Trump to be booked in notorious Georgia jail

 August 17, 2023

Former President Donald Trump is set to be indicted in Georgia's Fulton County Jail, a location known for its overcrowding and other problems in the past.

The same location will be required for the other 18 defendants in the case as well, including Mark Meadows and Rudy Giuliani.

The situation

"Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has given the defendants until noon on Aug. 25 to surrender. When they do, they will be arrested and processed at the Fulton County Jail," the Washington Examiner reported.

"The detention center has a horrendous reputation in the state, and Trump supporters have already sounded the alarm online, claiming his life will be at risk if he's taken to the Atlanta facility," it added.

Fulton County concerns

"The Biden DOJ is currently investigating the Fulton County Jail for safety violations," Charles R. Downs wrote on Twitter.

"Despite this, the Democrats are going to force Donald Trump to be arrested at this dangerous facility. The deranged globalists are intentionally putting a president’s life in danger," he added.

Multiple problems

"Built in 1985 to house around 1,300 inmates, Fulton County Jail has held more than 3,000 people in recent years," the BBC reported.

"The jail provides 'unhygienic living conditions' that have led to outbreaks of Covid-19, lice and scabies, a report by the Southern Center for Human Rights said. It found inmates were 'significantly malnourished' and dealing with a condition called cachexia, also known as wasting syndrome," it added.

Some have even died while incarcerated in the Fulton County location, according to the report.

Trump and other defendants in the 2020 election case won't be there long but will see firsthand the ugly reality many of the area's convicted felons face.

The situation may backfire for Georgia, showing the poor condition of its jail instead of focusing on Trump.
