AZ Corrections Workers Disciplined in Inmate Death
Source: ABC news

Sixteen Arizona corrections employees have been fired,
suspended or otherwise disciplined for their role in the
death of inmate at the Perryville prison in Goodyear.

The moves were announced at a news conference late Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities say 48-year-old Marcia Powell collapsed in
triple-digit heat after spending four hours in an
outdoor holding cell May 20, and died of a heat-related illness.

Powell had first- and second-degree burns on her face and body
and a core body temperature of 108 degrees.

Small tin isolation cell where prisoners are put to cook. Pretty fucking inhuman.

13. Cool Hand Luke
was a great movie. Could it be inmates are softies now? Did the inmate have it coming? We don't have the whole story. Maybe they needed to get their mind right.

8. Yes, it was not unusual for inmates to be in cages for eight to twelve hours.

6. Isn't that murder?!!
TORTURING prisoners by burning them in the sun? In an American correctional institution? Does nothing happen if she didn't have family to file charges? Even in a criminal case like this?

This makes me wonder how much SH!T is going on in our own prisons that we don't ever hear about.

Who changed the law that every American prisonor is in Guantanemo?

And when (ahem! "who?") did it happen?

17. This is right up there with Cool Hand Luke
Edited on Wed Sep-23-09 01:31 AM by ProudDad
Luke was sentenced to eventual death for clipping the heads off of some parking meters.

This woman was sentenced to eventual death for prostitution...another bogus "crime"...

Fuck this Calvinist bullshit country...

-------------------------------------------------

On edit:

From the story: "Three of those disciplined were fired, two stepped down in place of being fired, 10 received suspensions ranging from 40 to 80 hours, and one was demoted. Two others will be disciplined after they return from medical leave."

I hope they had the shit kicked out of them by inmates -- then there would be some justice in this story...

Fuck the Police -- and the D.A.s -- the whole fucking system is corrupt to the core...
