Jail vote reflects on sheriff's office

Forsyth County News
Sherrif Paxton’s whining about the jail being defeated again is a perfect example of his total lack of respect for the citizens of this county.

He wants a big new jail so he can fill it up with minor traffic offenders and drunks, thus supplementing his bloated operating budget.

If you don’t believe me, get pulled over some time. His deputies will treat you like a major drug smuggler.

I, for one, will never vote for a new jail in this county, regardless of where it is located, because of the way he and his deputies treat people.
