Senior Alabama lawmaker questions top officials relationship in prison contracts | AL.com
The Southern Poverty Law Center filed a lawsuit last month against the prison system, Commissioner Kim Thomas, and Naglich. The suit, packed with gruesome anecdotes of untreated medical conditions, alleges inadequate health care for Alabama inmates …
Naglich also worked for 13 years in various roles including as an executive with two companies that later merged to form Corizon, Correctional Medical Services and America Service Group.
From the article linked to the word “lawsuit” above:
“The state has long known about these problems but done little to bring prison conditions up to a humane and constitutional level,” SPLC attorney Maria Morris said. “There are too many lives at risk for us to wait any longer. In good conscience, we had no choice but to file this case.”
It’s no exaggeration. Truly.
From the article linked to the word “gruesome” above:
Staph outbreaks. Scabies outbreaks. A footbridge over raw sewage. A guard with TB allowed to continue working. No blood sugar measurements for diabetics. Stroke victim left on a cell floor for days. A blind prisoner being tricked into signing his own “Do Not Resuscitate” form.
