    Play the odds. Most of them wouldn't do anything good if released.

    If the age of consent is 16 or 17, then you're adult enough to know murdering someone is wrong. The pimp killer should be pardoned though. She did the world a favor and sounds like a goer.

    I learned right and wrong when I was about 8, I got caught stealing some baseball cards and got my ass beat. I didn't steal again. You know that killing someone is wrong at any age, especially at 16 or 17. They should have life, they should be executed and, as a society, we need to just move on.

    Pimps aren't people, at least the whore provides a service. Probably couldn't take the beatings anymore and took the money back, that she sucked strange cock for. Time served

    I honestly have no idea what the fuck happened and couldn't care less

    I'm guessing Sara Kruzan's story was the most sympathetic one of the bunch. That being said, the other 99% of offenders probably don't deserve a second consideration

    Fuck Leland Yee. He recently proposed SB249 in California which would have made thousands of rifles equipped with bullet buttons in the state illegal and subject to confiscation. Luckily the gun groups (and most sheriff departments) successfully lobbied the Legislature not to consider his bill and it was removed from the docket for voting before the assembly recessed.

    they were bad enough to earn a life sentence back then so they need to keep them in now

    It was a huge deal on the first place to even mention a sentence of that caliber to someone that young so let them rot

    or better yet, make them do slave labor to earn their keep

    we do not have enough slave labor in prisons where it is surely deserved

    and screw rerand yee in his chop suey hole

    I actually had to look up what a bullet button was... what a waste.

    One website actually sold magpul magazines that looked like they held 30 rounds but only held 10... wtf.

    Yeah it's silly but it prevents us Californians from committing felonies for owning an "assault rifle". And 30/10 mags allow us to have a rifle that doesn't look like a neutered puppy at the range.

    I'm sure the criminals use bullet buttons equipped rifles and 10 round magazines...

    There should be no blanket law that automatically frees 2500 murderers. They should be decided on a case by case basis. Girl kills her pimp and robs him, kick her loose after 20 years and put her on a long probation in lieu of finishing a harsh sentence. Now say a 17 year old kid did a home invasion and killed somebody, fuck em.

    Pot laws, man. Just legalize it and kick every non violent offender out of prison. Sorry for stating the obvious.

    That fuck has been trying to put through legislation that makes M-rated video games sales the equivalent of pornography. The supreme court shut him down after his fourth attempt.

    This is a good opportunity for a social experiment. Move them all into a quarantined area to live with one another and... I guess I'm just describing jail.

    Yep... When we lived in MA my chick got me that P226 with MA compliant 10 round mags. But due to her permit she had the honour of buying a standard 15 round mag.

    Oh not an issue in this state tee hee.

    I don't believe in Life sentences. I'd really like to see more "Automatic Death Penalty" statutes, and also think the Parole board should be modified to double as a Death Panel. So if the crime just misses ADP status, or occurred prior to the institution of those statutes, the panel can be empowered to send a non-rehabilitatable prisoner in front of a judge with a recommendation that his sentence be commuted.... to death.
