My father was arrested in Aug 2006. We were never given any information to where he was until my mother went to the men's jail a week later. There, they told her he was at USC county hospital in ICU and that she'd better go see him immediately. Once she got there, the doctors told her he had been there, in a coma, for a week. We asked why we weren't notified right away. They said they asked the officers for a next of kin and were repeatedly told he had none, even though the FBI were involved and had been to our home the same day of his arrest. When we asked what happend, a nurse told us some details but made it clear to us that they "took pictures" when he was brought in. Unfortunately, he never woke up and we let him go a month later. Do we still have a case? Civil case?
