Richard Ferruccio has it exactly right. Instead of putting all the emphasis on letting criminals out a little earlier and shaving off a few dollars, we should be hiring one or two Inspectors to go out and start cracking down and fining companies for the ILLEGALS that are here.

Steve Brown of ACLU's comments were bothersome and typical of what we have come to know as the citizens action group that is supposed to come to the aid of the people. He said [addressing overcrowding] "...he worries that excluding sexual offenders from the new 'good time' policies will set a bad precedent." What the #$^% kind of nematode thinking is this? The language of this Plan is to NOT include S.O.'s in this plan with early release.

Frankly, we need to Brand them with a Tatoo or S.O. on their forehead so we can spot them.

And lets not house, feed and educate the ILLEGALS in our jails. Let's seize their assets and find out who employed them and fine that company for harboring/employing the ILLEGALS. We legal residents are not only having medical benefits but now our safety benefits affected because of these parasites. Let's trim some of the fat in the General Assembly and enforce some of the laws that are already on the books rather than let criminals run amuck.
