Sending state inmates to Michigan was foolish to begin with. Once again the Department of Corrections shows they cannot handle thier own problems. The real BLAME is with the PA Board of Probation and Parole who consistently hoard inmates in the D.O.C. instead of finding effective ways to not incarcerate them. Roughly 80% of all inmates flooding the system are Parole Violaters. State Parole is playing GOD with thier power and it's a crying shame, especially for PA citizens. Some inmates need to be in jail, but there are many that DO NOT! Releasing an inmate is a rediculously slow process involving many months of stagnant time wasted by State Parole. They are pathetic in thier job responsibilities. Ask any State inmate or thier families and they will tell you the same thing. Talk about WASTED MONEY and time. P.B.P.P. needs to GO!!!!!!!!!! At the very least, a complete revamp of they conduct themselves.

I absolutely agree with your post! I am from Wisconsin and around 75% of the inmates do not need to be incarcerated. The reason(s) that they are? Easy jobs for the local populations.
Instead of politicians finding real jobs for people, it is much easier to live off the misery of other people.
To be sure, some of the inmates need to be in prison. Hell, I am in favor of the death penalty-however, stop the insanity of locking everybody up so Billy Bob in Podunk Wisconsin can have a job.
Also, the parole board? Useless politicians. People who have no business deciding on other peoples lives when they are not qualified to do so.
