Care2 Member's son is murdered Saturday, 9:04 PM

My friends, this one is not my usual post, but it has me extremely angry and upset. My heart is broken for the mother, even though I do not know her. If these things can be done to her son, it can be done to our sons, our daughters, ... us.

Dear Sir:

Timothy Joe Souders, age 21, died Aug.6, 2006, at the Jackson Prison due to torturous treatment at the hands of his jailors. "The 21-year-old mentally ill inmate was locked in a segregation cell and shackled to a steel table. Four days later, on Aug. 6, the Adrian resident was dead, apparently because of extreme heat and dehydration, a doctor appointed by U.S. District Judge Richard Enslen concluded."

See these articles for reference please:

http://www.mlive.com/search/index.ssf?/base/news-32/1160657103136880.xml?grpress?NEG&coll=6

http://www.care2.com/news/member/719268278/198391

This is an outrage. It is unconstitutional "cruel and unusual punishment." And, this needs to be investigated thoroughly and fully with those responsible for this heinous treatment of an inmate brought to the fullest extent of justice and accountability.

Furthermore, the whole system that would punish rather than treat and help a mentally ill citizen also needs a full investigation and correction.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Daphne Bradshaw

While I grieve with and ache for the survivors, I do not believe this topic is the appropriate place for this posting.  There may have been a crime or crimes committed, but they are not focussed on the mourning of the family.  The dealings with the mentally ill, both in law enforcement and society in general, is a topic far beyond this group's expertise.  (e.g., does a mentally ill patient have the right to refuse medications, or does society have a right/obligation to force it upon him or her?)  My heart grieves for the family and friends of the victim, and if any standard of care by a physician or guard was violated I hope that they are fully prosecuted and punished.

In God's peace...Tim

I hope you and I can agree to disagree.  In my opinion, this group is for grief support and help - not political action or petitions, as seems to be the case here.  As I indicated, I offer prayers and support to the grieving family and will be happy to offer any direct comfort/help I can.  [ send green star]

I agree with you Tim. Although, every kind of grief can turn to joy. Just wish peace for one and all.  [ send green star]
