Bail, fines, punishment
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
I think that pepper spraying someone until their body is too toxic for medical staff to touch is cruel but in Lee County it is business as usual.
The District 21 Medical Examiner ruled his death was a homicide because he had been restrained and sprayed with pepper spray by law enforcement officers. But to this day, nobody has ever been charged with a crime, and the Lee County State Attorney cleared the sheriff’s office of any wrong doing.
FDLE refuses to reopen the case.
We have to be the ones to stay ENOUGH!
Please sign this petition to have the case opened and people held accountable for Nick’s death. When the light is shined directly on the Lee County Jail, the sheriff and the state of Florida then all of the inmates there will be less likely to be tortured. We have to expose the monsters.
I also ask that you contact our governor, tell him as the governor of the state of Florida he has a responsibility to protect all of our citizens, and to uphold the US and FL constitution as he swore in his oath of office. If he allows Lee County to continue their reign of terror he is just as responsible as the ones actually torturing and killing others.
Contact Governor Rick Scott today.
