So the temporary jail is like a revolving door.
Just like the courts with Peters-Baker's incompetence and the sentences handed down by the "restorative justice" judges.
In-out and back on the streets.
How many repeat offenders are arrested month after month?
A sad and dangerous perpetual motion machine.

City/Misdemeanor arrests can be just as violent as Felony arrests. Can you believe a city this size has no city owned jail? What are the city leaders thinking?

Well, who called it "temporary".... seems to me they're just being accurate.

Leg irons would be a quick fix as a temporary measure while building a secure facility.
