    I don’t know about you but there are a lot of “non-violent” criminals I don’t want in my house. How about you offer to house a few of them?

    I would say white collar type crimes like embezzlement, but let's face it those people don't go to prison.
    Well when they should be released in your book........why should they?

    Don’t get me wrong, the state is stupid but it is laughable to think potheads are serving hard time in CA for being potheads.
    California has a three strikes law. Possession of marijuana is (in some cases) a felony. Ergo, people get locked up for being potheads. Sometimes for years or decades.

    I can't. This is important.

    California's 33 prisons have a total capacity of 100,000, but they hold 170,000 inmates. Many prisons in California and around the country are forced to turn old gymnasiums and classrooms into huge bunkhouses for inmates. They do this by placing hundreds of bunk beds next to one another, in these gyms, without any type of barriers to keep inmates separated. In California, the inadequate security engendered by this situation, coupled with insufficient staffing levels, have led to increased violence and a prison health system that causes one death a week. This situation has led the courts to order California to release of 27% of the current prison population, citing the Eighth Amendment's prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment. The three-judge court considering requests by the Plata v. Schwarzenegger and Coleman v. Schwarzenegger courts found California's prisons have become criminogenic as a result of overcrowding.
    Interesting.

    Arrest rates for violent crimes, property offenses, felony drug sales, all other drugs, all felonies, all misdemeanors—that is, virtually everything else—declined (often sharply) over the last 15 years. But arrests of Californians for simple marijuana possession rocketed from 21,000 in 1990 to 61,000 in 2008—a population-adjusted rate leap of 127%.

    Also interesting.

    I like you GPS. You are one of the few people who makes completely unsubstantiated assumptions on this forum.
