This Saturday on Behind the Blue Curtain we're going to discuss what happened to Diamond Ross in Dallas, Texas on August 18, 2018.  Dallas Police have released several hours of disturbing video that showed a shocking series of events.  Why didn’t Diamond get medical treatment at the scene?  Upon arrival at the jail, she was tossed into a wheelchair, placed in a chain link cell and left unattended.  Police initially responded after getting a call that she was in a disturbance.  DPD says officers requested an ambulance to evaluate Ross.  But officers took her into custody for outstanding city warrants after paramedics said Ross was fine and could be transported.  Officers kept her on scene for a while, but when they arrived at the city’s detention facility, Ross appeared unresponsive as they placed her into a wheelchair.  But after a detention officer tried to determine if Diamond was breathing, she called paramedics who arrived four minutes later, performed CPR, then transported to the hospital where she died. Diamond Ross’ mother said officers should not have brought her to the detention facility. “She should have gone straight to the hospital 

 We'll also discuss the Rodney Reed Story.  The execution is on hold, now we need a new trial so he can be exonerated, and the real killer brought to justice.  If you'd like to join the conversation the number is 646-716-4621, then press 1 on your phone.  Please be mindful of your background noise and mute your phone when waiting to speak.  The Facebook Live Crew and the Co-Hosts, Tyrone K Dunmore, Joseph J Moseley, LaRhonda Young and Walter Gus Glover will be in the house.
