You fail 70+% of the time in your mandate, recidivism rate over 70%, yet the public keeps trusting you with the problem. wow! Follow the money, get behind and beyond the emotional hype; a lot of people eat well off of there being uncontrollable crime, yet you expect them to curb that which feeds them … really!

Cost of Prisoners – we’re paying for it!

1 Billion Dollars vs. 250 Million Dollars
Prisons vs. Students
More Prisons vs. Better Education

Each prisoner costs about 43,000 dollars per year, yet each school district is getting less than 10,000 dollars per student per year.

In a single word, WOW! The lawmakers are spending 4 times as much money to house a single prisoner, rather than developing the education of our youth. In addition, they would have the public believe that those funds… Continue reading

Description of what a 602 is:

Prisoners who have a problem with prison policies or actions must file what is called a 602. For their complaints to be heard by someone outside of the prison, courts, etc., a prisoner must exhaust the 602-administrative process; failure to do so will bar them from Court-Review.

2nd / 3rd Strikes & Contracts

Protect Children in Prison Visiting

At a time when the prison population is at an all time high, we “society” have deemed certain crimes more heinous than other’s. Sex-crimes against minors, which besides being exploited by media-outlets for shock/scare-value, many are not comfortable with discussing.

This includes those who have committed crimes against children, but please know… Continue reading
