How can the Nisqually Jail Affect You?

> If you live in the neighborhood,: Safety, traffic, environment,  water, noise, home values … 
The proposed jail is supposed to be “low risk” however, even Attorney McKenna states that “offenders subject to community custody...includes those who are potentially high risk.” Aug. 31, 2011.
 > If you live in Thurston County—Duplicity of services with the A.R.C. Jail built and Vacant in Tumwater $45 Million wasted taxpayers money. Thurston County Commissioners state that there are enough inmates in Washington to ‘fill’ both the Nisqually Jail and the A.R.C. Do we really want to be known as an incarceration state?
> If you live in Thurston County—Liability if inmate escapes, immediately it is the Thurston County’s problem. If an inmate escapes that constitutes a felony. The tribe would not be able to pursue a Felony or off 'reservation' property. Sherriff Snaza states that he does not have enough funds to staff extra law enforcement protection for this area.
>A Congretional Act made the land the propject is proposed on Reservation Land, this land was NEVER The Nisqually Indian Tribe's property prior to this Act. The parcel the proposed jail will be built on is not contiguous to the Nisqually Tribe’s reservation, and is on the South side of  Hwy. 510.  This Congressional Act may set precedence to off-reservation property. See Off Reservation Property Map on blog site or face book page. Even though this is not happening in your neighborhood NOW, it may happen sometime soon!
