For the record, when I was assualted in jail, I was assaulted by a CO and handcuffed and chained to 4 other guys at the time.
Q: Why was I in jail ?
A. For failure to pay a fine on ONE traffic ticket (no right turn on red).
I thought you would only get your license suspended.

No offense but I don't hear anyone complaining about the way the straight people are treated over there. I guess you have all forgotten the large number of assaults that were committed against straight people. Being gay shouldn't give you special treatment being human should
When someone is singled out, discriminated against, and battered because they are gay it IS a human rights issue.

<quoted text>. No offense but that still doesn't mean you should get preferential treatment while your there. You get locked up where you have lots of people there to pass your time with and don't tell me it doesn't happen because it damn sure does. The straight girls over there aren't locked up with their boyfriends while they are there, but gay girlfriends are locked up together all the time. Why should you get to be with your partner just because your gay, but the straight women are locked away from their loved ones. I'm sorry but I think that gay men should be housed with a gay woman and vice versa. Next you'll be demanding that gay intercourse be taught in sex Ed.
It's okay to be segregated if your life or health are in jeopardy for whatever reason.

Just a curious question. I moved to KY from Chicago over a year ago. AFter a year of watching the news, reading papers, it seems like the "authorities" are really rough on the people in KY. I read about people being thrown in jail for the dumbest reasons.

The Poster Man Of 1000 Socks is a Troll that was ran out of the Pikeville Ky forum. If you do not believe me, go to the forum and look for the following names:
LMAO - London KY
Patrick Whitaker, The Legend Himself, and many many other names. He has had so many posts removed over the last few months due to bashing other people, posting pictures and names of people on the site, and other stuff. WATCH HIM and DO NOT let him take over your forum. Ban together and report him to the MODS if he starts his crap like he did in Pikeville as well as the Jenkins KY forum. He is a troll, and nothing but a troll.

OFF TOPIC -
And many of you all may recall back when I was Rev. Jim Jones or Mofofiasco too. Sorry but I will warn you all now that I have quite a fool's parade of sad, weak Trolls like Watch Out there that are so obsessed with me, that have allowed merely my words alone to hurt and traumatize them so badly that all they can do is follow me around whining and crying. Oh well, it is what it is and they are what they are : Sad and Obsessed. Please now, carry on the original subject / issue. Thank you.
Finally found Mr. Patrick Whitaker i know him and we have o have a looong talk, you will know me in time.... remember chatting with black female " via topix e-mail option? The time has come see u around!

I'am a gay male,and obey the law. so I want go to jail, cause I know if i did something like this would take place. it is so crazy, how they let other's do this. If you did sue i would move out of this town, cause you would be a BIG TIRGET lmfao. or you get a homofob cop riding your ass, pulling you over every time your out and he see you! But if worse came to worse someone would go down, when or while I was in, they would pay no matter what i would have to go thro.
