CDCR Puts Million Dollar Fortress Eyesore in Downtown Sacramento

By  

CDCR headquarters in Sacramento has created a very expensive eyesore in downtown Sacramento that accomplishes nothing. There is no security around the gates. People walk in and out of the gates unimpeded and anyone can walk around the gates, through the building.

There are actually two sets of gates, one on either end of the building. The fence and gates are built like a fortress, enclosing the breezeway between buildings.

We were unable to discover the total cost of the fences and gates, the cost for all the electronics, the card-readers, the labor to give cards to employees, and the installation cost. Ballpark figures center around one million dollars.

Reverend Cayenne B. Bird, who arranged for the video below said, "The cost of this fence could have gone to our human services budgets to reduce homelessness. I don't know why they built this monstrosity... Are they afraid of people who are coming out of prisons after being abused there?"

It seems there is no budget crisis for CDCR.
