It doesn't... When I originally was told something was going on, I was told it was a riot. Now that I know what happened, I do not consider that a riot!:)

I hope the drughead ( he looks like a skinhead) who robbed us 3 times in 6 mo. is enjoying his stay in that mess.They say 3rd.time is charm.(Caught red-handed in broad daylight)Now I have to keep a loaded shot gun beside my bed and I hate having to live like this.He was a trusted family friend,I would have given him anything he needed but he did'nt ask.He took my gold bracelet (valued at $2.500.00) and all the other gold and diamonds he could swipe quickly.He took this to a melt down place and got about $150.00 for it all. The melt down dealers are as guilty as the thieves are.They knew he could not have had those items legally,they knew he needed money to buy drugs with. So " Mister M" enjoy your vacation.

Hey guys,
I know there is alot of criminals in that jail, but look they do the crime they do the time. Stop hating on "EVERYBODY". Your not suppose to hate anyone! I Know a few people that is in there and drugs just got ahold of them. They need a REAL DOCTOR. NOT A VETERTIAN. The C.O.s need to be retrained to do their [email protected] job. And quit being a holes and maybe the inmates wouldn't do this.
They got nothing else to do. The hot water has been tore up, the food is slop and there is so much more i could write a whole page of it. So "US" Tax payers need to get better medical attention in that jail and better c.o's Or it will just get worse. We are the tax payers so its up to us.

There is nothing that I hate more than a thief. The jailbird may do the time for their crime but the victim does the suffering and taxpayers foot the bill so that the criminal can do the time. Jails should be unpleasant enough that any jailbird would choose never to return.

Sounds like you are the parent of a jail bird. Guess you left'em on the sugar tit too long and now they have to have a crutch. Poor little thing it's not his/her fault, it's not your fault, it's probably the fault of the person who got robbed, scamed, or attacked because they had the nerve to exist and not secure their valuables. DON'T EXPECT SYMPATHY FROM ME, I THINK THEY SOULD WEAR PINK AND LIVE IN A TENT.

Why don't you just put your address on here, where I'll know where to send the thousands of dollars I'd like to donate to help these unfortunate victims of circumstances. Nobody made them take the drugs that got a hold on them. Only they can stop this, no doctors, preachers,or rehabs. You got to want to stop in order to stop!

Actually, God is more powerful than ANYTHING! If addiction is so easy to overcome Neil, why are you still puffing away on those cigarettes and morbidly obese? And WE TAXPAYERS had to pay for the effects of YOUR addiction too, Neil Matthews! How much did all of that medical treatment cost (notice the Takoma Saved My Life! billboards with jail administrator Neil Matthews picture all over it). Like the Good Book says, get that plank out of your own eye before you start criticizing...

I don't think some people realize that the jail conditions are not just bad, but what most people would think of as inhumane. The people who are "hating on everybody" either have never had a friend
or loved one in the jail (pray you never do), work there, or basically don't care about others. What people need to remember is that they themselves could wind up there (never say never - and yes even innocent people sometimes get arrested)or someone you love could wind up in there and it totally changes your view. Yes, people are denied needed medical care all the who time by c.o.s who think they are doctors. For example, two years ago a man actually had his scrotum slammed in the cell door and it took 15 mins for an officer to release the door. His testicle was swollen to three times the normal size by that time. The officer was told there was nothing he could do to help him and told him he would
have to fill out a request to see a nurse. He wound up having his testicle removed. That seems a little unreasonable. I have heard horrible stories about severly mentally ill people being put naked in concrete bunkers for days on end instead of transferring them to mental hospitals like they used to or giving them there meds. I know it's not the Hilton, but use some common sense! Conditions are horrible in there and it's not making the crime situation better.

I agree the jail is in horrible condition, but this didn't happen over night. It has been bad for a few years now. What I read and hear on the news are that the same people that get out , are the same ones that keep going back. Now seeing that they have lived in these conditions, seems to me the jail must have better conditions than where they live on the outside. Go figure.

I believe jails have to keep a minimum level of care. Complain to Feds and St√Ęte and get an inspection unannounced performed. Next file class action lawsuit. I think people should pay for their crimes but sometimes Greene County railroads the innocent and should be HELD accountable for their actions!

More then likely since he has a job with the jail and its a county job the county employees of greene county has to pay for their medical insurance. That tells me he paid for his medical treatment you dumbass. I'm sure you didn't. It's probably the other way around we the working class is probably paying for your medical insurance

Nope, I actually pay for my own insurance and always have. I also don't smoke, don't drink, am not overweight and eat healthy foods. The taxpayers are the ones who pay part of the insurance premiums for county employees (read the paper) and rising insurance premiums have been a concern to the county comission because rising healthcare costs means rising premiums that will result in rising taxes. All that gluttony an smoking (those are addictions) directly impact taxpayers. My point is that it is hypocritical to criticize others' addictions when you also have addictions that impact society. Of course obesity and smoking does not usually lead to violence but the financial cost to society is just as huge and people like myself are shouldering much of that cost even though I take personal responsibility for my own health. Addictions are addictions and don't go around like you are so perfect when you have that huge plank of wood in your own eye!

I worked at the jail during the scrotum incident. The guard tried to get the nurse at the time, whom was married to a Lt., but she refused and told the guard to tell the officer he had to fill out a request. The incident occured during shift change so it did take awhile to get the inmate. Also ask yourself how the idiot got his nit hung in the door. it was because he was being an idiot.

Jail is a punishment for a crime,rather it be minor or major, thats common knowledge and the way our society stays somewhat in a state of order.That being said our judicial system and correction system were set up as a deterent for doing wrong against our basic, and mostly, accepted laws. Now this is where the problem starts.The judicial and correction system in Greene county,and most counties,is not about right and wrong or about the needs of the offender to deter them to become a better citizen,its about money.sit down and think about a financial plan for your business and im pretty sure your first concern will be you need customers, then you need them to come back.now throw in the probation system in Greene county and you have the solution to your repeat customers, yep thats right its not in the counties best interest if your not coming back for more "business". Yes i know not everyone pays what they are supposed to, but our detention center still gets some state and federal funding to operate,based on jail population(i assume) So next time you think about all the problems our county has dont just blame it on our "criminals" behind bars, think about the reason they are there,yes it is their own fault, but untill our judicial system and county government returns to right and wrong first and away creative financial solutions it will not get better. Jail will always be a neccessity but rehabilatation instead of "repeat customers" need to be a priority.
