Hundreds of people die every year in local jails throughout the U.S.

The latest available numbers indicate that 885 inmates died in the custody of local jails in 2011, according to the Bureau of Justice statistics. One inmate who's fallen victim to that fate is 37 year-old Kyam Livingston, a woman who entered a Brooklyn jail cell on a non-violent offense. And though she would only have to be there temporarily, while waiting to be arraigned by a judge, Livingston would never get the chance to leave. RT's Ameera David reports.
