You sure called that one. He would sell his soul to the devil to get on the other side(deputy or transport). Guess Johnny boy lied to him to get him to do his dirty work thinking he could get him on over there. Everyone see's what he is now. After a juvenile officer got pushed around by a former administrator, Hall didn't seem to see anything. Everyone seen that and knows they truth about Hall.

It definitely shouldn't be Chadwick. He was a horrible shift supervisor but a great butt kisser. The jail will not change until a new sheriff is elected, completely not connected to to the current sheriff. A complete change is needed, but unfortunately probably will not happen. Jack is a great man, but frankly have failed as sheriff. Marty is personable but would be a disaster as sheriff. There are a few good deputies but most are arrogant and inept who will not leave Jonesboro. Even though Boyd will probably be elected I'm voting tosh for sheriff and encourage any likewise person to do the same

Marty is a nice man, but not Sheriff material. Just another "Good ole boy". Thomas will still run the show!!! My vote goes to Tosh!!!!!

It's simple. If you want more of the same - vote for Boyd. If you want some changes, vote for Tosh. Tosh it is. Look at everything that's going on, in our city in our State in our Country. That's all everyone is talking about, we are in a terrible shape. So out with the old in with the new.

That's my opinion.

Bring it.

Tosh has my vote! Marty is just a front man for Rick since he is not running. Why is that? Why don't you all ask him....His wife, his son, etc., etc., etc.,

I'm sure it's somebody elses fault, as always.

I wish that NBC or someone would go under cover in that jail and do a story on it. That place is a joke and the human rights violations that take place are ridiculous. I will be the first to admit i'm not perfect. I've had some problems with addiction to prescription pain pills ever since I was hit and nearly killed in a car accident, but i've never killed anyone. I'm not a serial arsonist or rapist or child abuser. I've never pulled an armed robbery. I've only had to go to jail a few times over traffic violations, and I think its pretty sad that TED BUNDY got better treatment on death row then I got in Craighead county jail.

I know many would argue that I shouldn't have driven without insurance or whatever, and I agree I brought going to jail on myself, but nobody should be treated like I was treated. One homophobic guard in particular harassed me to no end. I'm a diabetic and finally lost my cool partly because I was angry, but also because when my blood sugar is all fouled up I tend to get angry....and begged for them to book me (i'd been waiting for 15 hours to be booked) so I could bond out or at least use the phone to have my insulin brought to me.....they responded by strapping me into a chair ...cussing me and calling me a faggot....i broke into sweats and began to feel as though I was going to faint...I asked for a glass of water several times and this guy....his last name is: "allison" would take big sips from his water cup right in front of me.

I have bruises all over my chest and arms from the way i was handled and I was not swinging at them or anything.....no excuse for them to use that kind of force.....I'm considering bringing a lawsuit......I realize that these guys in craighead county shouldn't expect that they are at the hilton, but they have rights too and someone is going to die from neglect and abuse out there. I hate to say it, but if I had to choose to leave my nieces or pets to be taken care of by someone....I'd feel safer if they were watched by the inmates then by one of those jailers.....They are just animals, with no humanity and I hope there is a special place in hell for "allison"

Cant get anyone to back you up when you go in a unit to break up a fight or whatever, everyone is afraid of being fired for doing something the wrong way. Everyone out here is afraid of being fired for doing something or not doing something. Stress is a mile high and getting worse. The Sheriff is just as bad if not worse.
Oh, STFU and get back to work Paul.

I am sure you did nothing but sit there and be a sweet little angel huh? Sounds like you are an ass and were treated as such. Politeness and respect go along way, which you have neither! They have cameras all over that place so my guess is we watch the video we will find out what little crybaby is lying about. I bet we find him yelling, beating on doors, disrespectful, and exactly why it took the folks at the jail so long to deal with him. My guess, is we can ask this guys mommy about what a good little boy he is and she will probably cringe. Do us a favor and keep your whining ass out of jail and you will have nothing to bitch about. Just a thought!

Yeah because you know me so well wtf....No I wasn't a sweet little angel after being called a faggot....I defended myself . I can't believe your going to side with a bunch of homophobes and bigots.....Your going to judge me...when I don't know you ...have never done anything to you...and you weren't even there....so it really doesn't matter what your guesses are or what you think...until you have the facts on something...you might want to shut the hell up. Politeness went no where ....I sat with my mouth shout for hours and hours until it became neccessary for me to speak up ....I guess you think I should have sat there and gone into a diabetic coma.

Hey Help,

He still works out there. I haven't spent much time in that jail ( i've had to go for two driving on suspended license tickets), but I recognize him from the other day. I don't know what your experience has been with him, but he was pretty nice to me and i've no trouble with any of the inmates and with most of the jailers, but that "allison" guy and one of the female jailers called me a faggot and treated me just awful. I learned on the cellblock when I related my story that I actually got it pretty easy...I was told that one guy waited for 2 days to get his insulin!! A friend of mine told me that his daughter had a seizure and busted her head up pretty good and nothing was done for her. My whole point in saying what I did was that we are all human beings and deserve to be treated as such. I know that some inmates behave like animals and if they are putting the jailer in harms way...the jailer has the right to do what they have to do, but I never raised a finger to anybody and was treated like a hardened criminal...worse....some hardened criminals are most likely treated with more dignity then I was.

If mr french is a friend of yours, he is still out there and you can prob find him on Facebook....I think he told me he was from up around hardy or something.

Hope this helps buddy,

take care

You sound like a complete asshole and I bet you work as a guard, huh? My daughter was beaten up in that jail and she begged the guards to protect her from these two girls and they just ignored her. My daughter ended up having to have plastic surgery because of what was done to her in that jail and it could have all been avoided if the guards would have taken her off the cellblock like she asked.

Well if you keep your ass out of jail, then problem solved huh? Exactly what was you in jail for anyhow? Bet it was either drugs or alcohol. I love it when people get in trouble, then blame someone else for their problems.

Thank you I am a asshole. And no I do not work at the jail but have several friends who do. Well tell your sweet innocent daughter who never does anything wrong, and the cops was probably setting her up was the reason she was in jail, to not steal, do drugs, and pay her fines so her ass can stay out of jail. You sound like a great parent as well, maybe you should keep your ideas on how to keep your daughter out of jail then get on here and bitch. Just a thought.
