i feel that the pike county jail should reconsider the way inmates are treated,and should give them better "living conditions"
have you ever seen the inside of their cells,or eaten any of their food?

To answer your question, have I ever been in Pike countys jail? No,
and hopefully I never will have to spend a night there. What I think is
it is not supposed to be the Hilton.
people are in there for punishment not to be rewarded. Lets don't forget it's not supposed to be a place they want to return to.

I don't think its fair that all prisoners get punished and locked down for one individuals actions. I look forward to hearing from my husband every night and since one offender got into an altercation with another I haven't heard from my husband in days

I was detained for a traffic violation, which I had proof in my car had been paid. Any how they took me there. I was put in a room that was about 33 degrees, there was no beds or toilet paper. I ask for theses things and was put in solitary confinement. It was colder in there than in the holding cell. I beat on the door for hours yelling at the guards. they would come after about an hour or so. I would ask for toilet paper and at least a blanket. after about a day and a half A woman came over a speaker and told me to wipe my ass with my hand. I said my taxes had paid for me to have toilet paper and and I got no reply. I ask for a lawyer and they told me no. After my pretrial I had a bond set at 1000.00 flat. With a court date 2 1/2 months out. I tried to tell they in a polite manner that this had been taken care of , they told me to shut my mouth or I would get 5 more days. The three days I was there, one day which was the day I went to my pretrial it was conveyed to me that if I some one there to vouch for me I would have been released, my family was there but was told nothing of my pretrial and also that that was no bond set. I was supposed to be able to use the phone after court to call some one to go my bail, but was not allowed to use the phone till that evening after my family had left. I was fed 2 sandwich's and 12oz's of fluid in 3 days. I am a vet and there are prisoners in Cuba that are treated more human.

When your stripped of all your dignity for a misdemeanor traffic volition can't wipe your ass or take a shower or eat properly or get a blanket your sleeping on a concrete floor thats filthy it's bout 33 degrees in the cell, it dont matter if your laying there bleeding to death the guard won't come , all night long you hear people screaming for being rapped you start to see the system needs a better standard of living, yes violent criminals and rejects of society deserve it . but not your every day person

Pike County really needs to treat there inmates better. I spent about four days in there jail after i had a wreak(DUI). I was hurt really bad and they would not let me even see a doctor or a nurse. I had to sleep on the cell floor and they wouldn't even give me a mat to lay on!

If you tried to house GOATS in that godforsaken place peta and the spca would shut it down and throw your ass in a federal pen somewhere,and no its not a Hilton hotel but basic human rights do apply to all humans...right?

Save your breath when talking to Dub,he uses the age-old knee-jerk response to any problem with the penal system, "Well they should'nt have broken the law"...maybe he"s right in that regard,but its all to obvious that he's never seen or smelled the third-rate,third world cesspool that is the Pike Co. jail...staph is rampant,menstruating women go for days until they get pads,Black Mold is everywhere,the ppl who operate it are just lazy, sorry and negligent..they need to clean the place up, else one day they may be living there themselves....

My sister is currently locked away for who know how long. Her court date will arrive shortly so I'm hopeful that she'll be released soon. Can the facility really be as bad as stated above?? Decent nutrician, warm bedding and a toilet are absolutely necessary. Who should be contacted to assure that conditions are improved immediately??:o)

If you want to get an accurate idea of what the Pike Co. jail is really like without actually being there, watch the movie "Midnight Express"(its about an American who gets jailed in a Turkish prison),while youre trying to eat unedible roadkill ,locked in a truck-stop public-restroom,with the guy in the next stall takin a crap the size of a pontiac....thats about the rosiest picture I can paint for ya.All you can do is get her outta there or hope she gets transported to Lincoln Co. or Addams Co. or ANYWHERE but Pike..they aint gonna change untill something bad happens and thier forced to...and I dont think thats very far off.

this is a damn shame the way people are treated in there but you have to look at this way people are put in jail as a punishment and i think it there little way to not tell the prisoners not to come back but they not allow to do that and most of the prisoners are in jail are innocent of some what. some one need to do something about they are treated there.

They killed my Brother by refusing him his Insulin.He was in just a few days ago for an old traffic ticket,that he had forgot about.
I have spoken with the Pike County D.A. and I can assure you,bad things are fixing to happen for the people who are responsible for my Brothers Death.I dont care if its the Sheriff or Warden or anyone else...ALL will be held accountable one way or another.I am also trying to get Fox News involved to bring in some much needed media attention.

They said he died of "natural causes",theres nothing "natural" about a 46-year old guy dying suddenly.I heard about it the morning it happened and it didnt surprise me.Im sorry to hear it,but if you scroll up a few posts I said almost 2 months ago something bad was gonna have to happen before anything changed,..well it happened. Dont waste your time with the D.A.,he and Mark Sheppard(the sherrif) are basically co-workers,thier kids go to the same schools,church,etc., What you need to do is contact Jack Ryan at the Enterprise-Journal(publisher@e nterprise-journal.com),its the newspaper in Mccomb,and demand an investigation, because I can see this being swept under the rug,this is the first Ive heard about the man being a diabetic. If Ryan doesnt help Call WDAM in Hattiesburg or WLBT in Jackson and tell all of them what you said here.Someone has to be brought in from outside Pike co. to investigate.Theres a good old boy system in play here thats allowed the jail to deteriorate to the point it has to begin with.And the D.A. here isnt going to investigate a friend and co-worker,so,Fox-News may be aiming too high here but definitely contact the local television news networks and local newspapers...I live here,i know whats going to happen if some attention isnt brought to this..this is certainly a case of negligence and someones gonna have to pay the piper....

my wife was in there,and they couldnt even get no pads for that time of the month.They also left them in there all day smeeling fecies,when a women shit on heself smelling that allday,and did nothing till that evening,how unsanity is that.The guards would look through a hole and watch them get necked and take a bath,something needs to be done about pike county jail.

Pike County Jail is bad, but it wasn't a complete nightmare for me... I would rather have been there than somewhere like Baton Rouge...

I was there for 4 days and had everything I needed. A bunk bed, a toilet, a blanket and 3 square meals a day... Granted, I never want to return, but it wasn't as bad as some places that I have seen on TV...

The worst thing that I experienced while there was waking up to a pregnant chick of another race, rubbing on my vagina... As soon as I woke, she just walked away laughing...
