Oklahoma jailers ignored prisoner's death cries for several days: Video
Almost five years have passed since the death of the 26-year-old Terral Ellis Jr., but the video capturing the last hours of the prisoner's life is shocked. Dying of pneumonia, voluntarily surrendering to the Ellis police, prayed for help for two days, but the prison staff simply ignored the prisoner's death throes.
According to official story, Terral Ellis Jr. He personally surrendered to the authorities after a warrant was drawn up against him in the case of DUI. On October 10, 2015, he came to the police and died after less than two weeks.
“In the roughly one hour of video obtained by CBS News, several employees can be seen and heard walking by his cell and mocking him as he screams.”
"If you can't breathe, how can you talk?" one employee said.
The video shows all the incompetence of the then staff of the prison, who indifferently watched the prisoner's agony and did not provide him with medical care.
According to CBS News, a former prison nurse said the evidence was fabricated because examining the unconscious Ellis did not reveal any critical abnormalities in his health..
“Former jail nurse Theresa Horn is heard screaming at Terral about faking an illness ("I'm sick and tired of f****** dealing with your ass. Ain't a damn thing wrong with you"), less than four hours before he was found unresponsive in his cell. She told Ellis that EMS had found nothing wrong with him.”
Currently, the incident is being investigated by the FBI and the local sheriff’s office. The case is pending for possible criminal prosecution of prison staff.
