San Diego Supervisors Oppose Prison Release Order
On Tuesday, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to oppose a court order for the state to release thousands of inmates from prisons in an effort to reduce prison overcrowding and boost the quality of inmate health care. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has been fighting the court order, which calls for the release of about 10,000 inmates statewide, including about 800 in San Diego County.
