Hey bartender, I'll have what he's drinking too, but Bob is 100 percent correct. Crooked cops, crooked lawyers, crooked judges, while killers, rapists, violent criminals, and thieves get to skate because "the jails are overcrowded". Shall I name specific people, you blind-ass shitt for brains sheep fukker?

Unless you're a deadly threat to society that double-parked your car or failed to use your left turn signal, there are a bunch of neutered pussies running things now, and the bad guys know it. And Ms "Sure Thing", if you can't see what a ghetto Herkimer has become, maybe the bartender should cut you off just as surely as your father should have pulled out early.

Quit sticking up for these worthless scabs that ruin the reputation of this once-fine county. You only say what you do because you don't live among them, YET. And their coming to a theater near you. Not to mention in your mouth.

You're welcome.

What is the status of the construction? Is it going on rte 28? how did our herkimer legislators vote? we don't have the money for this, but I think the people on the legislature want this so it is going to happen. We vote out the old ones and the new guys are the same. Somebody will get rich on this and it aint't us.Talk to the people who work in the jail. They screw around big time. Padded payroll with unneeded overtime. The sheriff does'nt have a clue what is going on. Let Senator Seward and Butler help us to deal with the state and get them to back off.

Don't be nieve and think that the Sheriff is not advocating and promoting this monster of a facility. Padding, spinning and manipulating data to correspond with a given agenda.
His facility maintennance record is dismal.His current operations are being led by a self proclaimed prophacy that a new facility will be built. Instead of operating in an efficient manner he is doing the opposite to manipulate data and staisics, so isn't the DA's office.
We have all heard you can make figures say just about anything,The Legislature is master at this.

We are presently releasing criminals and sentencing criminals to wear ankle tracking devices simply to keep the jail population down. Many of these criminals know that their chance of being incarerated in Herkimer County is greatly reduced due to the present jail situation. If one of these people did something to one of your loved ones you'd be sreaming bloody murder that they weren't behind bars.

Can't have it both ways. Build the damn jail and get it done with, the price tag will only continue to climb.

I for one think that our safety is important.

No one gripes about building roads or bridges which cost millions, why are we bitching about a jail? The majority of the people in the county want the jail, there are only a handful of people telling us other citizen taxpayers what they think we want.

If you look at the average weekly and monthly popoulation of the jail and the crimes committed by those incarcerated you will find the majority are awaiting sentencing,or are accused of non violent misdemeanors. No one is saying let the Criminals run free or wear ankle bracelets, but rather some common sense and priooritizng by our DA and judges, and a speeding up of the sentencing process. The United States has the largest prison population per % of its total population than any other country.
Something doesn't seem right here. Can you say self substaining industry!
Defending and securing Second Ammendment rights is also a great crime stopper,and will keep jail populations from rapid increases.

Well if the DA would stop letting criminals plead out so his pal in county court didn't have to work.A larger jail would be exactly what we need or we wouldn't have to ship them to other counties.

Your comment supports the self substaining theory, however your logic of locking every criminal up no matter what the offense is unsubstainable in costs and not dealing in reality.

We have to have a jail, it's state mandatied and there are state minimum requirements.

The cost of the proposed jail is not 33 million. Our boys that have the county in the black are working to keep the cost about 25mil.

And before all of you geniuses chime-in, check out what the state mandated minimum requirements are and what the cost would be to our county.

Well since you seem to know it all already, why not share these minimum requirements with the rest of us. Oh, wait, that's because you have not a clue what they are. Oops!

There is no minimal requirement for the size of a County Jail, this is the unspoken truth. Each county is required to manage their own inmate populations,how they choose to do so is their call. There are guidlines and regulations on the choice of a jail, boarding out, and any other alternative or choice the county chooses regarding how to mange its inmate incaceration.
The current majoirty is choosing the 35 million dollar option.

every time a county jail has to board out, they actually have to file with the State to do so. I believe it is a variance. Any proposed jail would have to get state approval of the plans and configuration.

The monster sized jail that was originally proposed by LaBella Associates was WAY beyond what Herkimer County would ever need nor could support. They were talking upwards of 200 beds or larger. Historical crime statistics do not support the myth of an increasing inmate population in Herkimer County. Matter of fact, the historical data shows a pretty flat rate of incarcerations in our county. IMHO, 80 to 100 beds should be about as big as we need.

And this idea of boarding IN is ridiculous. Oneida County boards in almost all of Herkimer County, and Fulton County also did for a time and both still had several hundred open beds.

By law Herkimer County is to maintain a jail. There is a minimum requirement and your second video down proves just that.

Fk me, do some research.

The cases please out because our illustrious DA is always overcharging those who are arrested. Check it out. Most of these pleas are only in jail for a couple of nights.

My question is, why aren't all the Herkimer Cty jail cells being used? It's my understanding that 3-5 can't be used because the "locks don't work". Huh??
