I agree. This could've totally been prevented if the people around that jail house weren't sorry.

This is the third thread on this subject why not post in the original thread.
The dopehead overdosed and killed himself whats more to say on the subject?
Maybe if he hadn't took dope he would not have died either.
He was 23 that's not a kid that's an adult
If you loved him so much why didn't you stop him from oding?

Maybe it could be yours but not mine because mine never used dope. And mine were never arrested.

But none of us want drug heads on behind the wheels of cars, Just cant happen,so I have a few new ideas
1, Take away any DUI car and Driver License for five years , sale the car as a fine,no matter if its a lexus or a rolls Royce or a Amc gremlin.
2,Start a new bus service for DUI offenders no more driving cars only Bus rides to work and back home,3 if someone is caught saleing drugs take there farm and house and sale it to build alcoholic estates prodject houseing for addicts and alcoholics, Call it the wet section of town,
where all the drunks can live side by side,Let them drink there self to death and walk until they have stone bruizes on there feet or ride a bike and if one gets drunk and goes walking and stumbels out in front a car Oh well, at least the non drinking family will only feel a small thug to the side of there van, Kids will be safe inside the cars,Kinda like hitting a deer,but you cant eat them of mount there head on the wall for keep sakes,4 and if a police officer abuses one of them send him to jail just like any other person cause that is what he is just another human being,The Prisons cant afford to take care of drunks and drug drunks, This way sick people can get medicine again..from there Doctors,And it would open up a new houseing market for first time sober homebuyers, and used cars for non DUI take moneys and build the Alcolics Estates, and Drug Head High Rises gated communitys they can ride up and down on the elevators and if they leave the High Rise Section of town and walk out in front a passing buss of alcoholics on there way to work Oh well...keep a good funeral plan ...but we got to allow these people ferrdoms to distroy there self its there rights unless it puts in danger others lives....Little humor here but we cant arrest America we already have a higher prison population then Russia or China someone got to think of something differnt another way to approach this problem.

Tell your children Look honey a alcoholic he is wanderd away from the Alcohol Estates from the wet lands, maybe he will find his way home when the bar opens later, Put a little Government bar in the Alcoholic Estates, In the drug addicts High Rises gates coummitys have a Ball team The Detoxers like a univercity for drunks and druggies rehab houseing with no cars allowed cause really the main thing I hear people say is what if they get high and wreck in to my kids? Get them druggies off the road I agree, Get them on a buss, Our kids are not allowed to drive to school every day in America millons of Kids get up at 6am in cold weather and wait on a buss and go to school and study for half the day and then ride that same buss back home from Home to the school building, we need a alcohol building and take away all drunks cars, and haul them to work in a buss and pick them up in that same buss, they can have bikes peddel around on and the real nice ones that have been clean could ride a moped, if they crash in to a car still the car or van would have the advantage of the crash, train children and people how to deal with drunks in the event one wanders in to your dry neibourhood on a bike or wabbeling call 991 drunk alret and have the drunk pound to provide him a ride back to his alcoholic estates, They could be profeshionals that would work with the alcoholics and addicts medical care monitoring of self and vocation visions for the future, these are sick people and maybe some could break there drug habbits and drinking but at least they would not be DUI and endangering lives...If my child was on drugs or a alcolic I would not care one bit if he was in a part of town that give him a place to live with his kind with HELP! I had rather him be there as to be in a prison comeing off drugs cold turkey with murders rapist probley getting hiv from prison rapes all his rights took away and only learning horrable things from other prisoners , Prison is not a rehab for this kind of non violent crimes I had rather my child if they were a drunk or druggie be able to have a chance to get back in to soceity, we could stop making alcohol, stop making drugs,and close down pharmacys and doctors office ou know what people that wanted to do they would fine something if it was cow chit and bug juice and skum off of a road kill to get high , what we gonna do duck tape there hands and feet and tube feed them in prisons? to keep them alive while the people that believe they are better people take over the earth..we cant lock up non violent drug offenders we got to make a place where they can have a chance to choose to live a desent life after all its all relative is it not? takeing away there automobiles and sertain rites and offering houseing with others like them i dont know what els to say i really dont.

Mr. Larry Hammons is running for jailer again ,the public needs to be aware of how nasty &dirty the Knox County jail is. Also that his staff is very rude to everyone that has to enter that jail for any reason. You do not have to be an imate,I guess that those people do not relize that we the tax payers pay their salaries.We need to find out who is running against him and give this person our total support,tell them to go check out the jail so they can use it against Mr. Hammons.
