TJP Commentary
Waller County Jail keeps failing inspections but the county does nothing to fire Sheriff Glenn Smith. He should have been relieved from his position years ago when Sandra Bland died here and he tried to do everything in his power to prevent the FBI from investigating her death. But instead of changing the sheriff, the county seems to have hired a public relations firm which has crafted a message of "we know we have a culture problem in our jail and we working to fix it". The Sheriff's words at the Jail Commission's quarterly meeting in August of 2018.
