    My brother has staph infection and they haven't taken him to see a doctor yet. It keeps getting worse and bigger. They made him fill out a form to request to see a nurse that could take a week. My brother is insanely sick... He is only in for a DUI and this is how he gets treated.

    My brother is in there with staph as well. I call the medical and told them about it. It had busted and was bleeding guess what they did, they took him from his cell and put him in the holding tank till the next day. He was charged with dwi (2) but they pulled 2 more from 1992 and 1998 so they charged him with 4. I'm told the place is dirty, dirty and very over crowded. I'm told a lot of the ones in there have staph infections, boils and sores. If anyone knows what can be done please let me know. In the passed I know that they hold people in holding cells as long as they want before they will book them. He has been put in the squairl cage and was tolded if he was to squat down he would be shocked.

    My son was arrested in the mall parking lot. He was out drinking, he got dropped off at his car in the mall. He knew he shouldn't drive home, so he called us to come get him. He was in a reclined position in his car waiting for us to come get him. In the meantime the police got there pulled him out the car and took him to jail, towed his car. He was charged with DWI and resisting arrest. It cost me 600.00 cash to bail him out and 250.00 for the tow yard. Last week out of the blue my son got a stating the charges are recalled and his lic was reinstated. It was done. Well I am not done I am out 850.00. If the charges are dropped with out going to court domi get my money back. Also as part of his bond before pleading not guilty he had to have a interlock installed in his car. That was 180.00 to install plus 2 months of payments of 75.00 per month. Again do I get that back.

    Everyone Go to the FBI, file complaint, get lawyer and go to state/federal judges, file with state/federal attorney generals. Talk to friends, neighbor, relatives about Sheriff, DA, Judges in St.Tammany psh. about reelecting people with compassion and seek justice.

    I have been in the twice and everything that is being posted is valid and legit. Yes they keep you in the holding cell for 2 to 3 weeks. They are so focused on petty issues that they don't give two shits about human rights common decency and respect. Those are the laws of God, not man. And if Jack(ass) Strain is this man of faith like he claims he should know this. They don't see "criminals" as humans with problems. They see them as threats to society. The last time I checked a drug addict is NOT A THREAT TO SOCIETY being that they are REHABILITATED. Yes some people are just bad people while others are good people who suffer from addiction. Being an addict myself I have been in Recovery for a year now without a drop of alcohol or a single drug in my body. I NO LONGER DO CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES. That way of life is NON EXISTANT. My probation officer asks me to help with her clients. She has seen the change and I sponsor women she has difficulty with. Back to St. Slamanny...there has to be something done with their "judicial system" it is not fair for their residents to live in fear of the police, criminal or not. The police and the DA are supposed to be people to help us, not condemn us because we are not one of "them" or someone with money or family and friends. The conditions in jail are so poor and unjust. Women get treated the worst. I pray for the families and inmates that they will see the light of the deep dark tunnel St. Tammany has put them in. God Bless y'all.

    I moved to the Mississippi coast about a year and a half ago. Ever since, it has become increasingly clear that St. Tammany Parish more resembles a third-world police state than anyplace in America. I'd encourage anyone and everyone sick and tired of the abuses committed by the St. Tammany Sheriff's office, the Covington and Mandeville police departments to leave that hell hole and move someplace where you're appreciated by your community.

  16. FTMom Fri, Jun 28 2013 10:16 AM

    Seriously, by reading some of these illiterate posts, I can see how a lack of education has a trickle-down effect on some of these criminals. That being said, the conditions are poor so that people will not want to continue to commit crimes and go back to jail. You give up your rights when you commit a crime. Drug addicts are a threat to society. They make poor decisions that affect others at the very least. Sadly, sometimes those others are their own children and families. Why do you people post on here trying to defend people who have done wrong? How do you think they got there? By parents who have enabled them and made excuses for them. That's all I see on here...more of the same. Make them be accountable for their actions then maybe they will change.

  17. A Child of God !! Sat, Jul 06 2013 10:58 PM

    Oh my gosh...I have heard from my sons girlfriend that St Tammany is literally a hell hole, for any reason a person is in there. Also, innocent people are falsely narked on and they believe these criminals and give the innocent that is really trying there best to get out of there. When an inmate finds out one is getting close to being released they cause trouble for that person because they have no remorse because they are in there for years. Really, how fair is that. And for the record I also heard that LA has a very strict discrimination issue when it comes to the white race. They all are humans, and not animals.If the tables was turned and it was one of you employers in there, just imagine how you would feel !! But one thing for sure, we all will be judged someday by God above, and that means YOU and YOU and YOU !!! I think you get my drift. And God sees how all these inmates are being treated and God never forgets !!! Laugh if you want, but it's so true. Remember we all have to die someday, and that means YOU and YOU and YOU !!!! For Gods sake at least get all these inmates help with health issues, the Godly thing to do. And what ever color or race we are, God loves us all. Again, we ALL will bow our knees to the Lord above whether good or bad. Are you people any better than anyone else ? I think not. Have a Blessed day and may God be with you all !!!! A very concerned mother, who loves her son so much and praying to God to watch over him and keep him safe and from harm from such as yourselfs. If I were a lot of you I would really be ashamed of myself for the way you run that so called jail. God have mercy !!!!

    mail cert.letters to the gov. office state only the facts of conditions at said jail, don't send names of inmates only the facts of conditions start a phone tree with others who care. every concern all call with callback #s also most states the grand jury inspects the jail one of there duties to complete. prepare letters of conditions only facts address juror #1 -juror # 18 if dates are known be there and hand to jurors also tv interviews state only the conditions and concerns speaker should stick to conditions also be able to speak proper. no one should be treated inhumanely there are ways to change the system be firm in your efforts don't let up or back down learn your rights also law enforcement took an oath of office its your protection oath said all laws includes inhumane treatment, cruel & inhumane punishment pass it on to all set your differences aside work together for a common goal of respect for the accused,one person can change a lot many persons change more, public outcry works,peaceful protest works dont waste time here nothing but cops that think they know the law till they get into trouble there employer will drop them like a hot tator lmao evertime , court watchers .com has forms to download get involved before its to late.
