    I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY IF YOU HAVE A SON, UNCLE, FATHER, BROTHER, OR ANYONE LOCKED UP AT THIS JAIL YOU NEED TO START A RALLY TO GET THIS JAIL TO REVISE ALOT OF THEIR RULES THAT GOVERN THESE INMATES AT THIS JAIL. BEING THAT THEY EVEN HOUSE COUNTY JAIL INMATES AT THIS JAIL, WHEN YOU HAVE THE MAJORITY OF THE INMATES HERE DOING STATE TIME. I THOUGHT THIS WAS ILLEGAL, WHEN IT'S A CONFLICT OF INTEREST TO HOUSE THESE INMATES TOGETHER. THE GUILTY AND THE NOT GUILTY. ALSO THEY CLAIM THAT THE INMATES, STATE, RECIEVES 8 DOLLARS A DAY, WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN EMBEZZELING MONEY AND GIVING THE INMATES 3 DOLLARS A DAY. THEY HAD FIRED NUMEROUS AMOUNTS OF PEOPLE FOR THIS, BUT THE CONDITIONS THAT THE INMATES LIVE UNDER ARE OBTROCIOUS AND UNSANITARY. THEY EVEN HAVE RODENTS AND ROACHES IN THEIR KITCHEN STILL FEEDING INMATES. THEY WORK EVERYDAY AND DONT EVEN WANT TO GIVE THESE INMATES A COUPLE OF HOT MEALS A DAY!! THEY DON'T SERVE ANY REAL MEAT TO KEEP UP WITH THE BODY SYSTEM, SO IF THE BODY IS NOT FUNCTIONONG RIGHT THEN AN INMATE CAN BECOME SICK. THEY ALSO STICK YOU IN ISOLATION IF YOU ARE SICK OR JUST CAN'T MAKE IT TO WORK THAT DAY. THEY USED TO BEAT UP THE INMATES A LOT, BUT THEY STOPPED DUE TO SOME NEW WARDEN THAT PROMISED ALOT AND DID NOT DELIVER. WARDEN ANDERSON AND DEPUTY WARDEN BOONE TORE THAT JAIL APRT. THEY ONLY CAN WATCH 4 CHANNELS ON THE T.V. WHEN THEY SAVE COLUMBUS GEORGIA MILLIONS OF DOLLARS EVRY MONTH!!!??/ THIS IS A JAIL THAT NEEDS HELP AND THE STAFF NEEDS TO BE FIRED FROM THEIR DUTIES TO PUT PEOPLE IN THEIR POSTIONS THAT CARE FOR THE INMATES. THEY SAY CARE, CUSTODY, AND CONTROL, BUT ALL I HAVE SEEN IS CONTROL. STEALING MONEY IS A FEDERAL OFFENSE. THE FEDERAL PEOPLE NEED TO CLOSE THIS JAIL AND RUN IT BETTER. THERE ARE PEOPLE THERE THAT ARE LOVED AND MISSED DEARLY. YES, THEY ARE THERE FOR CRIMES COMMITTED, BUT WHEN DOES THE REAL REHABILITATION COMES IN AT??? YOU TELL ME.....
