Yet another article on the threat to public safety by release of prisoners. Even I am surprised by number of bad guys already let loose on the public.
The state has reduced its prison population by more than 46,000 inmates since 2006, with more than half the decrease due to a 2-year-old state law that is sentencing lower-level criminals to county jails instead of state prisons. But the population remains about 9,400 inmates over the level required by the courts.
The state has said it can whittle the population further by the end of the year but would remain 2,300 inmates over the court-ordered number.

Emphasis added by me.
Instead of building more prisons our elected officials are trying to disarm the public.
My solution is to release all the prisoners in the neighborhood where the judges live and see how they like living with their rulings.
