Unexpected! Confounding! [Darleen Click]

Proof of the death of basic reporter skills in modern J-school grads. From Ass.Press:

California counties are confounding the state’s court-ordered efforts to sharply reduce its inmate population by sending state prisons far more convicts than anticipated, including a record number of second-strikers.

The surge in offenders requiring state prison sentences is undermining Gov. Jerry Brown’s 3-year-old realignment law that restructured California’s criminal justice system to keep lower-level felons out of state prison cells as a solution to the state’s prison crowding problem.

The law initially lowered the state prison population, but the number of inmates is on the rise again — led by a record increase in the number of second felony convictions for those who already had a prior conviction for a serious crime.

Hello? You release close to ten thousand felons from state prison (and the claim they are non-violent or not sex-offenders is a crock) and you’re surprised at a sudden increase in reoffending?

Not one question to Gov. Moonbeam or his administration asking how many of these new inmates were previously let loose under AB109/prison realignment??

No no, let’s not build prisons or, at least, house prisoners out of state. Let’s waste billions on the graftastic choo-choo train to nowhere.

    expectedly unexpectedly.

  6. Long ago, the cartoon Southpark proposed THIS as the natural endpoint of Leftist Activist Crisis-Science!…

    Tragic absurdity wrought from a collision of heroic efforts, ignorance, cargo cult mentality, absolute dedication, definition of the self mostly as a means of advancing the cause, and wild angry desperate gestures of zealotry.

  7. Revolutionary Theory is always expected to supersede reality because reality is a lie woven by the bosses to advantage them in the class struggle and History will favor whatever is bad for those who impede the revolution.

    Thus we end up feigning surprise that unattended brush causes larger wild fires and that protected predator species can have massive local population explosions such as occurred with the alligator in Louisiana.
