Lake county waa horrible and I had spent almost a week in H6 an holding cell twice. Glad to see them having to answer for their actions. Now they need to fovus on Weatville Correctional Facility I spent three years there. The comditions are way worst than anyone could imagine. You feel as if your locked up in a proson in a thord world country. The windows are all busted out and the food is uncooked patatos and beans. There is no heat a.c. or evrn hot water half the time. I know they will get sued real soon and I cant wait to watch them get aired out.
