a simplr traffic violation may land you in washinton county dentention center but as a citizen I would not want to enter the system being sick for this may cost you your life as it did one individual recenently. A woman with family and children whom is motherless now due to a simple infection of the urinary track and washington county's finest neglect to get this woman treatment. it is said that other inmates cared for this woman and voiced their concerns over the womans health rising temper and lose of other bodily functions as the trained jailers did nothing to save this womans life. i as a citzen beleive everyone should do the time for their crime but should a traffic violation cost some one their life when mrders and drug dealers walk free. I think not and the lack of humanity in our jailers to let a woman lay to her death is a lack of training on the county's profession. Get real washington county and if this was my family i would seek justice and the persons lack of humanity whom was on duty should have to face such a fate they costed this poor woman. Do into others as you would have done into you and God will judge you long after the justice system fails.

Washington County is corrupt. All jails are. I still don't know what you are talking about. The beginning is a good place to start?

I know for a fact this is complete bullshit. Yes, there is some corruption in all jails, prisions, and well every single other place on earth. I think you're putting an angle in this story that is wrong, and I would like to know the womens name that supposably "died". And just be lucky you were in washington county jail because there are ALOT worse in the area and definantly in the nation. Some jails dont even care if you eat, they just shove the trays in and you have to get there before someone takes yours. Washinton county atleast makes sure everyone gets fed.

I'm throwing the BS flag lets review what it would take for a "simple" traffic violation to land you in jail. 1 get stopped for violation get a ticket with a court date 30-60 days away you decide not to pay the fine or show for your court date. 2. Missing court date you are reported for the failure to DOT who begins steps to suspend liscence. You get mailed a certified letter and at this point can still go see DA and try to remedy the situation. 3 DL is suspended. 4 You get stopped for another violation having a suspended DL for FTA could give officer cause to haul you in then but most likely will get cut a citation for that offense. 5 spend a few months getting your case reset while you are "trying" to get DL fixed. 6 Either get DL fixed and possible reduced charge, plead in sessions court or roll it on to grand jury and criminal court. 7. Have conviction for driving on suspended first offense and 2 FTAs for traffic offenses on record. 8 get stopped for another violation go to jail.

Ok, I am speaking from experience....wash co detention ctr took me in and treated me horribly. i am in the process of filing police misconduct and excessive force. my charges were dropped and expunged. im taking this all the way to the dept of justice. i had never been in trouble in my life. I get abused by police because they arrest me for pd and i am begging every breath for an alcohol or drug test to prove my innocence. TOTALLY WRONG!!!!!

LOL, you don't know much about the law do you genius? We don't have to give sobriety tests when someone is arrested for public intoxication. Good luck on pissing up that tree!

You are just pissed because you got caught. Furthermore, if you go all the back to the beginning and had followed the rules to start with you probably wouldn't currently be in your situation. This world is not always fair and yes I'm sure there is corruption in some places but as previously stated: if you follow the rules, generally speaking, you'll be ok......

I got dragged by my hair to a bathroom and ordered to strip naked in order to have a half gallon of liquid delouser ( aka pesticide) dumped on my naked body. They are supposed to hand you a small medicine cup full and have you dump it on yourself. I was then commanded to stand there for an hour and not to turn on the shower or i would be tased. The jail guard was mad at me because I corrected her when she was fingerprinting me. The computer screen said right index and she was doing my middle finger and I spoke up and said she was doing it wrong. She told me to shut up and I called her a corrupt podunk pretty girl. She was my age or younger ( young 20's) with lots of make up. That's a big mistake never piss off a jail guard. So that's the treatment I got. Anyways don't expect to be treated like a saint but don't excuse abuse. I also witnessed a pregnant woman be denied medical care for a serious bout of bronchitis and she said she was starving. They feed you 1400 calories and pregnant women get an extra container if SKIM milk that's it. It's really very corrupt. But you know I guess a baby who has a criminal mother deserves to be mistreated. Ha get real bunch of disgusting. SICKOS. God will punish all of you.

I wish I knew the jail guards name. She is a brunette and wears a pony tail. She is thin and wears a lot of make up and is very pretty. It's a shame she has a job like that she should be doing something that helps society not perpetuates hate hurt and crime. I have a friend who used to be a jail guard there he told some disturbing stories about that place. they voted to make certain budget cuts in order to give people pay raises. Guess what they cut? Caloric intake for the inmates. They cut food portions by 20%. Ha. Anyways it's funny because if you are rich and get in trouble usually you can afford to get out of it and never go back. For poor people it seems to be a trap. They can never make enough money to pay their fines so they always end up back. I don't know what else to say other than reforms need to be made to rehabilitate these people not treat them like shit and get off on it. That's sick. My great grandfather was a Sheriff and a fair one at that. He always gave the criminal time to turn themselves in before searching for them. He also always treated the prisoners fairly. Times have changed. People no longer have God behind their actions or decisions. Sorry but whoever wants to refute any of the comments I have made better save it for your maker when you die. That's where true justice is done.

The only thing i can say is the part about cutting the inmate calorie intake is complete and utter BS whoever told you that isnt telling you the truth Deb. The inmates calorie intake and such is regulated by OSHA and the federal government. the county comm gets to decide ALOT raises and where money goes. But nothing about that sort of thing

OK Deb, what kind of meds are you on? The former guard who told you these things is either a liar or a figment of your imagination. The State regulates the diet and caloric intake.,no one can get a raise from taking food from inmates. That is simply absurd. I am refuting what you are saying and I guess when we meet our maker we will see.

It has come to my attention that the following pseudo names are in fact those of Lt Gregg and LT Graybeal along with a few full time officers! Whatever, OMG, Former Craig Supporter, Former Mudslinger, among a few others!! If you have been dismayed by their reply then go vote Ford and I bet Ford will put them to work!! I bet they sure want have time to worry with this during the day!!! Let's get WCSO cleaned up!!!
