Are you on drugs??? The current Sheriff is an ass. I've never been in any kind of trouble, not even a ticket. I've just known him for awhile & can't stand him or his wife.

John Merchant is a great sheriff as well as a great person. So is his wife. Anyone saying any different must not have the pleasure of personally knowing them.

All I can add is someone must have pointed out the threads on this forum because I have noticed that MOST of the law enforcement in Hiawatha & Brown County are starting to use their lights and sirens when responding to calls.

I am glad they made this decision. The purpose behind the law was it gives law enforcement a tool, & it protects the public.

Good job Hiawatha & Brown County! Keep it up.

So BBA, exactly what has this Sheriff and his wife done or not done that you don't like them? Do you really even know them both? I moved into town earlier this year and have gotten to know both of them, and am just wondering what I am missing here. Neither one have done anything to me or that I have seen wrong so far. They both work at jobs that make them visible in the community and I see them out and about and have never observed anything they are doing as illegal or wrong.

I have rec'd a ticket from Sheriff Merchant when he was a city officer. I still think the changes he has made are good further county. I hold no grudge, infact, we joke about it now. He is the RIGHT man for the job. Thanks go to him for being a stand up man.

John Merchant and his wife are good people. Those that say shit of them are just stupid and dumb.They just don't like it becuz he is making a difference whether you want to admit it or not. He has got alot done since he been in office. Bitch and gripe all you want of him and his staff cuz they going to slam your ass in jail next or you have been there already? Layoff John Merchant. I advise John Merchant keep up the great work and put it to the damn people when you get a chance.Shut the damn gossip and complaining bullshitters up quick.

I don't know anything about Cory Lay but I do know that there is wide spreed abuse going on in the jail with the Max inmates. They are being denied there rights.
there is a guard that has been screaming in their faces and calling them stupid trying to get them to get mad so they look violent.

The prisoners are not being violent and they have nothing to use against them in court so they are and have been tormenting them calling them names not allowing grevenc's and playing games with their mail.
These types of things are cruel and unusual punishment and abuse of power by a jailer. The prisoners have asked to see the sheriff but he will not see them either. What kind of a mini prison are they running when they are allowed to act above the law and get no punishment for it. That is why they have people in jail because they act above the law but it is OK for them?

What does anyone else think on this subject should this be allowed in our county treating prisoners or others in the community unjust? I think it needs to stop?

I think I'd have to know where you came up with all this stuff before I'd form any kind of opinion.

My info came from a good source at the jail but I won't revel the source whether it be guard or guarded but it happened and other thing like it as well. This new mini prison is not a good idea it give these guards
that have never had power over anyone power on the prisoners and they abuse it because no one corrects them when they get out of line. Also who is monitoring the guards someone should be obviously.

You're a moron. It's best you just say nothing at all Kat. It's better if you just sit back and remember how pathetic you are. Leave the discussions to the people who don't have a bias opinion about law enforcement. I was actually starting to enjoy not seeing your bullshit for a few days.
