Now we know why the Jail is called the "HUG-A-THUG FOUNDATION" by other jails. The local cops refer to it as "THE HILTON ON THE HILL"!

Have anybody out there heard OF INNOCENT UNTILL PROVEN GUILTY??? some inmate are waiting for bond hearing, stupid shit. Would you treat a child murder the same respect that a person writing bad checks. Before you judge people realize we are one false allegation from jail. I know wingina has to pipe in day light so come out of the dark ages...Or should we applaud such an outstanding citizen that has never did anything wrong. Get a life. Don't be served with it..

I was in there and seen how the Administation operates the Jail like an out of control daycare.
Inmates were bragging how much they loved the jail.
No one understands the term "FALSE ALLEGATION" better then I. I also take a stand for principles, morals, and honesty. However JAIL should be operated like a JAIL. Inmates had no fear of returning because of their VIP treatment.

B.S. The men live in a different world than the women. The men run the place "work release " The women are locked down in a dorm 23 hours a day. They are striped searched after a face to face meeting. Some of these people are waiting for there turn to get in front of the camera, The judge shows no empathy and listens to the D.A. This is a sad world when the police can take away your freedom the ripple effect, All the families that are left behind. Do they receive the "V.I.P. treatment? We as human sometimes to forget that everybody has a story and if you have a court appointed attorney your screwed. Also The pizza deal was paid by the inmate commissary money we did not contribute. I also heard it was for the staff. "Does this daycare center" protect the men that if they bite down get there teeth knocked out? Sorry the system stinks but what can we really do?

The take-out pizza was not for the staff. There is NO reasonable purposes that take out pizza should be delivered to a jail. What was the incompetent administration thinking? Word has it, a Female Captain was behind it. The buck stops at the Colonel.
Then lets talk about movie and treat night. Something we might do for our young children at home.
Regardless of guilt or innonence, jail is not supposeto be a place of comfort. The Charlottesville Jail supplies many "COMFORT ITEMS". This comfort treatment contributes to crime because there is little to no fear about going to jail.

You have a valid response. but what about human descents? I only know what I read and hear from people that have been incarcerated. And they never said "I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK" They where degraded humiliated and scarlett letter for eternity. even the innocent. We all as a society shy away from a person once they said "Ive been in jail" We as humans need to remember everybody has a story. And just because we may not agree They own it.

I myself have been in the jail also and it is not as comfortable as you think. The takeout pizza and a movie is a reward to a block that has been the most clean, civil, and respectful. It is rewarded one time a month to only one block. You do realize alot of people are in there for very stupid stuff and being in there could ruin there lives if they dont continue working. That program is also a reward and they dont give it to just anybody you have to qualify. Besides the murderers, rapist, and child molesters other people do deserve a chance to bounce back and change.

As a law abiding citizen, I have been in the Jail several times. I'm confident that my remarks are correct. Most staff are outraged.
The Administration is out of touch with reality. Most do not support or respect the Colonel running the daycare.
The Jail houses adults that should act like adults, and clean without having a reward. Act like an adult or once.
How many children were hungry on pizza night at the jail?

The Domino's Pizza was delivered for the Inmates only. It is not just about the pizza.
Its about a bunch of Idiots poorly operating my community jail. This issue in an indicator of worse issues.

"YOUR JAIL" wow you think alot of yourself. " cleanup on bed 5." Your a narcissistic person that regardless of what anyone said you {in your own mind are right so if you want to keep beating this dead horse. Stretch so you don't pull a muscle. My advice "DO SOMTHING ABOUT IT" go to the next cho/alb hearing. You will stand on your apple crate for oh about 3 second before they hand you all the bills to run the jail. Since It's your jail. Your measly taxes could not pay for a day they charge. So have a wonderful today and better tonight...

Granted jail should not be a comfortable place but if inmates are not given these stress releivers then jail that so many of you complain about becomes a breeding ground for animals. I went to jail as a young man who made a mistake and after two year I returned a criminal who learned more ways to break to the law. Sp yes give inmates tv give the things to cut down on the stree. Crime and drugs won't stop it the american way

People can be treated in a respectful and humane manner without all the extras. People should care about going to jail but NOT in Charlottesville.
Here are some examples that make the Charlottesville Jail the "Hilton on the Hill"
1.Delivered Pizza
2.Big Screen Televisions
3. Cable Television
4.Personnal Hand Delivery of washed clothing and linens.
5.Officers feed meals unlike other jails were inmates do the feeding and want to. Another personnal touch!
6. Officers take out trash when Inmates could do it and want to. Another personnal touch!
7.Inmates complaints against staff even petty
complaints are believed. We want you to return!

Here's an idea, 23 and a half hours a day in a cell. you get a half hour to take a shower and exercise. No tv, radio, smoking or any other extra comfort. If you want to have more time out of your cell, maintain a B average in classes taught either ged or college. That's how jail should be.

Well Dru, you're obviously another recpipent of the system instead of a contributor. If jail was such a bad place that you were afraid to go there, you might have become a valuable asset to society rather than a burden on taxpaying citizens.

Just out of curiosity, how many women call you "my baby daddy"?
