It's interesting that while some of you believe inmates deserve to be treated poorly, others believe they should not. We all have to consider the human factor of incarceration (if there's any such thing) in that treatment stimulates certain behavior. If inmates are mistreated, society tends to the target of their ire once released. Our "Corrections" system sometimes come across as an oxymoron because in reality it punishes more than it corrects. This doesn't include the number of victims that are falsely accused and incarcerated. Some of us deserve less than the golden touch for misdeeds but basic human rights should not be denied under any condition.

Maybe next time your son will think twice before getting his sorry arse thrown in jail.
Don feel for him in the least.

Since you ignorant people feel that everybody is suspect, why won't you just kill yourself. Jail is surpose to rehabilitate people so that they can adapt in society not to turn them into animals so when they gain freedom they become wild animals. Say what you want about the inmates but understand you yourself could be one. Whether it's your first or thousandth time. What about all the innocent people that has been convicted for crimes they haven't committed and 20 years later tax payers has to pay for the mistake when they already paid for the trial. Be careful of your critical responses because you or your loved one could fall into those same issues.

Well I am a Former inmate from the Clayton county Jail and YE its true the conditions that we lived in were in-humane. As women we only got a chance to bathe once a days sometimes,there is mold in our showers,they feed u 2times a day and @5pm they give u a sack with 2 sandwiches in it an 1 cookie oh yea 1 orange!! I was pregnant when I was in there and one time they did a shake down, YES A SHAKE DOWN and decided to throw away my roomates pictures of her daughters and it was the only one she had then turned around and said Well I get to go home to my kids EVERYNIGHT & see my kids then proceeded to look my roomate in the face AS SHE RIPPED THE PICTURES OF HER DAUGHTER APART!! There were several Sergents there and There was one(Sgt.Gardener) who said to leave our stuff where it was,the correctional officer continued to proceed to rip the pics up. Then on top if that they took the food that we had just got for our dinner SACKS and trashed that too!! Like they didnt know we had just gotten that food!! They make u wear the same dirty clothes for 2wks and if they dnt fit when its time to get more cause they ran out of ur size they make u keep thedirty clothes that u already had or make u keep the clothes that dnt fit. I had an incident where Officer Davis(female) refused to open my cell door after the smell of BLEACH had lingered in my cell cause I ask the officer to close my cell door and she refused and I told her I was allergic to Bleach and she began to yell @ me I passed out she proceeded to call a nurse not a paramedic (remind you that I was pregnant) when the nurse(Nurse Peggy) got there she wved her hand in my face saying Oh Calm Down theres Nothing wrong with u!!! I wrote a grievence form on the officer NO ACTIONS WERE TAKEN!! I COULD HAVE DIED!!!! U know its funny cause Even when u tell them "WHEN I GET OUT IM GONNA CALL THE NEWS ON YALL THEY SAY THEY DNT CARE" One day the Officers had us Locked Down in our cells with OUT ANY WATER(I PROMISE) WE COULDNT EVEN USE THE BATHROOM IN OUR ROOMS CAUSE THE TOILETS WOULDNT FLUSH!! All of this was right before I was released on JULY 3rd,2010 they didnt even feed me befire I left and made me sit and wait for 2hrs to be released and they sent me to be released me 5-10 minutes before lunch. A ll I can say Is that ClaytonCounty Jail should be investigated by someone in higher authority than Sheriff Kimbrell cause he doesnt do his job either,My mom contacted him several times while I was in jail he never contacted her back thats why I want to SUE!! YES, WE WERE IN JAIL BE WE ARE STILL HUMANS EVEN DOGS @ THE POUND GET BATHS DAILY,WATER,DECENT MEALS,aND ETC... WE DESERVE THE SAMETHING IF NOT BETTER!! Thanks for ALL THE LISTENING EARS Oh yea one more things they cut the phones off on u if u tell anyone that isnt in jail whats going on or what they are or are Not DOING!!!

guess you've never thought of the people who are there that didn't do anything but stuck there until they figure out they made a mistake. Guess everyone that makes a mistake deserves to get treated poorly just wait one day it will happen to you

Your actually right again.
If you make a so called "mistake" you then get sent to "jail" A very bad place where you don't want to be, So, if you have any brains at all you will remember how bad it is and will not want to make that "mistake" again.

Lets not forget this SHERRIF was the same one indicted for stealing thousands of drugs and money from clayton county during his LAST period of rein... He runs his county jail like a boot camp when clearly its NOT he now requires every inmate to fold their tissue in a v shape when not in use and you cant get under your cover until after 11pm!!! not to mention when you post bond youre still being held for over 12 hours after they've taken your money!!! He has trained these officers to be ruthless when its not needed, i was just recently thrown in jail this past friday and my car impounded for no proof of insurance when i showed the officer my insurance papers and called my insurance company right in front of him. he still refused to just let me go or better yet write me a ticket!! i was headed to work it wasnt even 9am!!! not to mention i am an insurance agent in the state of Ga and out of all counties clayton county is definitely the WORST ever, keep in mind this county about two years ago LOST their academic accreditation because of bs in the schools and lack of properly teaching the students, instead teachers taking the easy way out cheating and falsifying test scores!! i totally agree theyre judicial system sucks, educational sytem sucks

Clayton County...you are full of Shit.... The law changed several years ago as to the requirement to carry an insurance card in your vehicle. Officers have dispatch run your plate through the DMV database which is updated daily. If you don't have valid insurance , then you get what you deserve.

<quoted text>First of all I have know many people in this jail.Do the crime do the time.If you get beat you wont want to go back now will you.Jail needs to scary if not its just a FREE vacation.I hope that Dominique Stacey and Joseph Dedeaux the two teens who killed my bestfriend is getting what they deserve in Jail there too! Go Victor Hill!!
I hope that those two are getting what they deserve in there also but thats why they have a seperate population for those certain people. The red team can stay on they ass all day 24/7 but, when officers or the red team just stir shit up or talk too you like you not shit, then thats a problem. Ive been there and all them fuckers do is starve you, kill you or either charge you too keep you in longer. Their whole operation is illegal. No rule book, no process to doing anything. Rules are made as days go by. So before anybody try to say this and that about the way Clayton County Jail is treating inmates, think what the hell you want too think or say what you want too say, because if you havent been a Clayton County Inmate or a Inmate period, you dont have shit too say. Clayton County Jail Red Team beat you for no reason, invade your privacy to stir shit up, officers never answer your questions, never inform you on anything, even do little things on purpose just too piss off inmates. You want respect, first you have to earn it. Not all inmates are criminals or bad. It was plenty people in there for mistaken Identites , traffic tickets , or got arrested for stupid shit. They arrest with no probable cause. I were recently released yesterday morning and the last time i were there, they have gotten more strict. And i was in there for a ticket. Seatbelt Violation and did a month for that. Really, say that's not illegal? No other charges or nothing

Exactly. V shape tissue, everything in the dorm with trustees, V shape. Now each hour has been moved back. Breakfeast at 3am, lunch at 11am then dinner at 4, and nothing else to eat then 3am. Then the trays never filled nor do the food be done nor good. Clayton County just the worst county to live in PERIOD. And clayton county jail is making the name for its county.
