Blog: HIV postive woman languishes in Dallas jail without medical treatment

Red State Feminist relays the story of an HIV-positive woman languishing in the Dallas County jail for more than a year without medical treatment. "Why is it that I am one of the few people that knows about this?," she asks. "Because it’s possible for individuals to languish in jail without anyone knowing about it in Dallas county." She's got that much right.

If accurate in the details, this appears to be a blog scoop; I've not seen the story reported in the MSM. Regular Grits readers know it wouldn't be the first time Dallas has lost prisoners recently.
