Suicide Behind Bars

This is a Special Report by Richard French on suicide in Nassau County Jail, Long Island. It was reported that over two years five men had committed suicide while in jail, including a veteran of the war in Iraq….

A report quotes “grossly inadequate care” and “Lack of appropriate supervision.”
The Medical Review Board deems this to have been a preventable death with inadequate provision of medical and mental health care.”

The latest suicide – a veteran of the Iraq war has prompted serious allegations of misconduct, neglect and medical malpractice against the county and its jail.
