The number of inmates who died while in custody of local jail and prisons increased. One of such trouble jail is Russell county jail in Phenix city, Alabama .
The increase in the jail and prison population from less than 200,000 in 1972 to 2.2 million today has led to unprecedented prison overcrowding and put tremendous strain on state budgets. Jails must be a place of controlled and managed environment, but most of the time in Russell county jail that issue gets out of control .
Correctional officers refused to follow their job description, rules and basic human treatment of inmates in local jail .
Death of inmate in jail occured just recently, September 12, 2017. Sheriff H. Taylor explained to the media it was suicide .... and CPR on unresponsive inmate was performed by jail staff until paramedics were "allowed" finally enter the jail block. They did not know about previous conditions or diseases present in this particular inmate and ... no precautions were taking . Did jail staff need to know health conditions of any of their inmates ?? NO !
Inmate , who died, R.T. , was complaining about chest pain , severe chest pain, was vomiting and sweating . He ask one of the officers to take him to medical office . Correctional officer refused to help R. T.
The other cellmate of R.T. was taking out of their room for " made up " reason . When he came back --- R.T. was dead.
The truth is : inmate most likely died from a heart attack , was denied help from jail medical staff. When one of their officer found him dead, the officer covered his face with a towel . Did not start CPR , they tried to perform ECG on unresponsive inmate . Sorry, too late , they should do ECG , when inmates was alive and complained of chest pain . Nobody was doing CPR , and even more , I am sure jail staff doesn't know much about CPR at all. much less perform CPR on inmates.
Death covered up by Russell County sheriff office .
LT. Steve Johnson current officer in charge of operations of RC Jail
