Prison Board Releases Brain-Dead InmateTopics: National News
An inmate who was left brain-dead after being shot by a prison guard last month was freed from custody Monday with an unusual decision of a state prison board.
Daniel Provencio, 28, remains in Bakersfield's Mercy Hospital, hooked to a ventilator and intravenous tubes. But he no longer is shackled to the bed, nor guarded around the clock at a cost of $1,056 a day, as he had been since he was shot in the head with a supposedly non-lethal foam projectile during a prison altercation Jan. 16.
"He's the family's responsibility now, which is what they wanted," Bach said.
Why isn't Terri Schiavo her families responsibility to love and care for now? Terri, according to most physicians who have examined her, has a chance of some rehabilitation?
