  1. Had the wonderful experience of having to deal with these folks in the Cherokee County Jail when trying to bail a friend out of jail.

    They made me stand out in the cold while waiting for a sheriff to bring my friends debit card to me so I can use it to get some of the bail money.

    They also gave me the wrong information and informing me that we could bail said person out around 4am when in fact it was actually 6am (poor babies had shift change and couldn’t be bothered to do anything between the hours of 4am and 6am).

    After that they made us wait for an hour after I give them the money to bail said friend out to get them all setup and give them their possessions back and lead them out the door.

    I get that these folks have procedures to follow but when my friend tells me that there were close to 10 of them standing around and watching YouTube videos and not doing anything while we were waiting out in the cold or waiting for them to be released, that peeved me a little bit. I spent close to 6 hours in Cherokee County Jail waiting on something that should have taken, at most 2 to 3. Our tax dollars at work I guess.

    I have respect for officers and firemen and those who work to protect and help us, I really do, but I think the respect should be mutual and they should give accurate information as well as keep those trying to bail the people out informed about where they are in the process and when they can come and get the person out rather than telling them that they have to wait until a later time and giving us little to no information.
