2 New Wrongful Death Cases in Texas

Both CCA and the GEO Group are facing backlash over the alleged wrongful deaths of prisoners in their care in Texas.  The family of a prisoner at the Central Texas DF has sued the GEO Group for negligence in allowing their son to commit suicide, two days after he was removed from suicide watch.  Then, at the Dawson State Jail in Dallas, a 30-year-old female prisoner less than two months before her anticipated release date.  She apparently died of pneumonia after the medical staff at the facility failed to treat it.  CCA doesn't provide medical care to prisoners at the facility, but leaked internal documents suggests CCA supervisors at the facility failed to follow protocol when they didn't call for medical attention sooner.  The chief of security recommended firing a shift supervisor, but the warden at the facility declined to do so and couldn't identify any need for further training of his COs.

    The Wilkinson County Correctional Facility in Woodville, MS is on lockdown status after multiple inmate fights at the facility Tuesday night.

    Facility staff responded to simultaneous incidents of inmates fighting with one another in multiple housing areas around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday. According to officials at the prison, staff responded immediately to quickly contain and quell the disturbance. Within an hour, the incident was resolved, with all inmates secured in their housing areas.

  2. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need
    some help from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?

    I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

  3. Browsing digg.com I noticed your website book-marked as: Blogger: Why I
    Hate CCA (Corrections Corporation of America). Now i'm assuming you book-marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you a lot of visitors? I've been contemplating doing some
    book-marking for a few of my sites but wasn't certain if it would yield any positive results. Many thanks.

  6. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on
    the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre
    talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could
    be giving us something enlightening to read?

  7. Hi, I'm new to blogging and websites in general and was curious about how you got the "www" included in your domain name? I see your web address, "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=5021091294764115072&postID=8055250664075890325" has the www and my domain looks like, "http://mydomain.com". Do you know the easiest way I can change this? I'm using Wordpress platform.

    Appreciate it

    When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Cheers!

    I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues
    with your site. It appears as if some of the text within
    your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen before. Kudos

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or
    maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same topics as yours and
    I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing
    from you! Excellent blog by the way!

  16. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the
    screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post
    to let you know. The design and style look great
    though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos
