I'm in favor of that. As long as he doesn't go down the road of "social justice" leftists like Walt Leger trying to parole juveniles convicted as adults of murder after only 15 years incarceration.

Non-violent offenders should be more on the rehab and release cycle so we can have more prison space for actual violent criminals.

LA is home to the worlds largest prison population per capita.
One out of eighty six adults are in prison.
Putting prisons in the hands of private business will not aliviate this epidemic.

I kige this. And incarceration shouldn't be for profit. That creates a financial incentive to make government bigger (make more things illegal and give the prison industry more business).

In those cases where rehab works, great for everyone. And in those when it fails, you have all the evidence you need to lock their asses up for good.

A huge problem will be in the private or community rehab and maintenance programs. These kind of government funded projects always end up in the pockets of political cronies. At least with republican cronies, some rehab might actually occur. With democrats, the rehab wouldl be minimal and the government funds will build empires of political activists.

You don't think people profit off of the prison system now? At least with his proposal society may be able to benefit. There is NO benefit for paying $2500/day to keep a nonviolent marijuana user behind bars for a year awaiting sentencing beause our justice system is overwhelmed. I say NO benefit, but I guess there are a few such as the guards, owner of a private prison, and lawyer.

Like his tax proposals this is just something Bobby has pulled out of his ass. It's a talking point, not a plan.

Good in theory, but my concern would be that it will siphon money away from the far cheaper Drug Court programs in the state.

Sounds like a good plan. To bad it won't ever come to fruition. There is a lot of $$ involved for the private corrections companies. Seeing how most companies like Cornell and CEC make their money from guaranteed occupancies. If a major segment of inmates were to be released their guarantee estimates will go dawn and they will lose a ton.
