The Mira Loma plan, if “plan” is the right word, calls for a jail in the wrong place, with buildings designed and constructed with too little regard for their use. The county seems determined to move forward chiefly because it won a state grant several years ago to pay for the project, and it doesn’t want to lose the money. But authorizing construction would be like buying a shoe only because someone else offered to pay for it. What’s the point, if you have to cut off a toe to make it fit? You fit the shoe to the foot, not the other way around. You fit the building — and the location — to the programming need.
