A new jail is in the works in San Francisco, but some people don’t think it’s really needed. Their argument is it is a waste of money. And they’re sharing that message right now in San Francisco.
Conversations are in place about a proposed replacement jail in San Francisco. The group Critical Resistance released a report on what they call the harms and wastefulness, which is planned as a replacement of the old Hall of Justice.
Protesters said the incarceration rate is low, and key alternatives include bail reform and expanding mental health diversion programs.
