A World Gone Mad
60% of the 25,000 prison inmates released by Jerry Brown
have committed new crimes.
An idiot band of Federal judges "pressured" the weak-kneed leftist politicians of the People's Republic of California to relieve prison "overcrowding" in 2011. Our giant coward Comrade Governor Jerry Brown pushed lawmakers to send tens of thousands of parolees and lower-level offenders to counties to be released into the street to prey on the citizens.
The realignment plan enabled the state to reduce its prison population by 25,000 inmates and balance its cash-strapped budget. But so far it has disappointed advocates who had lofty hopes that counties would reduce California's notoriously high rate of inmates who commit new crimes soon after hitting the streets reports the Fresno Bee.
Parolees monitored by counties under realignment have been arrested for new crimes at the same rate as when the state supervised similar offenders, the Sacramento Bee found in an analysis of state data. Some 60% of parolees released to counties from October 2011 through September 2012 were arrested for new offenses within 12 months of leaving prison, the same rate as a comparable population of parolees managed by the state the year before the law took effect.
County officials point to several factors that have compromised their ability to change the state's cycle of crime.
Limited jail space for parole violators means that counties must release some inmates early. Probation officers have high caseloads, which prevent them from monitoring parolees as closely as they would like.

Oh that's right, with dirt cheap construction there is nothing for corrupt government contractors to steal and thus no reason for them to line the pockets of politicians with campaign cash to get the contracts to build.

A good enough home for law abiding civilians, but somehow it not
good enough to house rapists, child molesters and killers.
