California spent $12 million to add the R to CDC, to become CDCR in or around 2006. That R was for “Rehabilitation”. Ironically just before that, they slashed nearly every rehabilitation program in the prison system, because they couldn’t find the $3-4 million to keep it operational for another year.

In California, murderers often get 5-7 years, while a sex offender will likely the same or more in most cases i’ve seen. Also, California has a bad history of not working with parolees to help get them back on their free, but instead, are hard nosed about their situations. Parolees are people with feelings most have goals and dreams, but no confidence or limited support from friends or families.

It’s too late now, but at one time, California could have spent the money and energy to focus on keeping parolees out of prison by finding alternative ways to handle those who are not flying straight.

Sex offenders are treated differently, with extremely limited housing options, ankle bracelets, and soon, no food stamps. Now that the prison population is in a forced reduction mode, you can bet your butts there will be a new campaign to put sex offender parolees back into prison for very simple technical violations.

Federal judges apply Constitutional standards on the scales of
justice as they did here….its a HomeRun for our Constitution ….
…….they need to close all california courts so federal judges rule
on the case from the get-go.

I think this entire government needs to be taken to court at The Hague.
