I resently had a friend that had to spend time in the county jail. I understand that people being held there has a reason for being there and due to that they should not be at the Hilton. But there are prisoners there that cant wait to get transfered to the prison because of the way wilson county treats them. They only feed people minimal amount to survive. Then if they need anything extra they have to pay for it out of their "book" money. I also understand that if they need to see a nurse it cost them $15.00 to see her. Is there something wrong here? Please fill me in more. I am possibly getting one side of the story. I would like to do something about this if all I mentioned is true. Let me hear from you. Need both side of the story.

I have a $25 co-pay on top of the monthly insurance premium I'm paying to go see a nurse. So yeah, I think they should pay too.

Do you know anyone who can be seen by a Professional Medical Person for free and receive free care? MAYBE if your on a medical card. I for one wouldn't want to risk health problems and let them go if I we're sick just because it cost money. Probably half if not more of those county inmates don't pay for anything while there it just gets charged up and then they want to complain? ONE very easy solution is this....Obey the laws and stay out of the jail! Period!

I think that they should pay for all that they get in Jail. The Jail has to buy the stuff anyway why not have them pay for it.
Something needs done

Personally I agree with you something needs done with wilson county jail, first of all they have people working there with no experience and some have got charges before, second we give them a bunch of money to run the jail from our taxes and where does it go? If the inmate has to pay for everything even toliet paper and they get all this money from out of county inmates and yet they are broke and Fredonia keeps giving them more money. Then there is correctional officer bullying i understand they did something wrong and should be there but for the cops to harass them and their families is uncalled for. I think we should get rid of the jail and put something there that will bring Fredonia money not take it. Transfer the little bit of inmates we do have to another county I thimk the most they ever had from Fredonia was 10 and that's counting Neodesha.

People who dont know what its like in there first hand have little room to open their mouths about it. The treatment is far better (but not good) in prison. What does that say? Its not like we get rapists and murderers in our jail. Maybe I could understand that. Hell, you pay for a blanket, and it can be taken back away from you for little reason. No, not suppose to be the hilton, but come on.

My son went in on what was finally proven set up charges and was put on the work release. Yet another guy was allowed to keep everyone up all night banging chairs and screaming and my son had to be at work at 4 am. He had an auto set alarm clock that 'somehow' got shut off. Yet the jailers said it was not their job to make sure the guys got up for their rides. Needless to say my son ended up losing his job.
It may not be the jailers job to get the guys up, but it is their job to keep the troublemakers under control and with the cameras on the blocks it is their job to watch those cameras.

You know all these sad stories are touching,and my hearfelt sympathies go out to all those poor mistreated wrongly accused,underfed,unjustly framed prisoners. "NOT" !!!!! It's not a Ramada Inn.I think it should be a tent city surrounded by a lethally electrified fence,with automatic machinegun robots patrolling,programmed to shoot to kill anything that moves beyond the fence,with landmines beyond the robots perimeter.Now that would be something to bitch about. I forgot a moat full of crocodiles,but there is always flaws.Maybe we should just have a hole in the ground,with a giant lid witha big big padlock. LMAO..... NOW THAT WOULD BE A JAIL!!

Its pretty much the same people that end up there so by now you should know the rules and what the expect from you if you can't handle it don't do the crime. You can not tell me they never had a rapist in that jail cause i know better then that. The ones in there just want us to feel sorry for them but i for one don't if the rest of us can stay out of trouble so can you. Most of us work take care of our familys and make it without the systems help why sould you get a free ride.

Wow!!! Let me get this right, its the corrections staff's job to get your son or daughter up and dressed for work?? If you couldnt do it for the past 18yrs what make you think they can? Most inmates in that jail, if you read the papers have been there more then 3 or 4 times. So im thinking the jail cant be that bad. As far as out of county inmates, we should be greatful that money is being brought into our county to cover some of the cost, our own dirtbags have cost this county!! Next time you want to complaine that Correction officers dont do there job, lets remember one thing. Wilson county pays $8.00 an hr to officers who are willing to risk there life keeping you and your family safe and dope dealers off the street. Thank you Wilson county jail....

No one said they had to get him up and dressed moron! Just keep a better eye on the troublemakers, which by the way was a many time meth dealer/domestic abuser/violent person who was allowed to get away with his actions cause he knew he was getting out on my sons false charge. Unlike him, my son had a job (Cobalt Boats) and never had a problem getting himself up and off to work until he went to jail on this false charge. So why should he have had to pay for the fact that a many time violent meth cook/dealer wants to make other peoples lives miserable? Why should his freedom and livelyhood be taken away because a deal was made to get a snitch out,(who by the way ended up back there for beating up his wife and kid while methed out)? And the same guy causing the problems is the one who got out of jail thru a deal involving the false charge my son was set up on. You would think he would have shown a little more gratitude!
You are talking about a town where the family is not safe as long as meth dealers are constantly being given 'get out of jail on the backs of innocent people' cards.
