Three Months, Three Suicides

How many more must die in the county lockup before people start investigating, holding people accountable, and behaving in a way that at least borders on competence?

People are dying needlessly. They are in county custody – this is preventable, if they want it to be.

    “People are dying needlessly.”

    might I add, these are people who may not ever be convicted of any crime.

    A Google search seems to indicate the suicides in county jails are not unique to our region.

      not unique?  So?  Does that mean we shouldn’t mind or something?

        I was just illuminating the subject without offering an opinion. On the surface there appears to be a problem, but then, maybe it’s just the nature of the beast. I do believe it merits investigation.
