“I hope this will let other people know that they need to realize the consequences of engaging in this type of behavior”

Seven people, including three inmates, have been charged with trying to smuggle marijuana and pain medication into the Pike County jail, Kentucky State Police said yesterday.

During telephone conversations from the jail, inmates conspired with friends and family members on the outside to create what they thought was the perfect plan: The outsiders would purchase the drugs, tightly package them in small balloons and then plant them outside the jail under a wooden shelf, said state police Detective Kevin Newsome.

This is just a drop in the bucket compared to how many drugs and the quantity that is NOT seized.

they have been needing to do this for a long time. Clean that jail up. I have never been to the jail, but I have heard that drugs are easier to get there than outside.

My husband is in there and he says there not much in there. Maybe a joint or something. But many of them are drug addicts. I think they need a drug treatment program. People don't understand TREATMENT is the key to slowing down alot of crime. Most crimes are because they want more drugs. I know that shouldn't be any drugs in there but some people act as though there is cocaine, pcp, acid, and hard core drugs like that. I guess it depends on who you talk to depending on what you hear. I mean come on they can't even have cigs. anymore. Some people classify that as a drug too.

Fu--ck Tolliver.
Fu--ck Rodney Scott.
Fu--ck Duck
Fu--ck Mark, I think he'd LIKE it too MUCH
Fu--ck Joe Hall the short fat, queer.
Fu--ck Slusher
Fu--ck the rest of the employees of that sorry establishment for treating people less than
human.
If you guys wanted to be COPS, ya should've went through what everyone else has to, but instead you thrive on belittling the people who can't reciprocate the actions. You're cowards!
After seeing how that place is ran, it's no wonder people don't get any rehabilitation from such an experience. It would emotionally cripple anyone who has probably spent ANY considerable amount of time there.
No, I'm not an inmate nor have I ever been an inmate. I've merely had the displeasure of MEETING these people regularly due to my job.
this is sad

Perhaps a new jailer will help?

This doesn't surprise me. A couple of years ago I was going to Hardees in town and saw what appeared to be a work detail van full of female inmates. The driver was parked in the parking lot behind the Blue Goose. Men kept coming up to the van and a female inmate would get out and go "talk" with them for a few minutes and then go back to the van. I saw this happen twice in the short time that I was there. The driver of the van never got out of the van. I have no idea what they were doing; but it seemed odd since I didn't think that inmates were supposed to have contact with others when they were out.

A new jailer couldn't hurt.

Well we all knew there was some reason all of these people love spending time there and get arrest after arrest after arrest. You say repeat offenders and why when they talk bad about jail like they hate it and all that but constantly get arrested. I bet within a 6 month period of time the names start to repeat themselves gotta be something that keeps drawing them back either drugs, dykes or queer.
