Apparently, according to some sparse news reports, this was the cause of death of two inmates at Attica Correctional Facility last week. The idea is that two inmates in separate cells coincidentally died of drug overdoses on the same day, and maybe a third almost died but was taken to the hospital.
That’s the idea. Maybe it’s just me, but it would seem a few details might be missing from this account. But an investigation is ongoing. So there’s that, then.
We’ll follow up on this as best we can around here, and as we have already. We note that this does not seem high on anyone’s list of concerns except ours, but we humbly persist anyway. We won’t prejudge, we have no agenda other than the unarguable concern that the people we lock up are not punished beyond that by some kind of abuse or neglect.
That is unarguable, right?
