County sued over death of pregnant inmate

This is beyond reprehensible. I am not normally one to join the lynch mobs coming screaming "Pigs!" and calling all cops such. But this is really beyond the pale. I hope they fire any and everyone involved in this mockery and they get civil suits filed on them as well. After all she really didn't deserve this and the unborn child certainly did not.

Been in jail many times. None of those associated with the system are professional. They laugh at others pain and suffering. All cops are scum. All correction officers are less than scum.

No believe it or not some are just men and women doing a very crappy thankless job. But, I think the problem is the paradigm in our society today. What was once called Peace Officers are now Law Enforcement. Says it all I think.
