Yay! We're all doomed!

Lawmakers from California to Kentucky are trying to save money with a drastic and potentially dangerous budget-cutting proposal: releasing tens of thousands of convicts from prison, including drug addicts, thieves and even violent criminals.

Officials acknowledge that the idea carries risks, but they say they have no choice because of huge budget gaps brought on by the slumping economy.

"If we don't find a way to better manage the population at the state prison, we will be forced to spend money to expand the state's prison system money we don't have," said Jeff Neal, a spokesman for Rhode Island Gov. Don Carcieri.

At least eight states are considering freeing inmates or sending some convicts to rehabilitation programs instead of prison, according to an Associated Press analysis of legislative proposals. If adopted, the early release programs could save an estimated $450 million in California and Kentucky alone.


Full Story

Awesome, so since the police force is fully staffed we shouldn't see an an increase in... oh no, we're doomed! Why can't we just have public hangings? It's free & instant solves the problem. You can't continue on a path of violence if you are stone dead.

Feed them to the homeless. Dump them in the ocean. Shoot them into outerspace. Give one to each boarder runner.

Welcome to the United States, enjoy your complimentary corpse.

What I find funny about this is that our economy is still higher than it was in 2003-2005 and back then we were not complaining about not having the cash to keep them in there.

But then again we didn't have a huge war to finance with money we don't have. Crazy Georgie boy there in the white house.

Edit: It is funny because I still say "we" when I have been in canada for over 5 years. :lol:

Stephen Harper (Canada's prime minister) is pretty much George Bush's stooge anyways. But luckily the Canadian people have enough sense to stop the politicians when things get a bit out of hand. The time they stop doing that will be the time that the US and Canada will finally be one. Then lookout!

I don't believe you really would denounce your citizenship over a political candidate? That's shallow.

Yes, I would agree that he is like Bush, but to say that you no longer want to be an American because he'll be in office is ignorant. Feel free to go to Canada, France, or any other "wonderful" nation.
