Greene County inmates are often only allowed 1 hour outside in a small cage once or twice a month. Before you say they don't deserve it, which I agree that some don't, you should remember that some people are in there for very minor offenses (non-violent, non-theft) or possibly innocent and awaiting trial.

Isn't this a violation of state and federal guidelines?

Yeah, that doesn't seem right. Murderers and rapists in prison get to go outside every day, as long as they aren't on lockdown for behavior reasons obviously.

people as well as animals all deserve to not have there body and spirit oppressed in that manner...EVER!!!!! its time to totally come free from the oppression of the dark ages. and allow a better more humane future come into play. its time to start REFORMING PEOPLE, NOT TORTURE THEM. THERE ARE OTHER WAYS, MORE HUMANE, MORE CIVILIZED TO ALTER PEOPLES WAY THINKING AND ACTIONS.ITS TIME TO STOP BEING PRIMITIVE AND START BEING BALANCED.

The reason they can't go out for recess is because, the last time they were on the playgound of law abiding citizens they committed a crime.

Soooooo! they must stay in time-out.

But the cage where they have recreation i thought was on top of the roof, away from the public. besides it is very wrong and unjust to punish all for what a few might do. also its going against state rules and guide lines. and humanity and God. but greene county is not alone, it happens every where, but it needs to change, and us that care about others need to take a stand and let our voices be heard,its time for change.

The Bible says to obey the laws of the land.

It is always easy to spot this fool's posts. Random upper case rants. Poor grammar. Let me help, it should be "... to not have their...". Most learned that 'bout the third grade. No matter if I agree with your post, I must disagree due to the obvious ignorance.

Lmbo. and wow! are you not the deep one. being sarcastic of course. your rude comments do not upset me in the least. because when it comes to being a humanitarian I feel the superior one compared to how you choose to seemingly portray your persona on here, who cares about grammar,we are talking about human beings. how shallow can one get?

I have a solution to there not getting outside time. Put their sorry asses out picking up trash and I don't mean give them 2 days for one picking it up. They should HAVE to do it, not if they want to. Also, there should be no commissary. I don't care if prisoners have to do without candy bars, cokes or cigarettes!!It's JAIL!! Not a freakin vacation.

I must admit.. it's hard for me to feel any sympathy for the jail birds when I keep thinking that most of them are drunks, pillybillies, thieves, bad-parents who refuse to pay child support, identity thieves, shoplifters, etc. etc etc. Sorry, but the sympathy just doesn't rise up here. The baretta quote above is the best.. "don't do the crime if you can't do the time" Straighten your sorry azzes up and you can have all the fresh air you want.

I agree this is one of the best comments I've read. Your other comment about obeying the law of the land, is in the bible. All that has changed though, like no prayer in school, gay marriages,etc. Sad!

Notice that either people who have been in jail or else various and sundry family members or lovers to the jailbirds don't like the truth here. lol

90% of the time people don't even get an hour a month of rec time.Some people are in there for wrecking(sober) and accidently hurting another person.Can everyone that believes no outside rec should be given say that could have never in their lives happened to them?PLEASE...you people aren't perfect.An honest mistake could land you in jail and when you get there I guarantee you would want your required hour a week.
