Dear Yaz and bella

It wouldn't happen to me or anyone in my familty because we aren't filthy ass thugs parading around in orange tops because of being incarcerated. Of course the dude who got the life beat out of him probably had some red mixed in with his orange if you get my drift. Again no one cares. Once you go adrift of the law you are no longer relevant in normal society.

Dear win win situation,
You sound like one of those 400 pd trolls who have nothin better to do but go on websites and bash people you don't know. You don't have the balls to go tell any of the inmates at SRJ what you just said here, hence why came on here and say it. Very easy to hide and run your fat mouth behind a computer screen. And as far as yor family goes, I bet all y'all are some fat f$cks who drain money off of decent paying taxpayers. And frequent every fast food joint round here. Damn it's easy to talk s$hit behind a monitor. You're pathetic.

Jail isn't a hotel. It isn't a nice place. MEAN, ruthless people are there for a reason. Are all guilty absolutely not. Are all there because of circumstances within their control...99% of the time yes....that is called reality. Until tapes are reviewed NO one can know what really happened. The fact is inmates DO intermingle. They do disagree on things, and some handle discord better than others....Let the mans family grieve and process what has happened before judgment is made. That's the HUMAN thing to do in any situation....

There are officers fired for corruption at any jail. Jails are desperate when hiring officers because they don't provide a great salary and you are basically in jail along with inmates for 12 hours a day...oh yeah and don't forget about the mandated overtime because they are ao short handed...not many people want to spend their life in a jail. It's a hard work life balance and the state retirement is nice is you ever make it past 50 years old.

And miss west side, you obviously have never worked in a jail. Poor man should not be used in the same sentence as inmate. Obviously he was doing something illegal or he would not be in jail. Save your pity for matters that deserve it.

LoL The man was locked down in a cell with his roommate. It wasn't in a gymnasium or out in a yard. The they were locked in their cell by other inmates, who stood outside the cell acting like nothing was going on., and the the roommate wanted his mattress. They started to fight, and the younger inmate slammed his head on the concrete table... end of story. Noone could have kept that from happening.

No alarm was set, no cry for help, and not one inmate in that pod said anything.

The inmate killed was a habitual criminal. He had been in that jail over and over again. Although he is a human being, He chose the surroundings he was in and on that day he had his life ended for choices to be in a jail instead of outside the criminal element.

Anyone who blames the Jail system for ignorant life choices probably has been in jail just as many times.

Here is a rule for you... Follow rules, and stay out of an environment where stupid people are gathered together to be treated like cattle. Allot of people who make stupid choices living together, will make the environment STUPID.

It use to be Innocent until proven guilty. Now it is guilty until proven innocent. My heart goes out to the men/women who have truly been falsely accused and sentenced, God have mercy on them!

Usually leaders take responsibility when things go wrong. Just. simple idea, let's see, baby cameras cost 100 bucks, if i couldn't find the money as a leader I'd pay out of my own pocket. Things like that ....

Fact is a man died under their care. Heads need to roll!
