It's a jail, not a tourist attraction!

Before a person makes it to this jail they likely would have made use of all the rehab, half-way house(s) and soul searching facilities available to those convicted of crime. They didn't take advantage of the "redemption and revitalization" opportunities and is likely why they are sent to jai/prison. So, why go to the unnecessary expense in an attempt at style? Why not build a large tent area to immediately move & house any group that creates a problem, might be a way to keep everyone in line. Anyone in a group that screws up the entire group gets moved into tents! Style is not needed and is an unnecessary expense in constructing a jail facility.

Did the "Smart Growth" evaluators leave the DC area? What compass direction do they believe this city has room to "sprawl" towards?

Best way to minimize "outsider's" is to impose maximum allowable penalties on those convicted of involvement in this riot.

Juveniles, when allowed, charged as adults is great and impose the maximum (jail) penalty for the convicted offense(s) including restitution. Our judicial system needs to send a clear and loud message that behavior of this type will not be tolerated in this County.

ksba - I agree with your comments and it is the Police Chief and his inexperienced staff (lack of leadership) that are failing our city. Was it only because Biden may have driven through this area that its problems were finally addressed? We will soon know. Will needed enforcement in the area continue or will the vagrants control this area?

All Bideny did was eat and his foot probably didn't go into his mouth. What does Biden's wanna-be king say, "no news here, let's move on."

loon - I- suspect you will get your wish as it appears our brilliant police chief decided to "take the gloves off" just before a visit of the equally brilliant vice-president "bite me." Coincidence? We will have to wait and see how long this crackdown on the homeless continues after the VP visit. Sanchez committed to a "three week campaign" to see how things go and I suspect it will go back to homeless business as usual. This problem didn't just begin and it will be here well beyond the three week campaign and all through the summer. Sanchez appears to be clueless.

loon - if there weren't any urban travelers here it would be an indication the police department knew how to do its job by keeping them in check an not permitting them to do whatever they choose, wherever they choose. These people will migrate to an area that creates few problems for them.

Since when has it been "illegal" for police to ask a person to identify themselves. If a person is violating an ordinance or code why not ask for ID? If they are loitering in an area or citizens are being disturbed by their behavior simply ask them to move along, cite them or arrest them. If the people committing the reported violations had been dealt with properly from the beginning I doubt there would have been the number of arrests/citations recently reported. Problem is, in order for the cops on the street to know what to do they must have leaders that know what to do and when to act. It appears the Chief and his staff lack leadership, experience and knowledge in how to address this problem as it should have been addressed right after the initial complaints. People are committing the reported violations because police are not monitoring their behavior and taking action against negative behavior.
