Last Saturday, audio tapes in the death of 16-year-old Gynnya McMillen were released, and they seem to corroborate excessive uses of force and negligence after the fact from the detention center.
According to the tapes originally released by CBS News, a sheriff’s deputy planning to transported McMillen to court arrived at the Lincoln Village Juvenile Detention Center to pick her up at 9:55 AM on January 11.
When he arrived, he and other workers at the facility realized immediately that she was not breathing, yet waited nine minutes before calling 911.
About 1 ½ minutes later, the emergency dispatcher asked a Lincoln Village nurse if CPR was being performed.
“No it’s not,” the nurse said.
“They want us to start CPR,” she can then be heard saying to someone at the facility.
“Do y’all have a CPR protocol or do y’all need it?” the dispatcher asked about 10 seconds later.
“I’m new, I can find out, I don’t know,” the nurse replied.
