Interesting story here: Prisoners Harass Westerfield; Officials Isolate Suspect At Jail
. Quote: "It was explained to him that the cows eat their own cud," one sheriff's official said, and that accused killers of children are considered the cud. "When you have an inmate like that, if that guy gets sentenced to life imprisonment, it could be worse than death," one official said.
If Westerfield did this (and it looks like he did), I can think of few sentences more just.
Even among the criminal population, suspected pedophiles and child-killers are held in contempt and officials frequently separate them from other prisoners to prevent physical attacks. When Westerfield arrived, he was greeted with shouted threats and curses.
He needs to be put in gen pop..
