    2/1/10 INMATE SAVES JAMIE SCOTT'S LIFE (Scott Sisters) By Sis Marpessa

    Jamie Scott called home last night to the relief of her mother and family!

    Following dialysis treatment at the prison last week Jamie was locked
    in a cell and was not checked on at all by anyone for a very long while.
    When an inmate stopped by Jamie's cell to speak to her, the inmate
    was alarmed that she was not moving and was completely unresponsive.
    It was because of this inmate yelling out for help that Jamie was found
    to be in shock and rushed by ambulance to the Central Mississippi
    Medical Facility, where she had been a patient during the entire time
    the prison refused to give her mother or legal supporters any
    information at all.

    If not for this inmate's intervention Jamie may not have survived. Her
    heart rate and blood pressure were way off, as well as her magnesium
    levels. Her treatment had not been carried out properly and the doctor
    had to send back written instructions on how to care for her. The
    doctor alerted Jamie that there was a problem with the insertion of the
    temporary catheter in her neck and that it's placement could lead to
    infection, stating that the doctor who placed it needed to be contacted.
    As of last night Jamie was in the prison infirmary.

    We are more concerned than ever about Jamie's medical care and are
    still pushing for mainstream media coverage to shine a bright light on
    her steady, perilous decline due to CUT-RATE medical care with the
    prison's rule of thumb being whatever is quickest, cheapest (whether
    or not it's actually the right treatment) or nothing at all!

    Although Mrs. Rasco has a legal advisor, Atty Jaribu Hill, she is still in
    dire need of a criminal attorney. There are many issues that need to be
    addressed and we are actively seeking any information that would help
    her obtain a lawyer. We are extremely fortunate to have a fantastic and
    heavily experienced paralegal recently volunteer to work with us and who
    would be of great assistance to any attorney that would help to right the
    very egregious wrongs the Scott Sisters have suffered these many years.

    Jamie Scott nor her sister should even be locked down in that prison
    in the first place, this case is galling beyond belief and calls into question
    every platitude this nation applies to itself when falsely lauding itself as a
    human rights champion! Please continue to make as many contacts as
    possible on the Scott Sisters' behalf, we are interested in all of your ideas
    and creativity to get this story out there!

    Thank you for sharing this! I had never heard of this case.

    However, I am glad to hear that she's getting some medical attention now.

    And after I read about them, my heart is heavy.

    I believe in accountability; but, yes, the punishment should fit the crime...IF there was any crime committed.
