Wake up San Antonio we are the voices and Share Holders of the Bexar County Adult Detention Center in the last 8 years of Jail Standard Inspections the Bexar County Jail/Annex has failed 6 years in a roll it makes you wonder how the Sheriff and County Commissioners Neglected the Safety Standards and Allow the Inhuman Living Conditions,and Ignore Medical Treatment to the inmates while the guards get away with mistreatment to inmates and it's Implorable Social Skills among Staff at the Bexar County Jail!!

mystic my husband is a MHMR patient and is in the Bexar county Jail. He was first abused by Balcones Hights police then transported to Bexar County. He was not fed for at least 5 days. He wasn't given his meds. and tried to commite sucied due to not given his medications. He has yet to be treated for the injuries inflicted by Balcones hights police department. Since he has been in Bexar County ( since 9-13-09) he has witnessed bexar county guard come i a MHMR cell and beat an MHMR inmate till his teeth were left in the day room anda puddle of blood that fallowed his trail as they dragged him out of his cell. The inmate had done nothing wrong. My husband was passing A LOT of BLOOD probably from the police brutality from Balcones Hights and didn't get proper medicl attention then either. When he tried to kill himself they NEVER notigyed anyone!! I called on hissecond day there and informed them of his mental illness and his potential suciadale tendancies and they blew me off. then he almost succeeded in ending his life to stop the voice (mental illness induced) and they did nothing. If we don't stand together now this will nver stop!!
