  1. if more inmates start recording what goes on in prison between staff and inmates ALL he'll is gonna break loose.

  2. It's 2017… they use crooked guards to move in contraband…. and they also use "drones" to drop phones into prison yards…do your homework folks 👌

  3. i was in there with a kid having multiple seizers and they wouldent do shit… sat in that bitch 9 hrs ..they all fat as fuck up in there… probably cant make it in the field

  4. Polk county crooked af. This happening for years. They all crooked. Same fam owns the jail owns the court. its all about cash they DON'T GIVE A FUCK about no one. Go in undercover and see for yourself. It doesn't matter til it happens to you.

  5. The guards sitting around playing with their self while watching female inmates showering , most of them are nasty ass preverts.

  6. From the local cops, sheriff's, prosecutors and judges they all are very crooked and will do and make up anything for a conviction even if they have evidence that you didn't do the crime it's a money thing and they refuse to look bad after they done did a lazy investigation and convicted a innocent person

  7. Sheriff Judd has personally threatened to make things hard on one bail bondsman for complaining about all the lazy slackers that work at book in. They are notorious at dragging their feet. We need a new sheriff bad!!

  8. Wasn't a crooked cop that gave him the phone, just a dumb one. As for guards getting contrband in, yes that is 100% accurate. Was just in there last month January and the guards bring in k2, lighters, meth.. You name it they have it in there. The place is really fucked up. But like they say, you don't like it, don't so nothing to get put in there.

  9. This is always what happens with liberal workers who always just play games on there computers and watch porn day after day.

  10. I hope they are charging that stupid fricken negro for contraband. That's a felony you fricken moron. i hope they use YOUR OWN video to convict you. That would be some great KARMA.

  11. this is how they treat people for misdeameanor offenses for traffic, and small offense treat you worst then a dog, i call it police brutality and corruption in polk county

  12. What the media doesn't know, is that those contraband phones are smuggled in and sold to the inmates BY the jail staff, including COs. Sure, some might be suitcased in by family and friends during visitation, but most are brought in and sold by jail workers.

  13. Yea polk county sucks ass everyone say its tha worst jail around there. People have pills, drugs, all kind of shit on them I saw someone snort drugs in tha book in cell. And everytime they take AT LEAST 12hours to get you booked in and to tha annex. THEY DONT CARE if you ask for toilet paper they take forever hours to give it to you and its right there! Shit is crazy.

  14. there need to be someone to keep a eyes on them if the phone was not there the would get away with this just like all the others time now you have the prove many have said no one would not lesion to us and polk country lie about before saying we were make thing s up some were put back into jail

  15. if the inmates did not have the phone how much more would be going on the inmates did not do nothing wrong your cop's did and you trying to justify what he did was wrong when the truth about this is you and the cop's and government worker's brackin the law and are rights did wrong we want 24 hours of vedos of you people worker's doing your jod you that is busted we have the prove to have these cop's removed from there job and we want to see this cop in front of a justice to pay fines and jail time for brackin the law and are rights

  16. South county jail is dirty and the toilets stopped up and they have maggots coming out of the toilets. They dont care about the inmates safety they will put you back in the same area where you was attacked at. We need to get this jail investigated to see what is really going on.. 😢😢😠

  17. polk county jail is being sued BIG TIME…….torts already filed…..good luck getting an attorney who can defeat the constitution….hahahahahaha

  18. we the people see this person did nothing wrong you people not doing your job is doing wrong we the people want to see Avery thing that going no you just prove to us your not doing your job

  19. Policy vs. public interest. Inmate paid his taxes. He is entitled to record his experience and how his tax dollars are spent. Does the jail video camera (if any still existing) match the jailed citizen's record. Why all the sudden – this is how public servants unmonitored behavior is in real life.
    Sheriff should be thanking this citizen for documenting what is reality. Not what Capt.s, Majors, Lt.s verbally brief the Sheriff with political self serving internal political agendas.

  20. SHUT UP STUPID BITCH YOUR IDIOT COWORKERS GOT BUSTED NOW YOU WANNA TRY DEFEND THEM GLAD YOU ALL GOT CAUGHT DAM LOWLIFE PIECE OF SHIT

  21. I've actually been there in Bartow and they were worse girls sat on their phones all night and did nothing. After they sent me to annex they tried to say i wasn't booked yet and couldn't post bail. Why? Because I had cash on me and the longer they keep you they are allowed to keep the cash in your wallet. Not until I had my brother come up there and threaten with a lawsuit did my booking information magically appear in 20 seconds and i was out after 2 days of bs within 2 hours. They are crooked and lazy and should be investigated fully. But it will be an internal investigation and the whole system is as crooked and lazy so nothing will happen

  22. Polk County has been doing this for years…there is no reason that it takes 12+ hours to get booked in to a jail…there is no reason for it to take a person 16 hours to be able to be bonded out on a misdemeanor charge…there is no reason except the money that they get per inmate that is booked in at certain times.

  23. I was pulled out of my dorm at 9:45am and sat in that holding cell until 4am the next morning without being fed.

  24. Oh how awful! A CELL PHONE! EWW…..they could swallow the batteries! Throw it at a guard! SO wonderful this was exposed I feel safer now

  25. I'd like to know how inmates would even want a lighter? My understanding is that all prisons have eliminated smoking on premises even for guards ….no?
