When you don’t care, things get out of hand.
We reported Tuesday that an inmate had hung himself. It’s still not made the Dayton Day-Old news.
Now, it turns out that a dozen days earlier, Nathan Griffith hanged himself- cut down and taken to the hospital already brain dead. He was kept on life support for a week- until family could be located at which point life support was pulled.
That’s 2 deaths by hanging in August of 2018.
Jail isn’t supposed to be a death sentence. And, hangings are preventable with proper supervision.
Again, maybe it’s time we put Sheriff Phil “the torturer” Plummer in prison- or at least make him work there so that these deaths stop.
Condolences to Griffith’s family.
