all I ask is don't let these gals just walk out of the jail at all times, seeing them and their barefeet and a plastic bag at the corner is disturbing - drop em off at the Gillespie trolley

Las Colinas is not a prison, it's a jail (unless someone slipped something in while folks weren't looking) I hope lots of folks take a chance and investigate this opportunity for employment.
