  1. Mr Thurner i worked for tdcj for 6 yrs. I’ll give you that one on the tattoo paraphernalia because ive seen things like that. Now explain to me why he dosent get his medication. I took it to the jail and gave it to the nurse. Explain to me why he didnt recieve a newspaper for 6 weeks. Also explain to me how 2 money orders showed up the day after i called and complained. If you can explain these 3 things ill will gladly be on your team. Thank You Sir.

    • Eddie, if you worked for TDCJ for 6 years I think you know the answer as well as I do. These guys are not like the Officers in TDCJ, that I can tell you. At the same time I am not sure that the county Officers are dealing with the same type of Inmate/Offender you watched over in TDCJ, these inmates are mostly short-timers, pulling their own hair wanting out now, still with a taste of freedom in their mouths, I imagine they behave in some ways less violently or fatalistic as a TDCJ Offender might, but probably more demanding in some ways, yes I know that would be hard to imagine given the demanding nature of TDCJ Offenders. What I am saying is that a County Jail Officer might become somewhat de-humanized with their power over someone else. All of these issues you listed are far too common of County Jail mailrooms all over Texas.

  2. The grimes county jail is a joke. My son has been locked up sense mid oct 2017. He is on anti depressant meds that he does not recieve. I paid for him a subscription to the bryan newspaper which after 6 weeks he never recieved one paper. Two weeks of commissary money orders never showed up after i called the next day they both magically appeared. He was given 30 days in seg for being found with tattoo paraphernalia. If he was stripped searched when he was arrested i would like ti know where he got it. Thank you.

    • Eddie, lmao, dude they can make tattoo paraphernalia out of nothing buddy, The staple out of a magazine or religious pamphlet will be sharpened and used as a pic for tats, ink is super easy to make there are lots of ways to “pop” plugs and start a small fire to burn hair gel for the soot to make ink out of when combined with shampoo. Criminals find a way to break the rules no matter where you put em…

  3. I was locked up for 6 months for back child suport and this was my 1st time to ever be in any kind of trouble. At first they made me a trustee and i followed every rule.one day i was empting trash cans and a lady was watching an ” interview ” on a tv as it was happening. I asked an officer if i should wait to vaccume and he said yes so i took the teash to the dumpster when several officers came walking my way and asking “” where is it. “” i didnt know what they were talking about. And again where is it we know you took it. It just so happens that the lady watching the interview had lost her cell.phone and i must have taken it. I was searched and they called the number and nothing. It turns out the phone was in her car and i went back to work. The next day a guard said i was caught smoking and i was no longer a trustee. One i was put into population it was great except for the ammount of food you get. Each day i took meds twice and on one day the pill didnt look the same so i questiond the nurse . She said just take it and i did but the next day the pill was back to normal and for several days but once again a different pill was given to me so i hid it so when i got out i wanted to know what they were giving me. About a month went by and they found the pill and i told the sergent the story behind it and he and i made an aggreement that we would let it go. Soon after that i was getting no meds at all. I cant miss my meds for over a day or i dont act normal. I was on about day 4 with no meds and i finally threatend the jail staff that i would tell about the trustees that replaced me that they were cleaming out the evidence room and found chrystal meth . The guys had already been caught and blood tested and all 3 were in trouble but nobody on the outside knew and i was going to expose the jail. Well they finally put me in isolation and gave me my meds and i never got to even go outside of isolation once. 24/7. I didnt mention that we had all been moved to a new tank when i was in general population and there was black mold on the walls in the shower area. I.asked for a rubber glove to clean it and the guard told me to just clean it. I said im not about to touch mold. Then he tried to force me to do it as all 13 other inmates looked on and i said no again. The guard took all 13 outside and 3 guards came into the tank with only me and them. They told me i will clean it and i told them that forced labor was very illegal and i want to make a call. They pulled me up front to the chapel and held a mickey mouse court and told me it was like a small court and i was being recorded. About 6-7 people were in the room and i said i will never do any kind of labor for the jail and if they tey to force me then i will bring a law suit upon the jail. Once i was in isolation things were very nice but i didnt have a tv just a shower. , bed , toilet and i wasnt given a mop but once a week. The guards at this jail are worse than the inmates. They try very hard to get you into trouble so you can get time added on. NOT ALL GUARDS. Sergent Trent was very nice as well as Jesse and Lisa . They are an asset to the jail. All in all i would give this jail a “”D”” if i had to grade it but i had never been in jail before so i have nothing to compair it too. God forbid you try to do the right thing in jail because they will look.for a way to get you. As i look back I am a much worse person then I was going in. I never did mind cops but now i look at them as the enemy. There ya go. My story.

    • I believe you the jail is not run very well my son is there now thanks have come up missing from his property like when I mail him a letter with phone numbers for his friends to call I mailed it he never received it I also started sending magazines to him I guess they don’t understand when you send one from the internet it is tracked it showed it had been delivered the day before when I confronted them they said there must be a mistake they could not find it and I already been told that it was on the jailers desk they argued and argued for almost 30 minutes on the phone till I explain to them they have a tracking number and it showed a delivery then magically they found the magazine…. since my son arrest he has started taking blood pressure medication I left a message over a month ago for the nurse to call as a parent I was concerned about what he was taking and wanted to pay for it but got no answer from anyone…. they have one employee who was caught stealing food from the jail kitchen he is still a jailer there are a few people there who care but not enough….. I have filed a complaint on the conditions at the jail with the proper authorities they will be investigating…. if you have someone who’s incarcerated there you need to keep in close contact and find out how they’re treated they are still supposed to be innocent until proven guilty and have rights we cannot let people abused these rights
