I for one am no angle but I can say I never was placed in that jail for any thing. I have only been in the front door once. I think that Hardin Co. should have repaired the building and turned it into a museum of crime. Charge a entrance fee to the public. I understand that Hardin Co don't have money but in the long run it would have been a money maker and also opened up at least 3 or 4 jobs into the community.

Why would they put a park there? My guess is it will sit empty, or St. Johns will turn it into another parking lot for their growing flock of slothful, hypocritical sheep.
