Fox9’s Tom Lyden has a look at the St. Paul parking garage where Republican National Convention misdemeanor arrestees will be held.
Well, an exterior look anyway; officials wouldn’t let Lyden inside. Fox9’s camera shows a new air-conditioning unit and ductwork at the ramp’s street level.
Convention-site holding facilities have become an extremely hot topic since a Denver warehouse’s chain-link-laden “Gitmo on the Platte” was revealed.
Lyden says the garage is underneath the Ramsey County Emergency Operations Center. In the report, he notes, “If all goes well, those who have identification on them will be in and out with a ticket within four hours.”
Felony arrestees will still wind up in the jail next door.
