I understand the Deptz real their lives & can't exactly tell the difference between a harmless inmate & dangerous inmate. Yeah misdemeanor is a crime but that doesn't mean you get your ass kicked when the crime you commuted didn't really hurt another human. If the inmate is in his/her own world serving their time & not running their mouth & minding their own business then leave them the hell Alone! that's how they can tell the difference. Don't talk shit and defend people misusing their badge just because your record is clean. You won't feel shot unless you or a loved one gets locked up.

I was just released Today from that hell hole......I know why they didn't help Him, cuz, they are in Humane, they don't care, and, don't wanna be there. A Woman died while I was there, I don't know the details....I saw a Woman beat down by 3 large Male cops with a billy club after buying a soda at dinner, with Her own Money, I saw Pregnant Women, comin down off Heroin, that, they couldn't use the restroom, cuz it was their choice to disrespect Her body so, She could basically shit on Herself. That place needs to be cracked down on, its disgusting, in Humane, call channel 7 news, that hell hole should be exposed!!!!

If u want quality healthcare then get insurance don't rely on the county while you air in jail. I believe every person should he treated with respect hut did any of u stop to think how the officers are treated by the inmates. These "poor division makers" are having to he put in jail and bahysat for their wrong sounds, like children and are treated like such. If u brake the law you go to jail if u don't like the care you receive or the accomidations are jot of your standard atop going. Why is everyone upset about then not seeing a doctor right away. Many people who are employees don't have healthcare benefits yet the nonemployeed criminals hqge access to such care on my dime. Sorry for my lack of empathy but this all sounds stupid.

Not everyone is in there for a crime they committed! I experienced it with my diabetic son and the 911 calls cleared him but he as well almost died in custody because lack of care and the deputies not listening to him. He was guilty until proven innocent! I agree if you do the crime then man up and do your time but to many people are wrongfully arrested and it is a nightmare in santa rita!

TOO BAD FOR U and your stupidity!!! Not everyone in there are criminals. People are wrongfully arrested all the time! And just because there is a few bad apples doesn't mean u can violate constitutional rights!! My don almost died and he was cleared by 911 callers!!! U seem to have the issues and how dare u judge these people if u want to be a judge go to school OH I aM SURE they wont let an idiot on the bench! No matter the situation they are innocent until proven guilty. I do understand the deputies have a tough job but they are trained for it and they should not take it personal and retaliate. I commend these officers for putting up with what they do but they made a vow to protect and serve not get butt hurt and retaliate!

you are so right about everything ,we teach our kids to respect the law and officers we teach them there who we go to when we need help,,why wouldn't they even try to help there dad when he called out for help? That's what they are asking....

the deputies are not doctors, they cannot determine if someone is dead...Prison health services has limited doctors to attend to 4000 inmates...they do the best that they can....it is normal for anyone to think that negatively towards SRJ, it is a negative place...however, if you do not have proof of such allegations, solid proof, do not accuse our law enforcers of this...they risk their lives for you, your mom, your dad, your KIDS!!! now thats solid proof...just my 2 cents, dont take it personal...and i am deeply sorry for your loss.

the deputies just refuse u the services, my son almost begged to get a dr he was going into a diabetic coma and they did not believe him he almost died in there, He was cleared of the wrongful charges by 911 callers whom saw the girl who really put the gun down. They are guilty in their eyes just because they got arrested. I had to fax dr papers, call the boss and harrass then I had to go up there when they realized what they had done they rushed him to medical ward. Not all cops are bad like this and I realize they deal with real animals but they are not the judge and it is their job to care for the inmates they chose this job! they get paid plenty of money to do it and they are not supposed to discriminate they are supposed to book em and take them in front of a judge not kill them cuz they think they are guilty!!!!

Paul william Cruz, u said it all, in ur response to sickau,prompted by anger. U say he wouldnt last a day there, why? because u know what the inmates are like, they are selfish criminals. They kill and beat eachother. It allways amazes me that we never think of the victims of the horrible crimes. People like u trivalize the trauma he victims go thru at the hands of the criminal. they cant push a sick call button, the criminal dosent get them help, dosent tend to their pleas for help. Do i feel pity...NO, The criminals total disregard for the "rights" and safety for the victim is the seed they have planted and now they reap what they have sown.
. So your saying there guilty before getting a fair trial
