So sad, but true.

Francisco Castaneda died while being held in a deportation facility, after telling officials that his penis was killing him.. literally.  During his time in North Kern Prison in Delano, California, Castaneda made the claim to officers and his doctors that he needed immediate attention.  Mulitple times his doctors recommended that he get a biopsy of the growth, but the Chief Physician of two different locations in California both rejected the claims from their Doctors on staff.  Finally, when he officially got approval for a biopsy, he was released soon after without any treatment.  Within the next few days, Castaneda would undergo great pain, including the amputation of his penis, before dying like some sort of government trash dumped into the Gulf.

His family sued the shit out of the state, claiming that he died while on their hands, and that this could have been prevented had he the attention he deserved as a human being in the most prestigious fucking country in the world.. the US of A.

Luckily, his daughter will be getting $1.5 million of that money – and this case is now going against the Federal Government in April of next year.

    His death could have been prevented and the daughter would still have a father to this day. Even though the daughter is awarded millions for the death of her father, no amount of money could replace that kind of senseless loss. My heart goes out to his family who is feeling the great loss.
