The jail is old and out dated. Jails cost money and so do staff members. If you want things to improve then be prepared to cough up some money.

Personally I think the jail needs a new jailer, several staff members replaced and to be updated.Way to much goes on in the jai!! My brother just got out and the stuff he was talking about really needs to be stopped. I think this jailer has had his time and it is time for someone new who is ready to run the jail like it should be.

What do you all think should be done and how should the people in charge go about getting it done? Everyone knows its overcrowded but how should it get paid for if they build a new one and where should it get built?

The jail is overcrowded and run down. It's cost plenty of money to build a new one. I agree with a couple of the comments as far as needing a new jailer. Gooch doesn't belong there anymore. His time shouldve been up before he started. The man has horrible people skills. He let's certain inmates run my place of employment. We have no control over prisoners. Gooch gets a few of the guards to follow his very questionable leadership skills and hides things that should be brought to the attention of the court systems. As an elected official of Lincoln County, Gooch is a very poor role model. I do know of several incidents that have happened that should have resulted in punishments for inmates but Gooch let's those slide. his only concern is that he doesn't look bad. As I spoke of a good role model, he shouldn't support a prom party for underage children, not to mention he was supplying alcohol.

There are many more options out there, we as a community can have a new jailer, as well as a new employer for myself and my fellow co-workers. If we want improvement, we have to look elsewhere than David Gooch, the history speaks for itself. In this case, we don't want history to repeat itself.

eddie hasnt been to work in months he might be a great guy but if he doesnt ome to work then why would he be a great candidate for jailer i think bruce needs to be the jailer or fitzy!!! lmao yea right they all need to hit the road!!! someone besides gooch though what about robin jones??

Somerset, KY

#17 Nov 30, 2009
Fitz does not need to hit the road....he is a good guy. Robin Jones? he has the personality of a dial tone. forget that. Rob Wilson is thinking about it I believe, and he would be good.

I'll tell you what.I have been to jail a shitload of times and I would rather be in lincoln co.jail than any.Sure it's old as dirt,but it sure does offer a lot of privacy for the inmates,and I think Gooch is pretty cool from my encounters with him.

Ok x-inmate, here's my point of view on things, believe it or not, I have common sense. You have stated that you have been locked up plenty of times and that Gooch is cool.

The people of Lincoln County will agree with me, a person is locked up for a reason. Gooch is supposed to make you not like jail, don't get me wrong, he's supposed to treat people with respect, which he doesn't. He's supposed to be professional, which he isn't. With the statements that you have made shows me that Gooch isn't doing his job correctly. He treats the inmates with more respect than his employees.

All in all Mr. x-imate I would like to thankyou for your comments. You too have proven why Gooch should not be the jailer of Lincoln County!

I think most people who are in jail deserve to be there and I don't really care how bad they are treated. We shouldn't cater to criminals.
