  •  re realignment, too... (0+ / 0-)

    Thanks for reading.
    Kate McCracken of CJCJ made a very thought provoking point to me after this went to press. If counties in CA would uniformly enact realignment's rehabilitation programs and we--i.e. Jerry Brown--offered enough support for them to provide adequate programming, we would not be looking at the same map of options; instead we still get his oh-so-passe, '90s-era tough on crime rhetoric.

    The disappointment here is really with Sen. Steinberg, who ultimately co-created this bill. Or, rather, flopped to Brown's demands.
