And nobody is gonna have to pay for it; disgusting! Got this
off Facebook, as this is not a source I've ever even seen before. All of this over pot charges.
Michael Saffioti, 22, died in a Snohomish County Jail cell after being locked up on a marijuana charge. Now, thanks to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department, nobody is being held accountable.
Witnesses testified that jail guards mocked the young man as he lay dying, but the Sheriff's Office announced last week that it would not recommend any charges against guards or staff for the tragedy, reports Jon Humbert at KOMO 4.
Saffioti died of what his mother, Rose Saffioti, believes was a severe allergic reaction; he is allergic to dairy products. He'd had run-ins with the law over marijuana and needed to turn himself in last July after missing a court date.
His mother said her son only wanted to serve his time, as he had done before. She said that she had made it clear to jail authorities, every time, that he is allergic to milk.
"They have a huge medical chart," Rose said. "Michael was transported for an allergic reaction before from that unit."
After meeting with detectives several times, Rose learned that Michael had been given oatmeal that may have contained milk -- specifically against the medical alerts.
I've been in, and seen Jefferson County jail do much the same thing. This is an outrage, and someone needs to scream bloody murder until this is investigated!
