Horrible Jail Conditions
Posted in the Swain County Forum
#1 Sep 8, 2007
I have a daughter in jail in Swain County and I don't condone the actions which landed her there, but the inhumane conditions imposed by the chief jailer in Swain County should be brought out into the open and some changes should be made. My daughter soiled her 'jumpsuit' which was given to her by Graham County on Tuesday, this is Saturday and they told her she would not get a clean change of clothes until next Tuesday. You can only get underclothes, etc. by buying them at very inflated prices from the jail and you can only send money to the inmates to purchase the very costly items thru the mail via a money order. A money order was sent to her, but so far she hasn't received it. Jail is not supposed to be a fun place I know, but she hasn't been tried or convicted, she's only being held there, but they obviously think it's their job to punish everyone there by withholding basic human rights -- personal hygiene, suitable clean clothing and underclothing and generally make life as unbearable as possible. I plan to make my voice heard and try to help change the horrible conditions being imposed by the jailers at the Swain County Jail.
