Any one that has been confined to either Butler County Jail, or to the Ohio County detention center and was denied any of their civil rights can file a complaint at: Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General Civil Rights and Civil Liberties 950 Pennsylvania Ave, N. W. Room 4706 Washington, DC 20530 I am hoping especially any woman who was taken to the Ohio County detention center in Hartford and not given their medications, medical treatment, clean living conditions file a complaint with the department of Justice. Please do so and stop the abuse at local jails. Google jail civil rights and find out what you were denied, then file a complaint! It is time that these jailers be held responsible for their crimes.

If you go to jail..you shouldn't get treated good..you are there for a reason, a bad reason!Are people really that retarded..jail isn't suppose to be some sort of vacation or easy ride! If you do something to go to jail then deal with it..you did the crime now pay! Maybe next time, you will think twice before you doing something stupid and get yourself back in jail!

Just because someone commits a crime and is put in jail, does that mean they are entitled to be mistreated? Besides not every one in jail has been convicted yet.

Go ahead and put on here just how you were "denied medical treatment" or "not given your meds." I personally know that you ARE given all your meds that are approved (which means the ones that are legally your rx)! And medical tx is available at OC b/c they have a nurse on staff and she calls BC to let them know of the problem. But NO you're not going to go get medical tx for a "toothache" or some BS---b/c guess who pays for it??? WE DO!!!! The ones in BC who AREN'T in JAIL! Do yourself a favor and stay out of jail, then you won't have anything to worry about, huh??

You are right up to a point, the county is responsible for a inmates medical care up to $2000, after that the state takes over the cost of a inmates medical bills. To go on though. There is a constitution and a bill of rights that govern the laws of our great land. Those that break the laws are given penalties to pay if found guilty of breaking the laws with anything from fines to jail time. So that is the punishment. When a facility (Like jail) takes on the burden of keeping prisoners, convicted or not, they also have the responsibility of following the laws that govern the treatment of those incarcerated. When these people break the these laws they are just as accountable for that as I would be if I committed a crime. The Federal government is the branch of justice that enforces these laws, and the penalties for breaking these laws can range from fines to prison time. There are many a jailer and jail employ in jail right now for breaking these laws.

As far as paying. I am a taxpayer also, and have been for many a year. It gets very aggravating to have my taxes to go towards some county employee that I find out is not doing the job that they have been payed to do! Doing so not only is stealing from us, the tax payer, but will eventually wind up costing all of us in the county more money down the road. Yes, there is insurance to pay for legal suits against the county, but we pay those premiums, and any award beyond that falls directly on to us. So, I would gather that it would be more cost effective to do the job according to the state and federal regulations that apply, instead of trying shortcuts, or just blatenly disregarding those regulations and laws. It will save us all some money.

Now to discern between punishment and cruelty and neglect. When someone is in jail they lose many of their rights. Mainly the right to come and go as they please. There is limited ability to do anything for ones self. That has been taken from them and taken over by the jail. They tell you when to get up, when to eat, who and when you can make calls, who and who you can not see, and the list goes on. That is the punishment for not obeying the rules of society. Besides it keeps society safe from the law breakers. The line between the lose of these privileges and what constitutes abuse, neglect, or just plain criminal treatment of those confined to jail can be a murky one, so laws were established to make this line more visible. Jails must provide sufficient food, clothing, bedding, religious freedom (to a point), insure the safety of a prisoner, and any and all necessary medical care. This is determined by what any reasonable person would consider needed. Tooth ache, maybe not to needy, A visible abscess, leaking infection from it, might be medically feasible to call a nurse or doctor. A visible abscess, leaking infection, high fever, malaise, medically needy, and time to treat. First maybe an aspirin, second maybe a doctor visit or call by a nurse, some antibiotic, 50 dollars maybe. Wait till the third scenario, we may be looking at that 2000 dollar mark because it wasn't treated when it was a 50 dollar problem. Lets use common sense. Then now we have to worry about not only the cost of treatment but the threat of a lawsuit. And those who work at the jail being prosecuted for denying a person their civil rights. Don't think it cant be done, Google Hopkins County Jail Strip Search Lawsuit and see how much that attorney won. Not counting the monentary cost of defending the county.

Apparently you are the retarded one. Not everyone in jail has been convicted of or pled guilty to anything. Sometimes people set in jail, and then it turns out that they were innocent.-- I don't know anything about Butler and Ohio counties jail's. But I have done quite a bit of time in Grayson, Warren, Hardin, and Jefferson County. And as far as medical treatment goes, sometimes even if it is your medicine they won't give it to you. Yes this is normally narcotics. But sometimes the people that really need their medicine don't get it, and also sometimes these people arn't in on drug charges. One lady had some type of bone disease, and she couldn't have her medication. Another lady broke her leg, and got tylenol. This lady also had to sleep on the floor, it was hard on her to get up and down because it hurt to put that much weight on her leg. So yeah, it's not supposed to be a vacation, but you shouldn't have to suffer. Most people in county jail's arn't baby killers.

I'm the retarded one? Ive never been in jail, so apparently im the smart one, dumbass. You want people to feel sorry for you, because you have been in jail and its hard? Yeah ok, learn your damn lesson and you wouldn't keep going back to jail. Your right most people in jail aren't baby killers, they are crack heads or thieves. It is noones fault but YOURS because you are or have been in jail..you choose that path now live with it and stop whining about it! Make your life better, if you want to stay out of jail..your the only one who can..if you don't help yourself, then noone else should help you!
Oh Really

Thank God we have laws that do govern the treatment of prisoners. I will tell you we have some dandy ones on here voicing their opinions. I don't recall any one saying that jail ought to be fun. What has been said is that every one confined to jail has rights, just as those who are not in jail, and when those rights are taken from any one they have the right to file a complaint. So, who ever knows of or has experianced abuse in a jail file a complaint with the goverment! The address has been posted for you. Look up the laws and educate your self.

I can't figure out why all these pea sized brains think that those in jail never pay taxes. Lifers maybe. I would guess every one that is able pays their share. Considering fines, and what a person has to pay for their incarceration when they get out, I'm not to sure it is the free ride you claim. Besides, as far as i care, if the state wants to keep them, let them pay for it. We are so far in debt now (goverment) who cares.

Excatly !!! Thank god there a few people on here with some sense. Being in jail cost alot of money, in some places its like $20 a day.(If your a county inmate) And the state pays the jail to hold state inmates. And if your a state inmate and the jail has a work release program, guess what? You get to go and and work for the county. You get paid $1.25 a day, by the STATE. Have any idea how much money that saves the county. ALOT. And the jails also make money off of commissary, calling cards, and collect calls. So how in the heck, are the jails not profiting off the inmates. Go to the doctor, dentist, you get billed for that. If your county, and your really, really bad sick, they will either let you go or transfer you to Pee-Wee which is the 'medical' womens prision.
