At least his parents agree he should have been in there. From the sounds of it mom and dad, he has NOT learned anything from his experiences. He and others like him make me want to laugh and be angry at the same time.

WHEN I WAS AT THE SAME FACILITY FOR A MONTH I WAS NOT GIVEN MY MEDICINE THE WAY THEY WERE SUPPOSE TO BE GIVEN. I FILED A COMPLAINT AS WELL. NOT ONLY AGAINST THE JAIL BUT ALSO AGAINST THE NURSE THROUGH THE NC BOARD OF NURSING. NOTHING WAS NEVER DONE I GUESS. THE NURSE WAS NOT THERE ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. A TECH CAME IN ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AND INSTEAD OF GETTING MY MEDS 3 TIMES A DAY LIKE I WAS SUPPOSE TO THOSE DAYS I WOULD ONLY GET THEM ONCE OR TWICE. I WAS THERE IN OCTOBER OF 2008. NOW AS THE TOLIET PAPER THING I DONT KNOW HOW THEY TREATED THE GUYS BUT EACH GIRL GOT 2 ROLLS PER WEEK AND IF WE NEEDED MORE WE JUST WENT TO THE WINDOW AND ASKED FOR IT. THEY NEVER GAVE US A HASSLE OVER THAT. IT WAS MORE OR LESS THE RAZORS WHICH AFTER YOU USED THEM YOU HAD TO GIVE IT BACK. COMMON SENSE. THIS GUY HAS SOMETHING WITH THE MEDS CAUSE WHEN I WAS IN THERE WAS OTHER WOMAN THAT DID NOT GET THIER MEDS AS PRESCRIBED. THEY EVEN HAD A 82 YEAR OLD WOMAN IN THERE.

ALSO I MIGHT ADD THAT THE FOOD IN THE JAIL IS OK IT IS MOSTLY FULL OF HIGH STACHES AND FIBER FOODS TO FEEL YOU UP LIKE CABBAGE BEANS AND SO ON.

IN THE WORDS OF DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER I QOUTE.....

"In 1979 Texas Department of Corrections let me loose and they said you know what - go be a productive member of society. I said what? Here is 200 dollars for 18 months making all those big rocks little rocks. Texas was hell back in the seventies- now go do something with your life. I walked out- there is a big clock in the Texas penitentiary and it said high noonsville. I flipped it the bird and cashed my check and away in life I went. Everywhere I went for a job they said what did you do in your past- I said - will discuss. Have you ever been convicted of a felony? I said will discuss. My own father said - you can't get a drivers license, you can't vote, you might as well burn your birth certificate. I had one person that thought I could be something - that was my mother. My mother was part ________ Indian. She said- no matter what son- the sun rises on you. I ain't nothing special- I'm five foor seven soaking wet I'm 200 pounds. What I had was heart and faith and I said I'm going to do this for every convict alive and I'm going to make sure the world knows just because we fell one time doesn't mean we can't get up and let out light shine."

MIGHT I ADD THAT SOMETIMES THERE ARE INNOCENT ONES THAT GET THE CRAPPY END OF THE STICK BUT WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS. JESUS WAS THROWN IN A JAIL AND CRUCIFIED. DO YOU SAY TO HIM THAT HE DESERVED TO BE THERE. I HOPE NOT. WE ALL HAVE TRAILS TO GO THROUGH AND NO MATTER HOW YOU LIVE YOUR LIVE SOMEWHERE DOWN THE ROAD THERE WILL BE A PLACE WHERE YOU WILL HAVE TO PAST A ROAD BLOCK IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU MAY NOT DESERVE. ARE WE ALL SUPPOSE TO JUDGE YOU AND TELL YOU , YOU ARE NO GOOD AS WELL. REMEMBER THAT AS YOU DOWN SOME OF THESE PEOPLE. I DO BELIEVE THERE ARE SOME THAT DESERVE JAIL FOR THEIR CRIMES AND OTHER SHOULD NOT EVEN BE THERE. THINK ABOUT IT ...
