I read a letter to the editor this week about how the jail would no longer allow religious material into their facility? I'm wondering how they can legally do this and is this a state wide thing or just Hardin County? Have they confiscated their Bibles??

They lost their right to freedom so as far as I'm concerned they should lose their rights to have anything else. Maybe not having these things while incarcerated will make them strive to stay out of jail And Mr. Doyle does not care about religious mail, which is what they cut out, he's just stirring up trouble. The inmates are not doing without anything that effects their quality of life. They do get medical attention, state mandated by the way. Hell if their on methadone state law requires the county to take them to the clinic every morning. They get 3 meals a day and some recreation time. Jail is not meant to be fun or have everything available as they would in the public. In fact they get plenty of opportunities that they would never take advantage of in the public because they are too busy working on their next incarceration. Make no mistake that Mr. letter to the editor is a repeat offender.

Now when you get a illegal mexican or a F**king Islamic terrorist you can refuse them qu'rans, prayer rugs and anything to facilitate practicing their religion.....cool beans

If they don't like the conditions in jail, then they need to stop stuff to get put in jail! It ain't rocket science. They better be glad I don't have any say in what goes on down there, they really would be complaining.

So exactly what does that mean? You can't talk about religious things in a letter or have religious programs introduced into the jail? After all they stopped it in schools so if you wanted to take a Bible down there, it wouldn't be allowed????Can you maybe explain what the policy is?

Sammy needs to implement Sheriff's Aprio's policies. We need a vacant field owned by the county, put up 12 foot high chain link fencing with razor wire on top and first 5 foot of the bottom ....then the county needs to buy a used circus tent some cots and blankets no pillows, have the prisoners dig latrines ditches then have city buy tanks to place in those latrines the type that can be pumped out just a hole in the floor. give them showers once every 3 days by having a gravity fed tank warmed or cooled by the weather give each prisoner 2 minutes under the shower..1 minute to get wet and lather up, one minute to wash off... Use this facility for the 11/29 prisoners....Use the county jail for short term holdings.... In the winter months issue insulated orange jump suits and let them exercise often to keep warm... This would clean Hardin county up real fast and in the long run save the county/city money.

Use tent city for all Hardin county inmates in the system. Then have the county rent lease bed/cell space out to other counties at a profit so that the tent city occupants do not cost the county or city one red cent. Then the city/county could used that money saved to build city/county parks for sports, hiking, biking trails..... etc give our children and teenagers something home some to do.

In your car and practice how religious activities were done in the time of the Romans...by mouth. If I were an atheist, and I'm not I do not want religious services going on in a secular facility paid for with the taxes of the people that live in the county or federal tax payers subsidies. Just like I do not want tax payer money to be used on lawful genocide (Abortions).

Until they serve their time they have lost all the rights that we non-law breaking US citizens, illegal aliens and law abiding legal immigrants have. They do have a right to appeal their sentencing, they do have the right to basic medical service, they do have a right to food (gruel), they do have the right to have a roof over their heads (Tent) they do have the right to serve their full term out before they are released. Anything else is a luxury (like running heated water).

Ran the county/city jail the way discussed above we would have a whole lot less crime in this county when these prisoners are released they will leave the county. When, state prisoners are released over at Clifton those ex-cons will keep right on moving out of our County. Big businesses will move into Hardin county because they would feel safer.

You know what..I understand how ppl feels about the ones that break the law and end up in jail over the choices they have made. I really do. But I will never understand why they would take a Bible or religious material away from them. Many ppl have changed their lives from being in jail. There are a few ppl that are not repeat offenders that end up on the wrong side of the law. Their are plenty of others breaking the law...but never got caught and probably never will. I know plenty of ppl that hit rock bottom the 1st time they were there and never had to go back...They are humans and humans make mistakes!!

And perhaps that explains why you are NOT the sheriff....LOL

The reason we have so many repeat offenders around here is because they enjoy their stay at Davidson Arms. If they would provide the same as Tent City, like poster If The Sheriff said, I think Davidson Arms Hotel would lose it's appeal.

As far as big businesses ever coming here, I don't think TPTB will ever allow that to happen.

When i quit drinking i quit landing in places like jail. They need to take a good look at what put them there. I do no sum good people that are changed people cuz jail was no place for them. There is a solution to that way of life though.

that criminal felons get a liberal break and the next time we the people have to protect our homes we face reckless homicide charges for protecting our property by shooting the dummy. Since, Obama says we are no longer a christian nation then it only stands to reason that our public institutions that receive local and federal tax dollars should be completely secular. Heck just seeing some of these people fail at phonetics on here when spelling how do you assume that they can read anything much less a comic book in jail.
