Arrestees behind glass walls an outrage

So our sheriff is wanting to put attorneys and their clients with glass walls between them, eh?

This is an outrage! What about our Constitution and its Sixth Amendment? Mr. Royal and your deputies, you need to remember that each arrestee is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. That arrestee’s relationship by separating them with wall and a phone handset is justice denied.
