seriously, how is it that TEXAS is doing better with their inmate population than georgia? i know all you whites hate minorities, but this is just getting silly.
this quote shows the ridiculousness:
"One in 13 Georgians is behind bars, on probation or on parole, according to the Pew Center on the States. That’s the highest rate of correctional control in the nation and more than the double the national average: 1 in 31."
and here's someone with an idea:
“We have proven that we can be tough on crime and that we can spend $1.2 billion a year doing it,” said Brian Owens, the silver-haired former parole officer who now runs Georgia’s prison system. “But I think it might be time to transition to being smart on crime.”
wow, brian, ya think so?! MAYBE we shoulda STARTED OUT being smart on crime?! but this is joja, and we do things backwards down in these parts, boy.
also, read the article, not just these quotes, and educate yourself.
then if you're not a little outraged, you're probably late for the next NASCAR race and your hot pocket just finished microwaving.
