Inmate who sued over alleged ‘Baby Shark’ torture found dead in Oklahoma prison cell at 4am
Last year, John Basco joined three inmates in filing a civil rights lawsuit over the alleged use of ‘Baby Shark’ – among other heinous acts – as a torture tactic. Today, he was found dead in his Oklahoma prison cell in the early hours of the morning.
Basco and his fellow plaintiffs said the guards played ‘Baby Shark’ for hours on end
He was booked into the Oklahoma City County Jail on Thursday on a “drug trafficking complaint.” A cause of death has yet to be released – and coroners say there are no apparent signs of foul play – but I and anyone else with a brain know they killed this guy.
You can’t convince me otherwise, so don’t even bother trying. Basco’s attorney Cameron Spradling said the same in a statement today.
“I’m really bothered by this,” Spradling said. “One of the ‘Baby Shark’ victims is conveniently dead within three days of his arrival at the jail. How does that happen? District Attorney David Prater just lost one of his witnesses for the upcoming criminal trial. For me, this one does not pass the smell test.”
I mean, yeah. That’s pretty spot on right there if you ask me.
If any group of people is vindictive to the point of homicide, having their own attacked, it’s cops, prison guards, and folks of that nature. You may expect a joke about Oklahoma being racist or something like that, but I’d be more worried about Boston than Oklahoma City if we’re keeping it a bean.
Regardless, this is EXTREMELY fishy (no pun intended). I need those backwater dopes cosplaying as CIA interrogators at Guantanamo Bay locked up like I need water.
