This was the distressing scene outside the rear of the REGJB Tuesday morning as crowds jammed and overwhelmed the aging facility we who labor there call home.
(Thanks to the alert reader/attorney who snapped this picture before heading into the building. If more readers would email us pictures of problems, we be able to spend less time thinking about what to write.)
The problem with courthouse lines is that it lessens the public's confidence in the court system. For a country that prides itself on giving everyone "access" to the courts, in Miami criminal courts, no one really has "access" when it takes 75-90 minutes to get into the damn building.
What can Brown do for you?
See you in the building no one can get in to.
