  1. Most correction facilities or jails don't listen to people under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
    I'm a recovering alcoholic.
    I was jailed in Ward county jail.
    I was going through bad withdrawals.
    I kept pushing the intercom button, but jailers wouldn't even come check on me. They wouldn't even give me water to drink. One jailer pointed to the floor and told me to lick water off the floor.
    I felt like I was dying.
    Finally they took me to the emergency room.
    I remember a doctor coming out from the ER.
    The doctor yelled at the officer, that brought in to ER.
    Doctor wasn't happy with the officer.

  2. Thank you for covering this. I hope this is investigated so that it never happens again. However, I understand how this could happen, when you have 10 inmates, all in withdrawals with numerous mental health issues to boot, all coming with demands to you at once. It would be difficult and overwhelming. Especially being brand new to the job. I agree with whoever said, what did the inmates do about it? Did you guys tell the guards? Try to talk to her?, etc. So sad.

  3. Doesnt anyone understand that in the endtimes everything whats good is bad and whats bad is good. The jail and or police in north dakota will chase you and kill you and get away with it. Jus like the police want people accountable they also should be. Open your eyes they like the money for the job but really aint jelping no one but their own self.
