2nd Ex-Illinois Prison Guard Convicted In Inmate Beating Death

“The defense made a statement about the long, cruel arm of government,” assistant U.S. Attorney Eugene Miller said in his closing statement. “Todd Sheffler violated his training, violated the U.S. Constitution and allowed, participated in and covered up the brutal beating of a 65-year-old man, defenseless, a fellow citizen, handcuffed behind his back and lying on the cold, hard concrete floor. He was the long, cruel arm of government.”

Another reason we need Corrective Clemency & to quote Alan Mills: “Also a reason why we need outside monitoring and investigation of all uses of force by Illinois prison guards!”
