First of all, 300 beds? Too small.

No vision, waste of tax dollars.

Growth rate of the population alone, demands at least 600 bed building.

300 beds vs $80 million construction costs?

Fresno supervisors better wakeup, land use of that site, demands better use of tax dollars along with better use of $80 grant money.

Start over and get better designer, its liken to building one lane freeway today, when you know you need at least four lanes.

Stop the project..

State death roll: takes up now two buildings. Judge has ordered the department of corrections to release 33,000 inmates into society.

Building these expensive projects within our counties, is waste of tax dollars.

Do your job, clean up the death roll as the public wants.

It will make room for the ever increasing inmate population.

Wake up people, our elected leaders are not doing their jobs.

Why is the death roll population growing?

System is broken.

Valley agencies PROTECT children from predators!

While our JUDGES! Order our agencies to release 33,000 inmates into our streets.

IRONY of it all.

Life time convicts like Charles NG who kill children, marines, live each day in our so called death row prisons.

They will never face the lethal injection, as the jury of the people asked for.


System is broken.

Stop these projects,$80 million for 300 bed jail?

Waste of time and money.
