DECATUR, Ga. (CBS46) Protesters gathered outside DeKalb County Jail on Wednesday evening to voice their concerns of alleged inmate mistreatment. Among those claims is that inmates do not receive proper medical treatment.

Multiple protesters were arrested, however a final number and charges have not yet been made public.

We do know police moved in when the protesters started to lie down on the sidewalk as an act of defiance.
