This video shows a young soldier Sgt. James Brown, 26, begging for his life as jail attendees correct his behavior violently.   Sgt Brown was an active duty GI stationed at Fort Bliss, TX. 

He was ordered to spend two days in jail after being charged with a DWI and reported to jail to carry out his sentence.    He successfully completed two tours of duty in Iraq, in both cases seeing direct combat.   The young soldier survived Iraq but could not find the fortitude to survive two nights in a Texas jail. 

For me this shows evidence the criminal justice system needs to be ripped apart from the hinges and reconstructed. 

He was then given two shots of lorazepam, here is a paragraph I took from a manufacturer’s website. ‘A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.’

According to reports before death, Brown bled from his ears and eyes while chocking on blood.   Authorities said Brown died of a pre-existing medical condition - but here is the confusion, he was an active duty soldier who at the very least could physically complete 42 push-ups and 53 sit-ups and could manage the 2-mile run in under 15:54 seconds.  He survived two tours of duty where he was active in a forward unit, being under enemy fire in both instances. 

Watch the video and tell me what you think. Should we concern ourselves about ISIS when this is happening stateside?
