Another Inmate Bites the Dust!

REDWOOD FALLS, Minn. (AP) _ The state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension was investigating on Monday after the death of an inmate at the Redwood County Jail.

The body of the 35-year-old Granite Falls woman was found around 5 p.m. Saturday hanging in her assigned cell. The woman had been arrested Friday evening on a failure to appear warrant on drug related charges.

Jail workers and paramedics tried unsuccessfully to revive her.

No, now we claim someone wasn't doing their job, watching out for the well-being of the inmate. Part of the job of being a gaurd is to keep an eye on the inmates and have enough knowledge to notice the warning signs of someone contemplating an act of this sort.

There is one agency responsible for the inspection and certification of municipal and county detention facilities - The Minnesota Department of Corrections. That Department is headed by a political appointee of the Governor's office. The current commissioner is Joan Fabian, the former head of Ramsey County Corrections. Though well respected in her career, she is surrounded by clueless people (Eric Lipman, et al). Sorry Joan, it's time to move on. The Governor should remove politics from the job of Commissioner, and serious consider making the position something other that a political gift to contributors and supporters. This isn't the first time we've had a sub-standard Commissioner. We're still dealing with the poor (actually horid) tenue of Sheryl Ramstad-Hvass. Things need to change.

Another reason to get a professional in the DOC Commissioner's chair
