rline personality disorder’ part Satin Wedding Dresses , probably, because Ashley was such a difficult inmate who sucked up institutional resources like a sponge.fashioning homemade ligatures, secreting them on her body, and then wrapping them around her neck.She had done so again this fall morning, and when Mr.Burnett’s camera first found her, was lying face down on the bare concrete floor of her cell in the segregation unit, her body wedged between her metal bed, which was bolted down, and a wall of the dismal seven-foot by 10.foot cell that was her home.worn by those on suicide watch

paralyzed, and waited for almost 10 minutes before rushing in to cut off the ligature.During those 10 minutes, the young woman’s wheezing turned to gasping, the pauses between the tortured gasps lengthened, and the infrequent, irregular and ever-so-slight movements of her head stopped.Though jurors have not yet heard the details, they have been told that the guards’ orders abruptly changed in the weeks before Ashley died.Where always before, they had rushed into her cell at the first sign of distress to remove the ligature or whatever weapon she was using to hurt herself, prison management had changed its tune and now wanted guards to enter Ashley’s cell only if she had stopped breathing.Several actually had been disciplined for going into her cell too soon, and for showing the teen too

, trying to see enough of her to monitor her as Mr.had seen her in similar distress before.Indeed, vessels in Ashley’s face and eyes had burst, her face had gone mottled, during other tying up

can come over so I can cut it off.Ashley, can you get it off yourself?About eight minutes later, five correctional officers entered the cell, remove the ligature, and marched out.From that point, the guards grew frantic.Within a minute, as Ashley failed to respond, they were back in her cell, one shouting for a nurse, others banging about noisily (clearly hoping to rouse the teen to consciousness), a female guard crying her name 11 times in a row.What followed then were shouts of, Is she OK?We need a mask right now!No, and I don’t feel a pulse!and Jesus Christ, I haven’t had my CPR training in 11 years!Jesus Christ, I haven’t had my CPR training in 11 years!Firefighters and paramedics arrived, and took over CPR.But it appeared Ashley never breathed again.She was put on a stretcher, firemen and paramedics still working on her, and carried out through the prison to a waiting ambulance and the pinky morning light of the day she would never see.Brian Burke s Dear Diary:

his career on the copy/paste function, and a yellow-bellied premier who bailed at the first sign of trouble.Well, Brian Burke doesn’t bail.I came here for the long haul.So we missed a few

get it done by 2013, but unfortunately, all I’ve done so far is paint the left wing of a Spitfire.That, and I traded all my green model paint for glitter.In hindsight, it was a terrible trade: The
