TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY JAIL SHUT DOWN THREAT LOOMS AS LEGISLATURE MOVES TO VETO EXECUTIVE FRANK WHITE'S TASK FORCE IN FAVOR OF MORE IMMEDIATE ACTION!!!
Insiders warn that the situation at the Jackson County jail is beyond a crisis and has now moved to a full blown disaster.
Here's the latest . . .
FEAR OF A FULL SCALE JACKSON COUNTY JAIL SHUT DOWN THREATENS THE COURTHOUSE AS GUARDS, INMATES AND ADMINISTRATORS PROTEST DANGEROUS CONDITIONS!!!
And still there's a political impasse that COURTHOUSE INSIDERS have noted on our blog community FIRST . . .
BEHIND THE SCENES - THE LEGISLATURE MOVES TO VETO EXEC FRANK WHITE'S JAIL TASK FORCE!!!
Nixing the proposed task force will be the latest and greatest slap in the face against the Exec as a months long feud now reaches a boiling point on an issue that really is life and death not just a budget line item.
Like it or not, the Legislature has been proven correct in their warnings about the human rights crisis at the jail and two guards attacked in recent months is the tipping point in an ongoing dispute about jail management.
Inside word on the topic:
"Another study isn't going to work right now. We're at the point of losing control of the jail and facing more serious consequences for how things are going down there . . . Nothing short of immediate staffing changes and a complete overhaul will be effective."
There's fear the Feds will pull their inmates first rather than risk lawsuits.
The protest of guards dropping shifts in a quasi-"blue flu" could worsen the situation to the point where the jail is no longer tenable by local authorities . . .
And while talk of Fed or State takeover circulates . . . Courthouse Insiders share a widely-held perspective which demands accountability . . .
"The buck stops with Frank White in terms of the situation at the jail . . . He entered politics based on his baseball legacy and that's fine but the consequences here are bigger than losing a few ball games. You have guards severely beaten and clinging to life. The conditions for the inmates are still inhumane. But the current administration isn't acting with any sense of urgency. This is beyond a crisis. It's a catastrophe for Jackson County and we need leadership from Frank White. If he can't provide it, maybe he should think about another career."
