I don’t know about you, but if the medics who oversaw my medical visits–14 times within one month–didn’t realize my very flesh was being eaten, I’d change doctors. Then again, I’m in the Free World and can. Inmates can’t. That’s why this Washington case is so, so sad: after months of pain and a string of medical visits, Ricardo Mejia was taken to a free-world hospital, where he died an unnecessary death . The lawsuit said, “While in state custody, Ricardo Mejia’s medical providers ignored obvious signs of infection and serious illness and he literally rotted to death under their care through negligence and deliberate indifference.” Even that negligence didn’t allow the court to find any one person actually guilty of neglect. What does it take?
