Family: Suicide Was Result Of Baltimore Police Shooting

BALTIMORE (AP) — The family of a man who was shot by a Baltimore police officer in February says the Police Department treated him so poorly while he was recovering in the hospital that he killed himself instead of returning for more treatment.

The Baltimore Sun reports that the family of Jeffrey Blair filed a lawsuit Monday in Baltimore Circuit Court, saying police ignored his attorneys and refused to let his wife and mother visit.

The 35-year-old Blair was shot and hit with a Taser multiple times after a Feb. 22 traffic stop in which police say Blair exited his car and ran towards an officer.

Maryland guidelines state no Hospital visits for incarcerated Individuals. That would be a security violation. They are only allowed visits in the Institution during visiting hours, Special visits for Attorneys with prior approval. They just want Maryland to pay them money. This is a precedent set by Baltimore Politians that needs to be stopped immediately.
