          It is scary to think that our dedicated public servants could be held accountable for what is likely the poor health of someone that has lived a lifestyle that put her in jail and in poor health. It seems she wasn't aware enough of how sick she was to request help or just didn't want it. Regardless we can't blame non-medical personnel for another individuals health condition. We actually shouldn't blame medical personnel for another individuals health condition either. Hoping that these two jailers will be cleared of all charges.

          I'm confused. How was there enough evidence to proceed to a Grand Jury for an indictment? I'm just a tad lost, really, as to HOW these people could be held liable to the death of an inmate who did not even appear to want help....Granted, I don't Know ALL the details, but given what is in this report, I see no cause for this extreme action.
