    California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger [official website] is considering a mass release of more than 20,000 nonviolent prisoners in hopes of staving off a projected $10 billion to $14 billion budget deficit over the next two fiscal years, the Sacramento Bee reported Friday. Only prisoners with less than 20 months remaining in their sentence would be eligible for early release; *** offenders would not be eligible. The reported proposal would free 22,159 inmates and save the state $256 million in the fiscal year beginning July 1. AP has more. The Sacramento Bee has local coverage.

    In the past, Schwarzenegger has considered early release [JURIST report] as a way to alleviate the burden on California's overcrowded prison system [JURIST news archive]. In July, two federal district judges separately ordered the formation of a special three-judge panel [JURIST report] to supervise and reduce California's prison population after finding that overcrowding is preventing the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) [official website] from adequately providing mental health care. In May, Schwarzenegger signed off on a $7.7 billion program to construct facilities [JURIST report] to provide 53,000 new prison and jail beds over the next five years. The construction program and release plan failed to persuade the federal judges, who were not convinced that the measures would bring compliance with the Eighth Amendment guarantee of constitutionally adequate mental health care for individuals suffering from serious mental illnesses that are incarcerated by the CDCR.

      Mike,
      What is the point of this?

      I understand that early release of prisoners comes when the jails are overcrowded or because of budget concerns. But what does this have to do with immigration?

          Is Arnold Terminating Common Sense in California's Budget Crisis
          Saturday, 22 December 2007
          By John W. Lillpop

          Can sleeping with a Kennedy wipe out one's conservative DNA? How about sleeping with a Kennedy AND having a *** chief of staff named Susan Kennedy?

          This seemingly impertinent query is posed in light of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's curious proposal to release as many as 20,000 "non-serious, non-violent" prisoners in order to stave off a budget deficit that is $14 billion, and counting.

          An even more urgent question haunts one's fiduciary consciousness: Why in the hell has California spent even a nickel to house, fed, and provide medical care for 20,000 people whose indiscretions are so benign as to not be worth punishing?
          In other words, why imprison these people to begin with? As a political pay back to the prison guard unions, perhaps?

          Assuming that most, if not all, of the inmates are in prison for good and proper cause, why are California's lawmakers and governor not considering other cuts in spending such as these:

          1. Illegal aliens are estimated to cost the state $10.5 billion each year! Why not cut all public services to those not in the U.S. legally?

          WND:http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/ar...TICLE_ID=42474

          2. California legislators are the highest paid in the nation, at an average of more than $110,000 per year. Whatever happened to service and community spirit? Replaced by greed and crass opportunism?

          3. Regulatory meddling in every aspect of life is driving businesses and middle class folks out of California. Productive citizens are being replaced by freeloaders and scam artists from south of our border.

          California does not need to release any prisoners in order to balance the state budget.

          We do, however, need responsible governance when it comes to illegal aliens, excessive regulation, and the salaries of elected leaders!

            Hey Mike,
            That's what the ignore button is for. Some people, not naming any 1 person in particular, just wants to see her vile spew in black and white... but nobody else reads it, so let her post away.
            Ignore.

              Your right, however, her stories are whimsical, funny, and sometimes downright hilarious, don't you think? I really don't think she knows what truth from fiction really is. LOL.
