- A fight between inmates at a maximum-security division of the Cook County Jail sent seven possible gang members to area hospitals Saturday night. Just before 7 p.m., a fight broke out between a group of inmates in the 9th division of the Cook County Jail, one of the three maximum-security divisions in the jail, Cook County Sheriff's Office spokesman Bill Cunningham said. The fight was believed to be gang-related.
At least two inmates are in critical condition. One would assume no great loss. Until you add up the amount of tax money being drained to pay for medical treatment along with the housing and food provided during their court sanctioned stay in our 5-star County Jail.
