Records: Thousands Too Injured to Enter Baltimore Jail

Sunday, 10 May 2015 04:58 PM

Newly released records show that thousands of people have been brought to the Baltimore city jail in recent years with injuries too severe for them to be admitted.

The Baltimore Sun obtained records showing that correctional officers at the jail refused to admit nearly 2,600 detainees who were in police custody between June 2012 and April 2015.

Baltimore police are under scrutiny for their treatment of detainees following the death of Freddie Gray last month. Six officers have been charged in Gray's death, which sparked riots and widespread protests. The Justice Department is conducting a civil-rights investigation of Baltimore police.

The records obtained by The Sun show that 123 of the detainees who weren't admitted to jail had visible head injuries. Others had broken bones or facial trauma.
