On Wednesday 12/15/2010, officer Mingo while working Unit 3-B, got into a verbal argument with an inmate housed in 3-B-#27 named Timothy Sanders #1035382. She then went and got a spray bottle that contained bleach and sprayed this inmate in the face and eyes to try to attack him.
The inmate had to be treated by medical staff. Lt Bruce Strand had a camera brought down, and some staff were observed laughing over the incident. Several prisoners wrote Affidavits to their witnessing this assault by officer Mingo.
Inmate killed in Level 4
On 12-16-2010, the yard was closed for an Inmate to Inmate killing in the new Level 4 housing area in Unit 7.
The Hispanic prisoner killed his celly, we´re not sure why, but the prisoner who killed his celly has a history of assaults and mental issues that the prison clearly has failed to address.
How many more people have to die, or be assaulted by staff before someone in our society will take notice of the Nevada Prison System´s failure to provide a proper structure in its facilities?
The wardens who run these prisons need to be held accountable for their lack of leadership and the abuses they allow to flourish under their reign.
