since the sheriffs are so busy investigating the hangings they must have forgot to charge the paramedic from middletown fire department. he got by with givin jail drugs to women inmates for sexual favors while working his jail job. go figure.

THis is the fourth hanging in one year!!! shouldn't someone investigate this jail and it's employees? All four were hung with bed sheets, shouldn't they change this? Does no one care b/c they were inmates? These people were someone's son, brother, uncle, father!!They were put into these people's care, they aren't protecting them. Either from someone else or from themselves!!!

This should definitely be investigated. If one of my friends or relatives was taken to this jail for any reason, i would get a good lawyer and get them moved. For fear of something suspicious happening.

Wow, why don't we concentrate on not getting in jail in the first place. I understand that people make mistakes, but don't try and then say well he made a mistake and now it is our responsibility to make sure he is taken care of. Sure we have to provide some level of protection, but if they hang themselves so be it

I have a friend that is a psychologist for one of the local counties.(not this one) We have had many discussions on the mental state of inmates. It is a serious problem and mega dollars are spent to train the guards and jail staff to keep them from offing themselves. But it happens and without readable signs.

It is an easy thing to toss stones at the cops but the underlying cause for them being there is conduct outside societies rules.

A large number are there because they cannot get mental health care.

Cops are lazy slobs and don't check on these guys often enough. Too busy eating donuts.

BUCKFUSH, I give you this one. A lot of them are there for mental health issues. A person would have to be off plumb to do drugs, rob, steal, kill, rape, drive drunk.
In your perfect world we would be issued a shrink at birth. Cops would all be monuments of fitness, endowed with the patience of Job and the intellect of a Hawking or Einstein. Donuts would be outlawed.
Now would you please check yourself in to a clinic and help some help. You can find one at 112 E Liberty St, Cincinnati. Or you could join a support group - http://www.mentalhealthassn.org/support.asp They have a nice menu of available support groups. Surely, you can find something close to your problem.

Yeah, and some of them are being held for trial. Innocent until proven guilty. Maybe you'll be locked in a cage some day and be innocent.

Could and does happen. So what does that have to do with sheets and hanging yourself? Certainly if I was locked up and innocent my thoughts would not be of offing myself but rather of getting out.

Until this country realizes that the drug problem in this country is one of miseducation, stigma, myths about treatment, and a MEDICAL one rather than a LEGAL one, then the revolving door is going to keep spinning. The definition or insanity is "continuing the same "problem solving" and expecting different results. This is EXACTLY what has been going on for the past 30+ with this nation's "Drug War". And with the growing number of these anti-methadone groups that tell heart breaking stories full of partial truths and who have not sat down with world renowned addiction experts and members of the National Institute of Health, who stated that "methadone is without a doubt, the GOLD STANDARD when it comes to opiate addiction treatment", we are going to get nowhere. They would NEVER admit that for every "methadone related death" (which in 90% of the cases, methadone is taken with one or more other narcotic substances..........in other words, if a person takes his legally prescribed dose of methadone, and then goes out and takes a huge amount of anti-anxiety medicines.....usually Xanax, Valium, etc. and dies from an OD, still the majority of the coroners or medical examiners call these "methadone related deaths". Another thing they would never admit is that MAT (Medicinal Assisted Treatment) has saved at least 10 times the lives that OD's have taken, have saved so many families, cut crime drastically, nearly stopped blood to blood disease, etc., etc., etc. These groups such as HARMD and MAMA would be better served to learn the true facts concerning MAT and methadone as it is used as one of the best pain medicines on the market, and educate the public with that truth, rather than to look for every OD they can find where the patient has methadone in their system, and add to their inflated lies of the number of deaths attributed only to methadone. This would help everyone instead of boosting their pride and doing much more harm to the many parts of the country and those with the disease of addiction that cannot get treatment, in a big part, due to their frivolous campaigns. I honestly feel a deep pain in my heart every time I hear of an OD death, especially those of these people who are blaming the medicine and the treatment and ignoring the fact that they may have contributed to their loved one's death by not recognizing the fact that their loved one had an addiction problem.

I have been in the Butler County Jail and I don't see how, in the new jail, you could hang yourself. It would be virtually impossible. in the old jail sure, but not the new one. They need to investigate the deputies that are letting these people be murdered by other inmates. It happened to Coby Chavis. He didn't get along with a certain set of people, and that is who they put him in with and they murdered him and made it look like a hanging. Butler County is corrupt, that is why I don't live there anymore!

Am I the only one not upset over another parasite of society being taken out of the world he took advantage of? He decided to end it.It is not the fault of parents, the jail, the criminal justice system.It was his own action to end his life just like it was his decision to commit a crime and put his sorry butt in there. Good riddence con.

I agree if they ARE hanging themselves, but if 5 or so people get together on one person and hang them, how do you fight back? Worse things are done to prison inmates by a group of inmates or the prison officials themselves. Remember Shawshank Redemption?

Look-okay so a large number are there because they cannot get mental healthcare, how many people do you know that need mental help who actually admit it? We tax payers pay for the inmates to eat, at least cops pay for their own donuts.
