Look at the bright side. You won't have to pay to keep them in jail. Just like it is cheaper to keep someone in jail for life without parole than it is to convict someone to death. The appeals are extremely expensive.

This wouldn't be a problem if people were actually allowed to shoot criminals.

I would rather pay to keep them in jail than have them out causing trouble.

This is quite appropriate, given the entire L.A. City Council should be prison inmates.

Streets of LA to be flooded with criminals? What else is new? There's already a flood of illegal and legal criminals there and the U.S. army doesn't even shoot them.

Based on the feedback that this proposal has gotten ... it seems to be DOA.

Nevertheless ... what were they thinking? They've been promoting this whole prison expansion program and now they're just going to release the inmates?

I have to admit ... Arnold really screwed up with this one.

Actually this is one of the great myths about LA. The crime rate is actually very low compared to cities like Las Vegas and Dallas ...

However, obviously that would change if this proposal became reality.

If you were in their situation (inmates); you would realize what they are going through.
All of US have done something that is worth taking us to jail.
Its easy for us to say "Keep them in jail" but all of us have wanted a second chance in something...whatever it is...it doesn't make it any better.
