Alright, someone name the other person not named in the article that also committed an offense but CKNJ played favorites with and did not name. Is it a family member of someone who works at the news journal?

Someone, Anyone?

Benningfield is only acting on this because it is election time and people have been critical of his staff.
You will see all kinds of strange sights at election time.
From what I saw in the paper, this didn't amount to an ethics violation anyway. The prisoner was not at the Taylor County Jail. Nothing reported in the paper constituted violation of ethics.

There has been many good people fired or have resigned from the Taylor Co. Detention Center since it has opened. A turnover this large, and the fact that most of those that left were the experienced people is a direct result of a lack of supervision and management. Any one that knows anything about Quality Control will verify this. I also know that an employee under felony indictment with the Federal Government is not working but is receiving full salary. How can this be good for the budget?
Is the Jailer really doing the wonderful job that some people think he is?

If so many people have been fired, obviously like any other job, it's because they haven't followed the rules and guidelines of their specified job. Just like the current ones fired, due to dating inmates or at least favoring one specific. The should have posted the employee guidelines in the paper along with what they did say about the employee getting fired. If I had a family member in jail I wouldn't want him or her being favored more over another person. Just as vice versa. There's more going on with some of the jail employees and the inmates than what you think. Benningfield has EVERY right to fire someone that's not following protocol. That's any job. Think of it if you were in his shoes.

It is called Policy and Procedures.
It appears that this imate was transferred to the Adair County Jail. If there was a relationship between the staff and the inmate this was the proper thing to do. They must be transferred to a different facility if the inmate is the friend or relative of a staff member. That appears to have been according to policy.
If there have been that many fired from the jail, why didn't these firings make front page? Why did it become front page news during election time.
Which policies were violated.
Protocol is not reason for firing. Laws are.

I say we vote out Rick and let Hack have his go at it. I believe he would clean out this place and give us a jail to be proud of. Vote Hack Marcum in November!

Who cares if it's election time. As you say, Policy and Procedures were not followed. If she or any body does this with one inmate, more than likely it would happen again with a different one. Get rid of the problem BEFORE it happens again.

Does what? You say IT, I say what did she do? If the inmate is in another jail, her contact with the inmate was not against policy.

The Gribbins lady did her job well but was fired for an altercation with another staff even though the other staff was also at fault. How does that follow policy and procedure. She proved her case and received unemployment benifits. Makes you wonder if anyone there even knows their Policy and Procedure.

Exactly, if they do it once it will happen again. That's why I'm concerned about his employee dealing with state inmates. She was fired from a previous job for this and I heard she is doing it again. I know what she did cause she was married to my cousin. he kicked her a** out. c'mon Benningfield open your eyes. we do need Hack to clean this place up. I think he will cause there are some he don't want. He a good man. Let's give him a chance.

she was having a relationship with Johnnie Reardon an inmate at the time. that's why she lost her job. not only that but it was also known by the animal control officer that was the work release supervisor of the prisoner and he would even make arrangements for them to have time together. at least this is the story that has been passed along the way. not saying it to be true, just what was told.

If you read the paper it you would read:

The information states that the employee, Patsy Bryant, sent money to the inmate, which Benningfield says is a violation of jail staff ethics codes.

The inmate had been housed at the Taylor County jail before being transferred to Adair County, Benningfield said.

~He was housed in the TAYLOR Co detention Center BEFORE sent to Adair Co. He was obviously sent to Adair to stop this from continuing to happen. But she continued anyway while he was in Adair Co.

If this is the reason the inmate was transferred, shouldn't she have been fired then instead of waiting to see if it continued. That's where I believe Benningfield knows nothing about ethics or policy and procedure. Course Benningfield can't take care of his own problems so how can he run a jail. Someone posted he is never at the jail. Yes his wife has left him and he will probably never have another one. she is not living at the house. His neighbor admitted this. what is this? his fourth or fifth one. lets vote Hack and give him the chance he deserves.

Jon Hawkins is reportedly the other person who was let go at the jail. He should have been fired and his name printed in the CKNJ News Journal. Report all the news if they're going to report any. I for one am glad he was fired. Score one for Campbellsville. Another good day in the ville.

Hey wired! Why didn't you put your name in the basket to take over Benningfield's job? Unless you actually work at the jail or were there when it happened you have absolutely NO clue as to what went down. Everyone knows that any paper never gets the full or complete true story of the situation or both sides. It was stated that Patsy wouldn't return the call to comment.

I'm not taking up for wired, but, I think he is right. If that's the reason the inmate was transferred, why wait to see if it continued? The violation had already occurred. As for the newspaper not giving the whole story, the story came from Benningfield. It's kind of funny that he refused to give info until the paper sent an Open Records Request. He probably didn't even know what it was.
