Prison overcrowding has been ignored for years

Let me get this straight, MCCC is overcrowded? The County of Maui could have extended the prison but poor planning was to blame. They wanted to move the prison and doing this would cost mega bucks so it was ignored by state and local officials.

They could have extended but who’s to say what they were thinking about when low income housing and apartments were built right next to them. You put the residents in harm’s way. But that’s the way it goes.

Don’t blame the inmates. You blame the officials that are in charge of the complex for overcrowding. Inmates pay for your mistake! Overcrowding was brought years ago but nothing happened. It is 2019 and still nothing.
