    I dont have a car, is there any type of transportation that one can use to visit an inmate

  6. Tax Payer Tue, Dec 27 2011 10:39 AM

    Judith Castro do you really think that the taxpayers of Pennsylvania are going to pay for your transportation to visit an inmate? Really? Are you on crack?

  7. ms. Taylor Tue, Dec 27 2011 2:23 PM

    Tax Payer- you don't know Judith or her situation. That was uncalled for to as her if she is on crack. She is not the one in jail. You need to be more compassionate or don't say anything at all. Be blessed...all of you.

    Are you able to kiss an inmate when you visit them in Laurel Highlands?

  9. tiffany Wed, May 16 2012 3:10 PM

    ive came to visit this jail several times in which every time i was stared at or screamed at by a guard. last time i came up i slipped on the ice, and fell on my 4 month old daugter infront of the door and two of the gaurds laughed at me! My boyfriend james has been a model inmate with perfect behaviour, he is extremely sick and just recentely had a stroke. He cant even walk a straight line and they are worried that he will be a flight risk?! Ive tried calling his unit manager several times and ive also tried his counsiler which got me no where and my words fell on deaf ears. they say this prison is over crowded then why wont they release non voilent inmates who have served their minimum and have been on good behavior??? he barely receives the medical treatment that he needs and is threatened with a write up if he complains about the way they treat him. they need to let him out before he dies in there.

  10. pete Tue, May 22 2012 6:18 PM

    it's the parole system they are failing our families they don't care at all that the jails/prisons are over crowded even the smallest infraction putts you back in jail they have too much power the state is out of funds and they still locking people up tax payers are paying like 90 dollars a day to houses inmates pretty soon will be paying 150 we need to vote tom corbett out of office what are the odds of that we need someone who cares grateford prison is the worst state inspectors should close it down what are the odds of that all this s**t gone back fire on them hard people is already lost in the system pennsvlyania is failing us we need to take a stand and fight

  11. Unknown Sat, Jun 30 2012 6:27 PM

  12. Celeste Banks Thu, Aug 23 2012 12:32 PM

    I would like to speak with Ms. Deneen regarding Tyrone Fluker JT 4578. My name is Celeste Banks and I am his sister. I am not able to reach you by phone. Would you please call me when you have time. (412) 414-7021. I am concerned for his state of depression.

  13. JoeSmith Wed, Jan 09 2013 10:15 AM

    I want to know why you put put a young man in prison with mass murderers/rapists who committed a DUI act which he knows he did wrong but now since he entered you will not let him out. He paid his dues. You have individuals that have killed and gotten out of prison before he has. He has been in Prison now for 2.5 years and they denied his patrol, something is wrong. There is not enough jail space already for the killers who deserve to just die instead of taking up space. You take a life you do not deserve to be in Prison. When they do get out they commit the same act. We the tax payers are paying for there food and a place to stay, for what.

  14. Denise Thu, Feb 14 2013 1:37 PM

    I have a brother and nephew in the system too and I agree non-violent criminals such as my brother and nephew should not be housed with violent crimals. And most of the violent crimals shouldnt even be alive to be in prison. I also have been mistreated as a visitor and can only imagine how they are treating my family members in there.I know the injustices of this system. I had an Uncle who was murdered and his killer only did 6 yrs. My brothers facing 2 to 6 for smoking a joint and traffic violations. And also when my brother was being sentenced the pervert before him got less time then he did. I almost got throwed out of the courtroom for saying loudly that is was bullshit that my brother was facing more time then the pervert was. My nephew has a brain ijury and gets a disability check for not being able to remember stuff but they lock him up for not remembering to pay his fine. How can they even do that when he has a medical condition that clearly states he cant remember that part of his brain is damaged? Yes we would should stand up and fight but where do you start. I am willing to do whatevers necessary to change things. If someone is reading this and knows who I can contact to getting involved in putting a stop to this bullshit system. RESPOND ON HERE

  15. deb Thu, Mar 28 2013 5:00 PM
