Well this is how I see it there is no way that could of been foul play. that jail and those gaurds are so shady that jail is so overcrowed of there and the gaurds will tell you that, but to keep your mouths shut. they are so shady alls its about is getting there money over there when you have to sleep in the day room on the cold floors you or in the gym, thats pretty bad I think someone should really start looking into whats going on over there and get there heads out of there ass. that might have alot to due with the kids death not only that, those guards mistreat you especially certain ones. how could you suficate yourself come on now get real!

The family should really look into this. I understand that this young man was being housed in an isolation cell. Most isolation cells are equipped with constant video surveillance capability. If I were a member of the family, I'd immmediately retain an attorney and subpeona the surveillance tapes, if they haven't already been destroyed. I have no doubt that the books have already been cooked, but video doesn't lie. Where were the guards and how long was this young man left unchecked?

Very sad for this young man's family. However, some of you are making some pretty strong accusations--that are bordering on libel (printed here publicly) and slander. How do you feel about the guards in question pressing charges and the state police subpoenaing the IP addresses of the posters here as well?....and to Anonymous at 8:50, let me break out the crying towel for you...commit & get convicted of a crime and you don't get a cushy room with lots of priviliges, I feel SOOOOO bad. Maybe next time these poor mistreated inmates think twice about doing something stupid enough to land them there in the first place. Give me a break!

Asphyxiation does not necessarily mean he sufficated himself in the literal sense. Death by aspyhxiation can come in a number of different ways. Ask a doctor, a nurse, or the coroner & try thinking or checking the facts before you spout off.

They deserve to have ALL of the information.

As for this:

"How do you feel about the guards in question pressing charges and the state police subpoenaing the IP addresses of the posters here as well?"

What a commie bastard you are. I didn't post that, but I say BRING IT ON you Socialist Pig!

And you 9:51, are a hypocrite.

How dare you criticize someone for exercising their right to free speech as YOU flame THEM, and then go on to categorize everyone in jail as "crooks" who deserve whatever they get.

Mr. Wizzik said...

You know 10:14, lets go ahead and talk about asphyxiation...because lack of oxygen to the lungs is rarely the cause of death in a suicide.

Homicide however, well that is a different story.

Most people when committing suicide of this nature die from lack of oxygen to the BRAIN, because arterial compression (or veinous..probably spelled wrong)prevent the blood from carrying oxygen to the BRAIN.

That is not asphyxiation.

For this to be an open and shut "Suicide Due To Asphyxiation", with no questions asked...well that's BS.

the jail can treat you bad if you are bad in there... like that haggy guy that killed that girl in bradford.. he was creating a problem in the jail so the gaurds took care of him by restraining him.. if you are nice to everyone and do what you are suppost to then they are nice too.. if it wasnt for one of the gaurds i probably would have lost a family member..and now that family member seeks help with the counsilor every week for help with his problems so before anyone says bad things about the jail and the workers in there... think twice.... it is a shame hearst killed himself and its a shame what he did that put him in there.. no one knows why hearst did what he did.. its sad it really is sad how people react to everything in these blogs or in life in general..everyone just has to complain about something i guess which is also sad.. no wonder why the world is the way it is. he was so young.. some of you seem to think that the jail had something to do with his death..i know some of the guards in there and i dont think so.. its deeper than that. if you need help only you can get yourself help. maybe he didnt want the help or felt he didnt have a problem.. who knows.. i believe no one has the right to take anyones life. even if it is a death sentence.. only god has the right to decide when it is your time..my blessings go out to everyone that is hurt by this.. and i hope hearst asked for forgiveness and mercy on his soul..

I don't know about you, but Anonymous @ 9:51 certainly sounds like a guard to me...... By the way, libel and slander are only pertinent if individual's names are specifically being utilized and I don't see any of that here. It's funny how people can be so condemning of the less fortunate, particularly when discussing the criminal element. That all tends to change when a friend or relative has an unfortunate run-in with the legal system.....and it happens.

for all of you think he was assisted? that is bs.. this guy hung himself. i KNOW. if you think the jail or other inmates assisted with his death dont you think. they would have done it to a chester or a murderer instead of someone who beat up some kid and was intoxicated.. come on now.. i know if i was in there.. the chesters and murderers would get it before hearst.. only hearst did this to himself not anyone else. there is nothing fishy about this.. the guy prolly thought it was the end for him maybe he was depressed and thought that was the only way out.. NO ONE WILL EVER REALLY KNOW>> so back off.. if you are not in there or a family member of his ITS NOT YOUR PROBLEM

Anonymous said...

ITS NOT YOUR PROBLEM But the people who know, love, and care for his family now have the problem in trying to comfort each other while asking why. You are all entitled to your opinions, just remember sometimes your words hurt rather than comfort.....

Only commen sence here. how could you sufficate yourself. get real everyone and anyone who has a brain know there is more to this than what saying. yes there are a few comments in here by the guards you can tell cause there defending themselves.

I can hardly believe the illiteracy of some of the people on this blog.

After seeing the sheriff manhandle the 86 year old, then blame it on him, I think they're capable of ANYTHING over there at the jail. Remember the good old days when the guys in charge there knew what they were doing and there weren't these controversies and scandals?
Hey commissioners, I hope you can sleep well at night knowing that this probably could have been prevented if you had PROFESSIONALS running your corrections department, instead of a bunch of doufusses who got hired because they were cops or janitors or something before.
Subpeona that, tough guy!

A circulating "word on the street" is that Mr. Hearst was under medical care for depression and was prescribed an anti-depressant due to "suicidal tendencies". He was in an isolation cell under suicide watch, yet managed to take his own life. Just the "word on the street", but very disturbing if true.

Anonymous said...

it doesnt matter depressed or not.. the gaurds should have done thier job correctly and did the rounds when they should have. maybe he would still be alive today

Anonymous said...

Wow... A young kid dies... and you guys fight

Anonymous said...

first of all.. for all of you out there saying that it's rediculous that a guard or other inmate assisted him in committing suicide? who even mentioned that.. all that was said was that it's believed there was fould play.. if he was under suicide watch in an isolated cell, how is there a 4 hour gap in his time of death? that means that for 4 hours he was not checked on, and the guards didn't do their job. and to the post on dec. 10, at 11:18... how do you KNOW he hung himself? were you in the room, did you watch? and the ignorant people who say it's his fault for being in jail and what not, you are right. he messed up and it IS his fault... it's also his fault he is no longer with us.. however, that does not mean that his family should suffer... he chose to do what he did, but if the guards were routinely checking on him like they were supposed to, there wouldn't be a 4 hour gap in the time of dealth and maybe he would still be here. ALSO, before ya'll talk shit, think about his family.. don't you think his 20 year old wife and his 3 young children have a right to know EXACTLY what happened? let them do their thing, if it comes back that there was no foul play and that everyone did there job, then ok. but if not, people will only get away with what you let them. if you don't ask questions, then you will never know.

okay wow. i'm pretty sure that rob could have been saved. this could have all been prevented. of course i would know this. but seriously what i would really like to know HOW DO YOU KILL YOURSELF IN JAIL! in an isolation cell. He had three kids that needed him. One of them which was just born to his girlfriend. Don't you think that he would've had something to live for? Well none of you really know what happened. YOu can't really blame anyone. No one knows what really happened but Rob and the guards that were there. But i do think that if you are in jail and in isolation wouldn't you think it would be impossible to kill yourself? Someone wasn't doing their job right. that's what it comes down to.
