Default Florida inmate says beating by guards left her paralyzed

Florida inmate says beating by guards left her paralyzed

by MIKE SCHNEIDER,Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A female inmate at a Florida prison is suing the state corrections agency, saying she was left paralyzed after being beaten by four guards.

Cheryl Weimar and her husband, Karl, said in their lawsuit that her civil rights were violated when she was nearly beaten to death by guards last month at the Lowell Correctional Institution in Ocala, Florida.

Weimar was left with a broken neck and is now a paraplegic because of the guards' use of force, according to the lawsuit.

For the rest of the story please see the story by the Associated Press
"One of the casualties of [prison life] is the numbness of the heart"- Man on Fire

There is no question that in virtually all circumstances in which people are doing things in order to get rewards, extrinsic tangible rewards undermine intrinsic motivation." the New Scientist (12th April 2011, pp 40-43)

" Every life you touch, every fear or pain you ease, every loved ones' heart that you ease the burden from is the reason you are here."
