Drug Moses To Governator - Let My 22,000 People Go

Posted By on Fri, Jan 11, 2008 at 10:12 AM


One out of sixty adult males is in jail in this country. That sucks ass. Now Arnie wants to kill two John Connors with one Termination by letting free 22,000 lower-risk inmates with 20 months or less left and save a bundle on California's budget. Guess who's pissed? Everyone.

"It's a betrayal," Spitzer said. "AB 900 promised us no early releases, and that's why Republicans voted overwhelmingly for it. Now, some people will be doing less time if they're sentenced to prison than if they're sentenced to county jail."

And on the other side:

Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez of Los Angeles said raising taxes should at least be part of the discussion "when you're talking about making the types of cuts that … in the end is going to put our public in danger."

You know what, fuck everyone. It's not like our ex-cons won't go back in for the same damned thing in a few years. Go, Arnie. Give them a break. -- VVM Staff

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
