    (1) what was a guy convicted of drug charges doing in a SuperMax prison in the first place?  Was he a drug kingpin? Did he do something violent to get himself transferred to the SuperMax? Does Kentucky just throw non-violent drug dealers into a SuperMax?

    (2) why didn't someone talk to this inmate to see why he was becoming anxious?  Find out what was bothering him. Perhaps he needed anti-anxiety medication, but anxiety doesn't always have to be helped my medications (many of which are addictive); sometimes it just takes talking to someone and helping them that way.
