NOBC Breaking News: Severely Beaten Prisoners Denied Medical Attention
by salaud
Monday Nov 12th, 2007 8:14 AM
Phone contact was made with the three brutalized No Borders Camp prisoners early this morning from jail in El Centro. Much information came to light, including the fact that they were refused medical treatment after repeated requests...this being contrary to what was told to the Legal Support Team by Border Patrol agents at Border Patrol station at around 11pm, who said "They (the prisoners) have refused further medical treatment."
It seems likely that at least two of the badly beaten protestors will be released on their own recognizance today. However, one of the prisoners may have immigration status hurdles to overcome. The charges might likely be assault against a federal agent.
