The JUDGE is absolutely correct. The jail is not meant for vacationers. Not a free public hotel! LOL!

if everyone was perfect then we wouldnt have no world. so for all the smart comments talking bout that come on now a human bein lost his life in jail and look at the comments that was made. no jail aint for vacationers. but everyone in jail aint alway guilty of a crime that they said to commited. but they are innocent in jail until proven guilty in court

My fiance is in Martinsville City jail and his time is done and he is still being held. I don't understand what is going on. I miss him so much. It is very unsanitary there they have roaches in their food, no medical treatment is offered, I know jail is not for vacationers but they are still human.
