How many inmate deaths is too many?

SD City BeatBernard Joseph Victorianne was a 28-year-old black male with a ticking time bomb in his stomach.

Victorianne was arrested on Sept. 12, 2012, less than two blocks from the San Diego Police Department’s Mid-City station on suspicion of driving under the influence. A week later, he was found dead in his cell—the 60th inmate to die in the custody of the San Diego County jail system since 2007.

Immediately after his arrest, Victorianne was taken to Alvarado Hospital to be treated for alcohol intoxication. Even then, police and medical staff believed the suspect— who was on probation for a number of narcotics offenses— likely had swallowed a bindle of drugs. He was observed overnight, then transferred to the San Diego Central Jail. For the next several days, Victorianne was bounced between sobriety cells, secure units and administrative segregation (a normal housing unit reserved for problematic inmates who need to be separated from the general population) due to his lasting, agitated behavior. He was prescribed Haldol, a powerful anti-psychotic, and anti-anxiety medication.

According to the medical examiner’s report, Sheriff’s deputies couldn’t say exactly when they last saw Victorianne alive. Deputies checked on him in the “early evening” of Sept. 18. He was left unmonitored through the night.

At 4:30 a.m., guards who brought breakfast into his cell found him lying on the floor, naked, but didn’t check whether or not he was conscious. Two-and-a-half hours later, guards began their morning rounds and discovered that Victorianne hadn’t moved. By the time they entered his cell, rigor mortis had begun in his lower extremities. continue reading...

Sick and tired on the blame focused on the very people that feed and provide the needs of these pieces of shit that no one else wants to deal with. This piece of shit died because of what he put into his body. He killed himself anyone who thinks that someone else is at fault is as like minded as this piece of shit. This society is more worried about these felons then the victims they leave behind. If this piece of shit had killed himself at home or anywhere else somebody would put blame on someone else other than where it should be. This is what is wrong with society no one wants to take the blame for their own actions. They will even give someone that doesnt deserve an excuse an excuse. He tried to get over and failed.

I agree with the anon post before mine. These pieces of garbage come into prison a wreck. They destroy themselves with drugs and then when they end up in prison and die because of their own doing, people want to blame prisons.

The retardation known as liberalism needs to stop. The criminal lovers need to stop!
