State Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has signed a pledge not to spend any money building a Baltimore youth jail if he is elected governor.
It’s nice to know, but a little late for a vow on the subject. The prospect of a Baltimore youth jail loomed large in 2012, but after it started to look hopelessly unnecessary and counterproductive from just about every angle, plans were indefinitely scrapped in January of last year in favor of sending more juvenile offenders to treatment programs. So the whole thing seems like kind of a done deal.
Maybe we can get him to sign a pledge not to shoot a western black rhinoceros or buy a new Saturn.
