Abilene, Abilene, Meanest Jail I Ever Seen!

Oct 14th, 2008 | By | Category: Taylor County

The TEXAS HELLHOLE AWARD was presented, October 15:

“In Sad Recognition of the TAYLOR COUNTY JAIL

…..which fails to provide a safe and humane environment for the fathers, mothers, wives, husbands, sons and daughters of Abilene who are incarcerated there.”

Awarded by Diane Wilson and Diana Claitor co-founders of the Texas Jail Project

We had a great press conference & meeting with families in Abilene with good coverage by the media. Please go to News Stories on TX Jails, on this page, to see that. The press conference took place at the Taylor County Courthouse, 300 Oak Street, by veterans statue, Abilene, Texas.

Original notice said:

We will present information about abuse and neglect over the past several years and as recently as this July. Family members of inmates and others will speak; we will sing, chant and march.

Bring your tambourine or drum, warm up your voice and tune up your guitar! Our own Gulf Coast ruckus raiser, Diane Wilson, will come to help us changeup the lockup!
