By the way ATS, nothign was working for a while
Every field was like an image, couldn't put my insertion point in any field.

Anyhow, Isn't this odd?
104 deaths die in U.S. custody?

And they said that they 'BELIEVED' leading cause of death was lack of medical care? How can they believe, if they died in their custoday they shouldn't believe, they should KNOW.

This is very troubling I find, there's definately something else going on here that they aren't disclosing.

Well I would like to know 104 out of how many (1,000 or like 100,000). I mean in any situation you will have a certain percentage of people die, be it in custody or at the Ritz Carleton.

Remember many of these people could have been malnourished, suffered significant stresses during their time in the state or on their voyage over, etc.

They may not know 100% what the cause of death was because they cant perform an autopsy and numerous tests to find out on every single person.

Again I would just like to know the % of those in custody that the 104 made up, before jumping to any conclusions.
