Frank thought he could do like Obama come in and do anything he wanted to nobody would say anything, hopefuly this co. is smarter then that. we elect these people to look out for us, when they get elected they start figering out ways to line their pockets. thank about it, Franks salary + his wife Fay getting paid to take care of the prisoners that would be a chunk of tax dollars going to one family. I'm sure this was in their plans. If they wanted to do the right thing they would all resign. i dont think any one of our co. goverment has the peoples interest at heart.that was plain to be seen at the last meeting.no one stood up for freedem, except that lady krstie,This co. can make a difference if we work together. God will get those crooks!!!!!!!!!!

No wonder ppl turn to drugs. There is nothing here for them. Jobs and education should be the priority right now.

I do like Faye Smith as a person and a good pr.I think she does care about people and tries to help those she can.Why isn,t she still at Deer Lodge?Surely the inmates are noy sent to her only as that would seem to be a conflict of interest.AS i said i like her but if this is true it is wrong.I think if our county is ever to be respected and people treated eqully it will have to come from outside sources.The state or feds are the only ones capable of getting to the bottom of this mess.God is coming back someday and you can be assured He will get it right!

This town is a joke. nobody is taken serious unless of course you are well known...for that big ugly gorilla looking man to put his hands on that poor little guy is just pitiful..and frank smith should be kicked out of there for talking to him like that. He is having our taxes raised so he can put the extra money in his pocket just like he did when he was curcuit court clerk!!!!!!
shame for sure

The public officials of this county really put themselves out on a limb when the GRAND JURY was given the guided tour of the jail by Tony Choate who pointed out the disrepair, neglect and accumulation of BLACK MOLD.

THIS WAS A WELL PLANNED AND STAGED PRESENTATION TO THE GRAND JURY TO PROMOTE THE NEW JUSTICE CENTER AGENDA.

IT was a classic example of stupidity and bad timing something a person would not expect from skilled legal minds like Galloway and Todd Burnett.

NOW THERE CAN BE NO QUESTION THAT TONY CHOATE AND THE JAIL COMMITTEE WERE FULLY AWARE OF THE MOLD PROBLEM AND THE EXISTING HEALTH THREAT.

They might have gotten away with it if it hadn't been for the death of JEFF SMITH a short while later from complications arising from sleeping on the floor for 37 days breathing BLACK MOLD Spores.
and what was JEFF SMITH crime that subjected him to to the abuse that resulted in his loss a life---A MINOR TRAFFIC OFFENSE.

IF SOMEONE IS BREAKING THE LAW THEY NEED TO BE PUT IN JAIL!!~!!~!! WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE BOSS, NOT OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS!!~!!~!! IF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOBS OR YOU THINK THEIR BREAKING THE LAW, THEY SHOULD BE IMPEACHED. IF YOU CAN PROVE IT, YOU NEED TO START LEGAL PROCEEDINGS!!~!~!

Now you are not telling it all again are you? A minor traffic offense...what was it? So the "complications" were a result of the mold? What else was involved?

WELL NOW HMMM

#1 i am a private citizen and as such i don't have to answer anything you demand JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

#2 Some of the information you are demanding is included in formal complaints that have already been mailed to regulatory agencies pertaining to suspected misconduct by public officials.

Be put on formal notice that there are confidentiality laws protecting individuals who file formal complaints any more harassment from you or your buddy's will be reported to the ATTORNEY GENERAL ---IS THAT CLEAR ENOUGH
