William Avant was crushed to death by 13 employees of a South Carolina mental hospital in January.
They did not report his death until this month.

No one checked his condition.
His death was ruled homocidal suffocation.
No one was charged. Because they didn't know any better.
Or maybe, like police officers or corporation executives, hospital staff don't go to jail for malpractice.
