Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Severe staffing shortages at the Milwaukee County Jail cause dangerous conditions for residents and low morale for staff.
David Aumann, 66, said he spent nearly 40 hours in central booking after his electronic monitoring bracelet ran out of battery in May.
He said he was packed in a "bullpen" room with roughly 70 other individuals — mostly without masks — awaiting placement in the jail. While some people tried sleeping on the floor, he tried cat-napping while leaning against the wall.
"They're overbooked at that place," he told the Journal Sentinel. "There are no places to get any sleep. It's filthy."
