Of course it was negligence. Gross negligence, as with scores of other articles I have posted. Wake up, America! Health care in our prisons is a joke, and it is costing YOU BILLIONS of $$$$$$ every year. Read about the needless death of Tom Husar. Unfortunately, his parents are mistaken in thinking that a $5 million verdict will be a deterrent. It won’t; I have seen too many of these! The only possible deterrent is prosecution and...

Trump and Biden condemn shooting of Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies – Duh! Violence is NOT the Answer – MLK taught us that! – kra

Violence never is the solution! tRump’s Tweet, like so man of his others, shows his ignorance; there is no way he can “get much faster with our courts”! The fool should spend more time governing and less time Tweeting! Add to that the fact that he promotes violence, and we must vote him OUT! Excerpts from the Article: President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday denounced what police called an ambush...
