  10. ToughLove Parent Mon, Mar 18 2013 4:51 PM

    I think it's good that this place is "horrible". It's called tough love, and it's just what kids need. They think they can do what they want and get by with a slap on the wrist. If this place is bad then they don't want to go back. I guess it persuades them to act right and stop doin illegal stuff!!! YAY McCracken County! My son is in there, and he deserves to be. He says it's bad there. I have no sympathy for him. He made bad choices no matter how much we cried and begged him to do better. Maybe now he will straighten up and see that jail isn't fun. To everyone whining about how bad they are treated there...SUCK IT UP. I am sure you were all warned by those who cared. Your actions got you in there. Life is tough. It is what you make it. You end up there... it's your fault and you shouldn't be babied while you're in there. It's not a day care, it's JAIL!

    You do the crime, you do the time. If you can't follow the laws then yes, you do need to be in there until you can. I have a child in there and she needs to be there to learn her lesson. It's not a vacation. Its jail, its going to be bad and you will be treated badly so get over it and stop complaining. It's not the Hilton.
