Lawsuits: Alabama Jailers Allowed 3 Inmates to Die of 19th-Century Ailments

Gangrene, a bowel obstruction, and delirium tremens killed inmates in the Madison County jail. In 2013.

On August 6, 2013, officers at the Madison County jail in Huntsville, Alabama, moved an inmate named Duendrez Woods to a medical watch cell. Woods, 19, was suffering from an open wound on his foot and had begun hallucinating. But the jail didn’t provide him with any medical treatment. In the following days, they tased Woods for being uncooperative—three times. Woods began lying naked on the floor. He barely moved except when officers dragged him into the showers to hose off the stench of his injury. At no point did anyone treat Woods’ oozing foot or even take his blood pressure.

Protests at St. Louis University - TRNN Reports From FergusonMEGAN SHERMAN, PRODUCER: On Sunday, October 12, a large crowd crept through the Shaw neighborhood in the south side of St. Louis. Demonstrators wielding signs and posters were led on a winding path in their attempts to avoid police. There were a number of marches that turned violent following the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by Darren Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department. Fifteen-year-old Low Key, who is a member of the Lost Voices, describes why he believes marching through the streets is a good way to make people aware of the issues at hand.LOW KEY, ORGANIZER, LOST VOICES: –like, ’cause you ain’t going to stop your day and hear me out if I’m walking on the sidewalk, telling you I feel sad and I’m sad because Darren Wilson has killed someone somebody three years older than me and we might not get justice and that might be me in three years. You’re not going to listen to me say that from the sidewalk. But if I’m in the street yelling in your face with my signs up, maybe then you’ll take your time out your day to hear me out.

His car was found on October 22 when a security guard reported that a group of youths set it ablaze on Fulton Street in Brooklyn.
Police canvassed Blenner’s neighborhood and found a woman who said that about an hour before the crime, she was washing her car on the street about a block from Blenner’s residence.

DETROIT, MI — A Special Response Team shattered a family’s window in the middle of the night, hurled a flashbang onto a couch next to a sleeping girl, then charged in and shot her in the head.  The hyper-aggressive tactics were made worse by the fact that police had taken it upon themselves to raid both sides of a duplex, when their suspect was only known to reside in one of them.
