Why is it that every boiler automatically has designed therein a pressure release valve? The answer is obvious -- for safety and security. Without pressure release valves, any boiler could very well cause a tremendous explosion, and people could get hurt.Judges everywhere are now crying out for more security, and too must have a pressure release valve for safety and security. Without a safety release valve, matters in the judicial branch of government are bound to eventually explode. It is J.A.I.L. that will afford judges just exactly what they need, a citizen safety valve for their own protection.When a boiler tank is nearing its full strain, and about to burst, one does not seal off the escaping steam and turn up the heat. Yet this is exactly what the judges are doing, building more walls of separation from the very public they serve. Next thing we know, we will find judges on the bench behind bullet-proof glass.We propose that all judges everywhere in this nation take a hard look at J.A.I.L. for the public safety and good of all, including themselves.While the following article deals only with California, the picture is the same throughout the country.Security Found Lacking In Many Courthouses.... By MAURADOIAN, Times Staff WriterSAN FRANCISCO-- Many California courts lack adequate security ...and the price tag for fixing them will reach about $3 billion over 10 years, a state task force reported Thursday.Public safety is at risk, the group of judges and state and county officials said. ....

* Note the words above, "The task force estimated that the state will have to spend $104 million a year..." Wshsssel, I'm certainly glad the state is going to pay this. I thought for a minute that the taxpayers were going to be strapped with this huge debt.J.A.I.L. is an acronym for (Judicial Accountability Initiative Law)
