“ Officials in California say releasing prisoners will help protect the “health and safety of the incarcerated population.” Well never mind protecting the innocents that will impacted by this outrageous political ploy by a crazy governor...and silly me, I thought shelter in place was the new norm. What better place to shelter in place than prison? Too logical I suppose...I’m beyond angry at this point.

Of course, that plan will hasten the spread of crime in the state, but, most probably, someone weighed the importance of votes vs.the importance of safety for citizens. Votes won.

I think those of us, who don't live in CA, should have the right to vote them out of the "United" States. We can't just have a State like CA join the rest of us. I mean, the Governor, Mayors and a lot of the people in that State belong on an Island. The should be all by themselves. We don't need 18,000 of their prisoners jumping the Border of Califoristan and coming in to other States. Lets cut them loose! Put up a Wall, like the one keeping out Illegals, and let them do whatever the heck they want!

How do prisoners who can go nowhere get COVID? Prisoners get COVID from guards and visitors So to try to keep COVID out of jails we should monitor/test all non prisoners entering the jail. Simple, right?

Isolation from the public and cell-distancing would better protect the prisoners. Release is just a brainstorm idea from some dark leftist lair. The left likes it because they regard criminals as brothers in arms, and because release endangers the public. But why do officials bow and scrape before this idiocy?

This just shows how screwed up the leftist and liberal Democrats really are, as at the same time that they are releasing tens of thousands of legitimately convicted criminals, using the COVID as an excuse, they want the Republican gadfly Roger Stone, an old man with underlying medical conditions, thrown in a federal prison for years, a prison that has a COVID outbreak among its inmate population, for committing a politically based “process crime” that Congressional Democrats and their DC “Deep State” operatives themselves commit all the time with no repercussions.

I suppose they will be exempt from COVID-19 testing because it wouldn't be fair to make them have tests. The best thing that could happen to California is that it droped into the sea and cleansed it.

Many of these prisoners won't have a place to live once they're out. There are no jobs for most/many either, so how do you wonder many will "make a living"? The State recently transferred a bunch of inmates from one prison to another, and they ended up with a massive outbreak of COVID (part of the reason for the spike in positive cases). So, you have the social engineers creating the perfect storm with people not having a place to go, a job to do, and police being told they need to ease-up. I also presume they'll now be eligible to be counted in the census.

Real reason is to cut spending. Aren't prisoners already social distancing, and quarantined. New prisoners can be kept from the general prison population for 14 days. I fear California will turn into another hell hole. I is very sad what these Democratic governors are doing to their states.

The logic of these people just kills me. Release 18,000 felons so they can murder more people on the streets than the virus ever could? Sometimes I find myself imagining walls around California and New York with Coast Guard patrols of the sea traffic to make sure they don't escape the zoos they are creating. Maybe one day they can sell licenses for big game hunting trips inside the walls. The art of Taxidermy would make a huge comeback.

Rosen concluded saying the message of “Lean on Me” can be a foundation for a “decent” society. “If the point of a national anthem is to provide a mnemonic, a reminder in music and words of the ideas and values that this place is supposed to stand for, you could do worse than ‘Lean on Me,’” Rosen wrote.

The National Football League celebrated its 100th anniversary last year. This should be a time of self-congratulation for the brutal sport, which has no similar counterpart outside the United States. The NFL's megaprofits dwarf those of other professional sports in the U.S. The Super Bowl, not the World Series, is America's national sports event. The league has survived all sorts of crises in the past. It was one of the first professional sports to integrate its teams, doing so in the 1920s. But the integration unfortunately ceased, and the NFL didn't reintegrate until the mid-'40s, becoming one of the last sports leagues to embrace fully a racially-blind meritocracy.
