Tulsa County is now forced to pay massive settlements for what ought to be regarded as criminal mistreatment of the mentally ill.
Elliot Williams was a 37 year old military veteran. He was left to die in an isolation cell at the Tulsa County jail. In 2011, he was demonstrating psychotic and suicidal behavior at an Owasso hotel. The local cop decided to treat him as a criminal rather than a very sick person. He was booked into the Tulsa County jail where his untreated psychosis continued.
The jailer decided that the man was faking it when he rammed his head into a concrete wall and collapsed to the floor.
They decided that they knew he was a faker, so they had the motion-activated video system monitoring his conduct.
Then he died of dehydration.
