The starke county jail, is so unfair to its prisoners. They have to buy everything at the commisary, You cant even send them stamps for letters.They do not have enough jailors to take care of the some 80 inmates,The rooms are over crowded, and the visiting hours are very short, and through a glass. No chairs , They arrest people for the most minute charges. There are people getting beaten up, because there isnt adiquit personel to watch what is going on. They sit in there for weeks, without getting to talk to a lawyer or detective, or anyone who could help them. They are supposed to be granted a speedy trial, this is inexcusable. While all the while they are ignoring, and overlooking the real criminals that are running around free. You call this justice? I call it abuse.

You are so totally right!!! there are so many people who commit every crime except for murder and they are never incarcerated. Whats the deal? My sons abusers are free because of a faulty criminal justice system.

what nobody seams to mention is the fact that the people in the jail most likely did something to get themselves arrested. and if jail was not a bad place, there would be a lot more crimes committed.
