Not Having Insurance Shouldn't Get You the Death Penalty

A new public defender blog I've just discovered and added to my links, Public Pretender, writes about the terribly sad story from Minnesota where a man arrested for driving without insurance was murdered in the jail by another inmate. Apparently, the alleged murderer was a prison inmate who had been transferred to the local jail to face a charge of assaulting a fellow prison inmate. Strangely, it would seem that the powers that be at the local jail didn't think this merited him being segregated from other inmates.

A serious screw up on the part of the State. From what I read, there were no excuses for what happened.
