The jail rides program ​— ​which serves 50-75 late-night or early-morning releasees monthly ​— ​will continue another year, thanks to $10,000 awarded by county supervisors on 6/11. A taxi takes releasees to certain locations during public transportation off-hours; the program had been searching for ways to stay afloat after one of its main donors dropped out. On 7/1, the supervisors will consider allowing an outside religious organization to provide amenities.

Because the Courts simply cannot clarify that the release date means no later than 3:00 pm for the time, not 11:59 pm to meet the deadline.

So a "cash infusion" allows the jail to continue it's policy of releasing people in the middle of the night....and the media portrays this as a good thing! Interesting
