11 Texas sheriff workers fired, 6 suspended in inmate death

A Texas sheriff fired 11 department employees and suspended six others without pay this week in connection with the death of an inmate who was found unresponsive in his cell in February after allegedly being hit multiple times by officers. Harris County Sheriff said the terminated employees ’betrayed my trust,’ in their treatment of Jaquaree Simmons, 23. Simmons had been booked on weapons charges.

Fired? That's it? Yeah you guys are really slow to catch on. These ccriminal cops need to be incarcerated. I think a little time in gen pop would broaden their horizons a bit.

Can we be honest for a minute? When a violent b1ack thug tries to fight prison guards what are they supposed to do? Call a social worker? Let him just do what he wants and harm people? Sometimes it’s best to just end a life.

The real question is, why was this man only booked on weapons charges? All gun laws are unlawful

A rebelious person with a criminal history SHOULD understand that he/she needs to completely comply with all orders given to them by the jailers without exception. The problem is that these criminals thinks that they can do what they want, when they want and to disobey lawful orders to the "T" from those jailers who are responsible for them or they will pay the consequences including death. Just freaking comply because you are a dangerous criminal.

"Betrayed my trust"... That's the best you can come up with? Fuck your trust, those POS violated their oath, committed felonies, and above all, murdered someone.
