Starved Inmate Dies

A man serving a nine year prison sentence at a Kentucky penitentiary has died and the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the prison staff and administration. Their cold-hearted treatment and sheer neglect caused the man to die of self-imposed starvation in the end. 

James Kenneth Embry was an inmate at Kentucky State Penitentiary who was doing time on drug related charges. He had just three more years to go before he would have been a free man. But due to stopping his anti-anxiety medication, Embry started having bouts of paranoia and extreme fear. 

He simply went crazy from the withdrawal symptoms. For hours this poor man would bang his head against the metal bars of his cell. He requested to be put back on the anti-anxiety medication but his pleas went unheard by the heartless staff.    

Finally, a time came when the tormented man stopped eating. He was 57 years of age and had a towering height of six feet. Due to dehydration and anorexic starvation Embry died weighing a mere 138 pounds. 

He had lost a colossal 50 pounds and gave up the ghost when someone in charge refused to send him to a hospital for emergency purposes. An investigation has begun into the horrendous conditions behind the prison walls. 

Several top ranking members of the medical staff and administration have been relieved of their duties. This shameless incidence of human brutality has shocked all the citizens of the state not to mention the rest of the United States. 

It is a moral outrage and deserves to be condemned in the most vocal and practical way. A man’s life is not something to be played around with by those in authority no matter what his past crimes or situation in life. 

Embry could have gone on to become a model senior citizen at the age of 60 when he would have been released from bondage. But it was not to be and he died a tragic and cruel death.
