Read it and weep. The State has very few tasks that it must do and a million that it would rather do. In California they have decided to deny any responsibility for providing for public safety and instead have embarked on endless crusades to spend money on things that simply are not the purpose of any sane government.
They lost their last appeal and now must turn predators loose on the population because the State could not find the money to house prisoners in accordance with the law. Nope. The state budget has tripled in 23 years but while there are plenty of billions of $ for high speed rail from nowhere to nowhere else they couldn't find the $ to satisfy the minimum requirement to house prisoners.
I'm pretty sure that if I was mayor of any town in California and had to empty my jail to make room for more State prisoners, I'd put them all in a hired bus and drop them off in Sacramento and San Francisco.
San Francisco has always prided itself on its humanity.
