The JAIL Ballot Explanation

PP over at South Dakota War College has the result of the lawsuit filed by the J.A.I.L.er's to have the ballot explanation provided by Attorney General Larry Long changed. I would recommend you click on over to read the full result but the conclusion is as follows:
¶61.] Excepting use of the word “volunteers,” the attorney general’s ballot statement is 1) objective and 2) clear and simple and it states 3) the purpose and effect and 4) the legal consequences of the proposed JAIL constitutional amendment. The word “volunteers” should be replaced by the words “special grand jurors” and then the ballot statement is good to go.
I know Bill, you lost, so this is sure to be an excellent example as to why this law is needed right?
