jailI was reading a story today online that just infuriated me. An inmate from the Pueblo County jail in Denver is suing the former sheriff, the current sheriff, six guards and their supervisors. The suit, which is being filed for an unspecified amount of money claims

Authorities did next to nothing to ensure that the jail was secure and that the Plaintiff could not escape.

The inmate Scott Anthony Gomez, Jr. alleges that guards have sprayed him with pepper spray, shot him with a stun gun, and beaten and kicked him without a reason. Well I’ll give you one …. He escaped with another inmate in November of 2006 and was caught two days later. He also states after climbing out a hole in the ceiling he was seriously injured when he fell 40 feet while trying to scale down the side of the jail. Oh Poor Baby, maybe you should not try to escape from jail where you were put for a reason!

So how in our society can a criminal sue for something as ridiculous as that and we could not sue the negligent people involved with the death of our son. How is that a Great Legal System? This man is a convicted criminal that should take away the right to sue anyone let alone the sheriffs department because your dumb ass escaped from jail. Should we mention the amount of money that it is going to cost the taxpayers for the county to defend this frivolous suit? People like you and I work hard everyday for everything that we have in life, some criminal should not be able to place a bigger burden on society, we already have to pay for his meal, lodging, cable TV, ect. Although the article did not say what Gomez was originally in jail for, if he is trying to escape, numerous times, it must be a serious crime. Remember seeing the days of the gallows, I think that would be cheaper way to take care of the more serious offenders.
