    Get kidnapped by guys with guns and badges for a simple verbal dispute only to get thrown around and mistreated at the jail for trying to catch your breath while having a medical emergency. Home of the largest prison industrial complex in the world makes me ashamed of this country.

    Sadly this happens all the time in jails and prisons, but it needs to stop now! Lord please don’t let this man have died in vain. 🙁

      Guards are assaulted! “Sadly this happens every day in jails.” He resisted the guards instead of following commands. He did die in vain…

    There should be serious consequences for this kind of barbarism, The entire prison system should be reformed.

      unfortunately, criminals don’t follow the rules and can be dangerous. the problem is the criminals, not the jails.

  5. joe grunt says

    He’s a criminal who looked like he was resisting fighting with a guard. Obey their commands just like with the police and you will be fine, Resist and take your chances. These guards are dealing with hundreds of criminals and murderers every day. The inmates lie, schemed, threaten, and try to manipulate guards. there’s lot’s of liberal tears here from morons who have no clue.


      Yea but still, none of the guards stopped to verify. He could have been more compliant, and the guards could have been more compassionate.
