    FL - Omar Paisley, 17, dies of appendicitis in Miami juvenile facility, June 2003

    Suspension of 14 people. That's it??????????????? A child died for Christ sake. If I ignored my child's plea's and they died, I would be jailed period!!!!!!

    This wasn't adult jail, but Juvenile Hall jail. Some of the kids in some of these still have a chance, if they were stupid and led down the wrong path (I could go in to the Darwinism theory here, but I choose not to this time). Whether they are entitled to GOOD medical care is one thing. Whether they are entitled to ANY medical care (the kid was retching, and you can tell when someone is in extreme pain) is something else.

    Just because something IS, doesn't make it right. If people want to fight the good fight against something like that, that is their right.
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    From January 2009:


    A former nurse at Florida’s Miami Regional Juvenile Detention Center has pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of culpable negligence related to the death of a teenage prisoner. The guilty plea comes five years after the death of 17-year-old Omar Paisley...

    The negotiated plea bargain calls for former nurse Dianne Demeritte to serve one year on probation. She also “agrees that she will voluntarily relinquish her license to practice nursing, and that she will never provide patient care to anyone outside of her own family”...

    Without explanation, prosecutors dropped charges against a second nurse, Gaile Coperfido.
