Early release for non-violent criminals

-A +A
Regarding Assemblyman Ted Gaines letter about inmate release in the Press Tribune’s Aug. 26 edition, will someone please take out the mass hysteria of “early release?” What is the specific criteria for such a release? I too do not want to see violent criminals released but there has to be “non violent” inmates in this inventory. Those persons should be considered. Any significant percentage that fits this model should receive consideration and subsequent cost savings. I do agree on the administrative cost review as another starting point.
