My boyfriend is an inmate at Men's Central Jail right now. He is in high power and he is going Pro Per (defending himself). The Cop's don't like that. they planted a razor blade in his cell and then the next day on his way back to his cell while in shackles the cops beat him up. They slammed him into the wall face first and the took him to the floor. They won't even take him to medical. They gave him 40 days in the hole and have him on a disciplinary diet. There has to be something that can be done. This treatment is wrong and these cops should not be allowed to get away with this. What can we do that will actually get some results?

Somebody help us!!!!!

With our economy in it's condition - you'd think that the cops wouldn't allow themselves to be in a position to be sued.
Crazy ain't it.
