Re: “Why inmates are boarding up Atlanta‚Äôs abandoned and vacant homes

Well, I suppose you haven't arrived until you've been called an idiot in the comments of a CL article. Actually I and my organization have interviewed dozens of people who been locked up at the city jail. The truth is the city jail is a redundant (we already have a county jail) waste of tax payer dollars. It houses people who have committed dangerous crimes such as spitting on the sidewalk, jay walking, or who are simply too broke to pay a traffic fine. In other words, the jail is used as a makeshift homeless shelter and its purpose has nothing to do with public safety. The jail shouldn't even exist and therefore, people who are locked inside (in single cells many of them, as in solitary confinement considered torture in many other nations) shouldn't be used to do jobs that people in our communities desperately need to be paid for. Let's close the city jail and put the saved millions into real services our community needs - including paid jobs programs to do things such as board up homes and clean up our neighborhoods.

Re: “Immigration rally

These are great pictures, but I dont understand why Creative Loafing had no other coverage of this incredible event. 7,000 people in the streets of Atlanta is news! People coming out of the shadows because things in Atlanta and Georgia have become as unbearable as in Arizona is important news that CL readers deserve to know. This march was not just a protest against SB1070, but in favor of reform, against Gwinnett and Cobb county's 287g agreements, and for dignity here in this state! Please, CL, this is an issue you should be doing a much stronger job of reporting on!
