What happens when an unusually high number of cruise ship tourists meet with an unusually high number of convicts occupying the area thanks to Gov Brown's convict early release program?
Stay tuned!

Why not have the convicts take a cruise? They already got a free pass from prison. A cruise is just in order...!
Or they can hang out hand see who they can rob. I am sure the pickings will be good.
3 strikes law...really?

Um, you know the courts demanded early release right? I saw an interview with the current governor a few years ago and he wanted to build MORE prisons if I remember correctly.

According to latest Government "figures", more African "youth" are in prison than on cruise ships. Isn't it time these little fellows be given a hand up while saving hard earned taxpayer $Dollars at the same time? It would cost far less for taxpayers to send fun-loving youthful Africans on round-the-world cruises than to incarcerate them in expensive taxpayer funded prisons.

So is it the city jail, county, or federal prisons that drop off ex-cons in San Pedro?
How does that all work, exactly. Anybody know the drill?

Is San Pedro a decent place to rent? What are the good parts and what are the crappy parts?
