Tackle hospital deaths after the issues at the jail 

While I share Shredder's outrage over prison abuses, his/her minimizing of hospital deaths is sorely disappointing.

The fact is, according to the British Medical Journal, medical error is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. The very thing that is supposed to heal us and keep us healthy is actually killing us, in great numbers. Our medical system is seriously broken, from insurance regulations determining treatment, to sky-rocketing costs of vital medication, to over-prescription of opioids and antibiotics, to mandatory over-vaccination of our children—and our medical treatment is making us sick, sick, sick.

SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow is right to be outraged, and I urge him to go after pharmaceutical CEOs and other medical industry bigwigs and hold them accountable for the harm they have caused. But only after he makes right the problems right here at the SLO County Jail.
