 I recently spent twelve days in the Bullitt County Detention Center. During that time I saw several issues there that should be know to the taxpayers of the County and State.

They provide cable TV to inmates. I can’t afford cable TV at home, and I am sure many people statewide cannot. If the States wants to reduce their budget that would be one step in the right directions. Also I was denied TV privileges and others with more harsh crimes were able to watch it.

The food was not nearly enough for a grown man. I would compare it to a second or third grader’s lunch amount maybe. It was so cold in there you needed long underwear.

Also I had been taking medicine for panic attacks for seven years and because of their lack of professional medical staff, they denied me my medicine which caused a great deal of suffering.
