Default This is How California Can Fix Its Massive Prison Crisis

In 1987, the incarcerated population was 67,000 inmates, and grew to almost three times that in 2007 with 171,000 prisoners. The LAO states most of the growth "occurred between 1987 and 1998 … this period was one of declining crime rates but also included the implementation of tougher sentencing laws and a prison construction boom."

Excellent article. The solutions are there, right in front of them. But, none of these will benefit the private prisons or CO's so they ignore reasonableness and stick to these harsh laws. Every inmate is a dollar sign. It's nothing more than a business...SICKENING!!!

if you can picture the California prison system as a normal hospital with the same care given as inmates receive now, the health dept would shut them down quick... yet Jerry Brown seems to think everything is under control.
