This is the way to run a jail. I bet they don't want to come back for pizza party's like at Barren County.

Instead of building multi-million dollar air conditioned jails, we need to go back to dungeons! Throw the prisoners some bread and water and that's it!

Accused people should not be held in jail- like that poor Lori Ikner- who spent 7 months in jail awaiting a trial that never came, based on evidence that never was.

Ouir judicial system is seriously messed up. We shouldn't even have jails- as it is sick to make all of society pay to feed clothe and shelter criminals, while we give welfare to their families.

There should be capitol punishment for things like murder, and restitution (with punitive damages) for property crimes (that way the victim gets his own back, plus extra for his trouble- and doesn't have to help support the criminal)

And we should stop all the nonsense of arresting people for non-crimes, like using and selling drugs.

But that'll nev er happen- and the way these courts are so corrupt, you could never trust them to administer capitol punishment.

Have you thought about how much our economy in Glasgow would be affected if all the drug activity dried up? The attorneys would lose thier homes(no clients)over half of thier living is made from drug clients. We wouldn't have so many policeman,drug court grants,doctors would have less patients.We would not have had to build a jail(money spent to build,made more jobs). You get the picture. Why would we want to CURE drug addicts? Once they are hooked, it is a vicious cycle.

Money should never be given to the likes of the Yorks to turn someone in. That 5k was gone in two days to the drug adicts. Lindsey had her hand in that too.

Yeah- nationwide the BILLIONS of dollars spent every year on "the wear on drugs" could remain in the pockets of those of us who earned it, and be used for more productive things than greasing the palms of slimy lawyers and empowering the dickheads with badges.-and thus be spent on actual goods and services in the private sector.

Very true. All it does is endanger the innocent, while rewarding the real criminals. What a disgrace that this is now the way our "justice system" operates- and all over the country. The courts are filled with the testimony of drug addicts and criminals- and there testimony is taken seriously, even when they are paid or cut a deal for testifying.

This country is so screwed up. Every D.A. and prosecutor is a lying scheming scumbag, who ends up often convicting innocent people while letting real criminals go- and every judge and lawyer and A.G. knows what goes on, but they all play the game, because them in power and puts money in their pockets.
