    Oh no.  The Fayette County folks would not have the equipment or clearance to do it.  The Feds, however, have a serious capability and interest in being able to make a record of every mobile call in the area near a prison.  That doesn't mean they record or listen to every call.  It means they can tell you what number called what other number, what time and duration.  If something becomes interesting with that data, they can and will run a "trap" on a phone so that it does actually record the calls it makes.
    The Feds do not routinely share that information with local law enforcement. 
    Sort of a weak trolling attempt by you.  Sarcasm is the tool of the weak minded; plus, I actually do know what I'm talking about.  Try again another time though!

    I understand how you would think that what you are saying is true.  However, it is quite simple to very narrowly block frequency bands and jailers and police would still have free use of restricted frequencies.  Problem is that the FCC does not allow this sort of jamming. Not even for prisons.
    See this story:
    http://money.cnn.com/2016/04/07/technology/prison-cell-phones/
    Why does the FCC stand in its own way?  Because of obstruction from Federal sources that benefit from the mobile phones in prisons as an intel source.  FBI, Homeland, NSA, etc.
    IN fact, at a moments notice, the Feds are able to set up local systems they can monitor in certain areas.  Semi-permanent systems are near certain neighborhoods with populations worth watching.  An event can have a temp system set up (for example a protest for legalizing pot).
    Only rarely do the Feds share intel from those systems.  But when they do, the local cops can't say where the info comes from.  So they have to manufacture a fake source.  Then the job for prosecuters is to press for guilty plea to prevent the chain of evidence from being questioned.
    What I am saying is the problem can be solved.  If they really wanted to solve it.

    President Obama in his tenure.
    Exitied 2 Trillion dollars wars.  Good for a country $20Trillion in debt.  No point pissing more dollars into the sands of western Asia. 
    Took what Bush gave him and turned it into the great recession.  Why is it good ?  The alternative was total global economic collapse sending the planet into the second dark ages.   That is what we avoided. Obama spent 6 trillion dollars aovid the dark ages.  Too much?  how much doesit cost to crawkl out of the dark ages?  
    Extended health care to millions of Amercans.  Until Age 26, no exclusion for pre-existing conditions. 
    All in opposition is stone walling do nothing congress.  Really?  Wht did they do ?  Any thing notable ?  
    Fox news reports the GoP majority confgress, the approaval rating is 14%.  GoP majority, free hand to move things forward,  do nothing,  collective approaval rating 14%. 
    You need to actually work hard at it to maintain a approval rating under 20%.  
    Should the GoP ffigure out congress before they take on the presidency.  Last GoP president hosted the real 911,  entered 2 trillion dollar wars, and hosted the entry to global economic collapse. 
    Not really some thing you want ot try to build the compelling case for leadership on. 
    Obamas approavla rating?  Over 50%. More than half of all American,  according to FoxNews think Obama is doing a good job. 
    Trump?  Was a democrat from 2001 until 2009.  Indepent 2  years after that.  Gop for 5 years since.  Hardly strong conservative credentials.  
    Declared bankruptcy for 6 big business all bearing the Trump name. 
    Tax dodger.  Ok?  No not OK.  WHy ?  Imagine if Clinton had not released hers what would the GoP say ?  So no,  not OK. 
    Draft dodager - bought multiple deferments. But still happy to criticsize John McCain, Navy Pilot. Shot down, survived, captured, Tortured.  Trump cannot respect him.    Is that all PoWs?  Of just McCain?  WWII or just 'nam? 
    Trump is selling doom and gloom and he is selling himself as the fix. 
    I do not buy the doom and gloom and I do not buy the fix. 
    But the American Nazi Party enthuusistically endorses Trump. The ANP is all in on Trump.

    Problematic.   It is going to be a little problematic. 
    There was a SPLOST for west fayetteville bypass,  You know,  the road that goes directly to Pinewood Studios and the mini city they will build there.  
    I remember a particularly vocal oppoenent to completeing the road and some how the revneue from the SLPOST the income the funages,  went somewhere else.  the road was never completed.     
     
    They called it the road to nowhere - it goes directly to Pinewood Studios. And te city to be build there.  Right down next t othe hsop[ital.  
    Through concentrated focus extended effort and lobbying,  they killed the final stage. 
    If you are going to the hospital from the south side it would save minutes on that journey.   
    They killed it.  I always thought it was singluarly unnatural the oppostion t othe final stage of that road.  Unnatural. 
    Now I see a new SPLOST. A project list.  I like it,  I vote for it.  Wat is my assurance that any of the wrok will ever get done?    
    In the last one they did 2/3 of the work and ended up with 1/10 of the value. 
    What will I get this time?  
    I think any SPLOST in Fayette County is going to be a very hard sell. 
    Oh,  Comissioner Brown lead the charge. Unnatural.

    Upside the head                                                 OK, fine. Upside the head. I guess that's a sentence or at least a phrase. Not sure why we have to tolerate this redneck writing except that it is totally 100% free and the Citizen reports all the news that's fit to print , so there is that. 
     
                                                                           Upside the head - whack the uncle this time. What a loser.

    So secret agent.  Your under the impression that the Detectives at the Fayette County Sheriff's Dept.  have the time or interest to play Big Brother to the jail inmates even after they already have them in jail?  Jamming cell phones and intercepting cell phone numbers and conversations?  Uh, one too many secret agent movies maybe

    Jamming Cell Phones
    That then means the Jailers loose their abilities to communicate, Cell Phones also operate at Frequencies that Two Way Radios operate in. The lesson here is simple, Government can not keep people from breaking the law, ya can ban anything ya want, but if someone is determined to have/do a thing they WILL find a way, (Just ask an Aussie, how that gun ban is working out for them)

    Absolutely let's help the elderly with their Homes, THAT is what we need to do, as neighbors, and as just plain out "right". The Habitat Home, NO not in Fayette, you even point out the foreclosure issue, We are NOT a "starter home" county, There's plenty of places in Coweta, South Fulton, Cobb, Douglas Henry etc, Consider the kids in that home, mom and dad are lower income, yet the kids are going to have to go to school with much higher income kids, and you KNOW how cruel kids can be especially if you're not wearing the "in" clothes. Yes I know I sound like a snob, but the truth is STILL the truth, right or wrong humans divide themselves up economically, and when ya start mixing the two, it NEVER ends well. heck even I know I have NO BUSINESS what so ever moving to Whitewater or Smoke Rise,

    This problem with cell phones can be easily fixed with technology.  Jamming cell phones locally is a thing.  Currently not allowed by Fed Law, but I think waivers could be approved for jamming within a prison.
    Why don't they do it then?
    I think it's because law enforcement like to collect the numbers and conversations for investigative purposes.  
    Is the intel worth the side effects of proliferation of mobile phones in our prisons?  That is worthy of discussion I think.

    Jessie Habitat for Humanity is a charity, I do like the effort to fix homes for elderly or disabled. When my kids were younger our church was involved with helping an elderly lady on White Road fix up her home. I also understand that the new homes do require a mortgage and sweat equity and Habitat has forclosed on some homes where the payments are not made
