In other news, Snohomish County Follies

How many more people have to die at the Snohomish County Jail before someone notices?

I seen the news, but wasn’t really paying attention, I heard man died at Snohomish County jail, the family is seen crying, asking why. For some reason I thought it may be in connection with one of the other 5 folks that have died at the jail, perhaps a lawsuit?

News comes on again & I realize it is a new person. I don’t understand why our Washington State Attorney General is not investigating any of this. One life is too many to lose but 6 of them??? Oh wait! Is he so busy with his campaigns that I guess he can’t be bothered with the citizens?

I have to tell you this, I write about the jail, the deaths & the food because the guards themselves have asked me to do so. Even they are worried about the conditions & lack of care. Not the higher ups but the people who have deal with this on a daily basis.

Snohomish County is a very strange creature… I haven’t quite figured it out yet, maybe there is no figuring it out, maybe it’s better not to try.

Anyway here are the stories in our local paper, it should be noted that they did bring up the fact that there has been previous deaths there, when none of the broadcast news reports did, so Kudo’s to Rikki, the thing that concerns me & should scare the family is that they are relying on the Snohomish County Coroner to assess the situation, this should be conducted by an outside agency… (Please click the blue link to read my previous story about their agency troubles.) Please save yourself some nausea & don’t read the comments from the usual ignorant Herald trolls

EVERETT — A 60-year-old Concrete man died overnight Friday while in custody at Snohomish County Jail. The man allegedly had been in a confrontation with jail staff earlier that night and had been shot with an electronic stun gun, Everett police officer Aaron Snell said Saturday. The man had been arrested about 9:30 p.m. Friday after reportedly shoplifting from a gas station in the 3500 block of Broadway. He was booked for investigation of theft, Snell said. At the jail, the man allegedly fought with custody staff and was put into isolation. Jail staff checked on him later, found him in distress and began resuscitation efforts, Snell said. The Everett Fire Department also responded. The man’s name was not released Saturday. His body was taken to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office, which will determine how he died. The death is being investigated by the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team, a cadre of homicide detectives from around the county who probe deaths involving police. It was at least the sixth death at the jail since 2010. Additional details about the investigation weren’t immediately available.

EVERETT — Bill Williams had good years, too. He worked hard running a landscaping business in Skagit County. He liked to play the drums and barbecue. He had a lot of friends. Williams, 60, also had suffered from mental illness since his 20s, according to his family. He died Friday night at the Snohomish County Jail, shortly after being shot with an electronic stun gun during a struggle with jail staff, police said. Williams was arrested about 9:30 p.m. Friday at a Broadway gas station, where he’d allegedly shoplifted. He had been living in Everett recently, receiving services from Compass Health, said his daughter, Trina Blau, 31, of Everett.  Williams was a father of two, and had three small granddaughters. He suffered from bipolar disorder and schizophrenic episodes and tendencies, Blau said. Her father could lose contact with reality, and become violent. The family tried for years to help him, and he’d been hospitalized about a dozen times, she said. Investigators haven’t shared further details about the circumstances surrounding Williams’ death. After the struggle with jail staff, Williams was put into an isolation cell, Everett police officer Aaron Snell said. Jail staff later found him in distress and summoned medics. His body was transferred to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office, which will determine how he died. A medical determination could take weeks. An autopsy was scheduled for Monday, according to the family. Williams’ death also is under investigation by the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team, a cadre of homicide detectives from around the county who probe deaths involving police and the use of force. At least five other people have died at the jail since 2010.

At the end of the day, Mr Williams is still dead, maybe if the City of Everett put as much money into Community Services as they have in trying to railroad me they wouldn’t have people getting killed for no reason. The money could’ve been used for much better purposes. So when your family can’t get help or someone dies thank Mayor Ray Stephenson, prosecutor Mike Fisher, City Attorney James Iles, & the Everett city counsel for spending your money so recklessly…

  1. Snohomish County is just another county in WA State that is proving incapable or unwilling to respect its citizens. I, like you, want to be shown respect. I, like you, am involved in making changes to our most basic, most fundamental right — justice! If there is any thing that I can do to help you please contact me…

  3. I am creating because my best friend has witnessed now two deaths in two months at Snohomish County jail in 2012 of mentally ill and/or physically disabled inmates, there on misdemeanor charges. He has been so traumatized that he has become physically ill but has been told as was I that he could not get medical treatment there unless he paid for it.

    How many people have to die at Snohomish County jail before people care?

    I am looking for more stories from people abuses, neglected and killed at Snohomish county jail.
