Jail Time

Fresh on the heels of the closing of Jessup's notorious maximum security prison comes talk about what to do with Oak Hill Youth Center in Fort Meade, across Route 32 from the NSA. A detention center for youth offenders from DC, the District is under court order to shut it down by 2009 because of chronic problems with overcrowding, escapes and the like. The city is proposing to rebuild the facility. Anne Arundel and Maryland Sens. Cardin and Mikulski are fighting it, saying part of the 880 acres should become a regional park, according to the Post.
