    I STRONGLY DISLIKE JOHNSON COUNTY JAIL!!

  4. Lanie Henderson Sun, Jan 15 2012 6:42 PM

    I am not fond of the Johnson County Jail or most of their employees ! The lady who sits behind the glass window is very nice and over worked! I go to visit a friend there and johnson county jail system is so back asswards! I drive an hour away then wait til 530 to begin accepting ids for visit sit and wait til first group is called snd its 7:30 pm really? Why does it take u oeople so long to get inmates ready for visitation? Its not like their in transit but u people treat family and visitors visiting like we are the criminals! Perhaps u shouldnt be so quick to judge it could be u viditing a loved one pne day! Maybe if u had compassion u people might understand! And while we are awaiting visit ur officers ( mostly all over weight!) are constantly eating, and smoking! U employee kids to run this jail! U people in kohnson county could learn a thing ot two from tarrabt county that is how to get inmates ready for visit in timely manner tarrant county had it togethet with alot more inmates so whats the problem with yalls setvice? It SUCKS! Wait til 7:30 for 15 min visit grt out 8:00pm dtive an hour home ! I work and so di ither people who go to visit but u people are so fukkin slow!

    By far the worst experience with law enforcer officials I have ever had the displeasure of having. If you are masochistic and prefer verbal and near physical abuse over polite and courteous service then I strongly recommend johnson county. However if you are part of the social norm and would rather be treated like a human being then keep as far away from these sadists as possible. Simple things like asking visiting hours or for a little assistance with how the new commissary process works are met with indignation guffaws and quite literally a go to hell attitude, all of which are served by none other than Satan in glasses herself, an 80 year old geriatric (hopefully abused as a child) woman with a stick in her fat ass so long it's a miracle she can even sit on her "throne of power". If visiting, prepare to be treated worse than the inmates. "you know these people? You must be scum as well". Bitch please, half "these people" are traffic violaters and many more were wrong place wrong time. If you seriously hate the world so much why don't you take yourself out of it and save us all some grief.

    My husband was on probation for a felony and was rolled while doing overnights. They had him sit in there for nearly 30 days didn't tell us who his new probation officer was and the guy in charge of overnights didn't even know he was rolled until I called a week later to get info. We finally get in touch with his probation officer and she tells me he just has to sit in there the rest of his 90 days. He calls me yesterday and told me they moved him to stripes and had a warrant for Revocation of Probation because he hasn't checked in or done any community service in 4 1/2 weeks. WELL NO SHIT. He's been siting in there! How the hell is he supposed to do anything?! I'm due with our son in 5 weeks. Thanks Johnson County for your stupidity!!! Now unless I can get in touch with the judge he will miss out on everything because of your faults! Terrible jail. My sister in law was also in there and became sick from their black mold problem.

  14. Marie Tue, Apr 08 2014 2:15 AM

    This is the worst jail in Texas, Their visitation proceeding is absolutely disorganized. 3 hours wait to see your loved one and then 20 minutes visitation, this is a disgrace. I have never encountered this kind of problems in any of the jails that I have visited in Texas. Those people there don't give a shit about anything, they care less for your inconvenience.

  15. Jo Tue, Apr 08 2014 2:25 AM

    Visited my son on this horrible jail 3 weeks ago and it was the worst experience Ive ever had in any jail in Texas. Why does it take so damn long for a visit? You sign in at 5:30, wait till 6:30 to present your id. First group gets called at 7:00 P.M. comes out at 7:20, second group does not get called until 8:15 P.M. so why the hell it takes an hour for the second group to be called, what the hell do this f'ing cops do In the meantime. Such a disorganized system. But of course, its Johnson County, the worst county in Texas to be arrested.They should pout all those people working there in jail so they can get a taste of how it feels.
