I know exactly how Roy felt and probably still feels, something like this situation is hard to get over because you feel so violated by people and systems that are suppost to protect us. I was also lost in the men's central jail system for a week. I was only suppost to be detained which they cannot hold you for more than 24 hrs. I also have the same medical condition as Mr. Roy, although I am not gay . I was never told I was under arrest. I had to be transferred from the e.l.a. sub station to mcj because of my medical condition. When I first arrived I was put in a holding tank with about 30 other individuals when there was about 5 other holding tanks empty. I felt like a sardine. The deputies inside must hate there job so much that they turn into headcases. I understand that I'm not in a hotel but it seemed like every time I was walking down a hall and a deputy walked by he cursed me for no reason at all. For some reason I'm not aware of I was placed in isolation. I was in a filthy room that smelled like urine for 23 hrs everyday, not to mention I didn't even get a shower. It really is inhumane and like a medievil dungeon that l.a. county should be embarassed about. I felt like I was in another country. I can't believe a place like this exists just miles from my home. I was there that whole week for no reason other than I was lost in the system. Something has to be done.
