Click below to see the entire lawsuit filed today by my friend and great lawyer, Stephen Hampton, Esq. (one of few lawyers with the skill and the guts to sue state officials! 🙂 ) concerning the death of inmate Luis Cabrera, who died an agonizing death lying on the prison floor at the feet of medical staff, due to their wilful neglect.

As you peruse the Complaint, or even just these excerpts, you see the attention to detail (preparation!) which makes a great attorney like Steve.

However, this is the only real solution: How to avoid the deaths of prison guards and inmates … or do you want to join the countless officials who refuse to acknowledge this huge problem called prison abuse? 

Too many heads still are in the sand regarding this sort of prison abuse!

Excerpt from the Complaint:

1. On November 8, 2018, one day after his birthday Luis Cabrera died in agony at the feet of the medial staff employed by Connections Community Support Programs, Inc to provide medical care for serious medical conditions of men held at Howard R. Young Correctional Institution. Luis was maliciously denied necessary medical care for over two (2) days despite his
screams and cries for help. Ultimately, he died from a perforated duodenal ulcer, a treatable condition if timely proper care is given. Under Delaware law, denying proper care to a man suffu•ing from an obviously serious medical condition, could be seen as criminally negligent homicide. 11 Del. C. 631.
