ANOTHER DEATH IN THE PRISON
William Kauffman, 56, was scheduled to have a Probation/Parole Violation Hearing the morning he was found dead in the Lancaster County Prison. He was in jail on a “technical parole violation” and was scheduled to have a video/telephone hearing with Judge Dennis Reinaker at 9:00 am on Tuesday, July 28th.
On that morning, he was found unresponsive in his cell at 8:32 am and died later that day. Was this man given the medical care he needed? Did the heat contribute to his death?
There is a petition on Change.org to the county commissioners to improve the conditions at the Lancaster County Prison in light of his death (see below and click here for the petition). Also below is a Facebook post by a friend of Kauffman.
There will be more on this to come…
THE CITY POLICE SUED AGAIN
Click here for the original LIP article shown above from April 16, 2018 about Brandon McCormick and three other police hires and here for today’s LNP article stating Officer McCormick is the subject of a federal lawsuit.
The plaintiff in the lawsuit, Sha-ki Staten, may live in Virginia now but he was a stand-out sports player at McCaskey (pictured above). LNP never mentions that in their article and LNP has never said a word as the city hired white officer after white officer after white officer.
