Man accused of Snyder threat preferred Massachusetts jail to Martin County ‘slum’

by George Bennett | February 18th, 2011


Manuel Pintado, charged with threatening the life of state Rep. William Snyder, R-Stuart, over Snyder’s immigration bill, is back in Massachusetts after his sister posted a $40,000 bond to free him from the Martin County Jail while he awaits trial, reports.

Pintado’s minister told the publication that the 47-year-old University of Massachusetts student didn’t care for the accommodations in Martin County.

“He said the Hampshire County jail is like the Hilton compared to the slum they had for a jail in Florida,” Rev. Mark Seifried said in the article.

    I must agree. Martin county jail is a ghetto slum. Its like being in Riv Beach and surrounded by steel bars on all sides. It is packed with black criminals.

  2. Jerry P. Says:

    I am so glad to hear that this guy has so much experience in jails that he knows a good one from a bad one. Maybe the one he is sentenced to will be to his liking.

    Are we suppose to say, “OMG, are you kidding? We need to do something about this.” NO! Good, it’s not suppose to be nice. By the way, the last time I stayed at a Hilton, it never crossed my mind that I was being held against my wishes
