Citing coronavirus, California may release up to 18,000 prisoners by the end of August

JUST THE NEWS: The state of California may see as many as 18,000 inmates released by the end of August in an effort to decrease prison population density and slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. 

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitations announced on Friday that “up to 8,000 currently incarcerated persons could be eligible for release by end of August” under new measures promulgated this week. 

Those releases would come after the state’s earlier “pandemic emergency decompression efforts” have released roughly 10,000 inmates already, measures CDCR Secretary Ralph Diaz said were undertaken “to provide for the health and safety of the incarcerated population and staff.” MORE HERE

  1. Are the parole officer’s going to make sure they are wearing masks, while they are being recruited for BLM riot’s? 🤔Just asking.

  2. California making room for those who don’t wear their mask and people who gather in large groups (BLM, Antifa, Illegal immigrants and Marxists are exempted from all mandates).

  3. But… but… but… It’s for their health. Commuting Roger Stone’s sentence was political.

  4. Because preventing prisoners fro the possibility of a chest cold, is WAY more important than the safety of the public.

  5. Governor Nitwit-Nuisance, or whoever made the decision says it will make us all safer. What the ????

    Too much dope smoking, too much dope smoking. The loonies are in charge now. Other than banging my head against the wall and screaming “Why?” each time, there is nothing else I can think of doing.

    I am frustrated and way beyond being merely dismayed.

  6. I say … just hook ’em up to all those surplus ventilators that Murder, Inc. Gov Cuomo didn’t get to use

  7. “The state of California may see as many as 18,000 inmates released by the end of August….”

    OR…..it may be as many as 1,000,000 prisoners released.

    They WILL use whatever means they have to hold sway over the people.
    They have their ‘allotted’ authority but they want ALL the power. Their brains are fried and their minds are beyond reach.

    Just like piss ants taking over your pantry they need to be squashed, sprayed or otherwise obliterated.

  8. It should be interesting to see how they try to spin the idea that the release of inmates and the massive spike in crime are totally unrelated.

  9. ok. Thanks for the heads up. Buying even more ammo now while we still can ahead of the purge years. My friends and relatives will need some too.

  10. Presumably there are a few arsonists in that 18,000 – sure you want to turn them loose on CA in the middle of summer?
