Imagine going to jail or prison and being denied your basic human right to have water. Unbelievable, right? That is exactly what 38-year-old Terrill Thomas experienced at the Milwaukee County Jail after being denied water for seven consecutive days and then dying from dehydration. Each day that went by, Thomas begged the guards for water because the water in his cell was shut off. The confusion stemmed from logging the decision to turn off the inmate’s water. A lot of confusion was tossed around within the jail’s system, and as a result, a life was lost. Regardless of what circumstances you are in, every human being is entitled to their basic rights as individuals.
