Never been to jail hopefully never will. However I have had friends and family there who have complained there is no air in the summer. Seeing as how every summer gets hotter and dryer I do believe this is an issue that needs addressed before somebody even staff has a heat stroke. Not sure if this is false but if it is not please take this into consideration our tax money pays enough for people to be in jail at least take another step towards prevention if at all possible. Thank you for your time and God Bless all who puts their life on the line daily to protect us.

Yea, we should make sure all those dope heads in the jail are comfy.
If ya can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen.
The officers can get to air, I'm sure they are ok.

not everybody in there are dope heads not everyone is bad. Some are wrongly accused some have unpaid fines. Some have 1 drink and are over the legal limit barely. Some owe medical bills and are held on a bench warrant. Obviously you know noone who has screwed up just a little. No one person is perfect and it's the jail who will be in trouble if there is a heat stroke. I'm not just looking out for the "dope heads". Some people are so heartless. I was being polite. You know most people turn to drugs because they are not emotionally stable to handle reality and they get addicted then it becomes an illness. People are raped, beaten, never loved, bounced around from home to home or witness murders, parents getting beat, other children being shot. Not saying its right to turn to drugs I have never done dope and I never will but everybody deals with things differently. People with chronic painful illness get addicted to pain pills. It's just life. Does not mean they should be persecuted for all their shortcomings.
love you

The purpose of jail is to punish those who break the law. Those who make bad choices have to realize there are consequences for bad behavior. Security there does not allow for open windows obviously but they do have heating and cooling capabilities. It might not be a comfy 68* but the A/C does work. Don't let some jailbird work on your sympathies. Trust me the ACLU and others would be in there in a heartbeat if we stopped babying the inmates.

Thats is exactly what it means, if you are addicted to drugs, and cant break the cycle, you need to be put somewhere to get help, it usually starts in jail.
Being raped, beaten and never loved ect.. is no reason to break the law, the law will tell you that.
We need to toughen up as a whole in the society, they still have chain gangs in the South.

Never said it justifies breaking the law. Simply said that's where it usually starts and some people cope differently. Simply put just because somebody falls in that catergory does not make them bad people. Its so easy to point the finger when you have not been in those situations. Yes there are cobsquences for our actions yet the justice system is still flawed. Lets give a child molester a slap on the hand because he took someones whole childhood away. That time can never be given back. Give him what a year or two in jail while first offenders for Meth get 3-5 for manufacturing ? Meth is bad no doubt about it but not all people who fell into drugs have hurt others like a rapist or an abuser. Most people who hurt others never change people can get off drugs people who are sick enough to rape others abuse children or kill usually do not change. It can happen but not likely. Do I believe they have an illness too? Absolutely you are not born a rapist. However will 1 yr in jail turn that person around...not likely. Is addiction an illness...yes it is there are no babies chilling in the nursery hitting a crack pipe yet they are worse people than rapists??? I'm confused.

I never said there shouldn't be consequences. I never said they should kick of their jail flip flops and feel at home either. I am sorry if I was told something that was untrue of the AC I do believe I put that if its true in my post and I was not only concerned about the inmates either. Inmates, jailers...whatever whomever I'm concerned about people period. Not labels, not wrong doings, PEOPLE in general.

Snuggles, the legal system is screwed up so bad its unbelievable, they do just slap child molesters on the wrists.
Do you relize how much revenue the county brings in by arresting drugies, and such?its a bundle!
They dont get the same kind of revenue from child molesters, they slap thier wrist, maybe a little time in jail, maybe not. They need to start hitting them in the pocket, just like the people arrested for drugs, and alcohol, they may think twice about commiting the crime.
There is drug, and alcohol fees out the wazoo!....classes they have to pay for, ect...
A convicted child molester, should not only be jailed, but should have to pay top dollar for thier crime, I say kill the bastards, but thier not going to do that.

Its called being humane. Its what seperates us from animals. Also if you like it better in the south then go south. Its messed up everywhere. What's wrong is wrong no justifying but there needs to be stricter laws for worse convictions than drugs. I'm kicking a dead horse because it will never change but this site is for opinions and I have expressed my concerns honestly.

I agree completely. As far as a child molester goes I wish we made them pay the ultimate price too. Some say that would be too much satisfaction then they wouldn't have to live with what they did...hello people they don't feel guilty. Sorry if I got poopy about the south. Didn't think people were getting my point that its everywhere not just here.

The South is not the issue, I too have just voiced my opinion, good or bad, and there are "people" on this planet that should not be treated like humans, child molesters are among them.

There are brand new babies in NICU fighting a craving for a substance they know nothing about. Isn't that a heinous crime to give a tiny child a lifelong addiction problem?
You're right, sexual predators and molesters don't pay a high enough penalty. That is the fault of the males who sit in our legislative houses and who have been elected by all of us. It's time to change those laws.

You are so right, I know of a girl in TH that will give birth in Feb. to a baby that will probably be addicted, I hear that she shoots up meth, and has since conception, not only will this poor baby have withdrawls, but may also be mentally, or psychically challenged...oh well...the Mom wont have to pay for a thing she has done to this child, we will, cause Im sure she will be able to get medicaid, and some form of disability check for the kid.

Oh I know children get born addicted because of their parent and I agree its everytime hideous my point was they don't choose to sit around and do drugs. They still didn't do the drug their parent did. Yes that makes that parent a horrible mother my point is not all people who do drugs are bad some have just lost their way. I don't disagree with anything you have said I just think its horrible when people assume just because someone is in jail they are bad. We have all done bad things in life legal or not just some of us didn't get caught. Nobody is perfect. Yes mothers should have to do hard time for having babies like that harsher than just losing custody which is usually only temporary. They should not only lose their child but should go to jail for child endangerment, for attempted murder, if the child dies they should be charged for manslaughter. Once again this will never change either.

Funny, thousands of inmates in Arizona live in TENTS in the desert heat all year and they do just fine. Vigo inmates have it just fine!

They are in Jail it shouldn't be a pleasant experience. Every County should have a Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He has won six consecutive terms. I wonder why?

I had no idea. That is horrible!!! Had I known that or the inmates I for one can say I would not have complained as much. Hopefully something will be done there.
