Sorry for your child! Doesn't this get anyone thinking about what is really going on in the wells county jail? how safe are our loved ones in there and are they really being taken care of like they say the jail is telling you they are? i think that someone should do something and find out what goes on behind those closed doors and walls of the wells county jail before another family in wells county has to go through this again because of the law in forcement!!

Inmates aren't even allowed to have clean clothes unless they buy them. They can't even shower with out buying soap and shampoo. It seems that in order to keep infections down, clean clothes, socks,soap and shampoo should be provided. Oh, and cleaning the cells, blankets, towels, clothes, etc. should be done, too.

Instead, inmates are sleeping on the floor with filthy, wholy blankets that are as thin as newspaper. Jail isn't supposed to be fun, but geez, this is ridiculous.

My chids father is in that jail and he has staph infection I am worried,he didn't have it before he was sent there......The government covers its back. It probably wasn't very public because of the pay off..I would of rather of went public then take money.Money isn't everything and it only lasts so long.sorry about your son.you sold out though.
