I feel like all this random stuff is delaying my rehire process because everyone is too busy with the media shit storm to be focusing on the paperwork I'm waiting for Tongue

And it seems to be going from bad to worse... what the hell is going on in there? Confused

People playing the blame game instead of fixing the problems, most of which boil down to lack of funding, severe overcrowding, and a critical staffing shortage.

As for this article, hard to say. There are a lot of people there, some with typical illnesses and many more screwed up from decades of drug abuse, so it's inevitable that some of them will die from time to time regardless of what anyone does. The only thing it mentions that might indicate that a (relatively) natural death was not the case, which would have otherwise been my first guess given that it happened at 3 a.m., is the fact that they said there was an "incident." Without anything more to go off of, it's anyone's guess. At 3 a.m. everyone except minimum security is locked in their individual cells sleeping. The only time anyone is let out is in the case of a medical emergency. So if I had to play the guessing game (which, unlike the media, I hate to do), I'd say it was either an altercation with a cellmate or an incident stemming from a response to a medical emergency.

EDIT: And here's more on that...
Bed sheets do seem to be the most common tool for committing suicide in jail.

Ok I don't know what to think about this any more... except that we spend way too much on managers (HELLO! "Sunshine List") & "studies" and nothing on fixing the problems. My wife works in the palliative care field and they are very short on nurses but have a hell of a lot of "directors"

My 1 1/2 year old vomited on his tray and before I had a chance to clean it up he quickly grabbed a cracker and started using it as dip.

Count yourself lucky if that's the worst that will happen.

It was just the latest. I mean I deal with poop and stuff like that fairly regularly, both from the baby and from doody flinging adults once I go back to corrections, but the vomit dip thing happened this morning and I just happened to find it quite creative.

The following happened when my daughter was at the that age:

She was sitting in her high chair (Is that a thing in the US?) while I was cleaning out the table. Her mother had given her a chocolate cracker:

Something like this:

And was helping her older daughter in the bathroom.

On one of my trips my lovely spawn holds out her fingers and offers me some chocolate that's stuck on them. So I go:

Awwwww, thanks sweetie.

And put it in my mouth. But something was wrong. It's taste, it was off. Nothing like chocolate. Slowly a sense of dread settles on my feeble mind. I pick her out of the high chair and check her diaper aaaaand yup. It was full. The little fucker wasn't offering me chocolate. She was telling me she needed a fresh diaper.

Oh how I much prefer children that can talk.
