Big Surprise: Feds Conclude Medical and Mental Health Care at Dallas County Jail is Grossly Inadequate

The feds have finally submitted their report to Dallas County on their investigation of the sanitary conditions, and treatment of the physically and mentally ill at the Dallas County Jail. Unsurprisingly, the report finds the care at the jail to be grossly inadequate and in violation of the constitutional rights of the inmates. I hope some sort of meaningful change results. I'm not sure if the feds are going to pursue any kind of enforcement action, but something needs to be done. And soon. The report cites numerous deaths that were directly caused by the inadequate health care at the jail. It is about time that someone was held accountable.
