Basically, a guy I knew died today in Morton Hall. We called him ‘the Doctor’. He was living in the UK for 27 years now. He got arrested for false documents and sentenced to 6 months in jail. After that, they brought him to Morton Hall where he stayed for 2 years.
The guy, I knew today, is a really, really nice person. He exercised a lot. He was very fit. So when he got sick on Monday, it was really confusing because he was a very fit guy.
He fell down and was foaming at the mouth in his cell. Some guys called the nurse around 3 o’clock in the afternoon. The nurse came and then left and he got worse. They came back at 6 o’clock. And the ambulance came there about 7 o’clock. And he died this morning ( on Wednesday)
As I understand, when they were in the hospital the doctors called the home office and asked for his release papers. I thought this was really cold hearted because he has been applying for bail for a long time and only when he was on his death bed did they give him release papers.
He’s a friend of mine. I’ve known him since June when I got into this place. He was really a nice person and was always willing to help people. He would just help people through the goodness of his heart for nothing in return. He was a really nice person. You don’t often find people like that. When you find them it’s like a diamond in the rough, you know.
He’s also the type of person who you can talk to if you’re stressed out in detention. He would talk to you and say keep strong when he saw that you were depressed or stressed out. When a guy like that leaves us like this, it puts a lot of stress on the people who really connected with him on a spiritual level.
You see, if he was given bail and left here. People would have been proud and happy. But the way he left, really weighs heavy on your heart.
The media needs to know about this. This place is a stressful place. He’s been punished. We don’t have anyone to stand for us. I just want the home office to start helping people and stop being so vindictive and punishing people. There are not all bad people here and people deserve a second chance. They are breaking people’s spirits.
