Hello Sheriff Matthews,
I'm wondering if you know what's going on at Kershaw Correctional Institution.
I think your Warden needs help with keeping an eye on her officers.
They seem to be running the place and not her.
Please if you could, tell me why some inmates are being held in lock up for made up reasons?
Example, there is an inmate in lock up because one of the officer works has a personal vendetta. The man was not convicted of something the officer feels he should have been.
This officer has the Warden believing that the inmate has a history of robbing other inmates but that is a lie! He's trying to get back at him.!
Sir, this inmate has never been in Karshaw before, these no history of such.
Please look into this issue.
I will not stop, I will start calling the mayors office if I have to.
I have reached out to the Warden several times and each time the person who answers the phone says she's not available. The last time I called, it was on a Thursday. I was told she, the warden would be out until the following monday. That Monday when I called, she was in a meeting, and that I would be receiving a call back from her. That was two months ago, I'm still waiting for her call back...:-(
I look forward to hearing from soon on this issue.
I would like to Thank You in advance....
Warden of Kershaw

The reason that the person is in lock-up is because they are an inmate. Inmates do not have very many rights. The reason that you have not heard back from anybody is because there is very little concern with an inmate who feels they are being "mistreated." One thing that you can do is, encourage your inmate "friend" to follow the law and the rules. This way he does not find himself in prison. I am certain that your comment is appreciated but do not expect anyone to really care too much about this. It sounds like you have become an annoyance more than anything. Perhaps this is why your concerns have been ignored.
