I wish we would stop being fools about fighting crime.

Three strikes laws, longer sentences and restrictions on prisoner
rights are only kneejerk responses that have made the U.S. in general
and California in specific the most repressive "nations" on Earth.
Ultimately, we will all either be inmates or jailers.

People should support SB 79 and other legislation that rolls back the
evil we wrongly refer to as a "justice system."
