      Due to being an prisoner myself at one point, I very well know what it is like to be denied proper medical treatment or even neglected under certain circumstances when trying to force the issue of demanding what is a legal Right By Law, only to be wrongfully sanctioned and treated cruelly by prison authority figures, who lie and cover up for one another which allows them to think they are above the set prison regulations and guidelines, placed there on behalf of the prisoners and inmates. It is a real tragedy that Sean Levert had to suffer from such an event, knowing he lost a battle with trying to save his own life. No one should ever have to go through that, nor should We have to be petitioning for a Law to be set for something that should be an automatic design and thoroughly enforced. Lives shouldn't be at stake here. I say Pass Sect. 5120.101 - Sean's Law
