KGS,
Yes thatís me.
I see that someone has gotten a little angry about the comments I made about the Clayton County Detention Center, ops!!!!!! Iím Sorry, no; really Iím not because it is all true and sometimes you should trust what people have to say; even a so call criminalÖÖ.
The fact of the matter is Iím an inmate her along with others whom deserve to be treated like a human being regards of their crime. You are right about one thing, neither they nor you put us here; then they or you should decide how we should be treated while here. You say I committed a crime, this is why Iím here, then how do you know that this type of inhuman treatment will not cause one to commit another crime once released. I believe this is why so many brothers end up coming back, because they have not been rehabilitated; but humiliated while incarcerated and just canít cope with society. I think Iím a smart and intelligent Human Being, whom has made bad choices, but Iím not a fool, I have learned from my mistakes; I WILL NOT COME BACK HERE once released. When I speak about this place, I speak for the ones whom are here, ones whom have left here, ones whom have come back here, and the ones whom have never been here, donít come here. Make better choices, because you will be prejudge as a monster and mistreated, regardless of your crime; petty, violent, or non violent. Enough of all the liberal stuff, letís get back to the reason why Iím here.

I know a lot of enforcement officals in clayton. They are doing what they can to make it a better place. The judical system is the problem. They seem to have a big ego in putting people in jail & keeping them there. I'm guessing money & control is the real reason behind most of this.
The correctional officers in clayton county jail need to do there job the inmates are on 20 hr lockdown and 23hrs on saturdays because they dont want to there job... i went and visited my fiance today and the officer was asleep in the tower...if they could just wake up and think about what it might feel like to be cagged like ananimal they might let the inmates out for more than four hours a day ... what are we paying them for to lock our loved ones up and throw away the key !!!

im a 17 year old female. i got put in jail and charged as an adult bc my friend's 42yr old mom used my cell phone to do illegal shit and i didnt know what was going on! Just bc someone gets put in jail doesnt mean they did it. i thought america was innocent until proven guilty? NO! its guilty til proven innocent. fuck all you people who think just bc someone is in jail means they deserve to die or get put in the ground. you dont know the situation or them. what if it was your daughter, or sister, or brother, or relative in there for something so small that they didnt even do? im sure you'd be bitching too. in my town, people have been arrested and thrown in jail for a cracked windshield. yes. i kid you not. thats how ridiculous it is here. so shut the fuck up and grow up. everyone is human. we ALL make mistakes. no one is perfect, and you do mess up alot in your lifetime. some of you are just lucky enough not to get caught.

and i was locked down 24 hours of the day. we didnt get to go outside, or anything. i stayed in one 6 by 15 cell with 4 other people. the toilet leaked also. so half the cell would get water in it and we'd have to mop. when we would ask for a mop, sometimes we didnt even get one. the guards thought it was funny. when they would turn the phone on for us to use, a couple of them would sit there and wait til you started to talk, and turn the phone off on you and laugh. it costs 2.49 to connect and 99 cents for every minute. im sure if it was your relative calling you on collect using your money just to get disconnected right away you would get upset too.

they're suppose to take your belt and any other object from you when they first put you in the holding cell. the co that checked me in purposally didnt take my belt in hopes i'd try to do something to myself with it. since i have never been in jail before, i didnt know this at the time that they were suppose to. that night i got woke up in the middle of the night getting screamed at and saying i was gonna get charged with "contraband" for having my belt still and then took it from me. i told the co that i didnt know we werent suppose to have it and that the other co didnt take it from me or say anything about it. well that next day i got in trouble for of still having my belt bc that co denied knowing i had it on. wtf? the fucker frisked me overboard, and groped my grotch completely. he is a male. i am a 17yr old female. he copped one to many feels. he completely grabbed my crotch 5 times while he frisked me.

and once again, i didnt even do anything! i was being charged as an adult for something a friend's mom did on my phone that i had no idea was going on.

Oh, and also your tax dollars are hard at work with all the training that is going on...
you are a fucking joke, dude, and I believe you know it. feeding people to attack dogs? What bizarre, crazy fantasy world do you live in? Not everybody deserves the treatment they are dishing out up there at that jail, and then you come out of left field with some generic stupidity like "California, Land of the Whackos". Have you ever even been to California? Hell, have you ever been west of Montgomery? Do you even read? What rubbish.

I just got a call from Clayton co jail. My man's brother used his name and got his liscense suspended! He is hard working and pays his bills! He cant call anyone to inform them he's in jail because you have to start a 50.00 acct to get a call!(He tried to call but it wouldn't go through)

That's crazy! I was going to wait till a.m. to see what gives....but after hearing all this! I am on my way to bail him RIGHT NOW!!!!

Jail is not prison - "INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!" Ever hear of a crooked cop? Our area has quite a few - murder and child molestation are a few of their crimes! These are the type of men guarding my loved one. GET A CLUE!

If you are in jail, how are you able to use a computer? It sure Doesn't sound as bad as you try to make it sound ! Besides, YOU put your own self in there, right?? I don't know what you are in there for, but obviously you must have done something to be in there. If you do the crime you must pay the time!!!! Don't feel sorry for any of you not one bit! Maybe when you get out you can act like a responsible adult?? Ya think?
It's comments like this and others that I have read that are really frightening me. You guys have got to get some empathy for people. I'm tried of the old cop out being used "you put yourself there" so why should you care right? WRONG!!!! You also need to use your head. There are NO computers in any jail or prison that I know of, so, the person whose posted the comment had someone on the outside with a computer post it. We are all taught that what ever bad we do in life there is a punishment but when u get into dogging people out because they did wrong that's problem for me. I don't want people in jail or prison getting mistreated. I don't want them to come home mad and kill my family. That's the ponit u and others are missing. How is making a person be in a ceil for 18 hours a day helping society? Some of you can't even handle working in an office for 8 hours a day so how can you think it's O.K to lock someone up for 18 hours? We would get mad at someone if they treated a dog or a cat like that but it's O.K to treated someone in jail or prison like that. How is no programs in jail or prison that really rehabilate inmates REALLY helping socity? How is putting people in jail helping our society? All these so-called "tough on crime" laws and politicians have not help society to me, I think things are worst.
This is Crazy

My fiance was arrested a few months ago for driving on a suspended license. He got probation for that. He missed ONE appointment with his PO because he was working. He even called the PO and thought he had worked it out with her. But apparently they issued a warrant for his arrest, and this past weekend (Saturday afternoon at about 5pm) they came to our home and took him to jail. He cannot be bailed out. He has to stay in there until his hearing on Friday, at which point he may or may not be able to get out. All of this for a suspended license?! That is INSANE to me. I've heard of people who robbed a grocery store and did less time. He has NEVER been in trouble before. He's not a thug or junkie. He's a hardworking, middle class family man.
I'm praying that conditions have improved since some of these posts were written, but I'm afraid they haven't. I'm also pretty pissed off that our tax dollars are being used to lock up people for traffic violations. RIDICULOUS.

I spoke with someone at the jail today, he said clayton cty locks up lots of people for stupid stuff including not wearing your seatbelt. He said that is a 50 dollar ticket but 10000 dollars to bond out. I am pretty sure they do have computers in the library.

Mail no there is a joke. We slept in tents in 120 degree heat in the day and 50 degress at night. Then we had to do our job on top of that. So get off your pitty potty and grow up!
so untrue, my son just did his 2nd tour, he got mail, a shower every night, ate 3 times a day, played his video games, and got on his computer, he said this what you just wrote is a bunch of bull shit!! you must be lying about being in Iraq, since you dont know anything about it!! grow up!!

Sounds like you're all in support of f ag, h omo rapists that need to be locked up.

Well, if you like them so much get yourself thrown in jail with them.
Just leave me out of your prison rape fantasy.

If you don't like jail don't be a lowlife.
