The Sheriff was on tv a while back and said that the Lawrence County Jail was not filled with people because the cells are pink. The counties around Lawrence are full. Does the Sheriff really think that the pink cells are keeping people from doing crimes. Talk to people and read the paper the crimes are there, the are not being arrested. The Highway Patrol just today busted a large burglary and theft ring, alot of which happened in Lawrence. Why is the Lawrence County Sheriff not solving these crimes? Lawrence County Sheriff GET OFF YOUR ASS!!!

It's hard to believe that in this day and age that Americans treat their prisoners poorly. It's not the role of the jailer to impose more punishment than what the court has determined. And it's certainly not his role to starve prisoners. It seems that your American jailers are a relic from a past era. Thank God this nonsense does not happen in Australia.

So now the dirtbags get to pick their decor? And menu? They have air conditioning and heat, 3 meals a day and better health care than 95% of American citizens. One question, if it's so horrible why do most of them spend their whole lives in and out of jail, some 30, 40, times or more. Yeah. Real rough.

So if Lawrence County Jail is so bad, why do people keep committing crimes and creating situations that result in them spending more time in jail??? If you do your research, Lawrence County Jail is by far not the worst in the US! Take a look at Sheriff Joe in Maricopa County and try that one on for size, it makes Lawrence County look like a Bed and Breakfast!

Personally, those who have committed crimes and are locked up should not live a better quality of life then I do working an honest job at 40+ hours a week and "doing the right thing."

If someone doesn't like the accommodations of the jail, then maybe they should look at the circumstances that resulted in them being in jail and see what they can do differently next time. It's a simple cause and effect...Personally, I know that I don't like speeding tickets and that they suck, so by looking at what caused me to spend hard earned money and not liking it, I slow my rear end down and keep myself out of that situation.....

I'm positive most people won't agree with my statement or thoughts, but come on. As kids we quickly learn how to get what we want and how to stay out of trouble....why can't that carry over into adulthood???

You make way too much sense for a liberal to understand.

This jail has probably already been looked into. If you did not like the food or uniform or color of your cell be smart and don't go back. Plus if they have been looked into there were cleared cause there still operating. If you don't like it give the sheriff a bigger budget. Your sheriff In Lawrence county is one good sheriff. One some counties should look up to. Vote delay if you want a winner.

If that kind of treatment was given only once to an Australian prisoner in an Australian jail the jailer would be jailed and the governor of the state forced to resign for having it happen on his watch. Things have come along way for prisoners in Australia since the 1700's. Things which apparently still exist in dumbass Missouri USA

An Observer...It is obvious that you are passionate about your "cause." Lawrence County and the Aurora Police infamously coerced a "confession" out of Johnny Wilson, who spent 9 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. They took advantage of his mental disability and proclaimed his guilt even after another man confessed. Of course there is much more to the story, but the truth remains, small town law does what it pleases. As far as the conditions in the jail, I am split between if you don't want to endure them, then stay out of jail AND inhumane treatment is not acceptable regardless of the circumstances. I would advise however, an observer, if you want people to take you or your cause seriously, that you refrain from the juvenile name calling, etc. As an activist who represents those who are unjustly treated, I know that we can invalidate even the most sincere cause by becoming what it is we are fighting against. I would like to know more about your concerns.

Questioned and empathized by a people never made a victim by a criminal it seems...

Those criminals are having the same thing for lunch that I have. The difference between us? I'm paying for BOTH of us. All he or she had to do is damage to another in order to get three meals and a bed to sleep in with hot and cold running water and never having to worry about how to pay the electric bill or the propane bill in the winter. Where I work two jobs and clock over 70+ hours a week to get my bologna sandwich and oatmeal.

If you think for one minute that I should feel sorry for people currently in jail because of crimes they committed you have wasted your minute. If they want to be productive members of society then they are welcome to do so at any point and time and are WELCOME to do so. Currently all they are doing is draining tax dollars that could go to improve our children's lives or the neighborhoods in which they live.

If they don't like their oatmeal then maybe they should donate it to The Kitchen or some other local charity organization and put their whining skills towards something worthwhile...like parole!
