How will the county pay for phase two of the building program?

The proposed expansion at The Hall of Justice needs to be made priorty one. I did a stint down there last year for theft, bad checks, cookin' meth, beating my girlfriend, drunk driving, child abuse, especially aggravated assault with intent to do bodily harm, and speeding. The conditions were horrible. My bunk was very small and uncomfortable. My pillow was not poofy enough for my liking. My mattress was very hard, and they wouldn't let me use a new set of flannel sheets my mother brought me. There was only one television set per cell (it wasn't even in HD), and Basic Cable was the only programming. They woke us up early every morning to eat food. The tables we sat at to play cards was attached to the floor, and the chairs were hard, straight-backed, with no cushions on them at all. I know it was hot last summer, but my god, I almost froze to death in there. The blanket they gave me was made of a very coarse-weave wool. Against the skin it felt like piss-stiffened burlap. They made us take showers, and go to bed early. There was nothing to do but play cards, read, and plot new crimes with the other inmates. It was the worst 48 hours of my life.

I think the new Jail or county prison should be built on the TVA land between Tellico Village and Highway 321. This would be of good use for the land that is just sitting idle. Those gravel walls would make it more ezcape proof.

I agree completely. Why waste money on schools for a bunch of rug rats who aint done nothin to help this county. We got grown adults sitting in tiny rooms, eating bad food and being talked down to all day by the deputies. Is this the way we treat adults in Loudon County?
