  1. Hilarious how during the past city council meetings, the supporters spoke about how rehabilitated these criminals were and how they are supposed to have a “low propensity” to commit crime again.

    How blind are people these days?

    Reminds me of one of Aesop’s Fables, The Farmer and the Viper..

    The story concerns a farmer who finds a viper freezing in the snow. Taking pity on it, he picks it up and places it within his coat. The viper, revived by the warmth, bites his rescuer, who dies realising that it is his own fault.

  2. For those who may not know what the above (AB) 109 is in reference to like myself here it is:
    2011, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed Assembly Bill (AB) 109 and AB 117, historic legislation that has helped California to close the revolving door of low-level inmates cycling in and out of state prisons. It is the cornerstone of California’s solution for reducing the number of inmates in the state’s 33 prisons to 137.5 percent of design capacity by June 27, 2013, as ordered by the Three-Judge Court and affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court. All provisions of AB 109 and AB 117 are prospective and implementation of the 2011 Realignment Legislation began October 1, 2011.
