    States May Free Inmates to Save Millions

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Lawmakers from California to Kentucky are trying to save money with a drastic and potentially dangerous budget-cutting proposal: releasing tens of thousands of convicts from prison, including drug addicts, thieves and even violent criminals.

    Officials acknowledge that the idea carries risks, but they say they have no choice because of huge budget gaps brought on by the slumping economy.
    "If you can't place your shots on a non-moving piece of paper, how much more difficult will it be when that piece of paper becomes a 3-time felon whose sole purpose is to avoid going back to prison no matter what happens and no matter who gets in the way?"

    They have to have money to fund their various Socialist programs. This is a good way to save money so we can have more cash to fund Medicaid, Section 8, and all of our other socialist programs.

    Here in Oregon around the Portland area, this has been standard operating procedure for some time, now. Whenever there isn't enough room, someone less offensive gets booted out onto the streets.

    They've done this before in Utah, the bad news is that some of these guys immediately go back to their old ways, and good people get hurt and killed. The good news is some of the BG's get killed while committing another felony and most of the others end up right back in jail! I guess you could kind of say it works as a job security program for the justice department and all of its employees...

    I'm at a loss of any but sarcastic words.

    That gives me an idea, they have "Hunters for the Hungry" programs right, Maybe we could start "Reloaders for the jails" programs, instead of using a bullet puller if your load comes up a bit light, just send them off to the prison system so they can be unloaded properly.

    Just a thought.

    I like the open season idea too.

    Disclaimer: an idea like this doesn't deserve anything be sarcasm.

    Or was it.

    That would make shot placement much more important though...
