oh the bullys in the cell made me get off my bunk they act like the own the cell and, the guards did nothing about it. i only weigh 94 npounds so i was picked on constantly. the stupid nurse Angie gave me a antibiotic after i told her i was allergic to it. She said it was a different one and to shut up. I was only there for a 6 year old FTA Ive never been in trouble before.

Yeah, I asked Janis once if they were going to start selling boots and shovels on the comissary sheets. She asked me why and I said, "So we can shovel out some of the bullsh*t in this jail." She had no reply to that. The KRRJ is crooked as hell.

You definately are way under fed in that nasty jail.For breakfast you get a bisquit and 2 spoonfuls of gravy and no milk ever. The only time you get milk is when you have cereal which is once a month. The lunch and supper is so nasty you can't eat it. If you don't have family to put money on your books to buy canteen you would literally starve to death. A child couldn't live off the portions they give you. Something really needs to be doneabout that jail. They let my husband get beat almost to death a couple yrs. ago. The guards beat the inmates I witnessed that myself. Even the women guards. They treat the women inmates unfairly the men get to work in there cooking,cleaning and do the laundry etc. The women don't never get out of there cells. In the spring and summer they can cut grass and pick up garbage, but i think the men should be doing that.
The women should cook or do the laundry! the guards bring tobacco in for the inmates and drugs there are more drugs in there than on the streets.
They pay the guards to bring the stuff into them.
You can't even get medical attention in that hell hole! SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE WITH THAT JAIL!!!!!!!!!!

Janis Feltner stays high on xanx's all the time I witnessed her fall over her own feet one day,and she almost wrecked taking us to court because she couldn't hold her eyes open. The women guards screw the guy inmates and I'm speaking about Linda she told all us she screwed rodney little in there NASTY something needs to be done. people are raped by guards but who can they tell no one is going to believe them over a guard! Tell me what you think about this!!!!!or if you have witnessed any of this!!!

That jail is so nasty there is mold growing off the vents in there.It hangs about three inches off of them.It is also growing in the showers and everything.The guards only wanted to clean it when the state was suppose to come but they never did. It ain't no wonder the inmates stay so sick all the time. It is so unhealthy in that nasty place.
FOOD IS AWFUL!!AND NOT ENOUGH TO EAT!!!!!
THE GUARDS ARE CROOKED AND BEAT ON PEOPLE. MOSTLY THE DEFENSELESS ONES. AND WHAT CAN YOU DO YOU CAN'T TRY TO FIGHT BACK THEY WOULD KILL YOU LITERALLY..........

I personally have never been in jail but I think you got it to easy. I think you should have to grow whatever they eat. Medical attention only if you pay for it. Times need to change the tax payers are fed up supporting low lifes. If you don't like treatment, stay out of there. In the summer they should grow a vegetable garden and can foods for the winter. If I was over the food you wouldn't get koolaid, you'd get WATER, all day. Soup beans for lunch and dinner, bologna sand for breakfast. I'm personally sick and tired of people thinking some one owes them stuff. Tax payers are tired of paying for sorriness. If you do the crime then do your time. No cigarettes & no tv, no computers. Make em read if they can't have the ones who can teach the others. Jail has gotten so far out of hand. Once your in jail you should have to earn the right to have rights again. Make them work everyday don't let them just lay around thinking everything is free. If I do.t work I don't eat and you don't either. Cause my taxes support your food stamps. I'm sick of seeing food stampers in the store buying better food than I can afford. Selling them for POP. People are tired of working and you all reaping the benefits and its gonna change.

Hahaha... I guarantee people would rather eat fresh grown food from there, than the crap they serve you.

There is no smoking allowed in most jails and there are certainly not computers- I think you might be mistaking jail for prison. Most people who have to do time in jail, also have to pay for it- it is generally included in there fines/restitution.

Jail is big business and it is not the inmates getting rich... LOL

TO WHATEVER!you call people in jail LOW LIFE well thats not true,most people out here does just as much as the people in jail,they just haven't got caught yet,prob,even some of the people you know,you just dont know about it,druggies are sneacky,they know how to make you think they are fine,im clean now,been clean foe 9 months now,im proud of me,but you know what its hard ,ive had it rough,but i have learned dont put nobody down for what they do cause sometimes it come back and bites you in the ass,so be careful what you say,if you have kids you dont know what they will do,they grow up and make bad desisions just like everybody else,so just watch out what you say about people in jail,might just happen to somebody in your family,then you gonna call them a LOW LIFE too.answer that one if you can?

well I have been in perry county jail four times letcher county once nad when knott county was running i was there once, but by far perry county treats the inmates the worst, i had a hard time getting my blood pressure medication when i was in there i understand that you shouldnt be able to just say ow i want this and get it from the jail but when you are legally prescribed medicine by law they should have to give you that medicine but unless a judge specifically writes it on a order you will not get ur correct medicine, the nurse angie has personally looked at me and told me not to worry about what she was giving me and shut up and take it!! when it comes to a medication that manages my heart i dont think shut up and take it is the best way to deal with it, she claims she doesnt need a dr cause she knows more than they do she gives you other people's medicine and lies to you about what she is giving u and my dr told me that her changing my heart medicine like that could have killed me yeah i was in jail over doing something wrong... speeding .. un paid fines because work is hard to find ... let me guess all you people on here have never broke the speed limit never been late on a bill payment.. they do not feed you right the guards will tell you to shut up or they will wire your jaw shut i was released when i went to court and when i got back to the jail they did not release me and still did not release me the next day and i got put in the hole for asking them to check on my paperwork since i should have been released luckily my mother called the county attorneys office 2 days later and finally got me released or it is untelling how long they would have left me there when i was supposed to have been released since i was arrested over a 150 unpaid fine... and stayed 5 days cause they would not find my paperwork i am sure it cost the state that much to put me in there for 5 days .. guards tazer ppl and beat ppl for no reason its pathetic... i was in with a state inmate who said even "the jungle" louisville metro jail with thousands of inmates was better than perry co atleast in metro you could get work detail or go to the yard what do you get in perry countyt piss hot koolaid or dog vomit for food.. there are like 3 ppl that work at the jail that are good workers and treat ppl fairly one actually told me to just drop my head as one was cussing me out when i was getting released to avoid any more jail time and i was just asking where my wallet was.. so yeah it is in-human!!!! I would rather be anywhere including under a rock eating bugs than in perry co jail!!

Ived stayed there for 2 weeks and it was the worst experience of my life . The guards do treat you like shit. they threanted to shoot me with a taser just bc i asked them to take a shower, they try to expolite fear in the inmates eyes. And the other people are right they dont feed u enough, they give you small portions of food , that isnt enough to fill you up.My friend got put in the baby raper cell and the inmates did try to rape him, they tied him up with t-shirts and beat him in the back of the head. well he got put in the hole with me for protective custody and he had a concusion and the guards denyed him to go see a nurse . so basicly he sat in the hole with a concusion for 3 days . like the guards dont care about the inmates at that jail. The inmates pay the guards at kentuck river regional jail to go out an buy them tobacco . so the guard are corrupt at that jail. I lived there for 2 weeks and i know what iam talking about. That jail is corrupt, and the federal Bureau investigaion should be sent out there to investigatee. beacuse the guards that run that jail are unhuman and corrupt. people get locked up for animal cruelty , but guards are aloud to beat up inmates for know reason . it doesnt make sense to me.

In Greenland, if you are charged with a crime and jailed. Everyday you go out to work and you are packed a lunch. Every evening you report back to the jail. When you get paid every week, you have to pay your fee for services to the jail. If you don't come back from work that evening they hunt you down and shoot you on the spot.
Now it seems to me this would solve a lot of problems on both sides of this debate. If you want better food, go work and pay for it, learn a trade and better your life.
Those of you who are complaining about paying for the food, well you wouldn't have too they would pay for it themselves...Problem Solved!

The jail is to small. The place is way over crowded. The bonds are set ways to high. They hold you over way to long.

KRRJ is worse jail in Kentucky. They feed you very little so you have to buy stuff from them, everything is way over priced, Roman noodles for .50$, pops for a dollar fifty. Where does the money go? The medical care is pathetic, woman miscarry, diabetics don,t get the right meds, if you have broken bones forget it no xray and certainly no cast. The jail gets 45.00$ a day from the state for each inmate. They spend less than a dollar to feed them. Lexington jail for example has to carts that go around each day, one hot and one cold, the hot cart has pizza, fried chicken, hot coffee, hodogs, etc., the cold cart has ice cream, cold sandwiches, cold pop, etc. The KRRJ is simply a money making enterprise that cares about nothing but money and to hell with anything else.

Be sure you commit crimes only in the Lexington area so you will be jailed there. This will solve the problem.
