He didnt take the drugs because of an alchol adn drug binge??? he deserves to be quarantined. TB is no joke and he risk infecting others for his selfish vices.

I think that since TB is a very serious, contagious illness, the government should be able to briefly quarantine people who refuse to take medication. It's an extreme course of action, but in this case I think the public good outweighs the man's individual rights. However, jail isn't the right place for a quarantine. And if jail is the only place that's available, then there needs to be a better quarantine protocol.
