Robert gray is my brother in law. what happened at the jail was not fair. robert felt sick and was asking for help and the law failed to do anything about it. instead they let him sit there for a countless amount of hours before they decided to take him to the hospital. you know its funny this is the second time the law has hurt someone in my family. about 5 years ago my blood brother was takin into custody from our front yard. although my brother was intoxicated, he was in perfect physical condition. we spent our whole night trying to bond him out. sometime in the early morning we were able to go pick him up, but we were not prepared for what were about to see. My brothers whole face was bashed in. his front tooth missing, black eyes, the whole nine yards. the literally small tree limbs, grass,(etc) shoved into the back of his eye sockets. to this day my brothers lip still has a scar and he is still missing his front tooth. we took it to court, and nothing ever happened to the police that arrested him. its crazy, the government can get away with anything they want and there is nothing we can do about it. im only 20 yrs old and i hate the police. it shouldnt be like that, i know they are "here to protect us" in all, but with all the things that i have seen in my short 20 yrs that does not appear to be true. cops can fuck your world up and get away with it. and now its gotten out of hand. i have lost a family member because of crooked cops. ROBERT IS GONE. BECAUSE OF YOU. I HATE YOU. i hope there is a crooked cop out there reading this... maybe it will make you think twice before hurting someone else. just always remember that these people have family members. some have kids and wives and all kinds of things, and you could give two shits about that. put yourself in our shoes. i hope the cop that robert asked help for loses his job, and thats the least of what i hope, i mean robert lost his life, and the worse that will happen to you is you MIGHT lose your job. not even close to a fair trade if you ask me.

This is like the zillionth time this has happened in the US actually ... They NEVER give meds that are supposed to be given /medical help on time etc ,, etc ,, much of the time it is people there on traffic warrants / or have asked to serve time intsead of paying a fine due to lack of money ... it wont bring him back but you are not alone.

i was in that jail a few years back. im diabetic and my sugar crashed. got below 50. told the jack-booted thug i needed to see the nurse. he told me i would be allright. guess he had a medical degree. staff infection runs rampant in that jail. they call it spider bites. i never saw 1 spider in that shithole. they say that so the feds wont shut it down. they'r just a bunch of fat nazi bastards who get off on controlling people. really, theirs not 1 skinny person working there.hitler would be proud
