Recently, a reader commented that it might be less expensive to taxpayers to just bail out nonviolent inmates at the county jail rather than pay for food, medical care, lodging and security to hold them for weeks on end.
We can sympathize.
Often times, it feels like law-abiding, taxpayers are the real people getting punished when it comes to the costs of building and maintaining jails.
We are glad county officials are willing to look more closely at alternatives to lengthy incarcerations.
