Editorial: California Does Not Deserve More Time To Reduce Population of Prison Inmates
An Orange County Register editorial argues that federal judges' likely response to a plan by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and Democratic lawmakers requesting three more years to comply with a court-ordered prison population cap will be "a unanimous 'No' ... [a]nd with good cause." The editorial continues that "California continues to operate the nation's most crowded prison system," adding that "the state deserves not even one year more, much less three, to comply" with the order.
