About time: the Orleans Parish Jail fiasco drags on, and on, with officials fighting each step toward improvement. But now the Southern Poverty Law Center will recoup a bit of their attorneys’ fees, $900,000. The decree that accompanies the order may cost the Parish as high as $20 MILLION. To this outside observer, the amount is a drop in the proverbial bucket compared to the pain, suffering, and deaths that occurred there before the law suits began. Imagine if the sheriff had applied this money to making a safe environment instead of the hell hole?
