The worst jail in America - Business Insider


The worst jail in America - Business Insider: On December 2, 2013, jail supervisors tried to give Martin an orange jumpsuit to change into before they moved him to a new cell, according to an affidavit filed in the criminal case against Sanchez. Martin refused to hand over the clothes he had been wearing, and stuck his hand out of his cell to prevent officers from locking him in.

From there things got violent. Sanchez subdued Martin with the help of other officers, pushing his face onto the jail floor outside the cell and jerking his arms up over his head, according to the affidavit. In the process, Sanchez and other officers allegedly delivered numerous blows to Martin and dislocated his right shoulder, causing massive internal bleeding and hemorrhaging. Martin had a punctured lung and broke several ribs. He bled to death early the next day.

Martin's death doesn't appear to be an isolated incident. The Oklahoma County Jail has long been plagued by violence between fellow inmates and abuse by officers on inmates.
