I have a family member in Clayton County Jail. She has sores all over her body from the clothes. For a week they were not given soap or toothpaste. They feed them slop. They don't give women with their menses any pads. She told me today the jail has broke her down. She was wrong for what she did but no one deserves to be malnourished and sick. They charge $5 for an aspirin. Where does on go or what can be done to help the inmates in Clayton?
there is a state and federal agency called the jail standerds div. that will investigate compalints on really bad jails. I am sure they have inspected clayton county more than once, however its the good ole boy network that let them slide, i think a inspection by the feds is due and soon!

UHMMMM, excuse me, but if you are in jail, no matter the charges, you only have the absolute basic of civil rights. If the inmates don't "appreciate" the way they are being treated, then maybe this could serve as a lesson to them to straighten up and not get sent back to jail. I say that the sheriff is doing a good job of treating them like that and the inmates don't have the right to complain. Why must people try to pitty the criminals?
well who lied to you also? You don't even grasp the very basic idea of incarceration !!!First thing einstein THE CONCEPT OF JAIL OR PRISON IS THAT PEOPLE GO TO JAIL OR PRISON [AS] PUNISHMENT, NOT [FOR]PUNISHMENT.I know that may be a bit deep for you but hell anybody who supports victor hill probably does not have the mental aptitude to understand it!what about the people who ARE innocent you think they deserve the degradation and humiliation as well?if you do then your evil crooked one way motherf----er you and hill should be able to hold hands when you and him go to jail!!

Ummm... ever heard of innocent until proven guilty? There are plenty of people in jails who have not been proven guilty of anything yet.

This is horrible that there are people actually advocating these criminals. What about our troops in Iraq??? I can tell you from experience that the food is not that great and the sleeping quarters are probably worse than in jail. Some troops do not even get to shower for days. Yet, people are actually listening to this crap. This is a waste of tax dollars and government time.
Hey, if someone dies or is raped by a corrections officer, ONLY then should an investigation proceed.
This is depressing...these are criminals. "In-humane"....my ass (for lack of better terminology).
AMEN!

okay after reading many statements and comments I have to say something...first off let me say that Victor hill is victor hill...I was there in clayco when he first came back into office and he had the officers running around like crazy jut to make sure the inmates did everything to please him and if he found one thing wrong he slung everyones boxes(which holds both our personal items and food that we bought)we had to make our beds a certain way and yes when he came into our doorms we had to face the wall with our hands clasped ogether behind our back looking at the floor, I was glad when I left but let me also tell you I have been to many other jails but clayco is by far the worst...every jail is bad but not like this one....I saw one person die while I was there, I was in contact with pepper spray(while I was pregnant)and I remember that I was in a holing cell for hours at a time b4 anyone came when I called for them...they are not fast to respond so if you go there don't plan on getting sick...
