A limit on prisoners takes the limits from crime. Why can't these idiots see that? What kind of sick logic do these bleeding hearts use?
I wish these transnational progressives would go somewhere else.
California Democrats regularly ignores Federal law unless it suits them. The Defense of Marriage Act, Marijuana and ignoring immigration laws to name a few.
Crime in California causes billions of dollars wasted that could go to everything from roads to schools. They coddle the very people responsible for 95% of the crime.
If i had my way they be living in a tent, without heat.
After obamas third term, we will all be living in a tent without heat. America is over.
Why bother with prisons when AB109 lets them out and sends them back to county of origin?
"Brown says lowering the prison population beyond this point, as ordered by the court, would require rewriting, or disregarding, the California Constitution"
It's not against the California Constitution to deport illegal aliens. Who just so happen to make up roughly 30% of the CA state prison population. Overcrowding solved.
As I have said before, we have by far the most prisoners per capita than any other country. 730 per 100,000 people are incarcerated in the U.S. Why is that? Are we bad people or has the government made it a new manufacturing business? I see most commenters want more people locked up for longer. We have the lowest crime rate in decades, the lowest number of D.U.I. fatality's in decades. Why are the people so scared?
You can visit this link to see incarceration rates.
Skidmoore if what you say is true then common sense says the reason we have the lowest crime rate in decades is because we lock up more people then ever. You contradict yourself. BTW Wikipedia is not an accurate source for info. Most legitimate colleges do not accept it for research.
"...............the lowest number of D.U.I. fatality's in decades,"just think,and we never took cars or alcohol away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Release them in SF and LA where the ruling voters live.
Bogus numbers quoted once again with regard to illegal aliens in state prisons...the number is closer to 13% plus or minus....NOT thirty percent. Approximately 30 percent are Hispanic. Maybe this accounts for the confusion.
I agree. We should deport the numbers of non-Americans anyway.
Miwuk man we have always had the highest number of people per capita as prisoners.
I think the government and the media have the people thinking there is much more crime than there used to be. It keeps you voting to raise taxes on yourself , so the government can keep you safe. And Wikipedia claims 730 per 100,00 Department of justice claims 749 per 100,00.
I still don't understand why people are scared . Especially here in Tuolumne county. There is nowhere I wouldn't go at any time of day or night and feel threatened.I feel more threatened by the police than the citizens. So I say release the prisoners and stop wasting our money.
