Wait Listed By Jail-17

"As far as jails go, the Los Angeles Police Department's gleaming, new Metropolian Detention Center is about as good as it gets. ... The new detention center sits empty because of the city's dire fiscal crisis, which has left the LAPD unable to hire enough jailers to operate the large, labor-intensive facility", Joel Rubin at the LAT, 20 June 2010: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010/06/lapd-new-74-million-dollar-jail-sits-empty.html.

Maybe we could hold rap concerts there; that would save up a trip. Or we could use it as a detention center to hold illegal Indians being deported back to Oaxaca.
