Sadly to say it’s been confirmed that Robert Deangelo Carter, who suffered from a long history of mental illness ended his own life on October 9,2016, in Alabama’s most secure dungeon at Holman.
It’s also been reported by witness’s that Carter has made a deal to start back taking is medications used for his mental disorders in exchange to be released back into population with the warden of Holman.
However Carter was not released, and had requested to see the warden and mental health specialist. After officers ignored Carter’s request Carter then told the same officers if they did not let him out he would kill himself, reported by eye witnesses’s.
This is the second successful suicide within six months inside Holman Correctional Facility lockup. Inmate Tripplett ended his life in April of this year under similar circumstances.
There is no doubt a pattern of neglect in these situations relating to the Alabama Department of Corrections standard operating procedures and it’s staff exist. There’s been numerous reports from the men at Holman that there is no security, no way to communicate to staff, and intentional ignoring of complaints in relation to conditions, and medical issues. Reports of inmates necessity to bang on doors in order to irritate officers enough to go and check on these men.
These conditions are beyond a violation of the Eighth amendment of the United States constitution. It’s a violation of human morals and dignity.
The question has arose and should be answered today by the United States Justice Department…..”how many bodies do you need?”
