The Windy City Times posted an article about the ACLU of Illinois’ lawsuit against Bureau County for not giving Arick Buckles his HIV medication while he was in jail. Buckles said he asked for his medication at least 21 times, but the jail refused to provide it.
"Bureau County had an obligation under the Constitution to provide the medical care necessary to protect the health of Arick Buckles," said John Knight, LGBT project director at the ACLU of Illinois, in a statement. "They failed. They elevated concerns about costs and price of health care above the need for health care."
