I am curious. To those of you in the Pike and Floyd county areas that have family or friends in the Pike County jail, do you think the prisoners are being treated with humanity?

Ok, now with all of that out of the way. I recently had a friend to be placed in the Pike County jail. He is guilty, there is no question about that. He did not rob anyone or commit a serious crime but, he did violate the law and should be punished.

Since he has been there, he has slept on the floor 3 nights, has been forced to wash out his underpants in the sink instead of getting new ones, has been denied visitation from his wife and children (without reason mind you. He has been the good little inmate). His wife was forbidden to bring him clean clothes, socks, or toiletries.

His family can't afford his bail, which was set higher than most murderers and drug dealers, nor can they afford house arrest. Which might I add, is obviously intended only for the rich. Nearly $200.00 for initial set up then up to $70.00 per week until his trial date.

Here is my concern/question.

Should inmates be denied basic items such as underwear and socks from their families?

Should an inmate ever be forced to sleep on the floor?

Should their be a type of program for non-violent, non-repat offenders that enables them to still work while incarcerated?

Keep in mind we are not talking about a violent criminal here. He was put in jail for a minor parole violation. He was on parole for something he did nearly 8 years ago. He is clean and has not done drugs or drank in over 3 years.

Here is my next concern.

His children who both attend a local grade school were humiliated when their father's name was broadcast on the radio. The newsman for this local radio station exaggerated the situation as if their dad was some hardened criminal. The children were teased and have been made miserable ever since.

I understand that what my friend did was wrong. I will say again, he deserves to be in jail. But, should his innocent family suffer for what he has done? Which brings me to the next question for discussion.

Even though an arrest is public record, should the family of an incarcerated individual have the right to stop such announcements and newspaper police blotters from appearing in order to save the family humiliation?

How would you suggest the family's rights be defined in such a situation? How much time should they have to petition the announcements before they are made public? What circumstances should allow them to petition such a thing?

I am eager to hear what other people from my area think about these things I have mentioned. Please, no opinion here is wrong. I am merely curious to know what others think.

innoncent,until proven guilty. was not mr keen,innoncent until proven guilty. this thing called the law says that he was. but yet the two troopers murdered him,an unarmed man,said to have maybe robbed, and walked away,scott free.and probablly,will be commended for their action.
innoncent until proven guilty? why are we not treated,in such a manor. power over the people.try getting the two troopers to,admit that they,over reacted to mr keen,when they deceided to murder him. just another case,of lock them up throw away the keys,or murder them if you deceide to,if they dont get on the ground fast enough,to please you.
that is until,it personally involves us or maybe one of our loved ones,than it is another story,right. no law should be passed that has not been put befor the citizens,and approved,and even than the people,should retain the right to recall,or abolish any law. as long as we elect,appoint,or hire a hand full of idiots to,make our laws because we do not want to be involved,these problems will be there. our systen,badly needs changing. you must become involved,befo you become personally,affected.

YOUR RIGHT ROY INNICENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY THAT GOES FOR THE OFFICERS TOO. YOU TRIED TO CONVICT THEM BEFORE THERE DAY IN COURT AND THEY WERE NOT GUILTY. NO INDICTMENT, THERE IS STILL SOME JUSTICE IN THIS COUNTRY.

WELL ROY YOU ARE FINALLY RIGHT I AM A ATTORNEY BUT I DON'T TAKE MONEY FROM OFFICERS I WORK FOR THEM FREE BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN TOO MANY OFFICERS RAILROADED IN THE COURT SYSTEM. IF A OFFICER GETS IN TROULBLE I WILL NOT CHARGE HIM A DIME AND NOT TO BRAG ON MYSELF BUT I HAVE NEVER LOST A CASE YET INVOLVING A OFFICER. I TAKE CARE OF OUR OFFICERS AND THEY KNOW I WILL BE THERE FOR THEM.

My dad was placed in the Pike County Jail for not even a good reason. He was driving his fourwheeler on property he was allowed to be on; & they placed him under arrest for driving his fourwheeler on the main road. They nearly broke his wrist, damaged his fourwheeler, took his medication (which was for a tooth) & didn't return it. He was also forced to sleep on the floor in the cold without any blankets.
What Pike Co.'s officers are are mostly young little boys who have just stepped out of the academy and are looking to make a name for themselves, and most of the older officers are the "know it alls."
There is no justice served in Pike Co., Ky!

well i belive that is what the constitution says but it rarely happens.now i have to say most of the arrest are people who are caught in the act or under the influence of something.but i belive your question is really about the treatment of prisoners once they are placed in jail.I do agree with you that all PEOPLE should be treated as human beings.the jail is over crowded so if somone dosen't sleep on the floor,they would have to transport you to another facility,which they are not going to do.how ever if a person's guilt or innocents is in question,then there has to be a judgement call.mostly it is about the money.the court sets the bail,and then you must make it.if a person is a repeat offender,then he will be treated diffrently.but back to the treatment.all people until proven guilty,should be given the benifit of the doubt,that is why the justice statue is tilted to one side a little more,and she is blindfolded.wonder why there isn't one in pikeville.oh well any way,there should be one bed for ever person.if not then shorten someones sentence that is not of a serious nature and let them out,so room can be made for the newly incarserated.that way know body would be on the floor.now alot of people feel this is ok to make the prisioners sleep on the floor thinking they will never be in there.but if by chance they find themselfs in there their view about this practice
will change as the night comes and they began to chill from the cold concret floor which is now their bed.see alot of folks have a view which is not rational,until it falls into their livingroom.everybody deserves to be treated humanly.now he we go agin as to interputation of humanly.some belive your stay in the PCDC should be as uncomfortable as possable,unless its them.some people belive you should have no bail,unless its them.some people belive you are guilty or you wouldn't be there in the first place,unless its them.some people belive just your being there means you are guilty,unless its them.there was a man who told me if he was called for jury duty he would vote guilty for every body that he had to decide their case and however they were treated in jail they brought on themselfs.I ask him what if one of his two daughters was arrested on a charge that he knew,knew for sure they were not guilty of,because they were with the family at the time what ever happened and was mistreated in jail.the police,the jailer and the jury had his attitude and said screw the injustice,vote guilty on everybody,and gave one of your daughters 5 years.he stoped me and said well that wouldn't be fair.i said well isn't that you attitude towards this.what is the diffrence.he said well they are MY daughters.I thought how typical.

What is a crime not of a serious nature? How many cherries do you think are in jail on any given day? What do you think most of the inmates are in jail for? Jaywalking. Almost all of them are repeat offenders. A judge is supposed to shorten someones sentence. You talk all this crap about people viewing their family differently. What if someone was DUI and your family or broke into your house and they were released because there were not enough beds? You obviously do not know about the people who are residing in jail. Please dont post that on cold case files that you seen someone had a conviction overturned on DNA evidence. We are not talking about people on death row. We are talking about your average pike county dopehead theif in jail.

As I was saying in other threads I was once a wild youth. I now have kids and stay on the straight and narrow. I have been arrested twice in my life and both times were for Public Intoxicatiom. I am not proud of it though I write it off as a learning experience. Both times I was guilty, one time the arresting trooper was a good friend I grew up with and worked with him when we were teens. I hold no grudge because he was only doing his job. I went completely easy both times and gave the troopers no problems. I spent the night both times in the drunk tank. Neither time was I completely out of it so I can remember the whole affair. I was treated very decent. Yes I did have to sleep on a mat on the floor. It was a little cool in the room but not freezing. The turnkeys treated me fairly and so did the arresting officer's. The food was not great but it was edible even though I had a hangover and only drank the coffee. I have always treated the law officers with respect and been given respect in return. The turn keys the same way. If you act like a human you will be treated like one! Now I never seen the turn keys treat anyone unfair in my visit and they had a few really un-cooperative subjects. I seen one put in on the same night being booked the same time as me that did everything in his power to break restraint, spit at them, and be just as a big of a nuisance as they could. The turn keys showed a lot more restraint than I could have shown I will tell you that! So I have been there and it was no picnic, but it wasn't a night in hell either!

LOl I dont disagree with you on humane treatment. I dont think anyone should be tortured. I am all for work release programs. As far as hanging no because some people do make mistakes and sometimes even learn from it. I would hate for someone who can be a good citizen be hanged.

Before I was falsely arrested-2002-2005

I heard from a friends husband that his clients were not receiving their prescribed medicine at the Pike County Jail. And even when that was brought up to Judge Friend, nothing happened. And it wasn't an issue with one client- It was a complaint from all his clients.

Then I was falsely arrested. 2006

The Floyd County Jail was nasty. There was blood splatters on the wall, not to mention the urine, feces, and I am pretty semen on the floor of the cell. I had to sit in the floor in the middle of it in my suit. I would rather have sit in the middle of a cow or pig lot in their crap- because at least then I wouldn't have been exposed to hepatitis like I was in the cell.

Then I was transported at 1:30 a.m. by KSP. The Pike County Sheriffs department refused to transport me because they knew it was an illegal arrest. Trooper Petry took me to the empty community college parking lot.

Then magically he remembered where the Pike County Jail was without any help from the radio or me AFTER I told him the day before I dropped off my documents with the FBI and the Eastern District Prosecutor-

I was put in solitary because I have a law degree as suggested by the person in charge that night.

Then day shift came on board. Day shift at the Jail turned on the air conditioning full blast in my cell. The blanket I was given was full of holes. After I don't know how many hours after my teeth were chattering so hard that I thought they were going to chip. I didn't know at the time, but I was in hypothermia.

I asked for another blanket. I was laughed at and ridiculed by the jails staff. They were enjoying torturing me.

It doesn't matter whether a person is innocent or guilty; there are certain minimal standards of human decency which need to be enforced by the elected jailer.

It's tough being a jail employee- no doubt. But the day shift which were enjoying torturing me- there is no excuse for that.

you know its funny,but i agree with alot of the things you say.I think it is a shame that our jails are running over.they are that conjested.I wasn't trying to pounce,or attack you.was only making a point that could be a possable solution to the over population of the jail system.I think our jails should be empty,meaning that people should live clean,decient,and normal lifes and if they did this wouldn't be put in jail to start with.but most don't do this,and do cry foul.but if you are put in jail,you still should be treated human,not animalistic.I belive the system sometimes gets it wrong.maybe somebody at the wrong place at the wrong time,or is somewhere and gets scared,and it is interupeted as guilt.now i don't want to go to jail for any reason,that is why i do everything in my power to not break the law.and i would hate to go to jail,and have to wait until they figure out what is what.the system dosen't get in a hurry.and it can be a bad experience,for an innocent person to have to indure.now i have been in jail one time in my life.i had got out of the army,and we had a little celibration,just beer and a couple bottles of jack,and bacardie rum.I simply passed out on some steps at an abandon building in jenkins.i woke up in whitsburg jail,didn't know where i was.finally monday morning,i was put in on friday night,but monday morning the judge,ask me some questions,i told him the truth,he checked my record from pike county,fined me 60 dollars and sent me on my way.I'll be the first to say i was guilty,i plead guilty,i did not lie.it could have been worse.but the judge said he understood this was not an everday thing for me,and that he remembered his relese from the army,and had done a similar thing.he was quite understanding,serious but understanding.and my point is maybe it was a much simpler time then.i really don't understand most people today.what is it with all these pilss they all think they have to have.i just don't understand it.but any way,people still need to be treated humanely.

I am for law and order but we do not need to have third world country jails. With that being said our jails do not need to be four star resorts. I also think that probation can be a good thing for certain individuals.

Then magically he remembered where the Pike County Jail was without any help from the radio or me AFTER I told him the day before I dropped off my documents with the FBI and the Eastern District Prosecutor-
I was put in solitary because I have a law degree as suggested by the person in charge that night.
Then day shift came on board. Day shift at the Jail turned on the air conditioning full blast in my cell. The blanket I was given was full of holes. After I don't know how many hours after my teeth were chattering so hard that I thought they were going to chip. I didn't know at the time, but I was in hypothermia.
I asked for another blanket. I was laughed at and ridiculed by the jails staff. They were enjoying torturing me.
It doesn't matter whether a person is innocent or guilty; there are certain minimal standards of human decency which need to be enforced by the elected jailer.
It's tough being a jail employee- no doubt. But the day shift which were enjoying torturing me- there is no excuse for that.
If the cop took you to an empty parking lot you are forgetting to tell people its on the same street as the jail. You are leading people onto to believe you were in some isolated area ten miles out of the way.
