$5 million in debt to replace more than 1,300 substandard locks.

Huh?

I know it says "more than 1300", but how many more than 1300? Let's call it an even 2000 lucks just to cover any slack.

That's $2500 per lock.

And yeah, I realize it's not the same thing as a Master lock like you would put on a school locker or the Dexter lock on my front door, but $2500 per lock? Who is getting paid off?

Alpharetta resident Kate Boccia has a 22-year-old son who's been in and out of the Fulton jail during the past year awaiting an armed robbery trial. It doesn't sit well with her knowing he's in a facility that can't keep inmates in cells. "As a mother, you definitely worry about your child's safety," Boccia said.
 
If she's so farking concerned about her child's safety, then tell him to stop committing crimes that get him put in the lock up.  That would do more for his safety than locks.

I worked in the Fulton County Jail back in the late '90s maintaining the payphones that the prisoners used. In fact, I maintained almost every phone in all the jails in North Georgia. I have to say that Fulton County was by far the scariest, most vile prison I have ever seen. I hatred going into the cell areas, as I was only escorted by one guard and the common areas where the phones were had anywhere from 30 to 80 prisoners. They at anytime could have easily overpowered us. Thankfully, for the most part the prisoners were glad to see me as I was the one who kept their connection to the outside working. 
 
  Prisons are a strange place. Some of the smaller jails were very laid back like Mayberry, then you had places like Fulton County that were movie jails come to life.
