Front Page: Judges to Release Thousands of CA Prisoners

  • A panel of federal judges has backed a one-third reduction in California's state prison population. As many as 57,000 people may be released because overcrowding violates their right to adequate healthcare, which has resulted in the unnecessary death of one inmate per week. — Los Angeles Times
  • Today Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will unveil the Obama administration's new plan to bail out banks. Geithner is said to have prevailed, over others on the Obama team, in resisting severe limits on executive pay and dictating how banks can spend rescue money. — New York Times
  • Peanut butter manufactures not affected by the recent salmonella outbreak are doing their best to tell public that their products are safe. — CNN
  • General Motors has announced plans to cut 10,000 salaried workers and reduce pay for those who remain by 10 percent, as part of the restructuring plan it must submit to the federal government in hopes of keeping billions in loans. — International Herald Tribune

As for Ca. prisons ah there goes that pesky Constitution again! We can't blame the courts for their ruling they did what they are paid to do, up hold Constitutional law. Ca. administration is screaming bloody murder because they have to answer to the political spectrum which surprisingly in many cases is willing to over look the Constitution. The epidemic over crowding is only a validation to all the people who have fought over the years for prison reform and warned of such a problem for over a decade now. The politicians had fair warning they chose dysfunction and political safety instead. Now it's come back to bite them in the @$$ and they want to shoot an accusatory glance at the court give me a break and do your F’ing job the court did theirs

California could likely afford to keep its prisoners in prison if it was willing to cut some of the ridiculous entitlements the state offers. Blaming it on the economy is worth a chuckle.

HA! That's a laugh, manufacturing jobs are disappearing because of taxes. Not because their are people in Malaysia, China, and the Phillipines that will work for nex to nothing.

It's not the stimulus bill that is causing this, it's the overcrowding in the CA prison system. Let's work on the root causes of the manufacturing jobs disappearing, which is taxes.

Clara, we don't have a clear idea who is being held at Guantanamo because the Bush Administration didn't keep organized records - one reason why there haven't been trials for these 'heinous' criminals. More than one court has asked for information and still is waiting.

Let's hold up the stimulus bill even longer so that MORE states can't afford to hold their criminals, so that MORE businesses go uninspected and send out dangerous products and so that even MORE people can become unemployed and more manufacturing jobs disappear.

Well, we're releasing some of the most heinous criminals ever captured from Guantanamo, why NOT release some from other places too!

If we are going to insist on detailed plans from the automotive industry on how they are going to use bailout money, I don't see why banks would be exempt from such a criteria.

And we patiently wait to see what Geithner has to say.

Timothy Geithner "resisting severe limits on executive pay and dictating how banks can spend their rescue money" At least somebody in that administration has some sense..... wish he hadn't lost it for a few years, but he's redeeming himself
