    You talk about a f*ck up!
    5 days this kid was left in a 5x10 holding cell with no food or water.
    He drank his own urine to stay alive.
    Holy Hell...well...he will be a millionaire now!

    This kind of criminal negligence should be major news but not a peep out of the A.P. and even Fox hasn't said anything. Did the federal government put a blackout on the story?

    It is unacceptable, however, I have a difficult time viewing criminals as victims.

    Did you read the story. He was released. As in NO charges. lthen they sort of lost him...how exactly is he a criminal?


    Oh and one more freaky part of this was he was cuffed. To me...that really really makes me wish he got more than 4 mil.
