Ryan, everyone is tired of justice matters' lies. Nearly 1,000 people, that is funny, seems people are tired of their crap.
Iowa City is a perfect example of their tactics. They act like the voters there overwhelming voted against a jail but that isn't true. Check out the link. EVERY time it was on the ballot the majority supported the jail. Unfortunately they needed 60% for it to pass.
Nearly 1,000 people? I hope justice matters got the message.

When you mention fear tactics and Treanor you lose all credibility. These are irrational arguments.

Hey Chad, when are you going to start fact checking the opposition groups? Did you and your BFF Benet discuss this over beers? How about some equal time for all the b.s. they are putting out there?

You say "vote no now, then vote yes in November, it's the better way!" You are pretty confident you are going to get 5,000 signatures. Have you seen all the vote yes signs in town? And say you do get 5,000 signatures, what is the better way? It appears you want to short fund mental health.
I am curious. This is your second letter in as many weeks in opposition. I know that many of your congregation members do not feel the same as you. How as a minister do you justify only representing part of your congregation?

Judy, it appears either you have had your head in the sand or more than likely you have been listening to the lies being spread by justice matters. The county hired a national expert named Allen Beck. He is so nationally known that even the justice matters hypocrites have used his data in the past. You really should do some homework and not just listen to a church group that has serious problems with the truth. Here is the Journal World story from last 2017 about those so called little programs. http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2017/aug...

Mr. Gallup, I went to a community presentation, they are doing all of the things you suggested. You should take advantage of one of these educational meetings and see everything they are doing to divert people from jail.

Kendall, you better do your homework, you have received bad information if you believe you can stop the county from meeting a statutory obligation. You don't have to look far to see a recent ruling in this newspaper from a judge that says, "Kansas law recognizes that a county maintaining a jail owes a duty of care to the inmates housed there" and "A county owes a duty of reasonable care to inmates because they are not at liberty to meet there own needs and thus must depend on those who hold them." I'm just guessing that inmates sleeping on the floor and violent inmates in the wrong housing probably don't meet that duty of care. By the way the mental health center isn't meant to be a substitute for jail, it isn't going to send people there instead of jail if they have committed a crime. Better do some homework on your own and stop listening to fake news. Have you toured the jail or been to a community presentation? I'm guessing not.

The writer forgot to mention the high paying jobs that will be created and failed to mention the $154,000,000 in spending for mental health.

Saddened but not surprised to see the faith based group spreading false information on Easter. They know no boundaries to their deceit.

Sharilyn, for someone who works for a social service agency I find it very disappointing that you are so quick to show your lack of knowledge on this issue. You continue to say things that are so far from the truth it is laughable.
