Company convicted of falsifying records in Milwaukee Co.


every time someone has a *** bad result like this and I mean it’s *** a very rare case, but I can’t rule that out. I mean, it hurts me as a human being *** when I see someone in pain. When I see someone’s families suffer. I understand. This family has been through a horrible ordeal. I don’t wish that on anyone. So from my heart to theirs, what more can I say? I mean, saying I’m sorry, is that enough? I don’t know if my heart bleeds for these people. I am a human being ***. I have family members. If that turns out to be exactly the way things were written, that’s awful. So my heart goes out to the family. I only wish them comfort and from their friends, families. I hope they get the help they need from potentially the faith community of others who might be able to help them. So it’s my heart, it’s for some reason, when we get into these law enforcement situations like, okay, somebody’s dead. It’s something serious. I don’t care as a fucking sheriff. The big thing I want, I want people to get courtesy from my point of view. Civility, compassion, benevolent law enforcement must serve and protect, not just protect, not just arrest, not just throw people in jail, but we must also care for people. I am again sworn, these are inmates awaiting trial who have sworn to deal with. So to the family. Yes, I have nothing but my deepest condolences for their loss, and it’s heartbreaking.

As a result of these failures, criminal charges were brought against several former employees of the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office. These employees were ultimately convicted for their actions.

Based on the nature and seriousness of the violations, including the risk of harm to members of the Milwaukee County community, the pervasiveness of wrongdoing within the company, and a history of similar misconduct by ‘Armor Correctional, including prior civil and regulatory actions against Armor, it was appropriate and necessary to hold the company itself accountable.’ ‘Armor Correctional was contracted by Milwaukee County to provide medical care to these members of the community.
