As Prisoner Exchange Begins, LA County Officials Predict Doom

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Los Angeles County’s top prosecutor is predicting doom and gloom with a prospect of thousands of convicted felons being diverted to the county’s jail system rather than state prisons.

And amid such a move, Sheriff Lee Baca told us in an exclusive interview late Friday that he plans to launch his own personal investigation into an increased controversy about the use-of-force by sheriff’s deputies in the jails.

Starting Saturday, Baca says he plans to talk directly with county jail inmates about the alleged beatings.

“I want to hear what the inmates have to say for themselves,” he said.

Baca’s urgent action highlights not only use-of-force issue, but the magnitude of the problem facing law enforcement in LA County.

District Attorney Steve Cooley says with thousands of new, convicted felons coming into the jail system and 8,000 or more nonviolent felons being released early on parole; it’s a prescription for disaster.

“I’m also predicting in connection with that population, we’re going to experience the greatest spike in crime of the last several decades,” Cooley said.

Only Deputy Chief Probation Officer Reaver Bingham, whose department will have to keep track of the thousands of new parolees, is hopeful that with increased funding and smaller caseloads, things might not turn out as bad as predicted.

“If we do supervision correctly, we have seen the positive outcomes that we are projecting,” Bingham said.

On Saturday, the first group of 45 nonviolent felony inmates already serving time will gain early release and will be allowed to head home to LA.

They’ll be the first of nearly 9,000 inmates who will also be released over the next nine months.

    Soon there will be more criminals than Law abiding citizens. Murders and rapists should be executed immediately to free up room for drug dealers etc. No criminal should be released early. All citizens should obtain concealed-carry permits.

      Execute Drug Dealers First!

        Hey Neal Avery,

        I hope you are including all Pharmaceutical executives in your quote.

      2. Johny Chingas says:

        The WonderWoman sounds like she is MAD at the Pharmaceutical executives….. I am wonder if is because she won’t be getting her daily dose for free anymore????? LOL!

    2. Tamerlane says:

      Lisa, when I read your rant I can’t stop visualizing a spastic hamster in a bubble ball.; do you ever arrive at your intended destination, or do you just confidently (dizzily) accept the dusty corner, where your erratic, incomplete thoughts land you?

    3. Southern Libertarian says:

      Fred, Your comments reflect your lack of compassion and a hate for you fellow man. What happened to “Thou Shall Not Kill”? And to the drug issue, our own war on drugs is the 21st century version of Prohibition with even worse results. The truth is you can not legislate human behavior or morality. I am a gun carring Libertarian, but I understand the sanctity of human life. Our problems our mostly of our own creation, and they will not go away until we change our philosophy about how we deal with each other in a rational and logical way.

      1. The Bobster says:

        What’s irrational about snuffing criminals and brown squat monster invaders?

      2. jimonthebeach says:

        S. L.: Thou shalt not kill never stopped the criminals who the courts are turning loose. And if you lived in California, you’d be a criminal for carrying your gun-you don’t get to carry in California unless you’re criminal or a cop. You can’t even possess some common types of guns in California. Before you criticize Fred, who lives in that cesspool, you might want to take a reality check. I lived in California for more than ten years and I don’t even recognize it any more. I wouldn’t go back there even to visit. I live in Florida where law-abiding citizens have the right to carry concealed weapons, inmates must do 85% of their sentence and the rate of violent crime is falling like a stone.

      3. starvinmarvin says:

        Thou shalt not kill. This verse is among those most twisted and misused.
        The actual Hebrew language in which the commandments were written used the word for “murder,” not “kill.” Thou shalt not murder.
        As far as the bible is concerned, there are right reasons to kill someone. Jesus even ministered to and performed a miracle on behalf of a Roman centurian. And of course, God has killed very often himself, and he does not sin.
        Murder is the taking of innocent blood, like abortion.

      4. MDWhite says:

        Typical intellectual psycho-babble blah.blah.

        FYI: It’s “Thou Shalt Not Murder,” not “Thgu Shall Not Kill.” There’s a big difference. And as for legislating morality, it’s done every day…cannibalism is illegal, so is slavery in some other cultures. Genuinely civilized peoples have to “legislate morality” and have standards because the alternative is total chaos.

        And I have no desire to turn our society to people who deal in moral equivalence and absolutely no sense of social responsibility.

      5. Prepper Preacher says:

        unfortunately, humans are neither rational nor logical so i’m for using capital punishment as a deterent to crime…

        Southern Libertarian, have you tried to deal with a drug addict who needs anither hit that has broken into your home. Rational and logic are not going to protect you. That gun, the prison system and or execution will. Maybe you should use some rational and logic when making comment about something you know nothing about.

      9. Alan Funkle says:

        everyone supporting violence is an idiot in any form, even in the name of justice. a law is something you practice, not something you enforce through fear or terror. secondly thiers a hidden law about the evolution of technology wich makes weaponry + evolving technology + using weaponry a very bad thing for all. not very big picture thinking. the problem is voilence simply escalates and technology keeps evolving. we really dont need a situation here like in isreal with moralistic uses of violence. people laughed at the atom bomb idea, with technology evolving every day it seems saner to be a pacifist and hug a tree. dont expect other people to behave in a way you are willing not to for those that support punishment and the law of hypocricy means people who support punishment will always find a way to bend rules and pervert the system. the highest example of a moral code is one that is encourage through self practice. anything else is hypocritical nonsense.

      There has never been a repeat offender when the death penalty is enforced.

    7. freecheese says:

      Non violent felons shouldn’t be in PRISON to begin with. Many are very nice people who made bad mistakes, ie” DUI arrests or cultivating pot in their homes. Stupid laws.
      Those people should be under house arrest, and have to pay a monthly fee for their monitoring by the court.

      1. T says:

        @ free cheese – now that really isnt a bad idea – we shouldnt have to pay for monitoring to begin with – however if its the 2cd or 3rd DUI – I think they should be in Jail – at least to protect them from killing themselves or some one else…..obviously – they didnt learn anything the first time ….

      2. freecheese says:

        How long do you want to keep them in jail? Where I live, felohy DUIs get 1-year house arrest. They have to pay $300. per month monitoring fees. After house arrest, they have to attend one year of AA meetings and 100 hours of community service, plus while serving supervised probation for three years , and during those 3-years, they have to pay $95.00 per month to the Department of Corrections for “supervision fees.”
        That’s a lot better than the taxpeyers paying for their food, board and unlimited free health care !
        If they don’t cut it after that, yea, throw them in the can for a long time.

      3. T says:

        that doesnt sound bad at all, what state are u in ? That sounds like a great way to get things done IF the city you live in COLLECTS those fees -we seem to have a problem with that here –

    8. jimonthebeach says:

      Fred, you live in California, an asylum run by the inmates. In California, only the criminals and the cops get to carry guns and the cops are afraid to use them. Hell, the West Hollywood city council who have been actively recruiting the fashion industry just shot them in the head by banning the sale of furs. California would rather destroy an entire industry than offend the environmentalists. Why do you think corporations and wealthy tax payers are fleeing the state in droves. Have you not heard about the brain drain? The smart people are following the rich. How’s that hope and change working now?

    9. WonderWoman says:

      Hey Fred Brown & Tamerlane

      Just for your information, over Sixty-five million Americans—or roughly one in four adults—have a criminal record. AMERIKA has the HIGHEST incarceration rate in the world. Locking up America citizens in Prison is BIG BUSINESS. With one of the most powerful lobbyist in DC, Business is a booming, and rest assured they are looking for new customers. Soon the AMERIKAS will have over ½ of the American population with either be in jail or will have a criminal record, will you cry for your own execution when you are the last one left?

      And just for your information, AMERIKA is now the number 1prison incarcerator of children in the industrialized world. That number is growing rapidly every year and soon AMERIKA will be # 1 in the world at child imprisonment.

      You two should probably stick to what you know best, and I would bet to say that is sitting on your sofa eating Cheetos and voting for your favorite circus freak on “Dancing with the Stars”.

      1. Meme says:

        Complete and utter nonsense. Where did you get the 65 million figure? It’s more like 2 1/2 million.

        According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) 2,292,133 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at year-end 2009 —

        it is America! not amerika

      4. WonderWoman says:

        Meme, You’re an idiot; the 65 million are those Americans with Criminal Records. It’s no secret that AMERIKA has the highest incarceration rate per capital than any nation on earth. Keep in mind that this 64 Million with Criminal Records are unable to participate and contribute to your already failed and doomed economy. Also, just a bit of other bad news for you Meme, the construction of new prisons and detention facilities in this country now exceeds the construction of educational facilities.

        You poor fool, endless wars and greedy arms corporations have sucked you dry, it’s like the sucking and slithering sound from silence of the lambs. Dollar printing, dollar depreciation, pathetic and doomed economy, who’s going to buy your worthless and useless debts, what will you do if China backs out? You don’t produce anything now except prisons, war machines, missiles, bombs, and stupid AMERIKANS like you who continue to believe the lies and illusions.

        I always find it hilarious at the number of people in this country who actually think that the Policed State is not going to have any effect on them at all as they themselves participate and contribute to the destruction of their own Constitution.

      5. WonderWoman says:

        Shannon

        In case you haven’t heard, you NO LONGER live in America; you live in the “HOMELAND”. Your American Sovereignty was purchased and sold right before your very eyes. Your country is being LOOTED beyond all comprehension, like nothing seen before by the eyes of mankind. With the Patriot Act and endless Presidential Executive Orders your Constitution is being dismantled.

        Just so you know Shannon, history has taught us that when a country has been looted, they don’t leave with the landmark Constitution intact.

        Velcome to za Homeland, velcome to Amerika. Now please show your papers and provide a blood sample so that we can data file your DNA. There is a ZERO tolerance policy for any resistance or non-compliance resistance will be met with full force.

        Enjoy your Stasi Policed State Shannon.

      Jim, the best part is this state can afford to give all of the prison guards huge pensions and benefits, they probably will be giving illigal aliens free college (second half of the “dream act”) give the environmentalists everything they ask for costing REAL jobs, yet they can’t afford to keep prisoners in jail.

    You may think you have a right to defend your life and property with deadly force, but your leaders do not think you have such a right. They will gladly make an example of your and your family to prove that you are in fact naked and helpless before the state. That’s where they want you, and CA has made great progress toward that end. They see the writing on the wall, and they know that when the system collapses there, chaos will ensue and average people will be the victims. They will plead with the same government who disarmed them to ‘do something’ about the raping and pillaging. At that point, the roundups will commence; armed gangs offer a perfect pretext for prison camps. The ultimate goal is to exterminate much of the lower class and the criminal class, while simultaneously disarming the productive class. Then the uber criminals in government will control everything and you’ll gladly lick their boots as they ‘protect’ you from the chaos they generated, on purpose. No one is this stupid and short-sighted: this is all intentional.

      @ the Stinger Wasp: California is much worse than Detroit. At least they aren’t living in tents.
      BTW – if any of you conservatives actually knew how to read, you would have read that the prisoners that are being released are NON-violent offenders – not the “killers’ that you describe.

      1. SAR2012 says:

        @ NonInsect: “Non-violent” parties whose crimes are bad enough to warrant incarceration may well: (a) be beneficiaries of plea bargains for more heinous crimes or (b) have committed crimes to which they cannot be linked sufficiently to satisfy “beyond a reasonable doubt” (look at the % of “unsolved” violent crimes – and the total only covers those which are reported!). Repeated DUI / DWI offenses include incarceration. Perhaps the perps are “non-violent” but they sure as Hell cause plenty of death & mayhem . . . especially the illegal aliens in the group.

        Appreciate the demonstrated proof liberals have less capacity for reason than the insects and thanks for playing.

You feel bad because of the current idiot in the WH, and the current criminal pretending to be AG … vote in 2012 for a return to constitutional principles … then you’ll feel better. Stop obsessing over conspiracy theory, you’re being sucked in by a self-serving ‘industry’ that you would do better to ignore.

    No worries – even though our employment rate is over the top, these folks will not pose a threat. After all, who’s gonna hire an ex-felon, let alone anybody?

    The mainstay of our country – small businesses – aren’t hiring. They are struggling to keep the doors open under the sheer weight of over-regulation, taxation, scarce capital and uncertain customers.

    So now, we have raft of people who are under the best of times, difficult to place back into the workforce.

    How are they going to live?

  38. Hank Warren says:

    Illegals and crime, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our rights:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama, vote for Ron Paul.

  42. Jack says:

    Not a bad idea, California will soon be Mexico minor + Embrace this, Mexicans always do so well where they breed. Look at South America, of there probelems right now can be blamed on Whitey, Matter of fact Whitey always keeps people down.BTW , how do you explain Asian’s accomplishments? WHy do you never see them begging?????

    1. REAL NATIVE says:

      Jack ass, You’re a racist tool. Always quick to throw the race card. You’re also an ignorant moron. Mexico isn’t in South America, not even Central America. Mexico is in North America. You’re in the wrong country if you don’t want to see Mexican-Americans. We are Natives to this country. That’s like going to Asia and not wanting to see Asians (Natives). Here’s a tip. You’d almost never see a “Mexican” in Europe. How ’bout you move your sorry ass over there?

      1. Jamal says:

        Yeah, like Mexicans aren’t racist and use the race card (by the way, Latino/Hispanic isn’t a race)

        Mexicans aren’t natives to Mexico. They’re just a breed of Spaniards who knocked up the actual natives.

      2. The Bobster says:

        Hey, bea ner, I don’t see any wetb ack signatures on the Declaration of Independence. The Apaches ran your kind out of the Southwest. You are unwanted invaders from Central America. Go back there.

    2. Chicago Nick says:

      Exactly, or Germans or Jews or Italians, or Swedes, or Russians, or any other European descended immigrants of Caucasian heritage. Because we’re all brought up in a work – get paid and earn ones keep environment for generation after generation.

  43. Jackie Lee says:

    Some brilliant lawyer should figure out a way to start suing the city for not upholding its legal obligation to protect its citizens. Every time someone gets hurt/robbed/raped/killed/terrorized/etc.. by one of these early released criminals, a lawyer should sue the county, city and state on behalf of the victims.

    They always seem to say: we can’t do anything until the early released criminal has committed a crime. News Flash: The early released criminal has already committed a crime and the city is going to let them out early so that they can prey on us again. You can’t unring a bell. As soon as someone is hurt/robbed/raped/murdered/terrorized/etc… they and their love ones are forever scarred.

    Guess what: the politicians making these decisions and smiling in your face while asking for your vote, do not live in these areas where the criminals are going to be released and even if they did live in these areas, they are very well protected.

    Parents, do you even have a clue what its like for your kids to walk to school while being terrorized by these so called “non-violent offenders”. Most kids don’t even tell you how scared they are. The politicians are kissing your babies while the thugs prey on your older sons and daughters.

    Obviously, the politicians are not going to do what’s in our best interest. All you have to do is look at the politicians track record. We Are being played big time.

    We have to protect our families and ourselves. It’s time to make some noise before it’s too late.

    Lawyer and parents DO YOUR JOBS!!!!!

  44. Leo says:

    Will all of you so called political experts quit rooting for Ron Paul. For God sakes the man hasn’t a prayer in winning . As for California, you reap what you sow. Enjoy your cesspool of a state.

  45. la says:

    We need more crime and homlessness in LA. It goes with our culture.

  46. Igor Doublebubblevich. says:

    Buy a gun, carry a gun, these parolees will be armed within 72 hours after release, like releasing 1000’s of WILLIE HORTONS.

    1. Vladimir says:

      Jehosh27 on October 20, 2011 Well, the cotsent is over now, but I think The Last Samurai would be great. You start off with a gun, and know next to nothing about swords. (how about the indian raid for the tutorial?) and as the game progresses, factions come into view, and you can side with whomever you want. Multiple, alternate endings, and even alternate fighting styles. Maybe Algren fights AGAINST the samurai at the end? it would be a very fun game, I think, especially if Bioware made it.

  47. Leo2 says:

    Be interesting to have a summary of the crimes committed by those being released!

  48. 5thcommjarhead says:

    This whole situation was precipitated by a FEDERAL Judge who ordered 60,000 inmates have to be released from California Prisons due to overcrowding. Most California, outside LA and the SF Bay area want to see the borders CLOSED, illegals DEPORTED and CRIMINALS remain in prison. Just closing the border and and deporting illegals would solve the problem. But LA and SF are owned and operated by the Mexican Mafia. I have no sympathy for Sheriff BACA and his Mafia cohorts and Mayors, they are reaping what they sow with their sypathies to the Mexican Mafia’s takeover of California.

    1. marot says:

      For non felony offenses illegals should be immediate deported, chgs. suspended, dumped across the border w/in 24hrs so appeal…see ya, don’t forget to write…

  49. smokehouse56 says:

    Just what the hell is the “military industrial complex?” You read too many comic books.

  50. smokehouse56 says:

    Just what the hell does “Wake Up America” mean? I’m 73 and have been following what the government is doing to this once great country for the last 6-10 years more closely than ever. Other than the voteing booth there isn’t a damn thing I can do about anything. Please don’t lump me with liberals. I’m offended by that.

  51. Waspy says:

    Too bad for all the unarmed white urban liberals of California. They will be easy prey for the Mexican gangs and the Mexican SUPER-MAJORITY.

    You lost your state, Caleeefornia. Enjoy the “change”.

  52. Waspy & Wealthy says:

    California only incarcerates felons at HALF the rate of the rest of the nation, as it is. Now, the convicts that they do manage to jail will instead be released back on themselves. LOVE IT!!!

    DIE BANKRUPT CALIFORNIA, DIE!!!!

  53. Norge says:

    California is showing the rest of the US exactly what is in store when 50%+1 want nanny-state style government and everyone too lazy to work wants the welfare or some other UNEARNED so-called ‘entitlement’. Open borders and no enforcement of US sovereignty. Now the rest of the country is at risk all because of CA. Personally I hope CA goes up in flames…they have it coming, then let the grown-ups from fly-over country come in and re-build and re-populate responsibily. F-em all until the smoke clears.

  54. Captain America says:

    Arm yourselves, it’s your God given 2nd amendment right! The Communist Peoples republic of Californicators have stripped you of this right but when faced with the life or death of yourself or your child, what are you going to do?

  55. Albert Barlow says:

    The politicians, the banksters and the good sheriff with his 90% pension are a far greater danger to me and mine, sorry.

    I hold them responsible.

      Amy D October 6, 2011 I must add a fitatsnac tip (From a chef) I learned about French Toast! Before just throwing bread into the mix make sure to Toast it lightly beforehand. Or depending on how many slices place on a cookie sheet toast in the oven. It will not get soggy and easier to handle! Taste better too Not sure if you knew that but I think everyone should know.

  57. Anon says:

    The Left is winning. The Michael Moore, Bill Mahr, Alec Baldwin, Van Johnson (The new darling of the Leftist Media), Barack Obama, George Soros, the American Unions. They are working hard for the destruction of America while you sit on the couch watching Jersey Shore reruns, The Kardashians, and Dancing With The Stars. Enjoy your third world lifestyle and your Government Overlords.

    1. The Bobster says:

      Turn the crimmigrants loose in their gated communties.

  58. Kevin Stowell says:

    Return the wets, that would be a good start.

  59. otto Brosz says:

    Solution’s very easy.

    (1) Segregate all prisons according to RACE – including guards.
    (2) No more weight rooms or any exercises.
    (3) All prisoners to be kept on low-calorie diets.
    (4) No caffeine or nicotine products permitted.
    (5) Old Black & White TUBE (CRT) TVs only, showing old programs.
    (6) Short, cold showers.
    (7) AD-SEG for the slightest infractions.

    Hmmm, and I wonder what races it’ll be to cause such trouble.. Seeing how some are uncivilized compared to others

  63. wolf says:

    As usual, liberals want to investigate law enforcement instead of the criminals.The most vociferous liberals have body guards with guns… such as Nancy P. and Barack O..

  64. Daniel Morgan says:

    Perhaps some of the liberals in Hollywood would like to offer these released felons a home in their huge, palatial mansions. Oops, I forgot, bleeding heart liberals don’t living in the world they have made.

  65. Sporty says:

    Take God out of the classroom,out of the colleges,out of all public life,this is the end result-lawlessness. These people do not understand that there is a living God out there who will punish sin and that eternally. They think they can get away with whatever-hey,what can man do to me?? Well, got news for ya….it’s worse than that. God can turn you into Hell forever!! You better wake up before it’s too late, quit living like the devil and get right with God! God doesn’t mess around. He isn’t going to “wink” at all this nonsense. There’s no escaping His judgements on your actions. The Soul that sinneth shall die. Don’t play the fool and think because nothing happened immediately that you’ll walk away scot free….there IS a judgement coming! Imagine…standing before a Holy God,with nothing hiding you or what you’ve done…all laid open before Him. How do you want this to end up? Better start living right!! You either let Jesus pay for your sins…or you pay for them yourselves for eternity…..your choice…..

  66. joe says:

    The problem is that we are jailing non-Criminals. Unfair dumb laws are sure to be ignored. Years and years of jail time for smoking a Herb is just plain nuts. The powers that be have known this for years, as well as any thinking person, but the Money from Constructing Prisons, Police salaries, Court Personel makes justice fail. I don’t see a spike in Crime unless you define Crime as smoking a Joint.

      Tell that to Rick Roller.

  68. Hussein Obama III says:

    The whimpy Lefties in California deserve to be mugged, murdered, beat up, robbed and raped. Maybe then they will understand the value of self defense. The lefties brought this all on themselves. They have only themselves to blame.

  69. Brutha V says:

    I agree with Sheriff Baca in that things are going to get really bad with the expected influx of criminals on the streets; however, he is a hypocrite in that he is against law abiding citizens carry concealed weapons to protect themselves. Watch this video to listen to his idiotic logic:

    Implement the Alabama solution and they will go home.

  71. Early Ardmore says:

    The legalization of all drugs will end most of the gang violence. If people want to do drugs that kill them, then that by its self will thin the heard on a voluntary basis. Allowing open carry will also thin the crowd of morons as they are eliminated when they are in the process of committing a crime. Deport all illegal aliens and send the violent ones to any of the islands the US owns with no chance of ever returning. Then start on the criminal cops and politicians.

  72. Howard Lee says:

    It will be hilarious to see LA overrun by criminals and illegals. I can’t think of a more deserving cesspool of crime and corruption. It would be nice if they started with Hollywierd.

  73. Boycott California says:

    Just today I bought two bottles of Chilean wine instead of a California one. Payback for their boycotting of Arizona. It makes me smile every time knowing that I’m not supporting a perverted bankrupt state that panders to illegals, leeches and perverted sexual deviants. May the few good people get out and may the rest burn in hell.

  74. DC says:

    VICTIMLESS ‘code infraction criminals’ should NEVER be in jail to begin with, either should the ‘rolling revenue officers’ be going around looking for anyone who crossed a ‘white line’ and now has to pay 200 dollars to the guvt worker pension plan.

    Excerise your ‘un/inalienable’ right to carry a side arm. Protect yourself at whatever means neccesary.

  75. Mark Godfrey says:

    OK LA, you want to lock people up for a plant. That’s fine, but it’s crazy expensive to do so. Prepare to pay lots and lots for no impact to society at all.

  76. Buck O'Fama says:

    Holy Habanero, een a sanctuary ceety??? AI Caramba, you must get Nazi Pelosi on the phone and see if she has any green energy money left over to sooth the natives restless nerves. Gosh, sure is fun watching liberals in charge, kind of makes my “I toldya so” pig piling. Peace out Obots, see ya in Nov. 2012.

  77. Logic says:

    Here’s a thought CUT the pay of the POLITICIANS.. I am sick of hearing cut POLICE.. let criminals out of jail early.. cut off the seniors.. handicapped.. but NOTHING about cutting their pay.. not just in LA but in ALL the states .. they are NOW the ELITE, prince and princesses.. Obama the king and the rest of us pay to KING and his court OUR money.. and they give that money to THEIR choice of who should have it.. SOON we will go to work and .. you won’t get a pay check anymore..you will get a welfare check and they will keep the rest.. I am less worried about he corporations than the GOVERNMENT.. but that’s just what they want.. as long as peoples angry is diverted from them they can do whatever they want.. People better wake up quick..they are being played and are to sound asleep to notice..

  78. stoptouchingthatmabel says:

    Here is how I see it bad people those are the ones who do bad things to other people should be locked in a box and not let out for a very, very, very long time. If this is too complicated for you then I suggest you sell your computer and buy coloring books with the money.

    About 1/3 of all prisoners in the U.S are illeagals. Build the GD fence.

  80. Steve says:

    PENAL COLONIES. Someplace hot and uncomfortable where they have to grow the food they eat or starve. Make prison a real deterrent. Three hots and a cot ain’t working!

    1. SAR2012 says:

      However appealing this may be (and I fully concur on making a prison term as unpleasant as possible within the limits of humane behavior), putting a prisoner in a situation where daily sustenance is dependent on factors outside of his control (weather, insects, human incompetence, etc.) is clearly outside the bounds of the 5th Amendment and, even more fundamentally, basic humanity. This is the realm of the Jap POW labor camps, Auschwitz and the Communist gulags. No, we will not go there. Put ’em in tents in pink underwear eating unappealing chow in horrible temperatures, yes, but not much more.

    2. T says:

      no steve hot wont work – alaska sounds much better ….

  81. desert dweller says:

    No problem, execute all murderers, rapists, child molestors and foreign invaders….should make LOTS of room!!

    1. SAR2012 says:

      Give the illegals *ONE* free pass; a majority of them are guilty of no more than violating our borders. Take DNA, fingerprints & other identification markers; if they come back, take ’em to the pit & put a slug in their head; it likely will make a real strong impression, if the identification testing is done in clear view of the pit or while a tape of executions is playing – only the real criminals will return and executing them is a plus for all mankind. Murderers, rapists, pedophiles, pederasts: no paroles, no plea bargains, but all other legal protections & the full course of due process. Then execution. Dead criminals are incapable of recidivism.

  82. zetto says:

    Hope I don’t have to use my newly acquired guns..I reside in a pretty decent area of LA,but there’s bad things happening everywhere.So,we just have to be aware of our surroundings and ready to protect our loved ones in case those bad scenarios happens to us.Good luck folks.

  83. ed harris says:

    Too bad we can’t just execute these vermin instead of letting them go.

  84. lonnie says:

    PROBLEM IS ILLEGAL MEXICANS , MORE THAN HALF IN PRISON ARE ILLEGALS , USA HAS TO PUT A END TO OUR BORDER PROBLEM . STOP ILLEGALS ENTERING USA . http://archive.newsmax.com/archives/ic/2006/3/27/114208.shtml

  85. lonnie says:

    70 percent in prison are mexican , like 18 percent are illegal mexicans , y not just deport them .

  86. freecheese says:

    I live on the beach in Gulfport, MS. If they don’t pay, they violate probation — THEN it’s off to prison for 1 to 5., but if there is injury or death — one goes to prison, for sure !

  87. CITIZEN says:

    THE ONLY THING LAPD IS WORRIED ABOUT IS , IT WILL DEMAND MORE TIME OF THEM TO POLICE AND SERVE AND PROTECT, THAN BE ON PRIVATE CALLS TO BE A CELEBRITY ‘S RENT-A-CPO, OR HOSTESSES TO A GRAND CONCERT OR GALA. SO, WHAT’S THE BIG MISTAKE?… OH, I KNOW REAL-HARD WORK

  88. j says:

    The DEA have been stealing drugs from evidence lockup and reselling them. It has become a popular way in the Department of Justice’s DEA to make extra money.
    They also steal from suspects for which they have created fabricated or coerced heresay evidence.
    With some of the DEA suffering under mountains of credit card debt they have started to think outside the box.
