  1. Cobb Cops Tue, Jul 24 2012 9:42 AM

    All you cops do is violate people's rights. And the lie about in a court of law. I hope someone violates your rights one day. You are not even good at your job. Why don't you actually bust real criminals instead of preying on people who haven't done anything. Cobb County needs to be investigated!

  2. None of your business Sat, Sep 08 2012 4:10 PM

    This jail is a pit. 2100 bed space way over capacity. Hardly any books no tv's in the main jail no radios. The yards are a joke as they removed all the equipment so it is essentially just another large cell where you can play sock football or sit in a sliver of sunlight. This jail offers very little movement. So tensions are high and fights are common. Very slow judicial process, if one can not bond out then expect to spend the next 6-12 months waiting to go to court, oh sure there will be many dry run court trips where they move you and you spend all day being moved to the transport area, moved to a cell, then another cell, then the courthouse, then another cell, then another cell, only to find out you were not really going to court that day. This is a regular occurrence in this jail. Then you finally get to court and get sentenced with credit for time served of course as you just spent a year of your life on a relatively small charge. Also this jail has a problem with what is referred to as mad jackers. This is where an inmate will masturbate from a far at just about any female officer or nurse, sick fuckers! I was in O pod which is a two tiered room day room upper and lower showers and shitters. Four cuts and during that time bed assignments were not done so you could move to or be thrown out of the Ghetto, Trailer Park, Old Folks Home or Little Mexico any time but people generally chilled with their own group. Lots of boats riddled the day room floor for more people to sleep and staph infections were a common site to see on some people. Fucking Pit! The food sucks, the store is alright but after a year how many honey buns, cup of soups, donuts, pop tarts and chips can one really stand. Since my stay they have erected a new portion of the jail that features video visiting and equally just as less movement.

    This jail is currentling incarcerating a 64 year old woman and refuses to give her insulin which she needs sto l live. We believe that they are doing this to frighten her into pleasddding guilty of something that she is not guilty of. I have never seen such a cruel local justice system anywhere the United States. Please email (sanjo44@gmail.com ) if you or anyone you know has ever been denied medical attention while in this jail.

  4. Detained person Sat, Jun 15 2013 10:02 PM

    Cobb County Sheriff denies access to Law Library to anyone jailed unless they can petition the court to get recognized as pro se then the Sheriff must recognize this (non OCGA motion). Months easily pass while persons jailed in Cobb County lose their rights. Only your charges can be researched in this obstruction of justice and denial of fundamental Constitutional rights.

  5. Impeach Neil Warren Sat, Jun 15 2013 10:10 PM

    A cop has no liability for arresting you falsely, in Cobb County this happens often. Look at the rubber stamp Magistrate Probable Cause Hearing - often mixed in without notice to a Bond (Lowering) hearing. If the charge fails EVIDENCE, as in NO evidence, the Magistrate will find for probable cause anyway. Cobb County is running JAIL as an ATM machine, insuring those jailed are kept at taxpayers expense. This illegal conduct is theft of taxpayers, the rhetoric is lower jail costs, the reality is increasing jail costs.

  6. SUE Cobb County * Federal Court Sat, Jun 15 2013 10:26 PM

    Cobb County Sheriff's Department will take a detainee to court, not identify the court or the proceeding, provide NO time to prepare, deny all legal materials be limiting law library access to a request for materials which are not provided except in a general and useless way. Cobb County requires several people who have been denied their United States of America Constitutional rights, State of Georgia Constitutional rights, federal and Georgia Law rights by denial of due process, equal protection under the law, fundamental fairness along with statutory rights in trial, procedure, evidence, appeals and more. Cobb Jail denies basic address information of bonding companies, courts, courts of appeals, outside counsel. The phone system blocks collect calls after a period of time so you can not call anyone except a bonding company - if you can find someone there with that information.

    This jail is horrible. One of the females was pregnant, she didn't get any medicine you need while being pregnant or milk or extra food. another lady had staff infection, and when she showed the officer, he just replied with "no" and put his hand up in her face. Another girl had diabetes and had her family/family send in the things she needed to test her blood, 5 times a day and she needed a snack every so often. She never got anything done or any medicine. At night when people got medicine, we found out the bottle of "Tylenol"...which was actually aspirin, was expired! all the women were taking expired medicine! Another girl was epileptic and needed her medicine, and NEVER GOT ANYTHING. she also was sleeping on a top bunk...and there was no where else for her to sleep. She also needed extra blankets because of that because, cold would send her into a seizure...and you know its freezing in there. She never got any extra blankets or a jacket for that matter. This place was insane. I never felt so scared about everyone's life. I thought Id wake up and they would be dead next to me. ILL PRAY FOR ALL THE COPS WHO RUN THIS PLACE. YOU ALL NEED IT. GOD SEES HOW YOU TREAT THESE PEOPLE. Y
