“A woman was locked for four days in a tiny holding cell in a northern Arkansas courthouse, forgotten by the authorities and left without food or water, the local Sheriff’s Department said Tuesday.
The woman, Adriana Torres-Flores, 38, a longtime illegal immigrant from Mexico, slept on the floor with only a shoe for a pillow, and with nothing to drink except her own urine, The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported. There was no bathroom in the cell.”
I mean, “oversights” happen, but imagine being the responsible bailiff – you are doing your job, you lock a person up, but then you go home and four entire days pass and you don’t even remember this person existed. I really have a hard time imagining that sort of scenario. I just, don’t even know what to say… I hope that bailiff becomes an advocate for immigrant’s rights to make up for his oversight.
