ONE MAN’S COUNTDOWN TO DEATH AT RIKERS ISLAND

 

countdown to death

This video serves as a warning to avoid jail like the plague. Once you are in the system, there is nothing you can do, and nobody who works in the jail will care about your needs. It’s a harsh reality that unfortunately left one man dead and a family seeking justice.  Carlos Mercado, 45, who was diabetic, died after 15 hours at the New York jail. Surveillance video shows him collapsed while officers step over him.

Here is another example of why you want to avoid prison. Watch as an inmate goes on a rampage!
