WATCH: Three Bridgewater Guards to Stand Trial 8 Years After Patient’s Death

A screen grab from video shot during Joshua K. Messier’s encounter with guards at Bridgewater State Hospital.

Eight years after the tragic death of a 23-year-old patient with schizophrenia at Bridgewater State Hospital, three prison guards are slated to stand trial Tuesday on charges they killed Joshua K. Messier while forcefully strapping him to a bed in a brutal scene captured on prison video.

The trial, scheduled to unfold in Plymouth Superior Court, once seemed highly unlikely even though the medical examiner ruled that the guards caused Messier’s death. Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz in 2010 determined there was insufficient evidence to pursue criminal charges, and none of the guards was charged or even disciplined.

But four years later, after The Boston Globe reported on the guards’ rough treatment of Messier on the night he died, Attorney General Martha Coakley appointed a special prosecutor to investigate.

[WATCH] Man Arrested for “Sagging Pants” Dies in Jail Cell After Several Guards Pile on Top of Him


Louisiana police first confronted Ervin Edwards because they were responding to a call that he had been arguing with his girlfriend at a gas station.

But the argument was over by the time they had arrived.

So Port Allen police began hassling him about his sagging pants, which is illegal in that city thanks to a clearly unconstitutional 2007 city ordinance.

But when they moved in to arrest him, he pulled away, thinking the Constitution applied to him.

“Why am I going to jail? I didn’t do anything,” he asked.

Not only did he end up in jail, he ended up dead. Lying facedown on a cold cell floor after several guards piled on top of him in that typical smothering “safety restraint” style that leaves so many people suffocated.

The West Baton Rouge Jail guards then left the 38-year-old man laying on his stomach in his underwear, his pants strewn outside the cell, for it was never about the pants, but about the power.

Then more than ten minutes went by before they entered the cell and pretended to care about his life with one guard kicking at his feet as it to tell him to snap out of the beating.

It was November 26, 2013 and an autopsy later classified as “undetermined,” a result of “acute cocaine and phencyclidine (PCP) intoxication in association with restraint by law enforcement” – a common diagnostic for similar deaths around the country, allowing law enforcement officers to not accept liability for needlessly taking somebody’s life.

Edwards’ family has filed a lawsuit and the U.S. Department of Justice may now be investigating. Or may be not, depending on whom you believe.

Heavily-armed guards greet activists at Capitol steps during Texas rally Saturday

AUSTIN, Tex. (INTELLIHUB) — After climbing the steps and approaching the Capitol building doors while covering the “Austin 1776 Freedom March” on Saturday, I found myself just feet away from heavily-armed guards, Capitol Police, who had just emerged from inside the building.

One of them gave me an extremely serious ‘don’t mess with me look’ and told me that I absolutely could not film the officer that was holding an AR-15 assault rifle.

Eerie. Wouldn’t you say?

Share this with everybody. What were they thinking?

Georgia prison break: Two inmates on the run after killing guards with their own guns and escaping

Two Georgia inmates are on the loose after killing two prison guards during a prisoner transport southeast of Atlanta.

A witness said the two fled from their bus transportation in a dark green Honda, and law enforcement officials are urging civilians not to approach either convict if they’re spotted. They were able to kill the officers after overpowering them, and taking their firearms.

The fugitives reportedly fled the scene with the .40-caliber Glock pistols they used to kill the officers.

Both men were serving time for armed robberies and other crimes. One of the men, 43-year-old Donnie Russell Rowe, had been in prison since 2002. The other, 24-year-old Ricky Dubose, had been serving time since 2015.

“I can confirm that we are currently looking for two white males in a dark green Honda Civic that have escaped and they are armed,” a spokesperson for the Putnam County Sheriff Department said.

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said that federal resources were being provided to help track down the fugitives.

“An attack on any American law enforcement officer is an attack on every American law enforcement officer, and the principles we believe in,” Mr Rosenstein said before entering a Senate budget hearing.

The correctional officers were identified as Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue, both of whom worked at Baldwin State Prison. Mr Monica had been with the department since 2009, and Mr Billue began working there in 2007

A press release from the Georgia Department of Corrections says that both men are 6’1”. It also notes that the Georgia prison system is one of the largest in the United States, with nearly 52,000 state prisoners, and 10,500 employees.

A database of prisoners in Georgia shows that Dubose’s maximum possible release date lands in 2034. Rowe was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
