Hall of Justice

April 04, 1999

* Re "Sheriff Wants to Move Into Old Hall of Justice," March 30: Sheriff Lee Baca wants to move downtown. More precisely, he wants to spend $100 million to renovate the old Hall of Justice because he doesn't want county officers "to see [him] as being detached." Detached? What an ironic choice of words. The world is going virtual and our thoughtful sheriff wants to spend $100 million in county funds to be close to the action. Well, not quite. He expect to recover $80 million from federal taxpayers. What a relief. Oh, yes. We'll float a bond for the remaining $20 million. Slick.

Get a grip, Lee.
