Why should inmates be treated better than the average U.S. taxpayer

July 20, 2012
The Marietta Times

What is this? Sheriff Mincks asking the county commissioners to provide paramedic services at the jail 84 hours a week. He feels the need to "have paramedics there to do an evaluation right away if an inmate were to experience a medical emergency." Well, what about the average American taxpayer or the elderly? If we have a medical emergency, we either have to wait for an ambulance to get to us or be driven to the hospital. Why should they be given better treatment? They are in jail for a reason. Just something to think about. Wake up, America.
