The real reason warrants aren't being processed is because the jail if over capacitance. I wish someone would research the numbers in this article. "A lot" of counties and "a lot" staff, can our Sheriff or reporters count? I suppose we spend a lot more money than a lot of surrounding counties on a lot of Camaros, too.
