Thanks wataworld for your prayers because i am one of the family members.And of course there are all kinds of violations in and throughout the prison and there are dirty guards thats in there to do all kinds of dirty work and able to keep it under the table. If he was in a holding cell with 4-7 other inmates shouldnt there be surveillance on them at all times so they can monitor then????
Another thing after the incident why did they send 3 other inmates to parchman after the fact????
Also was did they transfer him twice to different hospitals ---- doesn't make any sense they should have took him to University of Mississippi Medical Center from the start.
Something smells fishy to me!!!!!! All the warden keep saying is that it is under investigation,,,well if you have all your guards and evidence in one cell how long is a investigation pose to be..We need answers and justice and we will get it.
Far as you other sickos yes he did commit burglary but he wasnt a killer and didnt deserve to die for what ever the situation was. So skru all you sickos.Would you say the same thing if it was your family member.??????..
Thanks to all those that support and pray for our family..

How cn aperson get killed in a jail, and how is it that another inmate had to report this death.

Where were the officiers? wERE THEY ASLEEP OR DEAD. There is absolutley no reason someone should be murdered in a jail. Don't they have cameras,there wouldn,t of been a murder or investagation if thses officers were doing there Dam job.

The officers probably sat and watched, some of the officers think there badge is there savior. God died on the cross not wearing a dam badge.

I have found out some cops are very cruel,vindictive, and self serving. Some officers are in for the money tnot to protect and serve. How in the hell can you be a sheriff in a jail and not know what's going on. They have a better view of seeing what's going on in the jail than on the street.

When taking a person's life or watching a persons life being taken so will yours be.

Cops are only people there not special. If it was another cop they would know or die trying. A cops life is no more valuable than any one else.

The jail should be closed down, where is the DNA?
Where were the officers during rounds checking on the inmates? When was the last time the inmates in that cell were checked? Where is the weapon?. This sounds like shit,smells like shit and probably is shit.

Sound like Yazoo City Mississippi. I have a friend, who hired a lawyer and the lawyer didn't even show up in court today. My friend will probably spend time in prison. I don't get how the government wont get to Mississippi and make them accountable for their actions. This is 2010 right?

Hey my sisters and brothers, the only way we as a people can fight the wrongs that has been done in prisons/jails, we have got to stand together in prayer. The Father sees what going on. Someone WILL paid!! Let's pray and stand together for our lover ones who are in jail or coming up for a hearing.You can not do this alone.
