David Ovalle at the Miami Herald has all the details in the story here.
Go in for DWLS, get taken out in a body bag. Not a pretty picture.
Joseph Wilner died on the notorious 9th floor of the jail, where they "house" inmates with psychiatric problems. House is really not a proper term. Lets just describe exactly what they do:
they strip the inmates naked and put them in a wire cage or a plastic bubble.
The rats have better beds at the DCJ than inmates on the 9th floor.
So here is the question: who's going to get arrested for manslaughter for the negligence involved in this man's death?
And where is our esteemed state attorney and the grand jury investigation for a jail, which like the roach motel, has a motto that "you check in, but don't check out?"
How many more people are the Dade County Department of Corrections going to kill this year? Three people have died on the ninth floor this year. DWLS is a damned misdemeanor! We are killing our citizens for driving with a suspended license. This is outrageous.
And it's more than that: it's a crime.
"You can judge a society by how it treats its prisoners."
Miami gets an "F".
See you in court, keeping clients out of that death trap.
