It sounds like there are two problems:(1) punishments are too lenient and (2) bad foresight in planning the new jail.
Even if the jail does get built and current offenders have a place to get locked up, this won't be the case one and two years down the line as Concord grows in population.
The new jail needs a different, larger location that will allow for adequate expansion. It doesn't have to be far away from downtown, just not sandwiched into such a small space.
There are acres and acres of vacant land on all sides of downtown concord. How about a little reality check for the future capacity needs of the jail.
And how about a little vision for the downtown Concord area. Attorney offices are fine, but visually, all you see right now is bail bonding places and by placing the jail downtown, these types of 'retail tenants' will increase. They will suffocate the new and growing tenants such as bakeries, coffee shops, actual retail stores, restaurants - everything that could make for a nostalgic and vibrant center city. Make downtown a destination for people other than criminals that need bailing out!
