Fix the jail we have now, I remember the old jail , that made ppl not want to be there and learn from their mistakes . They now have it better than homeless ppl and others working to pay their bills . Stop helping them by giving them the best when others have less . Tired of taxes going up to pay for them to have better than citizens who follow the law.
