We are told by the jailer, that they have taken jail tracker off to protect innocent people.
Where does the Mt Advocate get those mug shots they put in their paper? They don't seem too concerned with someone being innocent until proven guilty.
Gee. Wonder why Whitley and Laurel counties aren't as conscientious as our our Mary? Aren't we so fortunate?
The Advocate gets the pictures through open records act is my guess.

Anyone who wants can go in and view this info. I use to work for a newspaper after school, and they would send me to the courthouse to get the courthouse records. I could look up everyone who was arrested and what they had done. I'm sure you can, too.

But as for protecting the innoncent, I agree completely. A lot of people have had their lives ruined. I'm all for jailtracker, but how about when charges are dropped, or you're found innoncent, your info is taken off the site? Why not?

Why should my neighbor be allowed to go down and say I molested them, my picture go on there and it say child rape under my picture, then two weeks later when the person says, OK I LIED, does my info remain on there for the rest of eternity?

I'll guarantee you, many people have been murdered over things on jailtracker that were not true. Many people have been denied jobs because of things on jailtracker that were not true. Many people have been victimized and picked on and bullied because of things on jail tracker that were not true.

You were getting paid to do a job so going to the Court house or jail was normal. For a great number of people here in Knox County that is not possible. I myself cannot go as often as I would like and get the information I'm entitled too. Jailtracker is a conveniece and a great comfort to many. I can see for myself that my elected officials are doing the job I expect. I can even see what law enforcement officer is making arrests and who are not. Most of all I can see who is being arrested and why. Jailtracker does more good for the community than harm and provides a service that most other communities dont have to beg for.

What if someone escaped from jail and was a known rapist and he came to your door and you didn't have any ideal what he looked like and you opened your door! When he escaped you could have looked his picture up on Jail Tracker and could have reported him to proper authorities!! That is just one example I could use.....

I agree, it would be helpful to be able to see what someone who escaped from jail looked like, rapists or not.

But really, you'd open your door to a stranger? Hell no. You stand on the other side of the door with your pistol in hand, you ask what they want. If they want to try to force their way in, or won't go away when asked, you blow them off the porch.

And again, you know there is a known rapists who has escaped from jail in your area, and you'd open your door to a stranger because you didn't know what the person looked like?

I don't think you thought that statement out very well. You don't open your door to a stranger no matter if there is an escaped inmate or not.

I'd like to say something to you.

I don't agree with a lot of what you say. I honestly believe some of what you say is silly and petty and you are just plain wrong. But I respect you because you do not resort to name calling and you stick to the issue and your beliefs. If you feel strongly about something, even something as small as jailtracker, you at least try to be professional about it. I can tell you are a pretty educated person, not so much English and grammar smart, but street wise and smart to what goes on in our world. So like I said, I may not agree with you, and I continue to believe you are wrong on some things, and it almost seems like there is an alterior motive in this jailtracker conversation, but I have to respect you for the way you handle yourself. Very few on Topix are able to remain professional and respectful like you have and for that, I do respect you.

Thank you. The only motive I have is to gain support from others. I would like to see the Court House fill up with people in support of jailtracker at the next Fiscal Court meeting. I would even welcome those who oppose jailtracker. We all should make more of an effort to be better informed.
