How do you know he died of an asthma attack before an autopsy was done? That won't be for weeks. Please try to get your facts straight before your unprofessional reporting.

lack of better medical attention may have contributed to his death. would an ambulance have saved his life, who knows. but a 30 minute ride with no medical attention certainly didnt help.

So would having a rescue inhaler if you are asthmatic. How long would it take to get an ambulance to the location? How did the Officer really know it was an emergency? Why didn't the inmate have his own emergency provisions? Why didn't the other work release inmates call 911 ? Why didn't the inmate in medical emergency call 911? Perhaps...perhaps....no body knew the seriousness of the situation and perhaps.....perhaps it was just an unfortunate accident.

People only want to see one side. Well, I can tell you that is wrong. It is unfortunate that a man died. But to try to destroy others without the facts is more tragic.

Law enforcement judges people all the time. They don’t give a damn who’s lives get destroyed with their lies and accusations

i hear they suspended the Officer that was driving the transport vehicle for 3 days before he had a hearing. he was suspended for not calling an Ambulance.

thats some pathetic, political cover their azz crap right there. he had no way to call an ambulance, Officers do not have cell phones, inmates do not have cell phones and the prison radio system is not connected to the 27 million dollar renovation of the 911 center.

what did they want him to do ? send smoke signals ?

this really shows how inept and clueless management is at ECP.
