Already wanted on a parole violation? I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked!

California faces a serious dilemma, as the three judge panel from the 9th. US District Court just re-affirmed it's ruling that the state must release up to 40,000 prisoners over the next two years. Schwarzenegger's state lawyers are going to appeal this decision up to the State Supreme Court; which will stall action for a while. Nonetheless, should the governor's office lose, the state will be compelled to let a minimum of 20,000 prisoners out. Should this occur, I wonder what measures are in place to weed out prisoners who blithely tell parole boards: "Uh, yea, man, I'll be good. Sure. Changed my ways. Uh huh."

Seriously, I wish there was a way to tell. Non-violent offenders, first-time offenders should get another chance. Repeat offenders, however, are another matter. What's not part of this discussion, is the enormous numbers of incarcerated "undocumented" prisoners.(Can't call them illegal aliens, not PC enough) No matter, according to the California Joint Committee on Prison Construction and Operations, we (the state) spends $500 Million a year to arrest and imprison some 22,000 "undocumented" visitors. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. This is a burden that the federal government only reimburses us (the state) at a rate of only around 38%.

So while I'm thrilled that Curtis LeCompte, after he gets released from the hospital, will be able to go back to jail and network some more with his homies, the bigger picture looms. Put this another way: Which city in Solano Country do you think has the highest release rate of prisoners?(Hint-The same city just laid off some police officers) Survey says?---

I thought he would know, if he's trying to get away from the law, then why go to AmCan? That's like turning yourself in.

Random plate check ? What the hell does that mean ? I bet he is a older white blonde hair gentelman to right ? Clowns Vallejo PD is so shady it hurts, Vallejo needs to FIRE EVERY single officer they have and bring in some new ones , its clear that they are racist and profile people on a day to day basis.

Good job getting the stolen car off the streets!

Random plate checks are usually done when the driver doesn't fit the car he/she is driving. That's how most cars are found that was stolen. Race has nothing to do with the check. Good JOB AmCan.

what the gov should do is make sure those released and are found housing in the city and close to the judges homes. the judges want them on the streets, make sure it is their streets..

That is a great idea, GMB. Locate a halfway house next door to the judge. Get some more halfway houses next to the attorneys arguing on behalf of the outlaws. That way the bad boys can come over and visit the judge, attorneys, and their familys 24/7.
