Yes, well known tactic to claim benzo withdrawal, although claiming any withdrawal at all puts you in a testy spot if you can't bond out or whatever.

Another little tactic that worked for me all 4 times I tried it, is to fake a seizure. I got out of the holding tanks of four separate jails doing this, even with probation violations and multiple DWLS, paraphernalia etc. charges, although they are all misdemeanors. They just took me to a hospital without escort and I either left AMA or stuck around til they okayed me to go, but I was able to sleep in my bed each of those nights. Protocol varies between jails but hey....

The faking a seizure part is interesting. Supposedly i had a seizure my fiirst night locked up. I dont think anything was done. i dont remember it at all. The other inmates said i was flopping pretty bad tho. COs just saying shit like "you did this to urself, man up.". I bit my tongue pretty badly.

what additional charges did you get for leaving the hospital?

That video just ate away at me....

I have zero doubt in my mind that I was extremely close to becoming another one of these horror stories.

The suffering induced by not receiving necessary medicine is amplified tenfold IMO, when you're in a setting like this. The anxiety ramps up, the walls close in. The vivid hallucinations become constant.... You're dying. Just, slowly.

When I went in on a 7mo Parole Violation in 2012, I was using (under the care of doctors) Methadone 120mg, Xanax 2mg and Neurontin 800mg daily.

The suffering was unreal.... The lack of empathy, was unreal.

I fell out, over and over again. I would become dizzy and I would fall. I could feel my body convulsing through my distant sensory. I could hear distant voices.

Then I would come to, the 3 men I shared my cell with becoming irritated with me, CO's accusing me of faking symptoms. Neglecting my verbal and then written pleas for help. For medical assistance. For medical aide.

Not for a high. Or a trip out of my cell.

I needed help. Because I was dying. Just, slowly. But they could not have cared less.

Instead of being placed in a medical wing of the jail, I was placed with the Main Line. It felt like every moment would bring something insane, or bring my own insanity. The disassociated feeling of WD was becoming my reality.

I lost 25lbs, which is a little for some. But is a lot for me. I couldn't eat, I could barely keep down fluids... I couldn't care for myself. My hygiene. And no one could have cared less.

I honestly feel like a came close in there. No words can really describe.... I'm just now finding this out. I can't explain it as adequately as I'd like to.

But I could feel that man's suffering. And it makes me furious that WE as a PEOPLE have decided that THIS KINDA SHIT IS OKAY!!!

Someone's son.... Someone's dad.... Someone's brother.

Gone forever.... Over a $772 dollar fucking fine!

Hope a pound of flesh will do, you fucking monsters.

(I've never met anyone as evil and soulless as a jaded County Jail C.O. The judgement they spew from their childlike mouths and the Kafkaesque pecking order are enough to make me wanna go hunt the MFers down like the true animals that THEY are.)

what additional charges did you get for leaving the hospital?

None. I was released from custody at that point, so there was nothing they could do. Don't think the police even knew what ended up happening to me, not that they would have cared.

Actually, one of the jurisdictions didn't even give me a PR bond, they just literally cut me loose and nothing else ever came of it. Next time I got picked up elsewhere I had them run a hold check and that hold and warrant was cleared from the system. Maybe they just didn't want to deal with my BS anymore haha..

What all did you do for the faked seizures?You said the key is to do it in the holding cells during intakes?
