    Default At least 32,000 inmates to be freed in CA

    Supreme Court orders California to release tens of thousands of prison inmates
    The 5-4 decision represents one of the largest prison release orders in U.S. history. The court majority says overcrowding has caused 'suffering and death.' In a sharp dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia warns 'terrible things are sure to happen.'


    By David G. Savage, Washington Bureau

    8:56 AM PDT, May 23, 2011

    WASHINGTON The Supreme Court ordered California on Monday to release tens of thousands of its prisoners to relieve overcrowding, saying that "needless suffering and death" had resulted from putting too many inmates into facilities that cannot hold them in decent conditions.

    It is one of the largest prison release orders in the nation's history, and it sharply split the high court.

    Justices upheld an order from a three-judge panel in California that called for releasing 38,000 to 46,000 prisoners. Since then, the state has transferred about 9,000 state inmates to county jails. As a result, the total prison population is now about 32,000 more than the capacity limit set by the panel.

    Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, speaking for the majority, said California's prisons had "fallen short of minimum constitutional requirements" because of overcrowding. As many as 200 prisoners may live in gymnasium, he said, and as many as 54 prisoners share a single toilet.

    Kennedy insisted that the state had no choice but to release more prisoners. The justices, however, agreed that California officials should be given more time to make the needed reductions.

    In dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia called the ruling "staggering" and "absurd."

    He said the high court had repeatedly overruled the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for ordering the release of individual prisoners. Now, he said, the majority were ordering the release of "46,000 happy-go-lucky felons." He added that "terrible things are sure to happen as a consequence of this outrageous order." Justice Clarence Thomas agreed with him.

    In a separate dissent, Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. and Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said the ruling conflicted with a federal law intended to limit the power of federal judges to order a release of prisoners.

    State officials and lawyers for inmates differ over just how many prisoners will have to be released. In recent figures, the state said it had about 142,000 inmates behind bars, and the judges calculated the prison population would need to be reduced to about 110,000 to comply with constitutional standards . . .

    if they'd start snuffing the worst of 'em, they could probably get down to a manageable figure in no time...

    Well, call me crazy but if you're gonna be letting out embezzlers and tax cheats, I'd be okay with it as long as you keep the murderers, rapists and molesters in.



    On the other hand, I thought prison was supposed to be punishment. Sharing a shitter with 54 other guys sounds like punishment to me.

    So if I read the article correctly the conservative judges were against it. Guess we see which judges are level headed and which ones are activists.

    Crumbs. I'm glad I don't live in California. They won't release them all at the same time, will they? I have visions of them swarming out of the prison like locusts, demolishing all in their path...

    It's been difficult, because I can't find a true government listing, but I thought these numbers were interesting, if true:

    Illegal immigrants in CA prisons: 22,000
    Non-violent drug offenders in CA prisons: 35,500

    Space needed to be cleared: 32,000

    Where ever they go I'm sure their names will be used in absentee democratic votes come 2012.
    The illegals aliens in our prisons ought to have their feet chopped off and then deported back to their native land.
