We Use Them To Wash Cars.

Sheriff Steve Prator of Caddo Parish, La. is mad as hell. The sherriff is mad because new new justice reform laws will go into effect in November. The new reforms will force the release of hundreds of prisoners convicted of nonviolent offenses. The JRI (Justice Reinvestment Initaitive) was established to save the states the cost of incarceration and reinvest the money into alternative programs to aid individuals in becoming better adapted at integration back into society. Presently there are 27 states signed up for the program which is administered by the Dept. of Justice. Sheriff Prator has other ideas about the policy, ” Simply put the state of Louisiana is risking our safety for bragging rights and to save money. The ones that you can work, the ones that can pick up trash, the work-release programs, but guess what? Those are the ones that they’re releasing! In addition to the bad ones and I call these bad,  they’re releasing some good ones that we use every day to wash cars, to change the oil in our cars, to cook in the kitchen, to do all that where we save money, well, they’re going to let them out!” The sheriff obviously has another meaning for the word justice.
