Re: “State Democrats Move to the Right of Schwarzenegger

The prison guards' union (CCPOA) is legislating for California taxpayers. They buy our legislators with their deep pockets, and Heaven forbid, standing up to them would be political suicide because they'd label you "soft on crime".
Certainly, there are people in prison who are monsters and deserve top be there and never get out. But, eventually, 90% of them do return to society. Since when did we decide that punishment is more important than rehabilitation? Oh that's right, we didn't make that decision, the CCPOA did! They are the ones who stand to benefit by warehousing inmates, which is all we're doing now, and failing even at that.
When California is paying more for prisons than for education, EVERYONE should wake up and see clearly what is happening here. The fearmongering this group does is ridiculous. The politicians' rhetoric about "mayhem in the streets" is ludicrous. They're just repeating what the CCPOA tells them to.
