i agree with previous comment. how much was this really investigated? no matter what a person is in jail for, they are still human and deserve to be treated with respect. maybe the guards need to stop and think-how will i be treated when i am jailed???

Whatever you got while in jail for the crime you committed. You are an ex inmate, well I am sure you have seen prisoners that deserved whatever in the hell they got while behind bars.
It is my opinion many other prisoners ought to be brought out in boxes so that they are not walking around on the streets being a danger to society.
Those who are in jail or prison did not have any respect for their victims, so ex-inmate you can take your "deserve respect" and shove it up your butt without lube.
You deserve

Whatever the hell you got behind bars, as well. What do you think jail or prison is a fricken daycare center. I am sure you will see the inside of many more jail cells in your time, and probably a long-term stay in prison. I think you are a dirtbag.

I was there when this happened. That guy actually died from cutting himself. Nothing the Deputys did killed him. That man cut himself. The Deputys do not do not put tape over imates mouths...There you go blow up your story acting like your billy bad ass. You were probably in jail for not paying your damn child support.

You know what criminal, when you go to jail, it is because more than likely you have committed a "crime". You are not in jail to receive massages, manicures, pedicures and facials. You are there because you are a criminal, and you are not there to be pampered with all the comforts of a Hilton Hotel. You act like a animal in jail, expect to be treated like a animal in jail. Your mouth was probably taped shut, because you could not keep it shut and were spitting at the jail staff. There is always more to the story when a criminal describes his or her little visit to jail. So, Get Real and tell the whole story.

You deserve,
You are such a loving, thoughtful and caring person. As are you, On the Edge. I can only bet that your mothers are so proud of the way you've each turned out.

Not everyone who has been jailed is a bad person. There are all sorts of reasons a person can wind up on the wrong side of the law. And, unfortunate as it may be, good people do sometimes find themselves in jail.

And yes, at only 22, this is still someone's son, no matter what he may have done.
As it just so happens, I am serving jury duty this week. I could only hope that someone like either of you two would be presented in the courtroom, and that I could know all the hatred you feel inside.
While I am normally a merciful person, I would have little mercy on a person like either of you.

But, at least I have enough sense to know that a person is assumed to be innocent until proven guilty. And, even if proven guilty, they're still a person.

Oh, and one more thing. Here's just a few of the other low-life dirtbags in our society that don't deserve the air that they breathe - at least according to the two of you...
