  1. There is a custodial death every month. People just don’t die like this. This man was arrested on a vandalism charge, it doesn’t make any sense.

    1. These people are mentally ill and need to be in a hospital…Yes, jail officers etc. Mistreat and kill these inmates everyday! As though they are any better!? No, they are worse!! AND those are the rabies animals we could all do without!!
