"The ROCK - a small dark cemented room where people
being detained are stripped and handcuffed to the ground.
There is a small hole in the ground that they can wiggle around to pee in."
There is an absolutely shocking situation involving human beings and their jailers at the Stephens County Jail in Duncan Oklahoma, where there is a room called "The Rock" aka the 'Drunk Tank'. Unimaginable abuse is reported to take place here, much of it medical - an untreated injury that other prisoners say smells bad, an aids patient covered in blood and the prisoners told to 'clean him up', people put in that concrete room because they are having seizures, who end up breaking bones on the concrete. Families are detailing threats by officials, prisoners are reportedly punished when anyone says anything about the mess.
Since I began working on this story, I have been informed that one of the original five 'free' people protesting these conditions have been arrested and one is in hiding in fear of bogus charges being filed on them. I do not know what the charges could possibly and honestly be at this time. Will update as info becomes available.
This is a scandal waiting to break. Together we will attempt to make these walls so transparent that someone has to clean it up. There is a Minimum Standard of Care for prisoners.
