Jail already suffering bed shortage

It was just about a year and a half ago that Emmet County officials celebrated the opening of a multi-million dollar expansion and renovation of the county building and county jail. via Petoskey News Review

Its really a shame that the people are celabrating putting people in jail. Its time that we look at the reason people are breaking the law and fix the problems. Prisons and jail are the dumbest growth industries in this world.

YOU SHOULD GO TALK TO SOMEONE THAT IS IN JAIL. THEY WILL TELL YOU THEY KNOW THEY CAN DO A CRIME GET ABOUT 3 MONTHS IN JAIL AND GET OUT AND NOT BE GOOD. THEY CAN GO TO REHAB AND NOT EVEN GET FINISHED WITH IT AND THEY WOULD RATHER SIT IN JAIL WERE THEY GET FED 3 TIMES A DAY (AND HAVE NO BILLS SO THEY THINK) TO PAY. SOME INMATES DO NOT KNOW HOW TO NOT BREAK THE LAW. FACE IT, IT IS EASIER TO STEEL THAN GET A JOB THAT PAYS UP HERE. I WORK FOR THE LAW I SEE IT ALL THE TIME.
