This is a very tragic story, so much went wrong. A former DL employee, a native of India, died of a hunger strike in jail. Initially she ignored a summons for jury duty, but as a non citizen she isn't eligible for jury duty in the first place. She then resisted arrest when a deputy showed up at her door (judge sent the deputy to get her to explain her absence). The jury duty case was dropped but the resisting arrest charges lingered. She didn't show up for two more court appearances, so the judge ordered her arrest. On Dec. 14 she was put in the Lake County (suburban Chicago) jail, and she went on a hunger strike. Her attorney noticed her mental instability a few days into her incarceration, but jail staff did not notify the attorney about the hunger strike until day 13; next day she was transfered to a medical facility, where she died five days later. Afterwards, a search of her home turned of stacks of unopened mail, some 7 years old. She started as a Pan Am flight attendant in 1986, then when DL took over she became an in-flight training supervisor and in 1999 was nominated for the Chairman's Club award and in 2004, she moved to Atlanta to work at Delta headquarters. She was laid off 5 years ago and moved to Chicago; friends said she had began to show signs of mental instability. So unnecessary, this whole thing is a very sad mess.
