The conditions at the Spokane County Jail are dreadful. The facility is a disgrace to our legal system which was based on the presumption an individual is innocent until proven guilty. Many of the guards and staff, but not all, have taken the right to abuse inmates, belittle their families, and interfere with the legal process by using power not given to them. Any resident or citizen who thinks they would never have to deal with going to the Spokane County Jail should think again. Innocent people are arrested every day and most sad are convicted of crimes they did not commit. May this never happen to you or someone in your family.

They I mean (them) Guards & Staff at Spokane County Jail are just able to abuse the inmates inside there mentaley and or phisicaly and get away with that . Who are they to have any kind of rights to do so, And really what do they think that is going to do to the inmates that their doing it to and there attitudes? Make them better listeners or what . Thats the most uglyst kind of treatment Ive ever heard of . And nobodys outing a stop to it. They are suposed to be the "Good Guys" right atleast that's what they teach our children in school . And we the parents say that they are the ones besides ourselfs to call if in danger and or that will keep them safe from the bad people .But when my 10year old son says that he don't trust them because of those kinds of actions asking me then who am I to call mom if I can't trust them .Makes me very sad

Come the revolution, the lawyers, judges, corrupt cops and other toadies of the court system will be the first to be roasted alive on spits.

Politician = lawyer.
