Well then, let's just open the doors and let them all out. Would that make the ACLU happy then?

You call it what you want to call it, I'll call it what I want to call it. It may not be what they want me to call it but appropriate considering their actions.

From this article:

_"The ACLU has argued it is unconstitutional to hold people who have been accused but not been convicted of a misdemeanor or state jail felony charge on bonds they cannot afford."_

Do you believe in equal justice for all JD?

Gary Miller

No JD. When ACLU gets something they think they didn't fight for enough. Their list never ends.

From the article:

_"“As the administrative judge for the county courts, I can assure you that every reasonable concern and demand made by the ACLU either has been or is being addressed,” Ewing said."_

So clearly there were problems which are now being addressed thanks to the ACLU stepping up to defend the indigent. Thanks ACLU. You are doing a commendable service for our community.
