Let them have their fun, it's on in 2014 and I can't wait. They have heard rumors but nothing for sure yet and I know they are in fear. They wont be able to stop the might of right that will sweep that house clean and start over.

Justice, Integrity and Morals will return to the badge and you can take that to the bank.

Several more need it but I suppose we will wait until 2014 unless anything else gets uncovered in before then. Sounds like something may be brewing with ole Jack lol and it wouldn't be a surprise with anything I hear coming from there, especially the jail side.

The Longos had several involved in their circle so plenty more needs to be caught. I hope its true that Joe retired on medical but I feel like they probably forced him out, he wouldn't likely leave on his own accord. I heard Ferguson was let go due to the retired guy they roughed up and illegally seized his firearms after they forced their way into his home. I think that lawsuit is pending.

If all this corruption in the CCSD is for real then why does the county not report it to the appropriate state authorities and demand a transparent internal investigation? If true, terminate them and appoint a decent intemin Sherriff and officers that can serve until the next election. This action would solve the problem. It is taxpayers money funding their salaries. They are public servants elected to do a job in good faith of the citizens of Caldwell County. The citizen's of this county can demand this.

This is why Sheriffs should not be politicians. They should be hired, just like Police Chiefs, and fired for due cause.
We waste a phenomenal amount of money running elections for Sheriff, Register of Deeds, Clerk of Court etc. Then a new Sheriff gets elected and he wants to put his own "stamp" on the department. So then money gets wasted on new uniforms, different paint schemes on cars and the most ridiculous of all, firing employees/officers that didn't support him and hiring (sometimes incompetent) employees that did support him during the campaign. Total waste of taxpayer dollars.

Why would the county do that? The Republicans are the ruling party in Caldwell so doing that would make them look bad plus make the entire county look bad and we cant have that now can we. They want to make sure their party gets elected next time so cant allow any damaging info to get out even at the expense of the counties citizens, dont you know how politics work lol.

The Sheriff cant be fired so to speak, it takes a lot to remove a Sheriff as he is an elected official.

I do understand politics however, I do not agree with letting an elected official do exactly as they please. If the sherriff has responsibility then he also has accountability. The sherriff is accountable to the citizens of Caldwell county (regardless of political affilliation) for the actions and activities of his department. If enough complaints are voiced and a formal request for an internal investigation is made from the citizens of the county, the state will investigate the accusations. If a United States president can be removed from office then surely a county sherriff can also be removed.

i meant the jail needs to be cleaned out sorry! there is bad food being served very little quanities of food at that. and scabies, lice.etc young people going in and laying in there throwing up for days without medical care. the jail is nasty and if you are not one of mr day's favorite females on house arrest then you catch hell from him.however if you do his favors in which he was recently repremanded for your ok. it's no fair to have to feel like you have to do sexual favors in order to remain out on any bond conditions! and no im not one who just didnt get there way ive not been in jail. i have a friend who has family in there and they have been threatned that they cant even talk to family about the conditions of the jail by phone if they do they get there phone privelages taken.one warm meal a day 2 cold meals and slime on them at that. yes they are in mates but come on.does our sheriff eat this trash? no he dont. i will just be glad when 2014 gets here and changes can hopefully be made.our county needs a detox facility in our county and each inmate that is thrown into jail that is or has been in possession of any drug within 24 hrs of being incarserated should go through the detoxing program before being put up stairs to throw up on toilets floors sinks etc that other inmates have to use as well. if we can pay for new bmw suv's why cant caldwell county save a life by having a decent detoxing program in the jail or out side the jail. again i totaly understand they are inmates however they are federal inmates who are suppose to have 3 hot meals a day and a few more privelages due to the huge amt the feds pay caldwell to housethem. well they are treated no better than a state inmate. i have a grievance filed now so i cant discuss alot however this house arrest officer is being investigated by many many many females that he has alleged to have made favors for.

There are several reasons for there needing to be some changes made in the operation of the jail because number one we as taxpayers can't afford the Federal Government taking away the contract to house Federal inmates again. It has already happened before and without the Federal funding that comes with them being housed there the County Jail is nothing but a money pit that will only lead to higher county tax rates or the (more favorable to the commissioners) higher property valuations being assessed to us taxpayers. The second reason is that no matter whether you think that inmates should only get bread and water, sleep on the floor and be beaten silly everyday or not, there are laws on the books of not only this state but also at the Federal level that have to be complied with and we as taxpayers can not afford to just keep paying off the numerous lawsuits arising from the inhumane treatment of inmates. The cleaning needing to be done at the jail is about as simple as it gets to explain. If you will take time to look at the CCSD website you will find that there are several inmates who have been there over 1000 days and many who have been there over a year that have no bond or one set so high that it can't be met and every time one of them or any other inmate gets a staff/merca or any other infection we as taxpayers foot the bill for their treatment. It's really simple, running the jail by the right way and following the guidelines that have been set forth results in money being saved by the county.
