Just how, exactly, did the inmates charged with killing Chamberlain come to believe that he was a "chester," jailhouse slang for child molester, and thus warranted a brutal beating?_____________________
There is the answer to the true culpable party in this individual's death. No one likes a child molestor, but that's not the point. This is America, and these these badged thugs need to be held accountable. There is a thin line between the deputies and the inmates they are responsible for. The deputies in charge that evening should be sent away for life, or better yet be sent to Death Row. They should be above the riff-raff that inhabit the jails they supervise. We expect this behavior from inmates, but these deputies literally have the responsibility of the inmates lives. Abusing or neglecting responsibility like this should reap harsh penalties. There should be zero mercy for these badged thugs, since they show zero mercy to those they are responsible for.
