Bad week, just need to vent
    #2743531 - 05/29/04 04:07 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Week started off by one of my friends dieing of bacterial menigaitise (problably didnt spell it right) that he contracted in the carroll county jail while serveing time on a simple possesion charge. He had been complaining for several days about his neck and back and muscels bothering him and the police refused to get him medical help as the days went on his muscels shut down and he was unable to walk his last day alive he had to be carried by his 9 cell mates (not all at once they took turns) to the toloiet and back every time he needed to use the bathroom. And monday the last day he was alive they moved him to a singel cell to confine him and they found him dead on his cell floor 2 hours later. I heard from his sister that was in jail at the time say she head that the guards had said well thats one less sob the tax payers have to pay for.

At his funeral it was horrid his mother's cries just tore me apart and im pretty good at hideing my feelings. But i just couldn't stand it she's really tore up and she has every right to be and it got those feeling I was trying to maintaine pulled right out of me. Prolly the first time iv cried at a funeral since my great grandma died when I was 7.

Im so mad at the carroll county jail for letting him die like that over a fucking simple possesion charge its fucking bullshit. How can people be so incompacient to so one who suffer as he did.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

You're friends' mom ought to sue. And then use the millions of dollars she will inevitably win to start a foundation in his name to fight for human rights in US prisons. Just a thought.

The suit may not make up for the loss of your friend, it probabably doesn't even come close to offering you or his mother any sort of "justice" in that regard, however it is a chance to create something positive out of such a horrible situation.

It will force the issue of domestic prisoner and criminal abuse to become more puplic in your area. It will cost the government time and resources to pay attention to this matter. The crime your fiend committed is unimportant at this point (although it does make a statement about the current state of the war on drugs). Know that through this suit your friends mom has the opporunity to hold someone accountable for the possibly criminal mistreatment of your friend (and as a result his death). Once that accountability has been held, whether through criminal liability or the resignation and political or career ruination of whomever was "in charge," it may offer some sort of justice for what has been done.

Has this story received and sort of media attention in your area? If not I would be 100% engaged in writing letters and calling reporters, editors, and producers of all the local and state media in your area.

I am so sorry.

Bert's idea is excellent... put some of that money to use to prevent such suffering from occurring again.

Peace.
