Leaving Her to Die

Circle Bear received no medical care from any nurse, doctor, or trained medical personnel while at Roberts County Jail and Brown County Jail. Given her medical history report and behavioral signs, it is clear that Circle Bear required vigilance, compassion, and medical attention. Brown County Jail’s lack of care highlights that Circle Bear’s life was regarded with indifference. They essentially left her to die. She died because the jail failed to act on the signs of methamphetamine overdose.
