Default Up to 60,000 California Inmate Releases over Next 2-3 Years

Quote:
California News (KFSN) -- Tens of thousands of California state prisoners will soon be released back to their homes. Instead of being slammed shut, close to 60,000 inmates may soon see their prison doors open wide. A federal appeals court has issued a tentative ruling saying California's prison population must be reduced within the next 2-3 years because of overcrowding and poor conditions.
Currently there are close to 158,000 inmates in California spread across 33 prisons. If the court's ruling is finalized and an appeal is rejected, an estimated 60,000 white-collar criminals, property and identity thieves would be set free.
"A lot of these folks earned their trip to state prison," said Merced Sheriff Mark Pazin.
Pazin worries these inmates will return to their previous lives of crime

One more reason to stay away from Cali.

You could release all the hash prisoners. You no longer have to pay to house them, and it gives a boost to the local snack economy.

I thought the mandatory sentencing and three strike rule was around as a prevention, I guess not. Prisons as a business hopefully will come to an end, maybe just maybe that money is better spent in prevention, kinda like healthcare.

There are only one way to prevent crime. That is to make everything legal.

Or to help people to learn... you know. that little thing called knowledge.

I can't say I agree with releasing prisoners uniformly... but if they are being selective...

You just took my point, added your own bad logic to it, and then turned it back around and made it sound like my own words.

Not only are you assuming what I meant, but you are ALSO trying to take my point where I never meant it to go. Please refrain from doing so again.

Then please explain where you meant it to go, rather than ranting about his post.

The majority of these releases will be folks in on drug charges I'm sure. These are not going to be violent offenders or folks doing serious time.

The California prison system is pretty messed up. Legal battles are currently being fought over the Parole board's consistent failure to grant parole to eligible inmates simply based on the nature of their original charge. This while the prison facilities are way beyond stuffed full.

I toured a county jail in California last summer, it was an enlightening experience, very claustrophobic. Had a chance to see San Quentin too, but I ended up not going.

You made a foolish statement, I showed you that foolishness, and now your feelings are hurt. I will post as I wish. I did not insult you, just made you look foolish.

Not only did I say IF they were selective about it, but IF they were willing to actually educate the inmates who did what they did out of ignorance of lack of control. NOTHING about a guy who knew how to work the system.

Take your stupidity somewhere else.
