Of course there is this part from your friends at PPIC:
In response to the Supreme Court mandate, California now sends many lower-level offenders to local custody instead of to state prison. Since the advent of realignment on October 1, 2011, the total in-custody prison population has fallen by 12%, from 161,000 to 141,000 at the end of February 2012.
Again, about that local custody thing. What do you think happens when those violent criminals hit the local levels? They are getting released, as I have posted from numerous sources.
Then there is this, from the same source:
Though the violent crime rate is down, a majority of prisoners (63%) are serving time for violent crimes.
I thought the state prisons were full of innocent 3X felons caught with $5 rocks of crack?
You're not gaining much ground here DD.
