Marilyn Gentile started this petition to Erie County legislators and

There have been four deaths in the last 4 months in the Erie County Holding Center. They have the fifth highest death rate in the country. 31 preventable deaths undersheriff Howard's watch. Hundreds have died after being released from the facilities because of their civil and human rights were denied and not being treated for substance use disorder / mental illness. Inmates suffer needlessly in deplorable conditions. To break this cycle of death we demand Medication-Assisted Treatment. (MAT) the only way to treat this illness is providing medical help.
