ok...first of all. Jail is not a place for you to call home. If you are so damn worried bout how the lowndes county jail treats your ass maybe you shouldnt be so stupid to get put in jail. I am so sick and tired of people bitching about how jails and prisons treats them. That is a place for sex offenders, murderers, rapist, etc. All be damned if I feel that they should be treated like a goddess or god. keep your ass out of jail and if you cant stop damn bitching..

I've been locked up in lowndes on 2 different occassions. On the 1st occasion i was put into a jail cell with the windows broke out and this was in February with a temperature outside of 30 degrees. I was given a very thin blanket and was left there to freeze for the night. The 2nd trip I took to Lowndes county was for a longer stay. One of the member staying in my cell with me had a bug that crawled into his ear and his ear had grown to a swelled condition. Though he told every officer he saw, no medical attintion was provided for him by the time I left. I conclude that jail should not be a place of comfort, but as americans our jail systems need to be humane. I believe that there needs to some sort of interrogation of lowndes county because there is known prisoner abuse and nothing is being done about it.

Priss: Half the people in our jails are there for victimless crimes (Smokin weed). So dont use bullshit arguments for the inhumane treatment of prisoners.

Still say "If you can't do the TIME don't do the CRIME". Keep your butt out of trouble and you will not have to go to ANY jail, good or bad!!!!!!!!!! ALL JAILS ARE STATE REGULATED AND INSPECTED, IF PEOPLES' HOMES HAD THIS MUCH REGULATION THERE WOULD NEVER BE A STARVED CHILD OR ABUSED CHILD. INMATES HAVE IT BETTER THAN MOST NURSING HOME RESIDENCES. KNOW WHAT "YOUR" TALKING ABOUT BEFORE TALKING ABOUT 'INHUMANE' TREATMENT OF PRISONERS.

Let's remenber that people are sent to jail for a number of reasons. Not just for murder or rape ect. It's ignorant to put jail and prision in the same catagory because the people in jail are not convicted, only accused. I'm not saying that some or most are innocent, but I hope you remenber this if somehow you or someone you care about is in the wrong place at the wrong time and is sent to this inhumane place.

There are people serving time in jails, You can serve up to 364 days in a county jail. There ARE convicted felons in county jails. Most jails have federal and state contracts and house their prisoners. "If you can't do the 'time' don't do the 'crime'". STOP BELLY ACHING
