Was trolling through the Sayre topix and come across this subject. Wanted to see if Elk City had the same thoughts on it as Sayre did.

Is crappy... They didn't have hot water for two weeks! They get fed hot dogs 3 times a day... When inmates tells there family what goes on in there, the guards start treating them badly .... Think Scott should do something bout it! Regardless they broke the law and have to be in jail they should be treated the way they are suppose too be

At least they get water and fed 3 times a day.

Going to complain that they don't have DVR next?

That's what I'm saying they have it better in jail then lots of people and have no one to blame but themselves....do you have any clue how many families would love to have 3 meals a day even if it was just hot dogs or how many people don't have running water or clothes or a blanket or roof over their head or pillow to lay on or a book to read or medical attention?!? Psh you made a highly dumb comment and your loved one is probably there because they are supposed to be there and you probably enabled them

Exactly. You have to think of the mentality of the people who end up in jail though. They almost always have an excuse and blame someone else for their actions that landed them there and just have a false sense of entitlement.

They never really grow up.

Let me just say I've been to jail. I was in Beckham county in the old jail. Living conditions sucked. They were over crowded and I had to sleep in the floor. The food was absolutely disgusting. And the showers were always cold. Who do I have to blame? NOBODY BUT MYSELF. It might have sucked but it was enough to make me straighten my ass up so I won't have to go back. Yes everyone makes mistakes and most people deserve a second chance, but seriously quit b!tchin and learn from your mistakes and you won't have to deal with it.
