Monitor Slams Sheriff Over Jail

 The Federal Monitor for the Raymond detention center slammed the Sheriff's office after six inmates died this year.  A common thread runs through the reports of all six deaths: inadequate staffing, inadequate supervision, employees lack necessary equipment, and failure to follow policies. The last death was perhaps the worst as the inmate's body was not discovered for approximately nine hours. The short but informative report is posted below.

Standing by for lots of campaign related finger pointing in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...

Just wait until the taxpayers have to pay back a couple million in misappropriated/STOLEN ARPA funds next year because the CA/BOS are to comfortable and feeling untouchable ! That's right and the local news won't touch it ! Most if not all county vaccinated employees are NOT eligible for those incentives because they were already jabbed ! The language is clear ! So ? Will they do it anyway or figure a way to pocket the unused funds ? Either way is fraud.

Report exposes Crisler's recent 'shakedown' of the jail for the campaign PR stunt that many, er, most instantly understood the action to be. Inmate killed ten days ago was beaten and stomped to death primarily due to lax, if any, supervision.

Colendula will fix it, just ask her.

Being a criminal is a dangerous job. Prison is the safest place for them but every once in a while even prison is not safe for a thug.

Point of order….it’s not a prison

Prisons are almost universally underfunded and over capacity. Not sure where this should be prioritized for a city with so many major issues, but if they don’t fix something, they will be constantly paying out multi million dollar settlements that could have been used elsewhere.

I worked at all the jail facilities in Hinds County from 1991- 2002. We had grown folks employed back then! We never had a death or escape during our shifts. We took pride and did our jobs. You could here a pin fall in the downtown facility! We didn’t take no shit but treated all inmates with respect! Sheriff MCMillian came in one day when there was a disturbance in the cell lock, but that quickly was put in check!

Yes, we wanted more money, but I think the camaraderie of my fellow Deputies made it a little easier to stay and do a good job. The County may just have to relax the requirements and hire people that really want to work (we were 40-62 ages).

You can’t hire wolves to watch the hen house!

But, the bottom line is these Administrators don’t give a shit and it flows down hill!

My suggestion fire all the shift supervisors and then ask the ones left who wants the Task.

You don’t have to hire a kick ass, , just someone that gives a shit and can follow a 3rd grade simple policy.

In regards to animals kept behind bars, what's the latest with the Zoo?

The Usual Cast of Character said...

Whoever heard of Colendula Greens before or since the brief time period when she had the role of appearing on camera to give a 14 second blurb about happenings in the department? That qualifies one to be sheriff?

Additionally: What good do it do to point a finger at a vacant office after the sheriff has died and a wanabee interim with body guards want his name on patrol cars?

I also cannot see voting for Montel Williams' twin brother who have no other qualification.


Mad Money said...

Truth is this jail is probably better than what most of it's guest deserve. I feel sorry for the zoo inhabitants...not these animals!

I think the Justice Department, assisted by the well trained staff of the ACLU should sue Hinds County for every dime it has. How many years have passed since this place has been the subject of local, state and federal criticism, ridicule and threats?

How many sheriffs have thumbed their noses at all these reports of deficiencies and lack, in this zoo, of civil rights? Those last two words in the last sentence ought to engage all manner of current democrat controlled action.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
