Sure, what the hell, if I had the power to take people's money out of their pocket and spend it however I pleased, why be concerned about what it costs? If you need more money, just raise taxes and if they don't pay, take their land or business, seize their bank account or throw their azz in jail. That's the American way!

What people need to realize is that if the county commission decides to build a jail then there will be a new jail. This isn't one persons decision but one person keeps getting the blame.

Because.........the one person you speak of, Steve Burns, keeps pushing the Commission to build a jail. He wants to have a legacy and foams at the mouth every time he has to see Washington county's or carter co's jail. They're big, new, shiny, and oh not to mentioN EXPENSIVE. he doesn't care though because you and I pay for it. WE NEED A NEW SHERIFF.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Greene county will have to do something about the current jail one way or the other. There is no choice. If the jail is decertified something has to be done and that's up to the commissioners.

. We might be getting a new Sheriff first. The people do not want a new jail, and noooooooo we don't need one or require one. Steve is the one that goes to the tci and crys about not having one, and they pat him on the back and say there, there...we'll help you get one, then they come up here and say we're overcrowded.

How about putting that old rock jail on the premises back on line? From the looks at the East Tn Mugshots site most of them would be right at home. Or, how about fixing up one of those old warehouses just off 11E for the less violent offenders. Or, maybe throw in a couple more cots per cell. Why does jail have to be so cushy for these people I thought the idea of jail was to punish people so they would not want to go in the first place.

Steve keeps throwing up dumb a$$. Why don't you go to a meeting and see how hard your sheriff spends your money. 12.2 million of it.
