Who was he and what did he do? Why is it so easy for these guys to do this? I know there is a lot of inmates and so forth to look after but surely they have a ratio to go by like 1 officer for every 5 inmates or something. I dont see why they take a chance and mess up a goodthing. Im sure there are a lot people in jail who would love to go out an wok a few hours instead of being caged in there cell. All though I know they are there for a reason and so forth, I hope they catch the guy and I hope he had a really good reason to mess up.

It's fairly simple actually. I have worked with many of the inmates of BCC and I seen them do things you would think they would never wanna do to mess up freedom. Sometimes I think they have to much freedom being there.

Well guys there is good and bad in all of us I had to do this program for a few weeks because of a DUI it was that or a huge fine. I think they need to limit the program to DUI or child support cases not some of the criminals that were in the program when i was there.

Yes I agree there is good and bad in us all, its just how we act on it that forms the person we are. Cant blame you I would rather work than pay the fine. What kind of work do they have you do other than pick up trash? Yea there should be some limitations, what all types do they allow (charges),now that you think they should change? Im not to familiar with it but I have always been interested in the way jails are ran and the charges they put on people and how. I watch a lot of the jail shows, lock up in san quentin, and so forth. They intrest me for some reason. Cause I see a lot of people with good potential behind the bars. Yes they may have done something to get where they are at but its not always just because there bad people, a lot are victim or circumstances.

i think the one was from the dept of corrections halfway house the program i was talking about you stay at home and go there during the day and mostly weedeat and mow or pick up trash around the city and county parks. basic stuff that saves us all tax dollars. And i dont know about the rest of you but if you have ever had a glass of wine at dinner then drove home you could of gotten a dui just like i did now granted i had 2 glass but still
