In the Crook County Jail, the minimum price for a phone call is $7.00 - THIS IS NUTS!


Preckwinkle spokesman says Dart pushed for multi-million dollar contract with the company Securus which charges inmates over 7 dollars for a phone call. Just in the last three years Securus technologies has profited more than 10 million dollars from the Cook County jail.

Im not from Chicago but if it's anything like Louisville I bet there is a hell of a profit being made on home arrest monitors.. costs the Folks on house arrest 16 bucks a day . I dont have much sympathy but it seems the City makes money everytime some butt wipe gets House arrest.

If the county charges $7 a call, what does governor potatohead get in the state prisons?

Private enterprise

Seven bucks a call that’s cheap compared
to what the prison guards used to charge.
some of them had ten cell phones hanging
from their belts and charged at least
ten bucks.

If there was any kick back/campaign donations this has to be investigated. This is exactly the bullshit that this hypocritical Dart has seemed to be able to dodge since his election. His and Connellys hiring and promotional practices should be investigated along with contractual services.

Why wasnt this put up for bid ??

Ouch. Talk really isn't cheap if it comes from the Chicago lockup.

Open an investigation on the contracts for the whole department !!

Investigate his Shakman compliance !!

Investigate the Evictions Unit where preferential treatment has been given to certain Lawyers and Law Firms !!

Investigate the investigators that are allegedly accused of racial harassment!!

Investigate Mr. Dart to get to the truth of these ongoing unlawful practices that are so common in the Cook County Sheriffs Department!!

Speaking of Preckwinkle, has she done anything about the overflowing DNS yet? Summer is coming and those rotting people sure aren't going to start smelling any better with the heat.

I'm quite sure that the Taxpayers are being hosed somehow for this too, by the Communists [DEMOCRATS] They're probably getting a cut of the Crook Co. Jail phone call costs, plus HOSING the Taxpayers for the calls too. Nothing these fucking Skunk-Fuck DEMOCRATS do is Legit.

If Dart was smart he'd just keep repeating that its all for the children, that seems to keep Chicago's "investigative" reporters at bay.

Kinda high but then again the democrats want to raise cigarette taxes again, so we're dealing with mental midgets in crook county.

It's a good thing you don't have to make a phone call to vote for Obama.

Shaved: I know you don't like Dart, neither do I for that matter. However, that company gave the county jail state of the art equipment that has helped county and any agency which requests help. If one needs help with anything related to phones and inmates contact the Intelligence Section of the Sheriff's Police. As I have said, they are very helpful.
Ps, I do not work for county.

Why would you say its nuts? Is there a kick back? sure is but to be honest... good, fuck em I work there in a max division ( not going to say which division it is) since Ive been working the for 10+ Ive noticed and seen alot. If these lil fucking GD latin king, count and vice lord mother fuckers can sell drugs kill rape car jack etc get money on their books for commisary every week buying $50-80 on cookies chips or tortillas (cook in their cells,another story) and fucking beef jerky then these fucking harvard graduates have the $ for $7 phone calls while they take our tax money over n over plugging the courts with their fucking bullshit continues and appeals.oh and lets not forget their fucking cute lil lawsuits when they act like who they are and end up at stroger hosptial getting put back together or getting an officers boot pulled out their ass on the taxpayer dime. all because this lil stand up M.I.T. graduate couldnt stay out to be a clean up worker and decided to throw shit/piss on an officer oh i got sum stories for you. believe me you will be screaming "charge them $14 a fucking minute"

Telephones/payphones in prisons are very big business. Back in the 1990s, in a state unnamed, it was reported that each payphone would bring in around $100,000 per year.

Where all that money went is a good task for DSLC or Paul at CFN.

These are shithead inmates Shaved, CPD put most of them there. Why are you defending them. If they dont pay I'm sure Preckwinkle will give them free phone calls on our tax money, then they can call their lawyers and sue us and call IAD and beef on us all on our dime.

As long as there is no corruption in the $$$, I suppose they should stay out of jail to get cheaper phone calls.

I would give the county state of the art equitment too if they gave me a bull shit 10 million dollar contract.

This has nothing to do with the mutt inmates moron. Its about dart, preckwinkle, and a corrupt system that awards millions in political kickbacks.

say it aint so tommy. Your OPR guys call black women porch monkeys and now you are stealing from poor black people. Rev. Jackson is going to be very upset with you.

you must be missing the point, it isnt about defending the animals that use the phone, its the bullshit that is hidden behind money being generated but our fucking taxes keep going up. Better question is, where were the proceeds spent, on which Tom Dart Hack?? Why was he pushing for this company and for Serucus to have the contract??
