Why don't we out source our prison system to China since we are already giving our business to the rest of the world. I believe the Chinese know how to maintain a prison. They don't have an issue with recidivism. It would be a lot less costly for us. The prisoners would not feel too entitled. There would be no bodybuilding programs for making bigger stronger thugs. There would not be any drugs for them... may help them withdrawal. The food expenses would be much lower. The room and board fees would go down. The Chinese prison guards would not have any language issues and costs like in our prisons where we provide interpreters. We would be placing our prisoners in the same situation as far as language is concern. The prisoners don’t speak English much. They would have a very long way to escape to get back to south of the boarder. Lets just do it!

Probable cause: Monterey county needs the money... The county knows that every person run through the system brings a certain amount of money to the county coffers and employees a lawyer.

I would not be surprised that our county and local police, have a commitment to bringing in prior offenses... This being said, the local police know that their pay check, and retirement is based on getting a conviction, no matter how trivial...

Monterey county does not have law enforcement as much as they have a "Brown Shirt Gestapo!" Plus, the judicial system is rewarded by this forced enforcement. So these statistics do not surprise me, fact is they reinforce my prescription of their actions.

I wonder how Santa Cruz County rates. The state patrol agents wait until the individuals parole time is almost over, then arrest them for something that has been going on for over two years. I believe that has something to do with job security,both patrol agents and correctional officers. Patrol agents arrest and return them to prison,correctional guards sell them dope inside. Job security all around!

The CDCR decimated and gutted the education department, throwing first line educators and vocational instructors out, while keeping a high percentage of vice principals sitting around on their butts. We just received a $170,000 Heidelburg press, tons of equipment,
good vocational programs that were dropped. Good teachers demoted. It is the most screwed up process I have ever seen, heavy on administrators, short on the good teachers and programs. We even lost the Pre-Release program which helped inmates find jobs, resources, practice job interviews, where to go for job training. CDCR is full of idiots making the decisions that cause the tax payers so much money.

Like any business, they need customers. Listen up, junior gangbangers- don't be a customer. Get a job.
