As long as these inmates are required to live in these judges neighborhoods and not mine, I’m okay with it. Let them deal with the carnage. Perhaps they’ll then understand that prison conditions aren’t intended to be so nice that inmates want to return.
Good idea! release them so they can get the law abiding citizens who put them there. These are your elected officials at work for you! YOU DESERVE THE GOVERNMENT YOU ELECT!
