Vote for Justice

Another cartoon based on a local story:

One of the measures on the Iowa City ballot this election is to vote yes or no for a new "justice center," which I think is basically a nicer-sounding name than "jail" or "prison." Voting yes would mean adding a few more jail cells to the ones already existing at the courthouse.

Here's what it would look like. The new justice center is the glass, rectangular addition to the courthouse.
Here are some articles on it, if you want to learn more:
