    Death Sentence: 'Alarming' number of inmates dying in local US jails

    Being put in the slammer in America can be a life-threatening proposition. The most recent data from the U.S Ministry of Justice shows more than 11 thousand people died in local jails in the decade to 2011. As RT's Ameera David reports, some of those hadn't even been charged.

    Is this just more proof that police in this country are trying to cover something up? This is horrible and incredibly disgusting.

    Haven't watched it mostly because there is no such thing as the "U.S Ministry of Justice".

    A socialist upset at government "killing people?" That's ironically amusing.

    however, that's 11,000 people. In 11 years. In 2010 2.4 million people died.

    I think a little perspective is needed here, just for starters.

    Our culture is too despondent to do anything about this or other glaring social problems.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    The leading cause of death among jail prisoners was suicide, accounting for 29% of all deaths. The probability of a prisoner committing suicide went down as the size of the jail increased. The suicide rate among the smallest jails was 6 times higher than among the largest jails.

    At 41 deaths per 100,000 prisoners, heart disease was the leading cause of death in the 50 largest jails. The AIDS-related death rate was 7.5 times higher (15 per 100,000) within the 50 largest jails than in jails with an average daily population of under 1,000 (2 per 100,000). The homicide rate in the 50 largest jails was triple that of all other jails, but the intoxication death rate in the smallest jails (31 per 100,000) was quadruple that of the 50 largest jails (8 per 100,000).

    Deaths due to accidents (4 per 100,000) and homicide (3 per 100,000) remained constant throughout the reporting period. The death rate for intoxication grew from 6 per 100,000 in 2000 to 10 per 100,000 in 2007. In 93% of the deaths reported, an autopsy was performed. In 6% of deaths among jail prisoners, no definitive cause of death was determined.
    When the jail population is standardized to the demographics of the U.S. population as a whole, the leading causes of death are, in order of prevalence: suicide, heart disease, intoxication, AIDS and cancer. For the U.S. general population, the leading causes of death are heart disease, cancer, cerebrovascular disease (stroke), chronic lower respiratory disease and accidents. The suicide rate for jail prisoners was triple that of the general population. Clearly, this report indicates a need, especially for smaller jails, to expend additional resources to prevent prisoner suicides.

    You tube hype video vs. reality check. Reality wins. Nothing to see here folks.

    I merely find things amusing, like someone pushing for a democratic socialist system of government "upset" by "government" killing people. That's like a PETA meeting being catered by a BBQ joint.

    Anyhoots, I also followed up with statistics, reality. You video is just silly emotional drivel, there is no cover up of something foul going on. Jail sucks, don't commit crimes, don't end up in jail.

    You brought it on yourself with the invocation of the mythical U.S Ministry of Justice, which sounds like something a socialist would think was a real agency.

    I see you've waved the white flag as my statistics post completely thrashed your little heart tugger youtube fail. Nice strawman, wherein did I imply "socialist governments in history are the only governments that kill and imprison people"? I didn't. I was merely mocking your crocodile tears about jail deaths. I suppose you could be willfully ignorant of the point of Irony I was alluding too, but I doubt it.
