Time to put the jail commission in the jail

Phil Plummer, Sheriff, Montgomery County OhioLast week, an inmate hanged himself in his cell.

He quietly passed through this world under the less than watchful eye of Sheriff Phil Plummer.

The jail is grossly short-staffed. Rookie officers are making serious mistakes in handling prisoners. Video to follow soon, as well as a massive data dump on issues within the jail.

And, as of this moment, the jail is in lockdown, following the OD’s of three female inmates, one of whom died this morning.

Sasha Nicol Garvin, 27, with a history of minor driving issues was pronounced dead at 8:15 am.

Do we have time to keep waiting for a “commission” to review procedures, policies, safety, while people die?

Maybe the solution is to lock up the “commission” until they come up with viable solutions?

Going to jail should never be a death sentence.

Details to come.
