On June 30th, Kerry Wyane Bennett was found unresponsive in his bunk around 4 am. This happened just days after another inmate, Grant R. Sleeper, died resulting from environmental heat exposure. The ACLU, American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia, is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate conditions at the Richmond City Jail. If Constitutional or Federal laws that protect prisoner’s rights are being violated, then the jails or prisons can be sued. For more information on the deaths of these inmates, refer to the Richmond Times Dispatch.
