Consider This: Fixing our jails

Source: WLBT Source: WLBT

Issues with the maintenance and management at Hinds County jail are creating safety and security challenges. People are pointing fingers, directing blame in all directions, but this issue is not just a Jackson issue; mismanagement happens in counties across the state.

Consider This:

There's probably enough blame that everyone can take on some of the responsibility for mishandling the situation. The most important thing right now it not who is at fault, we can deal with that later, just get it fixed.

Regardless of where you live, you deserve to feel safe. Criminals should be kept in a secure facility when they are arrested and jailed. There is no excuse for inept management and not maintaining these facilities. 

You can make a difference. If your police chief, sheriff or county board is not handling this important responsibility correctly, vote them out of office and elect someone who will.
