Is it going to take someone losing their life to stop this? Open an investigation! The inmates at Logan County detention Center in Sterling Colorado are being treated inhumanely. Inmates are being denied medical care, medications and other basic human rights. One specific Inmate was feeling sick had a terrible migraine and knew that his blood pressure was up he repeatedly called to have medical attention and repeatedly was hung up on and denied and told to sleep it off when finally it got bad enough and they decided to help him his blood pressure was 163/123. This guy could of had a stroke! Inmates are being taunted and punished for crimes they did not commit. Recently Logan county sheriffs deputies tried to give citations to an entire pod for a flooding issue and those that denied to take the citation were put on 23 hour lockdown indefinitely. The inmates have a right to deny a citation and take it to a hearing but they’re being punished for not taking the citation. During this flooding issue the inmates asked if they could have mops to mop up the feces and urine off of the floor that was coming into their cells and they were denied that and told they could live with it and they had to sleep with that over night. Some of these inmates have hepatitis C and that is in itself a safety issue as that is a risk of blood-borne pathogen exposure. In the last 2 months they have been denied clean bedding and have had to live for a month at a time without running water. The guards and nurse just snickered and said use the toilet water. The visitors are being disrespected and talked down to you for no reason, visits are being denied because we are being asked to produce birth certificates for our children. Logan County Jail is absolutely disgusting in the visiting areas nothing has been cleaned in the six months that I have seen it personally. Inmate‘s mail is getting thrown away if it includes anything about their living conditions or if it is addressed to the media. Logan county jail knows that they are doing something wrong and they are trying to hide it.
