  1. I was in the gcj 4days after being beat in the head the head head being smashed into the ground. I didn’t eat use the bathroom or anything if my neighbor hadn’t kept calling the jail to check one letting me know she was taking care of my dog. I couldve died as well medical still didn’t see me until ten days later when the booking officer who changed me into my uniform worked the floor and made sure i recieved medical treatment. I belie3 someone should look into that its more to the story.

  2. That jail is nasty I believe they probably did have someone die in that place they kept me there for 3days to long all because they had a computer error I had to kick on the door for 6 hours straight finally lt came in they realized they screwed up pack me up and let me go. The officers treat people in jail w zero respect and half of them don’t do nothing anyways.
