Paint it Gray

In what has to be one of the greatest quotes in recent memory, my favorite City-County Councilor, Monroe Gray is quoted in today's Indy Star as saying,

"I understand the jail crisis. People whose rates we raised will ask why their failing septic system wasn't fixed and why I gave that money to jail beds."

That has got to be one of the funniest things to date. So, he gets the jail overcrowding issue and the problems we are having with crime. But, he thinks the sewer system was really more important?!? He thinks that fixing the septic system was a bigger deal and he simply voted for more jail beds because that is what people wanted.

Monroe Gray is a special man.

Putting people in jail isn't the solution. Putting the RIGHT people in jail is. Early release of murders and child molesters seems to be the trend. Lets release the gal who forgot to pay his parking ticket or the poor guy who was arrested for public intox, keep the violent offerders. Look at what the US military is putting up with in Iraq. Prisoners have it made!!
