The message is plain and simple: If you don't want to get your a** beat, don't do anything to get put in jail.

Greg has serious brain damage and has been unconsious since it happened a couple of weeks ago. The guy who did it was a Federal safe house prisoner.

i think that all the comments about blount county its true, just call them and ask what do they serve for linch every day. they serve peanutbutter sandwiches every single day. they cannot say that they serve a well balance meal. i dont know if by being locked down they are allready paying their mistakes alot people havent plead guilty. and the warrent of this jail is punishing them by not feeding them well. my question is where are the us marshals in charge of the federal prisioners. are they really treating them acording to the law.this people are human beeings, every body is exposed to make mistakes and the only person that should judge them is a JUDGE NOT A WARRENT OF A PRISION. he is commiting a crime by treating more than 700 inmatesthe way this inmates are being treated by eating peanutbutter sandwiches 6 days of the week.who is more criminal?the person that is in charge of 700 inmtes or more, or each individual inmates.

Uh...I don't think the county is worried about the correct dietary needs of a violent prisoner. So, they are not getting pancakes and sausage for breakfast and roast beef for dinner- that is THEIR problem then. They shouldn't have done the crime.
