16 year old Nicholas Contreraz of Sacramento, California died March 2, 1998 at Arizona Boys Ranch, a youth incarceration facility in Pinal County, Arizona. He died of a lung condition after being placed in a control hold and forced to do punitive exercises. He had been denied medical attention and staff accused him of faking illness. A nurse who saw Nicholas during the last three weeks of his life failed to diagnose his illness; in February he was forced to sleep on a bare bathroom floor with an open window and a single blanket. He was unable to control his bowels and staff members forced him to carry a bucket of his own waste and stick his head in it, carry it around, do exercise with it, and at one point do push ups with his head over it. An autopsy revealed Nicholas died of an infection that partially collapsed one lung and left 2 1/2 quarts of pus in his chest. Following this incident California authorities withdrew their juvenile prisoners from the Arizona Boys Ranch. However, this type of situation continues; the week I gave Michi some information about the Contreraz death, the San Francisco Chronicle reported 15 year-old William Lee died September 18, 2000 after being restrained by a counselor at the Obsidian Trails Outdoor School in Lakeview Oregon.
