Prison Guards Mock Disabled Inmate Who Was Gassed To Death On Facebook

A handful of correctional officers are accused of mocking an inmate who died in a Carrabelle, Florida prison while begging for medical attention. The officers were responding to story published in the Miami Herald last week about an active lawsuit against corrections for the death of Randall Jordan-Aparo. They called the dead inmate a “b*tch” and other names on a private Facebook page dedicated to Florida corrections officers.

Jordan-Aparo, 27, allegedly spent four entire days begging for medical help. According to court records, medical staff dismissed his desire to take him to a hospital and instead gave him mere Tylenol pills for his ailments. According to the Miami Herald, he suffered from a rare genetic blood disorder, which was noted in his prison medical file.

When Jordan-Aparo disagreed with his treatment, he was allegedly put in an isolation cell where he was sprayed with a “chemical restraint agent.”

August 3, 1944: 3000 Roma Gypsies Gassed At Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp

On August 3, 1944 the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp gassed almost 3,000 Roma Gypsies.

The Gypsies had been fighting back. One rebellion in May caused SS workers to withdraw after they were attacked by Gypsies armed with stones and sticks. The Nazis feared that the uprising in the Gypsy part of the camp could spread to other areas, so they planned the “Final Solution” for this date. The so-called solution involved liquidating the remaining Gypsies. Men, women and children (2,897 people in total) were loaded on trucks, taken to gas chamber V, and murdered. Then their bodies were burned in pits next to the crematorium.

It is estimated that in total, 20,943 gypsies were gassed in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. The Gypsies were primarily from Germany and territories that were annexed to the Reich. A smaller number of Gypsies were brought in from Poland, Hungary, Yugoslavia, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Norway.
