Terry Jones has not even announced..I think Steve Burns has done an excellent and professional job during his time in office.Jones is a good old boy,but I do not believe he has both oars in the water..

Sheriff Burns is trying to stack the county commissioner elections so he can get his new detention center which, in turn, will mean higher taxes. In the meantime, there are lots of empty factories that could be renovated for a fraction of what a new jail would cost.

And let's not even mention the soaring crime rate and the rampant drug dealings going on in the area.

As I see it, Sheriff Burns is NOT in this job for the people, but for his own glory.

you hit the nail on the head...RIGHT what about the old walmart store that has parking and lots of room they can convert that and the people of Greene county would not be out as much money.. we need to think long and hard about this jail

You people seem to forget the fact that Terry Jones is the reason that Greene county had to build a workhouse in the first place.During his term in office,Jones managed to get the jail sued and decertified in only 3 years. That is a pretty good record.What do you think???

The jail needed to be decertified and still does. 6-8 people are in cells made for 4 people, with only 4 bunks..the rest sleep on the floor. That's still the situation today. You see other jails on the news being sued and decertified for things like this all the time, but not good ol Greene County.

Let them keep 8 or 10 to each cell. They are not there because they were late to church.
If the state of Tennessee can do better, let them pick them up and place them in a state facility. It is time to stop cuddling this scum. Burns just wants a building with his name on it.

Need to bring back the chain gangs. It ain't fair that the bums get to lay around in a cell all day without contributing something back to the community. It's a joke to send prisoners out on work release. They were put in jail, not a place to spend the night and go to work the next morning.

I don't think we need the chain gang but we do need tougher laws and education for these men and women who keep going back.. If the jail is like that then you would think no one would want to be there.. I think think the judge should make sure they have a high school education at least and if they don't tack on there sentence,give them a chance then maybe they will try harder and not be stealing from us who do work and obey the laws

The jails are full of people that don't want to do any better. Unless you make the environment of jail worse than the outside world, they will keep going back in where they get 3 meals and lots of rec time. While you are out there making a living for yourself and family, those bums are inside, watching TV, reading, and consuming your tax dollars.
