Inmate Rodney Thomas claims he witnessed a deputy assault an inmate, then lie about it. Thomas was sent to solitary confinement. He has filed an extraordinary hand-written lawsuit against Sheriff Bradshaw.

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Inmate Rodney Thomas, currently serving time for burglary and assault, claims he was sent to solitary confinement after witnessing guards assault an inmate.

Thomas alleges in his suit that PBSO Guards have an “unwritten policy” of taking “punitive action” against inmates who witness guards assaulting other inmates. Thomas claims that he witnessed a “Deputy Nash” repeatedly punch and kick an inmate — then concoct a story with other guards to cover up the assault.
