It will be interesting to see if Marion County will actually follow thru on this one of many murders that have one on in there, especially just the last few years - least we forget their was no consequence nor punishment to the guy who murdered Robert Haas - in fact Nothin was done on it until the family finally went after the county for wrongful death, but even then only a cash settlement was had, no charges or legal accountability to the inmate who did it, and so many more go Haas's way... could this actually be a turning point? Police have the right to "arrest and detain" If it's for the "safety" of the person from themselves or for the safety of the public... Marion County sheriff's office have always proved themselves in the reverse position... more DIE in their custody that would have lived had they not gone into MCCF custody - scary place that jail, and Lane isn't much better off either!
