Activists Blast SF Jail Plan

A coalition of activists in San Francisco is calling on the city to drop plans to build a new $290 million dollar jail. They say the money would be better spent on services that keep people out of the criminal justice system. Members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors held a hearing on the issue, but were not scheduled to vote on the jail plan. Opponents of the jail held a news conference shortly before the hearing. Christopher Martinez reports from San Francisco.
