"County Attorney Leslie Johnson says the Sheriff's Office is still gathering details".
" "It’s not a hate crime that the SBI is involved in."
If the investigation is still gathering details, how can anyone be sure that it's not a hate crime.
This individual that was beaten is supposed to be in the care of the state or county system, and it's someone's job to make sure this doesn't happen.
Fist fights are sure to occur. The inmates are there for a reason. But they have a right to safety and security against 4,5,6, people attacking and almost killing them.
I'm sure the Sheriff and jail personnel are upstanding people, however, when investigating possible problems, the SBI is there for an impartial determination of facts.
""Let it run its course. Just give us an opportunity. It’s just been two weeks," Johnson said."
Two weeks is a long time, when your in the hospital beaten almost into a coma.
I'm sure the person would want a speedy and through look by an agency to handle an investigation independent of local officials.
