Harris County Jail dot com

The Houston Chronicle’s Web site offers future inmates a look at Harris lockup (archive) noted a new website, harriscojail.com.

The site, which is not affiliated with Harris County or the Jail in any way, offers information and advice from those having had the pleasure of past experience in Harris County lock up. The site is part of a growing franchise run by Jail Media, whose owner, Katie Nielsen started the project by after analyzing subjects that had inadequate links when people searched on search engines. Jail media has other sites for Cook County (Chicago), Orange County (the other OC) and Utah County.

The interviews, for which, Jail Media apparently pays, are terrible, but the question section is useful and anyone can comment.

My own first impression of Harris County lock up is still firmly ingrained. When I was in high school and visiting for the summer I would make deliveries with Sal, the delivery guy for my grandfather’s wholesale rose business. He would point at it from the freeway overpass with the 3 and half fingers left on his right hand and say ‘bad place, bad place’.
