You just go ahead and nitpick all you want but you won't find a more honest sheriff than Mike.
He is going to do what is in the best interest of the whole county not just what you think is important.
You are wayyy too smart for that remark. Quite surprising coming from you, if you are the REAL truth. You seem to always care for the underdog, ie, the homeless, despaired man who became a victim of someone who doesn't know anything about running anything! Letting a person hang has nothing to do with an election. It does, however, have a lot to do with poor policies and practices. The kin will come out of the woodwork on this one. Shannon is also the biggest liar I have ever met and he hardly has the county's best interest at heart. He is indeed, the WORST SHERIFF this county has ever known, and he f*cks up by the numbers.

That was not the real truth who wrote that post and yes a inmate who tried suicide by hanging, I beleive he didn't die if so my prayers with his family, the sherrif seems to need more employees or get rid of the heartless gaurd who let this guy try this, I must agree with you on there seems to be something wrong here. I know the real truth would agree

Glad to have someone intelligent to talk to. The poor fellow did die after all. Mike claims he is "saving money" by not training his jailers and cops,(he dropped training four years ago) by having only one jailer instead of two on every shift, by not fixing the leaking roof that ruined the security cameras, by not installing more cameras where they are badly needed, ESPECIALLY with only one jailer on duty and so on. The jailers do care, but their hands are tied because Mike is breaking policies and rules previously set in place for the safety of all. He will blame the jailer on duty and fire him just as he has done before. He is always looking for a scapegoat instead of understanding the fact that no matter what happens there, the Sheriff has sole responsibility.

I can only imagine the molds and other conditions, caused by the rain leaking in, that must be going on in the jail. This is bound to cause health problems with the prisoners and the staff! I feel the health department needs to do a thorough inspection on the place and bring it back up to code.

Nitpick???! The county has lost hundreds of thousands of dollars already because of him and stands to lose millions more! He also just allowed a person to hang himself!!! Nitpick???! What the heck does it take to get it through your thick skull that he ain't for the job of sheriffing! Stop wasting money Mike. You already blew all the grants that used to be.
yeah right

Yeah, Mike. You already lost $88,000 in monies that belonged to the deputies. That's also $88,000 that didn't go into our economy here!

now that is sad to hear about, a inmate in a county jail thought his life wasn't good enough to live. Very sad story. Can't someone report this county jail to the State?

THIS IS PRETTY SAD!! WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE FOR THE PEOPLE OF HOWELL COUNTY TO WAKE UP... KEEP IN MIND JAMES ADAMS WHICH WAS A DEPUTY WITH HOWELL COUNTY TOOK MONEY FROM EVIDENCE AND SPENT TIME IN PRISON A VERY MINIMUM AMOUNT TOO. 2 DEPUTIES IN OREGON COUNTY HAS TAKEN MONEY AND ITEMS FROM EVIDENCE AND GETTING TO SPEND TIME IN PRISON. WHERE IS A SHERIFF THAT MISPLACED 23,470.00 GOING EXCEPT HOME AT NIGHT AND BACK IN HIS OFFICE WHICH THE PEOPLE OF HOWELL COUNTY ARE PAYING HIM TO DO. WE PUT A PERSON IN HIS POSITION TO SERVE AND PROTECT THE PEOPLE AND WHAT HAVE WE GOTTEN. NOW WE HAVE 2 MAYBE 3 PEOPLE HURT AND DEAD FROM HIS JAIL. WHEN IS HE GOING TO PUT PEOPLE IN THAT JAIL THAT TO DO THEIR JOBS AND NOT LET PEOPLE KEEP DOING HARM TOO THEMSELVES TO DEATH. COUNTY COMISSIONERS NEED TO STEP IN AS WELL AS JAIL STANDARDS WHO HAS CALLED THEM. I THINK IT IS TIME THAT WE GET PEOPLE BACK IN THE FRAME OF MIND THAT THEY HAVE A JOB TOO DO AND IT IS NOT SIT UP FRONT AND HAVE A TITLE. THAT IS NOT AN 8-5 JOB AND 95% OF THE EMPLOYEES INCLUDING THE SHERIFF GO HOME BY 5 OR 6 AND NEVER SHOW THEIR FACES UNTIL THE NEXT MORNING. GET SOME QUALIFIED PEOPLE IN THOSE JOBS AND YOU WILL NOT HAVE TOO WORRY WHO WHAT WHERE AND WHEN.

This time it is to the tune of $23,470.00, PLUS attorney fees, PLUS $100.00 per day until paid, starting October 09, 2012, which by then, he will be in Contempt of Court. Who is going to end up paying this? Us, the taxpayers, that's who! How ignorant can WE be to actually vote him in for a second term! Didn't we learn ANYTHING from the last four years??

Jefferson city needs to be notified also a protest to County Comissioners needs to wake them all up.____-----JAIL STANDARDS..... someone is not doing their jobs or there would not have been 3 inmates in the last 2 months died or tried to kill themselves while in jail. Also there is someone not doing their jobs on jail checks which is required...

Sad thing is folks,Lady Justice was murdered a long time ago by the very ones that were sworn to uphold and protect her!Now it's all about cutting deals and who they carry around in thier back pocket,it's that way everywhere "worst plains" is no exception!You don't have to be good at your job,just do as your told.As for someone investigating the goings on around there....good luck with that one,nobody cares what the residents think and to get an official to report anything well I hardly think they are willing to" cut their own nose off to spite their own faces" as the old saying goes!

Well guess you thieving, drug dealing, child molesting scum buckets had best stay out of jail if you don't like the guest accommodations there. And if staff are not happy working their then they can quit, no one is forcing them to work there. As for families of these scum bag inmates, had they been better parents then maybe there kids would not have gone to jail in the first place.

That's what is wrong with this country if they would start hanging criminals from gallows right in front of the jail there would not his crime. We do not need all these long drawn out trials and appeals.

Another thing all these homosexuals and cross dressers need to be dealt with the same way.
