CA spends $71K/yr for each person in prison. The state lost a supreme court case on prison over crowding. Now more things are decriminalized, sentences are shortened, and people are released early. The end result is more criminals on the streets, and they know penalties are less severe. At least 2 CA police officers have been killed by people early released under the latest prop that shortened sentences for “non-violent” offenders.
