My husband, Isaac, is an inmate at that facility and he witnessed an inmate die last month. How many people have to lose their life before someone steps in to aide the prisoners?

Just to clarify no inmate died last month or the month before that or the month before that at FCI, these inmates are well taken care of, I know I work there.

This inmate was my cousin Randall Jordan-Aparo and from everything I have read the inmates at Franklin C.I are treated like crap. For the record Randall was gassed right before his death and asked for help!! Did he get it?? I am guessing not. Unknown if you expect me to belive that inmates are well taken care of in any prison you obviously must think that I walk around with blinders on.

I too have a dear friend at FRANKLIN CI. Who also gave the same story of an inmate being gassed to death. A poster put above they get treated well because she works there. That doens't mean anything because you work there???? Obviously.
You clarifying means what??? This did happen.

as someone that this "victim" stole from I know he is no saint so there were probably reasons they did not believe he was in trouble he was always causing some sort of problem so I don't think it's fair to blame the corrections officers

I am fully aware that he was no saint sweetheart. Reguardless of whether or not he was always into something gives the gaurds no right to negate their responsibilities. THAT'S THE JOB THEY GET PAID TO DO!!! If you gotta take the same inmate to the nurse 90000 times guess what that's the way the cookie crumbles. From the fact you seem to know alor about him I am guessing you probably ran in the same circles.

I too have a friend @ Franklin.
Who shared the same story of
this guy being gassed to death.
He said that there are for sure
penalties for getting up in these
guards faces and they have no
tolerance for any kind of foolishness.
This story is like so many others
are sad. Young people stay out
of prison.

I didn't "run in his circle" my ex was a friend of his, I gladly kicked him out of my home on several occasions. He couldn't respect himself let alone others. This is a guy that stole food stamps from his own nephew.

I just got out of franklin and was there when randy was killed.He was aguring with the officers,and they peppersprayed him,he asked for help they said no.Besides the nurses there take at 10-15 min to get to confinment.The officers there will spray inmates for anything,I was sprayed because my cellmate called Lt.Austin a "cracker".It's a shame how they run the prison,and for unknown who works there,your probaly one of the lowlife officers who hassle the inmates because you were picked on while you were a kid.IT'S NOT ARE FAULT

Regardless of what kind of person he was, that is no reason to refuse medical attention or to not "believe" they are in need, when they are asking for help. The correction officers ARE at fault and should have brought him to medical!!!

Look I just was informed about the incidents that take place at this facility and you aren't telling the truth. Those inmates are crying out for help and its time this place be investigated. My opinion is that not all inmates need to be treated like crap. I worked at a facility before and quit b/c I had to lie about certain things and I've seen how nasty the officers can be toward the inmates. I truly believe that something corrupt is going on in there and since I'm nosey i"m going to investigate.

Thats so true. Now say you were around your cousin or a friend and you had no clue that they did something wrong and asked you to ride somewhere with them and all of a sudden they commit a crime without you having any knowledge that they were going to do it. How would you feel? sometime things happen beyond our control and as innocent as we may be we too have to suffer. Some people are INNOCENT..... JUSTSAYING
