Death By Negligence

Another quick link here, this one to the story of a preventable death that took place inside a CCA prison in Colorado in October of 2010.  A 26-year-old man died of an enlarged heart, a condition that would have been treatable if the medical staff at the facility had not ignored his requests for help.  In fact, the young man had attempted to be seen by medical staff daily over the two weeks preceding his death, but was ignored.  The prison told his mother his death was "natural."  As in "we naturally let him die."

This is why I hate CCA.
