The investigation will focus on what ..., 24 May 2013 [cached]
The investigation will focus on what the staff knew and reasonably could have done to prevent Stewart's death, said Gary DeLand of the Utah Sheriff's Association, who had previously been commander of the Salt Lake County Jail and head of the Utah Department of Corrections. He's also been an expert witness or litigation consultant in more than 200 inmate death cases nationwide.
"Suicide is a tough case to prevent," DeLand said. "It can happen without us having knowledge it's about to happen. You can't stop what you don't anticipate."
An inmate has the advantage over jail staff about when and how to follow through with suicide, and only has to be successful once, whereas staff have to be successful at prevention every time, DeLand said.

The modest banquet was well earned, say O. Lane McCotter and Gary DeLand, friends from Utah and former business associates who were living what they describe today as a dream adventure, complete with body armor, M16s and suitcases stuffed with $100 bills.
And Abu Ghraib, Iraq's most secure maximum-security prison, was to be DeLand and McCotter's crowning achievement.
Instead, the torture of Iraqi prisoners there at the hands of the U.S. military has shocked the world, disrupted the overall mission in Iraq and launched congressional inquiries not only into who may have ordered the mistreatment, but who picked McCotter and DeLand -- contractors with questionable records on prisoner civil rights -- to rebuild Iraq's correctional system.
While at Leavenworth in the 1980s, DeLand says McCotter, 63, worked with Colin Powell, then a deputy commander at the Kansas Army base, now President Bush's Secretary of State.
"McCotter's a legend," says DeLand, another former Corrections director in Utah recruited by ICITAP."He cleaned [Leavenworth] up after Vietnam -- when it was a mess."
But critics of how McCotter and DeLand handled prisoners in Utah -- where both men advocated the use of total restraint chairs and boards to immobilize scores of dangerous or mentally ill inmates -- say the pictures of abuse and humiliation at Abu Ghraib are eerily similar to video and written records that detail the plight of bound and naked Utah prisoners in the former isolation chamber at Utah's Point of the Mountain prison.
asks Carol Gnade, a former director of the American Civil Liberties Union in Utah who battled McCotter and DeLand over inmate abuses.
Teaching rights: While there is no evidence McCotter and DeLand trained the military police force implicated in the abuse at Abu Ghraib, the two did collaborate on establishing a "corrections academy" in Iraq to teach Iraqis how to manage prison inmates.The three-week academy included coursework on fair treatment under civilian law, DeLand says, as well as detention standards for prisoners of war established under the Geneva Conventions.
DeLand also reviewed a military correctional training manual, which he says provided little or no direction on the humane treatment of prisoners."I found about 5 percent of it useful."That manual, DeLand says, was used by the U.S. Army to train MPs to run the dozens of Interment Facilities in Iraq, including two tent camps outside Abu Ghraib.
"We honest to God had some pretty lofty ideas when we went over there -- we're building a country," says DeLand.
That attack probably hastened the transfer of military prisoners into cells at Abu Ghraib constructed to house common criminals, says DeLand, and may have resulted in the mixing of low-risk Iraqi prisoners with suspected terrorists or Baathists whom Bush dealt into his "Deck of 52 Cards."
That volatile mix of inmates, the pressure to extract intelligence from detainees and the push to reopen Abu Ghraib under constant fear of sniper and mortar attacks, contributed to the collapse of proper oversight at the prison, DeLand says, and may have fueled the abusive treatment of Iraqi inmates by U.S. military police.
DeLand says Brig.Gen.
DeLand, though, had returned to Utah before prisoners at the tent-and-fence Internment Facilities surrounding Abu Ghraib were transferred into the reconstructed bricks-and-mortar prison.
By late summer 2003, after reopening prisons at Al Tasferat (400 beds), Al Rusafa (416 beds) and Al Salhya (100 beds for women and juveniles), McCotter and DeLand selected an Iraqi colonel named Juma Zamel to run those prisons, as well as Abu Ghraib when it reopened.
When Karpinski instead suggested a U.S. military officer run the facility, McCotter "said, 'No way, this is a civilian prison,' " DeLand says.
McCotter and DeLand worked closely with MPs from the 72nd Military Police out of Henderson, Nev., and Indiana's 494th MPs, but they say they had no contact that they can recall with the 372nd MPs implicated in the abuse at Abu Ghraib, which began a month after the Utah men left Iraq.
DeLand agrees.
"The military doesn't know how to get people out of prison, they only how to get them in," DeLand says."That's a big, big problem."
80's While at Leavenworth, DeLand says McCotter, 63, worked with Colin Powell, then a deputy commander at the Kansas Army base, now President Bush's Secretary of State.
Also in Iraq, Gary Deland, another controversial former head of the Utah Department of Corrections.Anderson (SLC Mayor) said he was sadistic in the way he ran the state prison system in the mid-to-late-'80s - a claim Deland denied.
Gary DeLand is Executive Director of the Utah Sheriff's Association and a criminal justice consultant and trainer with expertise in policy development, jail/prison standards, legal issues, staff training and architectural projects for new jails and prisons.He began his corrections career in the 1960's and was the Salt Lake County Jail administrator from 1972 - 1979.He received a B.S. in Physical Education (with Corrective Therapy certificate), a B.A. in Sociology (with Criminology emphasis) and in 1985 earned his Master of Public Administration.DeLand was originally scheduled for the initial deployment in May, but would not join the group until 6 weeks later after a misfiled/misplaced passport application held him stateside.
--McCotter's predecessor, Gary DeLand, who headed the agency in the late 1980s, when civil rights lawyers charged his department denied appropriate medical care to inmates.
DeLand has denied the charge.A jury awarded nearly half a million dollars to an inmate incarcerated in 1989 when he suffered renal failure.
The jury found DeLand and other officials violated the inmate's constitutional rights be delaying medical care.
