Health Officials should also be testing the local people who live in the vicinity of the Jail also.
If the Employee's are carriers, they could also be bringing this home to their Families and Friends.

who cares criminals should not be in a vacation resort,though I am empathetic to the people who work there. I hate Panty wearing Idio-logic's,(the People who falsly Call themselves LIBERALS) when in fact they are the furtherest thing from a Liberal you could possably immagine.
Criminals DO NOT HAVE RIGHTS, They gave there rights up a long time ago. I'm tired of paying for free food, health care, cable TV, Air Conditioning, Lights, and all the other freebies they get from us TAX PaYers.

Reading your post literally made me want to throw up. Your discusting thoughts that "Criminals" do not have rights and you are tired of paying taxes that are spent on free food, healthcare, etc.... As a matter of fact, EVERY American has rights just as you have the right to your ridiculous opinion. Have you ever thought about those who are in jail that are awaiting trial and may be innocent??? Are they not allowed food? Not all in jail are criminals so next time, be more descriptive of who you are talking about (i.e. Murders, rapist, pedophiles, etc..) There are people in jail that are non-violent offenders and should be given the necessities to live. Guilty of a crime or not, they are human beings. If you want to live like an animal, please feel free to move to your nearest forest and stop paying taxes. But remember, when you are hungry, do not go to your nearest shelter and get free food. You do not deserve it. Wipe your ass with leaves, sleep on the ground, and if your hot please jump in a creek! Im sure picayune has many. If you do not like the American way, please feel free to leave and find a country that you will be happy in. Sounds like America will be a better place without you anyway. Just my opinion and RIGHT to say that!!!!!

I will have you know that you are not paying for alot of things that you should be.. like soap, deordoant ,toothpaste.. a few of things that people (like myself) thought was given to the inmates. Well it is NOT. And if you do not have money on your card (which is given by the family memebers..NOT YOU) then you cant wash with soap or use deoradorant ,then the other inmates beat you for stinking.. EVERYONE (even your dumb ass) as rights. There are some in there that are lost in the system due to the storm loosing their county jail and paperwork is a huge joke.I went to court three times and my son was never brought to court.He has been pushed back going on 3mo .just to go to court.The system is a joke.The main thing I want to say is this.. EVERYONE has rights !You know you could be the one that is in the wrong place at the wrong time so you need to make sure in any way you can that justice is done and everyone can excerise their rights, even if it is just to shower with soap .Believe me when I say that yes anyone that has done wrong should be punished but there are a good bit in there that have not ,for those my heart breaks and for you too that your son or family member never has to be housed in jail.To the person before me.. YES thank GOD for our right to say that !

Hopefully I'll run into you soon you stupid fuck. Obviously you have not been accused of a minor crime or falsely. Accused of any. Your probably an uneducated , poor ass bastard that doesn't have anything better to do but bash people and situations you have no experience in.on top of that your probably on government assistance and sorry but you can't pay any taxes with your EBT bitch.c_ya_soon
