But many in Pensacola are skeptical.
The Pensacola News Journal reported Escambia County commissioners voted last year to create a new medical director position at the jail and they also added an independent monitoring system to review the health care operations for inmates at the jail.
Wesley, however, said too many inmates have already died in the jail. He said he was reminded of a remark from a family friend: Silence is consent.
So Wesley intends to remain vocal.
“We have to call attention to what’s happening here in Pensacola, Florida,” Wesley said. “We’ve had 7 people to be found dead in this jail and that’s a problem.”
The deaths of inmates at the Escambia County Jail should be thoroughly investigated. Rev. Wesley — and all the families involved — deserve honest accounts of how their loved ones died.
And they shouldn’t have to twist arms to get it.
What do you think?
