California to reduce its prison population by 25 percent

The outcome of the judges' decision:

The three-judge panel gave the governor and lawmakers 45 days to present a plan to cut the inmate population from about 150,000 to 110,000 over two years. The judges delivered a stern message about conditions that are so poor in some prisons that they violate inmates' constitutional rights. . . .

So what do people think that a 25 percent drop in the prison population will have on crime?

Why doesn't Kalifornia contract with the Mexican Government and put their prisoners in Mexican prisons ? It certainly would a lot cheaper and would offer a great deterrent as well.

Depends on how the population is reduced. In CA, I guess the wrong way...

I live in The People's Socialist Quagmire of California and this is NOT good.

So, some liberal CA judges have determined that conditions are "poor" and therefore violate the inmates' rights. And what's the liberal answer to this "pressing social problem?" Why, release the inmates!

What about the rights of the victims? Oh wait! To liberals, the criminal is the victim.

It's an Emily Latella moment.
