How ironic when there is terrible drinking water for the inmates and medical neglect for those in those prisoners in Suicide watch.Does anyone agree with me that physical abuse goes on? A 20 year old youngman on suicide watch was hit in the head just for asking what time is it? The guilty correctional officers know who they are who choked him and made fun of him and abused him leaving him unconcious on the floor with a bruised knee for days lying to his family he refused to come out of his cell and call them and to see his Dad last Friday in September. When Monday came around Riverhead Jail decided to take him to University Hospital at Stony Brook severely dehydrated, finally broken by inhumane people at Riverhead Jail in Long Island. I visited this youngman at Jail and sadly left him at the hospital today. Are you proud of what your correctional officers did and medical neglect Sherrif and Warden I am a Christian and pray the Evil done will be exposed and Stopped now-Right away. May God show the error of your ways and give you compassion for Our suicide watch prisoners, This young kid you gave a nervous breakdown to was a victim of over taking his PROZAC medication-look up the lawsuits on Prozac where driving Fast, Violence and Suicide Death wishes are carried out, Google Lawsuits Against Prozac. A Loving father took this antideppressant after retirement and ended up killing his wife then himself. Too many doctors prescribe this dangerous drug to teenagers and young people under 25. This young man you harrassed and physically abused neded mental help. Do you fear God? I would. Jesus said-Whatever you do to the least of my brethern that you do unto me!

Hey Shoreham, NY...I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU 100%! My boyfriend is in Riverhead an dhas been since September. I could write a book and sue the shit out of Riverhead with all the stories he tells me. All abuse and neglect. I had to contact the warden to get him some medical attention. He "fell" apparently during some outside basketball and banged up his elbow. He went to medical and they did NOTHING. Not even clean it out. Well3 weeks later after it being so swollen, the size of a grapefrui, red and sore and hot, they FINALL took an xray of it after 3 weeks and put him on some antibiotics. He finished his meds about a week ago and it still looks the same. Im a nurse and i told him that he has Brusitus and it needs to be aspirated. This abscess is HUGE, RED, HOT AND FILLED WITH FLUID. I feel so bad for these inmates. If they dont take care of this, he will most likey get gangreen or possibly has a staph infection. I dont know what else I can do for him....Any Suggestions?
