TAXPAYERS SHELL OUT $1M AFTER OFFICERS FORCE MOM TO GIVE BIRTH INTO A TOILET, LETTING BABY DIE

Taxpayers in South Carolina will not only be left with the optics of having an inmate give birth in her jail cell and whose baby died in the toilet, but they’re also on the hook for the $1.15 million dollar lawsuit the woman just won against the state. The State of South Carolina and two healthcare companies responsible for the former inmate’s healthcare while in prison will be paying up for what seems to be the grossest of negligences: allowing a baby to die in jail.

Sinetra Johnson will get $750,000 from the state Department of Corrections and $200,000 from both Medustrial and MedFirst, healthcare providers for South Carolina’s prisons. Johnson reportedly found out she was pregnant for the first time just two days before getting sentenced to two years in prison for a simple parole violation.

At six and a half months, she gave birth to twins while imprisoned in Camille Griffin Graham Correctional Institution located in South Carolina’s capital of Columbia.

Johnson says both she and the prison system knew she was pregnant with more than one child. However, when Johnson started having contractions she wasn’t quite due. In fact the babies were more than a month early.

After having alerted the guards to her belief she was in labor, she gave birth to her first baby in a prison toilet after being ignored. The second baby was born in the appropriate medical unit, but an autopsy confirmed the first baby could have been saved had Johnson been given adequate care and attention.

The State newspaper interviewed Johnson who says she did not get adequate medical care for herself or her twins. She said no ultrasound nor vaginal medical exam was ever conducted on her. So when the twins were being born Johnson says she knew something wasn’t right.

I knew something was wrong…It just wasn’t the normal feeling that I had during the 25 weeks prior.

Born at 11:15 pm, Karmin was delivered into a prison toilet. She was still inside her amniotic sack filled with fluid but was suffocating because she was not breathing oxygen. The baby should have been removed from the sack and allowed to breathe air but guards, when they eventually arrived, ordered the other inmates not to touch the baby and to leave it inside the toilet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Monsters still live among us; and unfortunately, many are employed by the State prison systems, where they can comfortably hide behind prison policies which increase recidivism, and cause horrendous physical and mental anguish to those incarcerated.

That this should never have happened to this young woman, or her oldest twin, is an absolute moral, and ethical, no-brainer; that it did happen, demonstrates incontrovertibly, that South Carolina has an active, if occult , policy of assassinating the infants of women inmates.

That the officer demanding that the oldest twin be suffocated in the toilet, was unclear that such an order was a crime against humanity, means they need to be publicly fired, and never hired by the State of South Carolina ever again, and should be financially liable for as much of the fees against the state for this case as humanly possible.

And South Carolina Governor McMaster, you have one hell of a lot of prison reform work with which you need to get busy, and immediately, to insure that this never, ever happens again to a young woman in labor in your states' prisons.
