Police Officers Forget to Turn on GPS Bracelet


After being released from prison and fitted with his mandated GPS ankle bracelet, Salvador Medina went on a violent crime spree that included the abduction and sexual assault of three sisters, ages 15, 15 and 11, and threatening a woman with a knife while her 3-year-old child looked on. But, the GPS bracelet he was wearing had one problem: it was never turned on. Arizona DOC Director Charles Ryan apologized by saying:

“I would probably say to the victims I’m sorry that you have been victimized by this individual.”

Although he went on to say that he will hold the individuals responsible for the mistake accountable, how will that help the three sisters who went through something so horrible that it will change everything about the way they live, who they trust and a future that has now been changed forever.
