This will help with the overcrowding in the CA prisons as well as, hopefully, impact the state budget where we are now getting IOUs if the state owes you money.
They say the state can cut the population of its 33 adult prisons through changes in parole and other policies without endangering public safety.
I was chating with someone today, while cooking lunch for 130 homeless souls, about the need for the state to address this problem and soon. Too many men are in prison for too long for things that should not require long, mandatory sentences. We need to address rehabilitation for individual drug use, etc. And, don’t get me started about 3-strikes.
