I've heard horror stories about the regional jails in the area. They seem to me that they are not very well regulated. Undue and harsh punishment is against everything I beleive in...My word dosen't count I'm just me...but some of you big wigs need to step up and check this out. Everyone deserves to be treated with some dignity...but they're just felons they cant vote so ....who cares? I do!!!!!! Fix this no one should have to live some of these stories that I have heard.

Don't know about Abingdon, but NRV is horrible. I know a couple of people who work there and they said it's the worst regional jail around.

I agree. I've never been in any legal trouble but I've seen people in the wrong place at the wrong time and they get taken there until their parents can make it to post bail.

When i was a teen I picked up a close friend that I hadn't seen in a while and we spent the day together. Little did I know he began smoking weed in between the last time I saw him and while we were at the lake he pulled out a bag and a pipe and lit up. I took him straight back home and haven't spoke to him since. The point is, if i had been pulled over for a broken light or anything and they found weed in my car i would be hauled to jail just the same as the one who was smoking it. It's not something I would have known by looking at him so it's not like i made a bad judgment call in spending time with him.

The way I see it you do the crime then do the time. Jail is no a place to go to have fun. If some unlawful thing was done against you then you would want them in the jail. I have heard Abingdon is not that bad of a jail. Are we to reward them for doing bad or punish them for it.

I too have horror stories about the jail. I believe that the point of jail is to restrict them, and it not supposed to be enjoyable, its a punishment. Yet, I have heard stories of people on medications, for diabetes, and blood pressure, that had to wait till the next day to recieve the medication due to there being no one there on the weekend to give them out. That is outrageous. One of the stories I heard, was a man got weekends in jail, an older man that was diabetic, he got weekednds due to a first offence dui, he didnt fuss about it, he went and did his time, he was the one that was left for a weekend with out his medication.

what more do they want in jail?? they commit a crime and get 3 hots and a cot, free cable, phone priv. that the other people has to pay for and more drugs in there then out on the street, not to mention no bills to pay! Hell they have it better than most people out of jail, and they want to cry...well boo hoo don't do anything wrong and keep your butt out of trouble and you don't have to worry about it... What should we do put a wal-mart in there with them or a movie theater?? yea let someone kill your family member or rape your sister or something to that nature and then give them all the nice things in life and see if you don't stir up some smelly sh**!!!! so lets cry just a little for the people in jail that did do something wrong and maybe they don't get the bedtime they want and have to complain!!

I sooooo agree with you just me. Everyone wants to complain until something happens to them. Jail is a terrible place until they think that someone who deserves it is in there, then it is too good for that person.

I agree with you both, the only thing I that is a reasonable complaint is if they do not recieve proper medication. That is wrong, even if they are a criminal. But as far as the rest goes, why should they have anything extra, that is the whole point of jail. It would be like putting your kid in time out, and then giving them candy and toys, so they didnt feel upset.

You sound as if the victums of most of these inmates had been givin the choice to be a victum. You liberals keep crying and
feeling sorry for these people that keep going back to jail, and
continue to blame everyone else. This liberal goverment gives
out enough free stuff, money, prescription drugs, free medical
care, next it will be free beer and parties at the jail.
