So Danny Dunagan and city council doesn't want a jail "crammed down our throats." I wonder if they ever give any thought to their annexations and rezonings "crammed" down the throats of the area citizens.

Many of these rezonings make no sense at all such as townhomes in a residential neighborhood or shopping center on residential streets. What's good for the goose is good for the gander!
