Life In Prison: The Cost Of Punishment

The intro refers to "the cost of California's "tough on crime" legislation." This implies that the extremely high cost of health care in prisons is the fault of the lawmakers and citizens. This is not true. The fault rests with the inmates who commit the crimes and federal courts who have allowed the Prison Law Office to make the Department of Corrections their goose that lays golden eggs. If you research you will find that, per capita, California has less inmates (per 1,000) than about 20 other states. Our prison population is huge because our state population is huge.
