Suicide at Lewis Prison: Jesse Cabonias.

Jesse Joe Cabonias is just the latest Arizona state prisoner to kill himself; prisoner homicides and suicides have skyrocketed under the present administration. Why can't the most fortified police agency in the state - and the best funded - keep their prisoners safe? I hope this fellow has family with standing to sue so that they can compel an answer to that question in court...too many ADC prisoners are dying this way. Our condolences to Jesse's loved ones, wherever you may be.

Knowing these kinds of events also bring up feelings for violent crime victims and survivors, our thoughts go out to the loved ones of this man's elderly victim as well.
