Ah, the old "thoughts and prayers." This acting director in that statement seems to contradict herself. First, she says we're sorry this person killed himself. Then she tells us there will be a thorough investigation to determine what happened. Sounds like the outcome of this "investigation" is pretty well pre-determined.

So the Jackson County Sheriff is going to investigate a death in the Jackson County jail and determine whether Jackson County's jail staff were in any way at fault for what happened? At a time when Jackson County has already lost over a million dollars settling lawsuits over that shit hole jail? Anyone else see a conflict of interest here?

I thought Frank White would be a great county executive. I pray he gets replaced soon. How many deaths does this make it at the jail since he got this job?
