Diary

I was going to write a diary about my car life, but this is much more important.

Poll



Paris Hilton
out of jail. Is this the shortest 45 day sentence evar?

Mccann
The UK national press seems to be full of false outrage, just becuase some German interviewer asked the Mccanns if they had anything to do with the diappearance of their daughter. If the police haven't considered them as suspects, then they're not doing their job, because it's not normally strangers you should be afraid of, it's your friends and relatives.

The California prison system is so utterly fucked up and overcrowded, that this *is* pretty much how average people convicted of such crimes are treated.

i will agree with you... by clock (2.00 / 0) #18 Thu Jun 07, 2007 at 09:04:38 AM EST
...to an extent.  but until we get laws off the books that make carrying an oz of pot punishable with prison time, put her ass back in the can.

I know of no developed country by ambrosen (4.00 / 1) #24 Thu Jun 07, 2007 at 12:34:15 PM EST
Which has any neighbourhood where the greatest cause of violent death is something other than bad driving, excepting lower Manhattan.

Is there any reason why the cause of these deaths shouldn't involve custodial sentences? I'm thinking they warrant an entire war on terror, myself.

yep by dr k (4.00 / 1) #16 Thu Jun 07, 2007 at 08:49:42 AM EST
In case the rest of the world hasn't heard about it (and why would they, since no one reports these kinds of things anymore), pretty much the entire California prison system has been found unconstitutional. Overcrowding, a shortage of medical care, a permanent "emergency" ban on media contact with inmates. All of the "rehabilitation" aspects of the system have been privatized -- you know, the stuff where people go into the jails and teach math and art classes -- which has made them effectively nonexistent.

The Governator has been reforming the state prisons, but only because he is under legal pressure to do so.

Much of it by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #17 Thu Jun 07, 2007 at 09:01:24 AM EST
Is caused by the lack of money to build the prisons to house the numbers of inmates caused by the three-strikes laws, and a refusal of people to accept new prisons in their back yards.

Pretty much the same as the causes of California's fucked up energy system.

long term failure by dr k (4.00 / 2) #21 Thu Jun 07, 2007 at 09:51:37 AM EST
But if the prison population is increasing at a faster rate than the state population, this means that, regardless of three strikes laws et al, we are looking at a long term failure in education, in drug policy, in rehabilitation, in justice, and in fundamental social institutions. Now we are simply resolved at having 5% of the population in prison.

Oh well.

You have to ask yourself by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #15 Thu Jun 07, 2007 at 08:46:55 AM EST
Do you feel lucky, punk? Is justice, True justice, something we really want? Do you want True Justice for the things you've done?

oh come on by webwench (4.00 / 5) #12 Thu Jun 07, 2007 at 08:04:23 AM EST
The poor girl cried for like three days, and the food was, ugh, horrible, and she couldn't have her cellphone, and she had just, like, three tiny lankets, and she had to useone of them as a pillow, and she had to take out her blue contacts and walk around without makeup and stuff, and would you believe they don't even have a salon in the big house?

Hasn't the poor thing been punished enough for just a minor traffic offense?

FREE PARIS!

Not being photographed, filmed or talked about for a year. Or does that count as "cruel and unusual"?
