SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - U.S. judges on Tuesday told California to prepare to release more than 40,000 of its 150,000 inmates to reduce overcrowding in state prisons, which suffer from massive healthcare problems.
The cash-strapped state already plans to release ailing and short-term inmates for budget issues. That would clear up to 37,000 beds over two years, estimated California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Secretary Matthew Cate.
But he said an order from federal judges would set a "dangerous precedent" and argued at a news conference that California had cleaned up prisons and hired medical professionals to fill chronic gaps that had left prisoners without adequate physical or mental care.

Release them at the federal courthouse where these judges have their offices.
California’s releasing their massive prisoners?
Why? Goode Olde Charlie should be be appointed to a Federal
Judgeship. He’d fit right in!
Good idea! Send them to Michigan so they can join the Gitmo crowd?
What is that, page three or four of the playbook?
the state of Kalifornia is not in charge of it’s prison system.
Arnold gave control to the federal government a few years ago.
or Richard Ramirez.
Ca. needs to buy them bus tickets to DC... I understand that there are very understanding people there who will take care of them through community action programs, and if it so happens that some of them haven’t been rehabilitated? well, that’s the way it goes in DC.
And ammo is nearly impossible to find in CA.
That’s on the other side of the continent...
Hell spend the airfare. It would be worth it!
The pending case for a federal Bailout of Kally-Fornea.
Otherwise, every City up and down the West Coast needs to watch out for vagrants suddenly showing up at the bus stations...

The answer, of course, is for the governor to move the judges chambers to prisons, so the judges can live with their fellow criminals. But that would reqiuire Shwarzenegger to buy a magnifying glasss and tweezers to find his schwantz - in daylight. I’m sure his butch wife is hiding his manhood in the thimble jar where he can’t find it
It is rather old, worst part is it still works, oy
a better idea would be to release the state government.
So let me get this straight they’re going to release these guys because of the healthcare burden on the prison system. So who exactly is going to be paying for their healthcare when they get out?
“Then they guilt the citizens for not allowing tax increases....”
This isn’t guilting them...this is called THREATENING them.....
Here is a solution... BUS THEM BACK TO MEXICO !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, it is expensive to give transgenders the operation. Maybe they can hold off, these guys, for a couple of years. Just sayin. Give the state a little break. (sarcasm)
Ought to be good for gun sales nationwide.
Why prepare? They are perfectly harmless.... Right?
L la land ping
I am leaving California for good on September 1st. It looks like not a moment too soon, eh?
Screw that. Give them guns. In Afghanistan. If they want to escape, its up to them... other than that tow the line. If they do good, they get meals and a plane fare home... maybe some pay!
Just think, most of these guys are already gun wise... so the training coefficient has already gone down. The probably have real good survival skills too.... Heck, most are in premium fighting shape, working out and training 8 days a week so they can be tougher and meaner on the street!
Think of what we'll save in food bills.
Blackmailing the taxpayers for fun and profit.
The threats from our government keeps coming because they haven’t recieved enough extortion money.
Democrat and government union workers. Pay us, or else.
Get a gun. Kill the criminals. Police will come around in a few days for the body, or let the feral dogs have at it.
I have GOT to try that garlic prep method. That is the real deal.
I tried, it doesn’t work any better than just squishing it with the side of a big knife.
But damn, it looked like they sure ate well in jail!
