Innocent people in custody of Denton County Jail are denied, access to an attorney, fresh water, phone calls, and arraignment (ability to bond out) if an arrested person doesn't answer questions.
Upon entering the Denton County Jail, I was asked a serious of questions that felt intrusive. Questions like, whats your highest level of education?, have you been out of the country in the last 3 weeks?, are you pregnant? What medications are you taking? whats you social security number. I exercised my right to remain silent. At this point the female, who claimed to be the supervisor of the jail, told me, I would not get a phone call until I answered all her questions. There was also an older whited haired male with a mustache who looked to be a supervisor as well. he told me the same thing. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I was being blackmailed into answering questions with my freedom as ransom. In the county that is Republican dominated, My right to remain silent was dismissed. They might as well have been burning The American Flag right in front of me. Many of my family members are Veterans. They fought for our Constitution Rights, how dare these public servants violate our rights.
