being in jail doesn't mean your guilty of anything. It means you got accused. Better check your own closets,

The man was beat to death in a regional jail, it is not San Quinton they should have had a lot more control of their inmates, There had to be some warning signs this was coming. There are a lot of questions that are in need of answers.
I can only offer the family my condolences for their loss and that justice be served.

There are 12 C O 's for 580 Inmates. Unless you have 1 officer per Inmate then things like this are going to happen. I mean I realize 99 percent of Inmate populations are innocent but believe it or not there actually some bad people incarcerated.
The Regional Jail System has been in place since 1988 (26 years) and four murders have occurred. That is a really small number and is fairly impressive.

You obviously have no clue how a Regional jail is set up and how many convicted and pre-trial felons are housed there

Obviously you have your own agenda, or you wouldn't be making excuses for RJA. Anyone in LE knows you don't house convicted felons with pre-trial for this very reason; pre-trial detainees are trying to make bond and go home. Sentenced convicts have their time, and so they know they aren't going anywhere but to prison. This never should have happened, and I truly hope this gentleman's family resist efforts to 'sweep this away'.

I just meant that convicted and prey rial felons are both housed there. They are not housed together. And both these guys were pre trial anyway

This was the first at southern. I meant in all ten regional jails over the last twenty five years or so.

Believe me no one cares if any of those pieces of filth die while being locked up I know I don't give a damn. It costs tax payers less and it prevents then from getting back on the streets and preying on innocent people. It's basically a win win situation. One is dead the other away for even longer. Be nice if half of them killed the other half. Bet even the dead mans family could care less.
