    Omg poor baby. Yes they've been abusing the disabled people they mistreat them so much. It's the saddest thing in the entire world to go to the infirmary in harris county jail.

    Way to go lawyer!!! He's breaking it down for the ppl. He has a case, u have to classify ppl correctly and not leave vulnerable ppl in with violent aggressive convicted offenders. Harris County has the money. As having worked in the cj system I know depts will not proactively spend money unless they have to or until made to. Hire more ppl, give the workers a raise and implement better safety measures. It's not that hard

    Where were the other inmates? Why did the other inmates just allow this to happen? You cannot just put this off on the detention officers. I am praying for this young man and I pray that he pulls through.

    I can’t believe they would be stupid enough to put him in with a psycho! The woman who had been taking care of him earlier this year said he’d been living on the streets since May. we need more help for disabled!

    Fred was ARRESTED FOR AGGRAVATED ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON… do you feel for the victim he assaulted? He shouldn’t have attacked someone, this he wouldn’t have been arrested & thrown in jail, PERIOD.

    This scream racial discrimination. White prisoner attacking a black vulnerable inmate who was special needs who didn’t deserve to be in jail

    Defund the Houston police already! Everyday there's some messed up case that comes out whether it's them racial profiling, mistreating and killing the vulnerable residents, failing to investigate the smell of a child's corpse, one of your own being arrested for sexual assault on a minor and giving him paid leave. It's obvious y'all need to be investigated, retrained, and/or replaced by professionals educated to handle your special needs residents. You can't even handle the basic aspect of your job to serve and PROTECT. Not saying you do not have a difficult job, because you do. So why not get help?
    As a mom to a young son, my heart goes out to these and all parents of black sons, especially those with special needs. They are treated like criminals before they open their mouths. The constant worry the parents have to just let their child step out of their home and in some cases in the home. Black Lives Matter, people!

    This is something that should anger every law-abiding adult in the community. I have personally organized, and been involved in protests many times against the ineptness of the police. Sheriff Ed Gonzalez has done his job impeccably well, numerous times when dangerous criminals needed to be brought to heel. This young man was NOT one of those types of individuals. He needed to be protected from those individuals- he was not just an ordinary inmate in the jail. It is my hope Sheriff Gonzalez does a thorough investigation of this matter, as it doesn't really matter how understaffed the jail is. Precautions should have been taken for this very vulnerable young man, that obviously was not. If there is a responsibility on the dept's head, I hope those involved are dealt with.

    I am so sorry for this mother and her family. I have a special need son too. How could this happen shame on all those involve they will be judge if not on this earth there is a Higher Power. They hearts was cold and black and these type of people do not need to work with any human being or animals

  22. Gacha Sis says:

    Why did the mother put her disabled son in a group home!!! She was his protector! Those group homes are just as bad a prison!

  23. Le F says:

    It is sad that problems we've dealt with years ago we are dealing with today! Talking about doing something is doing nothing!

  24. Pat Andersen says:

    R.I.P. innocent Angel, it's a shame how incompetent cold and, uncaring the police and the system is, they DID NOT provide the special care and protection this young man deserved The money will not bring that womans' child back no matter how much they will pay her. My condolences to the family.

    Because of his special needs alone he should of never been in jail. My heart goes out to his mom and family. The laws are very very flawed when it comes to people with special needs. Once their adults the law pretends all of their disabilities go away. They ignore what their family members say. They just want a body in jail to feed this corrupt system. How many companies benefit from people going to jail? You'd be surprised. The mom was lucky the police even talked to her. But as you can see what ever she said went in one ear and out the other. This mother is going to have nightmares about her son and all he went threw. I pray she makes it threw this.
