My heart goes out for the family of Melissa Czaja
I feel that BC Jail employees should totaly be
replaced, why are they collecting fines, it seems
this should be collected from the court clerks office,
especially since the state audit reveals the missing
funds this pass year, also the many sexual law in
which our BC Fiscal Court settle out of court involing
Danny Faclker.(2-3) It appears that there was something
wrong before her fine was paid, all over $1.00 change.
It is a cover up for them. Check the long history of
employment the pass year, how many have quit because of
the crooks and crime makers working there. Yes, my son
was jailed there once and said that drug is being sold
through the jail by jailors, Danny Faclker, also reaks
of alcohol even on the job. Also, note after the audit by the state that Danny, decides not to run for jailor, and Martha
Knox, is his deputy jailor, is running, think twice this
fall Bullitt County and get the jail in gear, after all
we are all created equal, jailors and inmates, jailors
have no rights to beat up on imates only to retain. Where
is the jail video system??? Why is Melaine Roberts, brushing
this under the rug, after all she is running on the Republican
ticket shouldn't she back her own party. Or is she really
a Republican????? Jailors duty is to take care of and protect
our imates they are human, no matter the crime, I feel the
crimals are on the outside bars, of the inside of the jail.
Bullitt County needs to change this it is time to say no
more look at the Hundered thousands of Dollars that Danny Fackler
has cost, no only to mention his DUI reports, Him and his
dupty jailor Maratha Knoxx, needs to be charged with this
crime and all others that has been going on for years in the
Bullitt County Jail.

I agree, Bullitt Co. only sees $ in their eyes. They all need to go, and bring in the new ones!! No Tinnells,and most of all, the district judge Ward. Mr. Roy Welch has my family votes. We need a change, but lots of people gonna have to do it, one person can't. They are all kin, or good butt buddies. Hope that poor mother burns their butt, I know that wont bring her daughter back, but everyone needs to get Bullitt Co. on front page news every chance they can get.

You are 1 looney off the wall ass .. can't spell, even the simple words you can't get right, makes no sense in your statements, you jump from 1 topic to the next, you don't know who is really responsible for anything, the Fiscal court of 5 members rule the county not Roberts, none of them can tell fackler how to run the jail, he was elected to do that and unless its law, its his way .... YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT !! So go take your government ration of free meds and shut the hell up !!! Oh yea go get locked up so you can get your GED for free you IDIOT.

The truth is that the jail takes fines as a COURTESY for other counties. They are not required to take the money for the $34 she owed. They do this as a courtesy. So the person who paid it would have had to go to Jefferson anyway if the jail did not take it. So this all would have played out the same.

I feel you are the uneducated one, whom has never
been to fiscal court meeting, when your upset you
make mistake, after all I'm only human. It is
know that Judge Roberts, is in charge of the County
seat over everyone in the court house, and there
has been times when does what she wants, with no
regards to the other members. You are rude and
stupid and must be a friend of Martha Knoxx,
and Danny Faclker. or maybe you are one of them

Thank you, it is time to reopen the pass 4 years of
all our candiates pass, Danny Fackler, to many DUI's
in several counties in KY, sexual lawsuit, and now
the death of an woman, with two young children, the
cheating of the voting machine by Danny, yes him and
Melaine Roberts are buddies. Also the state audit,then
all of a sudden Danny, is not running for jailor,
Also, Martha Knoxx, was his asst. jailor,and in charge
at that time. It's sad a death of a person is only when
people open their eyes.

Now how do you figure that .. get your eyes checked ! How come someone always ends up making a bad situation such as a death, and try to turn it into someones political agenda. Get back in your closet, or maybe try a church !

I have lived in Shepherdsville all my life. I have seen the legal system crooks come and go over the years. I know only one honest person in the Bullitt County legal system whom done the right thing(Mac Macauliffe) To bad he's probably retired by now.In all 50 years that is the only honest one in Shpeherdsville. I have seen and heard of all the dishonesty that goes on here. For this mother my heart goes out to her and her little children and possibly her death will not be in vain. It's a shame she had to die over $34.00. When there are crimes in Bullitt County that needs to be addressed instead of these little things that make the police department look bad. I hope this Mother gets her justice for her daughter.

To "Another concerned mother",

With all due respect to you and your experience; you should consider meeting some if the manner officers and deputies that are working at this time. While I like Mac and have nothing but good things to say about him he is not the only "honest" person working in law enforcement in the area. You are correct that he is retired from policing, but still works for the City of Shepherdsville. While in law enforcement myself I get the opportunity to work with individuals from each police agency, legal group, judge, and others. That said I have met several honest and outstanding individuals in this group and have met those I wouldn't turn my back on. My point is before you make such a drastic and generalized comment about every law enforcement member try and make and informed decision and meet these folks yourself. I can tell you tate right about some being dishonest, but you are also wrong about many.
