Marion County Adjustment Center Complaint - Health/fire hazard
ST, MARYS, KENTUCKY -- I am concerned for the health and well being of the inmates and there visitors as I also make visits each and every week.This is a very old building,which needs to be condemned.They don't have air conditioning in the building,where visitations are allowed and it feels as if it is 120 degrees inside. The fire department has been there only to tell the inmates to unplug the extension cords before they leave the room, because the wiring is so bad.While they have SAP classes each inmate has a fan plugged into an extension cord,which are all connected. The inmates which are trying to better themselves seem to be the ones getting punished. The Department of Corrections were there to inspect,but was made to believe the inmates had kool-aid to drink on hot days,which never happens and hasn't happened since.This is inhumane, even animals have to be in
air conditioning. The families are being punished along with the prisoners.The inmates which aren't trying to better themselves can lay around soaking
up the cool air only because they are in a building which has air and I feel they should be treated equal.
I feel the funds are being misused,because this is a privately owned facility,and the property desperately needs updated for safety purposes.The building also has asbestos in the ceiling and floor tiles.
