NC inmate’s autopsy was limited by unusual state restrictions – News & Observer

The Political Agitator response: Damn I know this can’t be real!

All autopsies are important, but the autopsy of Michael Anthony Kerr was especially so.

Kerr, a 53-year-old inmate at Alexander Correctional Institution in Taylorsville, died of dehydration in March after spending five days handcuffed in solitary confinement, lying in his feces and urine.

But before prison officials at the Department of Public Safety would share its records, they required the state medical examiner to sign a form specially drafted by lawyers for the prison system. The form said the medical examiner could look at prison records but not keep copies.

“I’ve never seen anything like this in all my career, and I’ve been doing this for 28 years,” said Dr. Greg Davis, a University of Kentucky pathologist who worked as a medical examiner at Wake Forest Medical School for five years. (Source: Read more)

History will be much kinder to him than the present. The "fog of war" won’t allow many to see all that has been done these past 6 years by Lionel Kato

Today as I celebrate my birthday and the Christmas Holiday, I can not be truly happy when folks around me are not happy. However I know that it is very little that I can do about other folks happiness especially when I go through my trials and tribulations but keep a smile on my face because I dare to allow anything to steal my joy!

But on this day I wish my President and his family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year because they have been treated so bad by Ignant Racist White Folks and Ignant Safe Negroes since dating back to the day he won the election not the day he moved into the White House.

It is so sad that when a black man or woman do some good things and ungrateful Negroes are ignant to the facts. However I want to thank my friend Lionel Kato who posted on Facebook the following as it relates to our President, “History will be much kinder to him than the present. The “fog of war” won’t allow many to see all that has been done these past 6 years” Lionel Kato.

I challenge everyone to be kind to our President and his family as he continues to do the best that he can for the next 2 years. You don’t have to always agree with him but damn respect the man and his family.
