A 74-year-old inmate at the Federal Medical Center prison in Fort Worth died on Friday from COVID-19, federal officials said. 

Officials with the Bureau of Prisons said Charles Hanberry had previously had long-term, pre-existing underlying conditions that made him more vulnerable to the disease.

Hanberry was seen by medical staff at the prison on April 21 for “low oxygen saturation, shortness of breath, and other symptoms” and then tested positive for the novel coronavirus. He was taken to a local hospital on April 22 for further treatment where he was placed on a ventilator on May 5 after his condition declined, officials said.

He died ten days later.  

Hanberry was serving a 12-year sentence. He had been in custody at FMC Fort Worth since December 2012. 

At least seven other people have died from the disease while in custody at that prison, according to federal officials. The facility currently has the second-highest number of active cases reported at a federal prison in the U.S. at 304 active cases. That’s in addition to the 331 recoveries reported so far among the facility’s 1,455 inmates.

Six staff members have also tested positive, officials said.

Jacob Black was unarmed. I don’t care what Jacob Blake did or didn’t do, I don’t care. He’s unarmed, and that police officer shoots him in the back at least seven times in front of his three young children who were in the car. That cop should go to prison, but I doubt he will.

And yet, there are a lot of you who are only mad because the NBA won’t play their games for your entertainment Wednesday night.
