It is just a waste of money because most of the contraband phones, drugs etc. is being brought in from the inmates that are leaving daily for supposebly work release so why dont you crack down on the inmates that are bringing them in a fence is a waste of taxpayers money!!!

one woman was using a pixie stick and sticking it through a hole in the outside wall of the jail to the inmates inside could grab it. Heard the officers couldnt figure out how the inmates were getting messed up everyday. The fence would solve that problem. by the way they plugged up that hole so dont get any ideas.

This is a joke. It has been over a month since they put the posts in the ground and work has ceased. What is the hold up? Must not have been much of an issue.

They just fired a jail nurse for bringing stuff in. Have fired numerous c.o.'s in the past for doing the same. It's never gonna stop.

I really feel for your fiance. In the 3 1/2 months I was there I witnessed them putting an inmate in the rubber room for having a seizure, which she had because they hadn't given her her meds. Another girl who is on an insulin pump and a severe diabetic, they took her pump off and sent her to the block. She was literally dying in there as a result of what they did. She got lucky and family was able to get her out of the block and I believe she got out. My husband had to call butch baker because I had been there 2 weeks and they hadn't started giving me my meds yet. When baker told them to check my blood pressure, it was above stroke level. Call butch himself to try to get them on her medical issues. If that doesn't do it, call tv news, just keep trying. You are correct, the jail IS the biggest COMMON New Castle!

So the jail is supposed to pay for a new liver for a criminal? I don't think so.
