  • Great job and good points.

    I've made that same argument about the jail. Our crime rate had to be increasing yet every time they release that info it's down.....hmmm. it has to be drug related. Opiods are likely the biggest reason our jail population is that high. Also the fact that the price tag is high and the amount of time to recoup the cost.

    Hopefully the new felony larceny law will have some effect on jail time. We also need to at the very least decriminalize Marijuana. I see people every day being locked up for possession of an ounce for "distribution."

  • Bill,  Thanks for mentioning Kent. Kent Wingfield was a great guy. You never heard him talking about others and was always willing to help out. I've known him and his family all my life as we live in the same neighborhood. When we built our home back in '94, I hired him to do the Plumbing and he did an excellent job. Just an all around good ole boy. He will be missed around here.

  • Thanks LP, and appreciate the kind words about Kent, Youngblood. He did work for me and we had become friends over the years. He was born in June of 1960 and I was born that November. He was indeed, a good guy.

  • So sorry for the loss of your friend, Bill! Good job on the piece about the jail. It blows my mind to think of incarceration as a business, but I think you hit the nail on the head with that story! I've subscribed to your YouTube Channel! =)

  • A fine beginning and a report well done. I look forward to more video reports.

    BTW
    As a follow up, you might look at the private companies profiting from growing incarceration rates too. Are we paying any to take local inmates?

    Thats a good note, Solon. There has been issues with that in central Virginia; getting inmates transferred from the city jail to the private facilities once its clear that they don't have legal counsel to probate their original sentence. Its intended to help the public jails to prevent overcrowding.
