Your Turn: Your Feedback On Fees, Deputy & Jail


Governor Cuomo wants to raise money for the state, so he's proposing a hike in fines and fees for traffic tickets:


Excellent idea...I pay less tax, in theory.

This state is turning to a suck you dry state.

It's simple. Don't break the law and you don't have to worry about paying.

A Jefferson County sheriff's deputy took an open bottle of alcohol out of a fellow deputy's patrol vehicle and threw it into a field. That's according to reports about the Sheriff's Department's handling of Deputy Adam Hallett's case. The reports give no indication that Sheriff John Burns ordered that Hallett be tested for drunk driving:


I am ashamed at the poor judgment of the sheriff.  Burns should be sanctioned for allowing what amounts to a free pass for that deputy.

If this had been any other private citizen, they would have been arrested and in jail.  Yes, they need to look into the Sheriff's Department!

Burns should rewrite that Eric Clapton song, "I shot the Sheriff." The new lyrics could be, "I shot the deputies (or at least I wanted to), so leave the Sheriff alone..."

Overcrowding in the Jefferson County Jail is getting worse. A record number inmates is being housed at other jails at a cost of 100 dollars a day per inmate:


Why don't we build a much bigger jail and bring inmates in from other counties? Let's make money in stead of spending money!

Is it possible we are putting too many of our population in prison?

The best thing to do is to lower the crime rate.

Think about putting some locks on the doors of each room of the Mercy Hospital and utilize that for the criminals.
