Have you read the DA's report? According to his investigation, nothing was going on until they opened Hewett's cell for him to go see his visitors. He walked out of his cell in nothing but his boxers. He refused to follow the commands of the deputy to get dressed. He was non-compliant and aggressive. The deputy did what he was supposed to do in order to subdue him.
Once he started the altercation, he was treated like every other inmate, as it should be. He was the aggressor and he should not be treated with kid gloves because of who he is. He is just as capable as any other inmate to harm a deputy. Because of his history in law enforcement, he was being segregated from the other prisoners. That is the only way he needed to be treated differently.
