I have been locked up there and trust me they have beaten inmates and use excessive force constantly and it's more than one jailer doing it. Even after the new sheriff has taken over i don't expect much to change unless the F.B.I. takes drastic measures

yes they should be investigated. the inmates are treated bad. they don't get their mail, or medicine on time. they do try to pick fights with the inmates. they have more than 2 inmates to a cell and one has to sleep on the floor. If you call and ask why didn't someone get their meds. or why didn't they get labs drawn, they say we have been working short and haven't had time to do it. It is really sad, they are still are humans too

Yes, they are humans...humans who if they hadn't done something to end up in jail, would be able to walk to their own mailbox to check the mail, they would be able to take their meds when it's time...or even sleep in their own bed.
Imagine that? Don't break the law and you won't end up there.

I think some people make a bad mistake and end up in jail and still they are humans, let it be one of your child who end up in jail and this happen to them wether they are wrong or not still no one has the right to beat up on peoples and abuse the law. everyone has their own judgement on things but never say what can and cannot happen we never no. the law is supposed to help and protect not beat and abuse. just because you are the law you can have a bad background and needs to be checked regularly. its not up to you too give a punishment its up to thr lord and he is watching over us all. try him and he'll show who is the boss. You who wrote that about checking their own mailbox, stick around it might not be you but a love one close might end up there and get that same treating then what its a law suit then. Ha!
