Read these powerful words from Justice Antonin Scalia and Justice Clarence Thomas:
“Today the court affirms what is perhaps the most radical injunction issued by a court in our nation’s history: an order requiring California to release the staggering number of 46,000 convicted criminals.”
Does anyone else find this troubling? The statist are again pushing authority onto the States unlike ever before. Should the Supreme Court be allowed to flatly tell California to release THEIR prisoners because the prisons are overcrowded? What safety threat does releasing that many people pose? How many of the prisoners in the California prisons are illegal? Can’t we just deport them instead? How much is something like this actually going to cost the state?
This ruling creates an interesting dynamic that could have damaging results. I just hope and pray it doesn’t result in the loss of life.
