inmates who have died in less than a month.
In fact, the local district attorney’s office said it was not even aware of the latest death this week until contacted by the media.
And even then, Broome County District Attorney’s Chief Investigator Jason T. Ellis didn’t seem to really care.
“It is our understanding (that) the Sheriff’s Office conducted an investigation,” Ellis said in the statement to the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin.
“We will review the matter to determine if further investigation is warranted.”

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Georgia inmate Yoel Robton first wrapped the blanket he’d tied into makeshift noose around his bedpost around noon, spending the next eight hours placing it around his neck in apparent suicide attempts.
Not a single guard at the Doraville Detention Center noticed until it was too late.
Now an insurance company for the city will ante up $2 million for the mentally ill  man’s suicide after settling a lawsuit with his mother.
Records show jailers failed to check on her son every 20 minutes as city policy required and they failed to give him medication prescribed for depression even after his family brought it to them, leaving him to kill himself on August 17, 2014.
Surveillance video shows Debra

A disturbing and infuriating video has surfaced showing a group of Texas jail guards piling on top of an inmate who repeatedly tells them he can’t breathe, only for him to be found dead in his cell the following morning.

The incident took place at a private prison in Texas on July 21, 2015, but the video was made public today by
