Reno County PDs get aggressive on holding clients without charges

A Hutch News article reported on the PDs efforts to get the prosecutor to charge persons sitting in jail or have the court release them. It's sort of ludicrous to hear about people being held for months without charges--you would think that is a headline from some of the national security/Guantanamo debates, not run-of-the-mill charges in Hutchinson, Kansas. Is this very common in other counties?
