One comment on “Officers ‘justified’ in suffocating suicidal prisoner to death – the case of Nicholas Harris

  1. Yet another story of a death in custody and no accountability.
    Unfortunately my brother is in the above mentioned statistics.
    A suicide while on ‘remand’. He was in prison for 7 days.
    In my brothers case the Coroner was highly critical of the way the prison treated my brother. Prescribed medications being altered, when these medications did not work his medications were changed back to what was originally prescribed and then those medications were not dispensed to him.
    Great gaps between what the prison Doctors expect of nursing staff and the nursing staff carrying out the Doctors instructions and dispensing medications.
    At the inquest the family asked for accountability, someone must be responsible for not dispensing medications, and not completing paper work and not following procedures.
    How the hell as a society can we let this continue, it is wrong, so wrong.
    But how the hell can we change it??
