Look lady I've already told you that I'm sorry it happened but I don't feel any sorrow for him. Last I remember suicide usually means that the person made a conscious decision to end their life that's not a plea for help."The cameras at the jail" work fine they don't just train them at any one inmate 24/7/365. You speak of being broken in on have you ever thought that it was probably him that did it? Again I ask after reading your drawn out story of his life why didn't you get him the help you say he so needed before he hit "rock bottom" as you say he did? Face it lady it's not the jails fault. He failed himself and is responsible for his actions unless you are willing to accept responsibility for not getting him help before it was too late.

Ummmm...... I think you're on the wrong thread or topix has messed it up because the top of this thread reads "Caldwell County jail inmate Jason Eugene Braswell hangs self, in critical condition"

What part of my post didn't you understand? Because your reply never touched on anything I said. I never posted anything about sin. What I posted about was CRIME AND PUNISHMENT. Was it the part about it not being the jailers fault that they don't have the manpower to assign an officer to stay with him 24/7/365 just in case he decides it would be easier to kill himself than to pay for his crimes, or was it the part about you saying that you knew that he was suicidal and never bailed him out or tried to get help for him??? Did this guy not have enough common sense to realize that the path he had chosen was eventually going to lead him to a long stay in a jail or a prison if he was lucky enough to get caught before he kicked in a door one day and a home owner shot him dead in his tracks??? Before you get all sanctimonious and start your sermon about having compassion for others, first tell me where was his compassion for others when he was stealing the things they worked for??? I hate that the guy hung himself but it's on him it was his decision that he would rather die than face his punishment and get a job and get his life back on track.
no its not okay to steal and the fact is when he did it was from family that doesnt make it right but it was us we had to deal with

Well then since you don't want me to call you lady then I will no longer give you the benefit of a of my doubts. So look you stupid middle school drama queen, I have two children who are now grown men with wives and children of their own and they have no criminal record both are sober, educated and employed. Second since you think you are making some big point by counting off things as you babble them, Before you worry about my identity you need to worry about learning how to spell the damn word. Does a moron like you even have the slightest idea how many inmates at the detention center have ingested "several different and deadly kinds of drugs"? Usually about 95% of them are there because of a drug habit and a theft habit and claim that they are going to kill themselves. It's called withdrawal you idiot. And last but certainly not least ass-clown, have you ever thought that he might have used a fellow junkie friend to kicked in your door? Never even crossed your mind did it? That's OK as I can see that thinking out of the box isn't one of your stronger points. I feel no sorrow for him because he MADE A STUPID SELFISH CHOICE to take the easy way out. How can you claim that he loves his son when he would rather die than man-up get off drugs and straighten his self out and raise the kid? I do although feel sorrow for the ones he hurt with his selfish actions, his son his father and mother they are the ones that have to pay the price for him not being enough of a man to do the right thing.

I must say I do kind of agree with Darwin on this one. If the man loved his son as much as pam browning family posted then he wouldn't have hung himself. I've been depressed and I've been suicidal. He had options. Period. CCSD must not have left him unattended for too long cause he wasn't dead which must mean he hadn't been there for a long period of time. It's hard for me to feel sorry for someone who just decided to take what they wanted just because they could. If he was so suicidal then why didn't he do it before he was caught or before he decided to take someone elses stuff?

I agree, it is always easier to find others to blame for tragedy but bottom line is he decided this was his course of action, it is not the families or CCSD fault. I am sure this is the result of years of errors and bad judgement on his part which finally ended in tragedy. No one to blame but him, however I do feel for the family as they deal with the consequences and the second guessing of how things could have been different.

Please write, email or call Atty,Lisa Dubs. She is more than familiar with CCSO. Once the deputies enter the jail with anyone in cuffs, that person is THEIR responsibility period. Now they are complaining they do not run a daycare. Neither do the citizens of this county! Do the tax payers need to start babysitting the CCSO to keep someone from dying or a lawsuit being filed each WEEK????? The Citizens pay for you to do your job, so why do we need to begin micro management of our Sheriffs Office to do their jobs. You are responsible for your prisoners. If you had bad or broken cameras, you could had gotten a government grant to purchase new ones. A list of law enforcement loan free money is online. Geez. No excuse for this. Why do we need to begin babysitting the dept to keep you from being sued or off the news? Example - stop letting employees embezzle, sexually harass citizens, swinger parties, losing evidence from evidence room, shooting grandparents in drunken parties, unlawful seizure of firearms from a former Federal Agent (ha ha idiots) and keeping up with the prisoners and their well being. If you are unable to care or keep up with them, call the FBI to take over. I think you are all mad that the wall keep tumbling and crumbling in on all of you.

No one knows what this young man has gone through. Pray you are never so down you end up in his position. Suicidal attempts need to be handled with care. This dept is so inhumane, they denied a Vietnam Veteran his meds prescribed by the VA Hospital, all current meds, this man laid in there and died, but oh, its not the fault of CCSO. They ate even charging for toilet paper. This is ridiculous. MLK Holiday weekend and the CCSO could have cared less about this young man and they were told he was suicidal. They are never around on holidays. It's the departments responsibility what to do with him if they know his condition and do not transfer him elsewhere. They sell cameras on Ebay, and I guarantee they were cheaper than all the new vehicles bought for the dept. Bottom line, this young man was their responsibility. No matter what he did, he is their responsibility.

Braswell Family. Please see Lisa Dubs. She works on a contingency basis. Praying for you all.
