Maybe these ELDERLY drug users should be required to spend 72 hours in the hospital before going into the jail population. I mean it makes sense to me that they are needing medical detoxification. This is sad that they had to die, but I know they had something to do with it. The Sheriff should take better steps with these type of people, or they will continue to DIE.

These people called 911 for a medical emergency, and they end up arrested, where they die in jail? Something is seriously wrong here, folks. The hospitals who cleared their release should be expecting lawsuits, because these people clearly were in need of medical assistance, and did not get it. And for those of you who say these people put themselves in this position and thus "deserved" to die, I hope the next time you do something stupid and need medical assistance that you get sent to jail to die.
