Default Cutting prison programs hurts us all

http://www.sacbee.com/2010/02/23/255...ams-hurts.html

The $250 million that California is about to save by slashing vital rehabilitation programs for prisoners will cost us many times that much money.
The money we think we're saving will cost us many times over in more crime, more drug abuse and ruined lives.

Most of the comments there are good. Even OldtoothlessLion (a CO) is admitting there are problems in the way the system is cutting programs.
