I'm proud of the Sheriff's office for announcing this. No hiding their own flaws. Please, Sheriff Brown, have a press conference and tell us what your solution is. What is needed to make this a full stop? Name the problem; name the solution.

Is it true that guards aren't searched going on-duty? I wonder if TSA people are. Doesn't take much to bribe some people. If you can buy a US Congressman for $10K for his vote on a law that will make your corporation billions or save you millions, how much you figure non-wealthy guard costs?

Somebody snitched hard here! My guess is because they were bitter they weren't getting shared with. I would not want to be that person right now. Not only is snitching is a major no-no in jail, but depriving fellow inmates of this amount of fun goodies will no doubt enrage most of the inmate population.

This guy was arrested recently..my question is how is all this getting into the jail? I’m sorry to say he’s pretty good if was able to sneak that all in. I wonder if that girl that was also recently arrested with all the drugs on her is the one that had been bringing it to him?
