Hernando jail inmate commits suicide | Tampa Bay Times
BROOKSVILLE — A Hernando County inmate committed suicide Tuesday night, according to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.
Detention deputies found Justin Michael Simonds, 26, of Lacoochee, around 7:10 p.m. He was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The article also said that an official cause of death from the medical examiner was not immediately available.
Of course it isn’t. This is Florida; Rick Scott’s Florida, the more dead inmates, the merrier, apparently.
The FBI is supposed to investigate law enforcement’s failure to protect us from harm under their defined Color of Law responsibilities, but I’ve had agents lie to me about that responsibility, and heard of agents lying to others in the very same manner. Sadly, it seems that only those of us that have been lied to know not to believe screenwriters’ portrayals of the FBI.
Per the promos I saw last night, ABC’s new “Quantico” series will make its already-misinformed viewers even dumber about the FBI’s level of professionalism, although the show is supposed to be about a conspiracy and coverup. There’s little chance that ABC will address the harsh everyday evidence of the FBI just not giving a damn, like lying to ordinary people about what their responsibilities are, and burying and reburying their involvement with numerous DNA-discredited dog handlers for decades and leaving knowingly wrongful convictions intact, and doing virtually no clean-up after discrediting their hair/fiber analysis and Comparative Bullet Lead Analysis although they cloud tens of thousands of convictions, and somehow misplacing 156 more computers than Edward Snowden has managed to keep secure, etc.
Lest you think that I make things up about the FBI as I go along, please read Senator Patrick Leahy’s 3/27/07 press release, and think again.
If the FBI did what it’s supposed to do when governors like Rick Scott won’t duly investigate suspicious inmate deaths, it would have been crawling all over Florida jails and prisons the very minute they learned of the coverup of mentally ill Dade Correctional Institution inmate Darren Rainey being scalded to death by officers in 2012.
Probably half or more of the inmate deaths since then would have been prevented, including Richard Mair’s suicide at Dade C.I. in 2013 and Lavar Valentin’s homicide at Dade C.I. in 2014. There are three 2015 Dade C.I. deaths under investigation – Daniel McGee, Ernest J Brown, David R Atwell.
Perhaps Justin Simonds could have turned his life around; he was only 26.
Suicide is not a natural death. We can’t allow any authority to pretend it is. Especially the FBI.
