Default Baton Rouge inmate awaiting trial dies after nurse, officers ignored asthma

A lawsuit alleges a Baton Rouge man died from an asthma attack awaiting trial on an attempted murder charge after corrections staff ignored his pleas for life-saving medical care.
The family of Cecil Williams, 20, filed a wrongful death and negligence lawsuit Wednesday against LaSalle Corrections, LLC, a private company that operates the Madison Parish Correctional Center in Tallulah, where Williams died. LaSalle did not reply to a request for comment.

And, THAT, my friends is how private prisons keep costs down. Sorry to say it like that, but it is what it is.
