76,000 California Inmates, Including Violent Criminals, Now Eligible To Be Released Early

May 1, 2021 18:00 pm · 81 comments

California is giving 76,000 inmates, including violent and repeat felons, the opportunity to leave prison earlier as the state aims to further trim the population of what once was the nation’s largest state correctional system, according to a report from KCRA in Sacramento.

More than 63,000 inmates convicted of violent crimes will be eligible for good behavior credits that shorten their sentences by one-third instead of the one-fifth that had been in place since 2017. That includes nearly 20,000 inmates who are serving life sentences with the possibility of parole, KCRA reported.

63000 reasons not to vote for Gavin in the recall vote.

PO'd May 1, 2021 at 6:32 PM

Looking at this nonsense, and article that follows about guns being fired on Hwy 4, and we are obviously headed for statewide mayhem. This is why you want a Republican governor. There is currently no restraint on the socialist dream seekers including state “leaders”.

Sam May 1, 2021 at 6:45 PM

gavin newsom should be arrested for willful negligence and defrauding the people of California. In addition to “deprivation of rights under color of law” for the COVID HOAX. And don’t forget the nursing home murders. This guy is a criminal of the highest degree. Where is accountability?

Aunt Barbara May 1, 2021 at 10:13 PM

Yes indeedy. Gavin’s message to all…CRIME PAYS!

what about those who were shot, died in motorcycle and car accidents, etc and were written up a died by covid? maybe try to learn something instead of towing the leftie/dem lies.

Hey, whitey – how you doing? Shall we repost your infamous racist rant from February??????

AnimalLover May 1, 2021 at 6:46 PM

These criminals, and new democrat voters, will need accommodations.
Is the Lesher being used right now? If not, house them there. OR, even better, house them in the now defunct Scott’s restaurant. There are toilets, a kitchen, plenty of seating, even booths, and several large rooms for cots. Perhaps expand the local homeless shelter to take over the Scott’s property.

Any body have an in with the “city council”? Here is your chance to make a great impression with our local representatives.

Matt May 2, 2021 at 8:15 AM

Whatever happened to having ‘good will towards men and peace on earth?’ Who are you to say these individuals do not deserve a second or even third chance?

AnimalLover May 2, 2021 at 11:22 AM

@Mat

Great point! Good will towards men/women and peace on earth is the best thing ever so in order to move towards that outcome, definitely give a second and third chance to criminals – at the door step of those who gave them the first chance to begin with. 😇😇😇

Fred May 2, 2021 at 12:03 PM

Matt – I’m assuming you’ll be the first one in line to take them in/house them, etc????

Or is this just more NIMBYism?

If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.

Fred May 2, 2021 at 9:00 PM

C’mon Matt – start taking in those freeloader felons for which you want to give a third chance.

I’m sure Bubba would “love” it! Maybe you would, too!

ClayDen May 1, 2021 at 7:07 PM

Maybe we could provide them housing with the illegals who have COVID.

Concord74 May 1, 2021 at 8:58 PM

Better yet why don’t those activist and liberals that rant and rave re: lack of assistance and housing take these future upstanding citizens into their homes??! These liberals must have access to Soros financing to provide space, eh??

Hill May 1, 2021 at 7:16 PM

He is already closing one prison claiming not enough inmates. If he releases more then closes more, there will be not place to put criminals. Of course once crime is so bad he can raise taxes to build more prisons. Same kind of scam he was pulling with the gas tax. Put people in a position where they feel they have no choice but to have a big increase . Then when people complain he says ” this is what the people want, they voted for higher taxes “.

Worried May 1, 2021 at 7:37 PM

Time to load up on ammunition between the felons being let loose into the community and all the illegal aliens pouring over our border we are on our own not to mention the no borders people the abolish the police people we are so much less safe now than we were under President Donald Trump the best president ever

Concord74 May 1, 2021 at 9:03 PM

I have been checking Big-5, sporting good stores and gun shops and they all tell me that they are unable to get re-supply! I even asked about acquiring a SIG SAUER 0.45-cal semi and I am told weird stories re: the availability of same weapon.
Strange …….

Anonymous May 3, 2021 at 3:44 PM

Guns and ammo are mostly unobtainium at this point. Between the COVID lockdowns and the election of a known gun-grabber, supplies in both guns and ammo are short. 9mm is going for up to $0.75/round. I have seen as high as $1.00/round. This is up from $0.15/round a couple of years ago.

So, if you’re not stocked up now you will pay a premium IF you can find anything.

The 2nd best option at this point is to order online and have the ammo shipped to a gun store where you can pick it up.

The best option is too obtain the required federal and state licenses and have ammo shipped directly to your home. This is still legal in California if you have the two licenses.

The Federal license is called a Type-03 FFL (Curio & Relic FFL), and is easy to get. The state license is called a CoE (Certificate of Eligibility), which is straightforward to get as well. Once you have them both, you mail copies to your preferred ammo dealer and you can have the ammo shipped to your home.

And the Curio & Relic FFL has the added benefit of allowing you to order old long guns on the web and have them shipped directly to your home as well. Mausers, Mosins and things like that. If you can find them. No handguns, however. This *is* California.

Who in California is giving 76,000 inmates early release?

Why are police personally responsible and liable for how they do their jobs, but the clowns who signed or lobbied for letting out all these prisoners early are not?

Badge1104 May 1, 2021 at 8:08 PM

This state has gone totally crazy with the liberals and control! Does anyone out there really think this going to make the rest of us citizens safer? I am personally afraid. Crime is getting bad enough already with no one going to jail anymore for crimes they do and now you can let out all these extra criminals.
It’s going to feel more pleasant to jump into a cesspool then have to live in the “new ” California! I will never vote for another Democrat again! They are actively & deliberately ruining the state.

e.bunners May 1, 2021 at 8:09 PM

The Democratic Party of once upon a time is no more. Our law Enforcement put their lives on the lines every second of every day, no if ands or buts about it. If they do not get the support they deserve to do their jobs as as been the case politically for years, but especially now, it’s past time for me to change parties, so I will. When I mediated between the Union and City Hall, @28, it wasn’t because of politics, it was because the Chief told me I knew how to stay calm, was trusted by the Officers and him and had knew then how to genuinely talk to City Hall, they listened. It’s time for me to vote Republican.

75,000 criminals to be released from prison is good news for democrats. Here’s why:

1) 75,000 more votes for the next democrats running for office
2) 75,000 more ladies/gentlemen to marry your liberal off-spring
3) 75,000 more criminals to help burn, loot, murder the neighbors you envy because they are more successful that you.
4) 75,000 more voters that will support newscum in the recall effort
5) 75,000 more criminals that will breed and whose offspring will make your loser offspring look good by comparison.

“Republican state Sen. Jim Nielsen, who once headed the state parole board, criticized Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration for unilaterally deciding to make the changes”.

“He’s doing it on his own authority, instead of the will of the people through their elected representatives or directly through their own votes,” Nielsen said. “This is what I call Newsom’s time off for bad behavior. He’s putting us all at greater risk and there seems to be no end to the degree to which he wants to do that.”

MrX May 2, 2021 at 12:23 PM

More leftist lunacy. Anyone supporting this should request that a bunch of these violent criminals be released into their neighborhood. Of course they won’t so they get released into poor neighborhoods to victimize those unfortunate residents.

Cautiously Informed May 2, 2021 at 12:27 PM

The democrat government officials, especially Greasy Gavin, are all basically morally corrupt degenerates. There is no difference between them and the criminals that inhabit prisons.

WCreaker May 2, 2021 at 1:18 PM

Under Federal orders to reduce prison overcrowding. So answer is to release inmates. But wait, we released too many so now we have to close some prisons. Who understands the full story? Asking for a friend….what if we kept more prisons open, wouldn’t that reduce overcrowding? The friend really wants to know before he votes to throw out Gavin.

Cautiously Informed May 2, 2021 at 2:11 PM

Just another of many reasons to recall Governor Gavin, the Ken doll.

“He´s doing it on his own authority, instead of the will of the people through their elected representatives or directly through their own votes,” Nielsen said. “This is what I call Newsom´s time off for bad behavior. He´s putting us all at greater risk and there seems to be no end to the degree to which he wants to do that.” …

“Meantime, officials announced in mid-April that they will close a second prison as a result of the dwindling population, fulfilling a promise made by Newsom. California Correctional Center in Susanville will close by July 2022. Officials announced last fall that Deuel Vocational Institution in Tracy, east of San Francisco, will close by this October.”
dailymail https://tinyurl.com/ynm2khtx

As state Prisons are closed the overcrowding will continue, so DEMs will release more. There is one group advocating closing TEN state Prisons.

“He´s (newsom) doing it on his own authority, instead of the will of the people through their elected representatives or directly through their own votes,” Hmmm, wondering why, you are ?

OR is there another motive, an all this is a smoke screen ? ? ? ?

Words planned and premeditated come to mind.
Ya see liberals have the habit of when they can’t get done what they want, by passing a bill, proposition or with an executive order that might get a governor recalled. They create a crisis situation. Then out of the blue a lawsuit is filed and so once a Court rules, they can say a Court is making us do this. Judicial system gets the blame and those who caused lawsuit in first place get what they wanted to happen, all along.

“California’s San Quentin State Prison had zero coronavirus cases, until an inmate transfer in May sparked one of the worst outbreaks in the state and the country. Authorities are now scrambling to contain it. ”
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-53476208

LA Times in a 22 July 2020 article called it “… one of the most disastrous prisoner transfers in state history.”

Here’s the cherry they may be after,
San Quentin state Prison sits on one of the last Large parcels of undeveloped bay side real estate, worth Hundreds and Hundreds of millions of dollars.

“Yup, . . . . watch him eventually “decompress” population at San Quentin to zero then into condominiums going for many millions of dollars each. Perhaps making some very long time campaign contributors very happy.

There will be more “justification” to close Q,
Too few inmates to justify keeping it open.
They’ll say costs to operate San Quentin prison are too high and state will save hundreds of millions by closing it.
Time will tell if condos get built on land San Quentin now sits on.

Caskydiver May 2, 2021 at 7:21 PM

What burns me is that sooner or later when crimes are committed by these people, you will hear victims complaining and, by extrapolation, a majority of those complainers would have voted for the idiots instituting these policies. You get what you collectively vote for.

Newsom and the rest of Joe Bin Lyin and Heels Up Harris are so full of themselves. They all deserved to be recalled and cut the crap about how much it will cost to do. They spend our tax dollars with no care to the rest of us on a daily basis. What the heck everyone knows just come to the US and get everything for free on the backs of the foolish folks who obey the laws and pay their taxes and above all work legitimately for a living and do not such off the tit of America.

Just keep releasing the prisoners and let the rest of us try to protect ourselves and our homes/possessions. America is a disgrace. You cannot blame people to now have to protect themselves on their own.

Hope all of you are happy who voted for these fools who are taxing us to death. Wake the heck up.

Good behavior used to be able to reduce your sentence by 20% and will now reduce it by 33%.

Someone serving a ten year sentence can get out in 6.6 years instead of 8. Someone serving a 20 year sentence can get out in 13.3 years instead of 16.

chuckie the troll May 3, 2021 at 10:03 AM

California has inspection stations on our borders with other states to prevent the importation of invasive plants, insects and diseases. When will bordering states do the same, with them checking to see if people were released from prison without just cause?

More than one person has predicted that California will eventually be populated by the wealthy, and a servant underclass. No middle class to speak of. The ‘reforms’ to the ‘justice system’ we are seeing could hasten that process.

American Citizen May 3, 2021 at 11:16 AM

Cat'sMeow May 3, 2021 at 12:09 PM

Perhaps one of these inmates, convicted of violent crimes that will be eligible for good behavior credits, along with our new illegal immigrant neighbors, can run for one of our beloved local city councils.

Any elite, kind and caring liberals need their MacMansions cleaned or yard tidied? Perhaps they could fill some of the shortage of teacher vacancies, or become home care professionals at Rossmoor, or run our local daycare. After all, they’re just people too and deserve a third chance at our (racist) American Dream.
