NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – A police officer said jail workers locked him in a room, in jail, with the man he just arrested to get back at him. He never committed a crime and claimed this happened because of his argument with corrections officers about how to handle the inmate.
“They can do the job the taxpayers pay them to do and medically clear prisoners. They can take an arrestee to the hospital themselves,” —Attorney Laura Schauer Ives
