This is completely counter productive. So let low level offenders out to now make them the county's problem where the offense was commited, flood the streets with people who will most likely continue to commit "low level" offenses like theft, various drug offenses, etc. That is exactly what we need...more criminals out in the streets. They went to prison for a reason right?
If his concern was public safety, more offenders would stay behind bars for life and more offenders would BE behind bars instead receiving a slap on the wrist. Make cuts WITHIN the walls of the prisons. With this economy and hard working people suffering, I could care less about low lifes' getting 3 warm, FREE nutritious meals every day while others work hard to feed their families AND pay rent for criminals.
Tax us more for your failed state of mind..to make a failed state.
