Demand that Inmates Rights be Observed and Respected

    There have been several events take place inside the Johnson County Jail that has disrespected discriminated and violated the inmates 8th and 14th amendments and their human rights As a society we take on the responsibility of protecting these inmates from harm and wrong doing if we choose incarceration as their punishment for allegedly committing a crime. This includes denying medical attention , withholding medication, putting their health and well being at risk by not following proper procedures when being exposed to the Novel Corona Virus, seperation of the inmates to quarantine the sick , not having personal protective equipment accessible when an inmate feels the need to use it, , not properly sanitizing with a solution that kills the virus, especially in highly traveled areas, withholding inmate medications prescribed for reasons other than the common cold or bruising , that without these medications can cause heart attack, cardiac arrest, stroke and even death , Not performing the inmates health intake on the day of booking and deliberately disregarding serious medical conditions that pose a very serious threat to an inmates health especially when being exposed to the Novel Corona Virus . We are demanding as a community that the inmates be removed from this jail and placed on house arrest,moved to another facility given a bond for release or whichever deemed fit for the crime commited for the incarceration until proper cleaning is performed here to stop the spread of this virus, that until the staffing situation becomes a reasonable ratio in comparison with the inmates, be either substituted with another agency with the same qualifications as the positions that need to be filled to accomplish staffing needs or enough staffing is hired to maintain that reasonable ratio,that no discrimination or harm be done to inmates for any reason, that a mutual party ,outside of the local government, be assigned to the position of randomly inspecting to insure that the rights of the inmates are being respected and observed . Its is us as a society that should take pride in protecting our rights as a whole and not discriminate against anyone because in reality we are all human and we all deserve to be equal .
