But she is nowhere close to the Clark County Detention Center where the inmates are suffering inhumane treatments daily and no one does anything about that.
Las Vegas Tribune has learned that for some time the inmates in Clark County Detention Center have been without heaters and hot water in order to take showers.
“Many of us got sick for taking cold showers,” one inmate told the Las Vegas Tribune; he and others are speaking under condition of anonymity and fear for their life for the obvious reasons of reprisals from the guards.
A few weeks ago the Las Vegas Tribune reported that inmates were denied any religious material and were told that representatives of different religious organizations were prohibited from coming back to the detention center to offer spiritual support to those in need of consolation.

“Close to a hundred percent of people at Guantanamo didn’t do anything that would be harmful to the United States,” Sheehan added; however, we have no knowledge of Sheehan protesting for the treatment of the inmates at the Clark County Detention Center who suffer at the hands of a select group of Correction and Intel Officers.
Las Vegas Tribune was told by another inmate that there is a place on one of the floors that has no security cameras with a door that leads to a stairway where the inmates are pushed down, breaking their arm or even their head, and they sometimes lay at the bottom of the stairs dead — but the newspaper has not been able to confirm this report or
heard it from more than two inmates that have survived what is now known as “the stairs to death,” according to our source.
This could be the result of shoddy materials, payoffs, cover-ups and corruption. The source of this information comes directly from correction officers, who have had to work under these conditions and a lot of overtime to move prisoners around this construction.
The jail system can ideally handle about 3,800 inmates; the current number is closer to 4,100, Las Vegas police Deputy Chief Todd Fasulo told Channel 13 News’s Michael Lopardi, the featured reporter of the You Ask. We Investigate program in November 2014.
For a long time now the Detention Center has been using a building located behind the main building that used to be a federal halfway house before they moved into the Industrial Road facility to house their prisoners.
Efforts to speak to someone in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department administration were unsuccessful. After calling the Detention Center, they referred us to the Public Information Office at the Alta and Martin Luther King Metro Building.
