SPECIAL NOTE: On May 5, 2005 WHEN fifteen local citizens were arrested by Valdosta City Officials and confined in the Lowndes County Jail for addressing their elected officials. That inmates informed us of six alleged other deaths not on this list. However, because we cannot verify them we have omitted their names but feel sure they are correct. (They believe they were sent home and to the hospital to later die instead of dying in the jail).

23. [ ] Check With Sheriffs Depart, News Media Whiteout, and South Georgia Medical, former inmates and jail medical facility.

24. [ ] Check With Sheriffs Depart, News Media Whiteout, and South Georgia Medical, former inmates and jail medical facility.

26. [ ] Check With Sheriffs Depart, News Media Whiteout, and South Georgia Medical, former inmates, and jail medical facility.

28. [2009Nathaniel Sloan, Age 42, DIED SEPTEMBER 26, 2009, Medical Facility, arrested July 13, 2009, Burglary by Valdosta Police Department, presented himself to the medical facility with a fever, had been isolated since the previous day, was on medication, nurse checked on him at 1:48 am, appeared to be doing fine, 30 minutes later Nurse came he was NOT BREATHING PROPERLY. Nurse called the EMTs.


We must look at the Jail Medical staff, Inmates themselves who keep returning to the Jail, Pastors, Politicians, Citizens and ourselves for what appears to be crimes against humanity.

Then there is U.S. District Court Judge Hugh Lawson of the Middle District of Georgia that identified nearly 105 violations in the jail, back in 1997, from a law suit from sever former inmates.

In 1997, The Honorable Judge Lawson rendered a decree in Civil Action #89-54-VAL. But no one seems to have followed up on HIS decree--and it expired, without action ever being taken. How sad?

Most Americans believes that the general public have a right to know the citizens who perish in their tax paid facility, and that inmates should live to have their day in court. But it seems that our local television stations and newspapers make a special effort NOT to report the deaths that occur in our jail. Local citizen can only ask why?

Moreover inmates insist that fellow inmates are either sent home, or released to the hospital to die. While local news media ignore many of these deaths. Family members claim that they do not get proper medical treatment. While we cannot verify this but there are many letters and official statements in local civil rights archives to this fact. This information is always available for review and to be used for a valid investigation from an outside agency.

There will never be a valid investigation unless someone comes in from outside the state of Georgia and investigate these deaths, the medical facility and type treatment given.  We have proven time and time again that local television, and newspapers failed to report important news to the general public. That inaccurate and false reporting was done concerning several issues concerning the remaining Barber Park, death of Willie James Williams, problems at Polling place and racial threats received and who was the alleged victims of such threats among others.

The citizens must hold their elected officials, news media outlets, scared family members, pastors, friends, nurses among others, accountable for being human being and caring for someone outside of themselves.

Names above were provided from the Valdosta Daily Times, Local Television Stations, Websites, The Lake Park Post, Inmates calls, and letters from the jailed, inmates family members, love ones, friends, public records, Law Enforcement Officers who care, and from the Lowndes County Sheriffs Departments own records provided to Edward Dubois (Georgia State President of the NAACP).

On May 5, 2005, inmates gladly gave their names and talked about other deaths that never reached the general public.  Moreover as we review the above list and feel the pain of these inmates family members and love ones. We must NOT, forget the VICTIMS, and our most highly respected and members of Law Enforcement, Judges, civil rights organizations, Attorneys, and ordinary citizens who suffered because of criminals who need to be behind bars.

All Civil and Human Rights Organizations agree. That if they (Inmates), do the crime then they must certainly do the time, and pay their debt to society. Again, we must remember that it is mostly the "INNOCENT" who suffers the most when criminal acts are committed.

SO, to all families who have been victims of crime, or lost a love one to crime.  We send our condolences, well wishes and prayers out to you and your love ones.   bless, and keep you forever under the shadow of his wings. I trust, and believe fully, that Galatians 6:7 is sometimes the only hope, a loving people have for their fellow human beings, on this planet. Peace!

COMMENT FROM READER: Thank you George. One of the saddest thing in the world is oppression, it’s a lousy feeling that will make you hate the world and people. Blacks and Muslims are regarded inferior to whites, it’s a shame!. Muslim Black Man Jamal Abu Mumia was jailed for a crime he did not commit. President Obama should free innocent detainees like Jamal Abu Numia and liberate the Iraqi Journalist Muntazar Alzaidy,the famous Journalist who hit Bush with his pair of shoes in protest against US incursion, violation and occupation of Iraq.
