No Justice in the 'Loin

The Supes have sent Gavin's proposal for a new courthouse in the Tenderloin back to the drawing board. The Supes considered Gav's $500,000 spending request for a new courthouse (dubbed the Community Justice Center ) ostentatious given the city's overall budget crisis. If built, the center will house a regular courtroom and social services under one roof to serve Gavin's alleged crackdown on crime in the Tenderloin; petty perps would have the choice of signing up for services (drug and alcohol rehab, what have you) or facing Judge Judy. Irony abounds, given the "down with crime!" chant we've heard from city hall since the area has undergone new development efforts. No comment from Minty Fresh. [Examiner]
