Jerry Brown is brown-nosing the prison guards in his quest to become CEO of one of the largest, most expensive and worst-performing penal colonies in the world.
In this undated photo released by the California Department of Corrections, inmates sit in crowded conditions at California State Prison, Los Angeles. California’s prison secretary on Friday, Feb. 2, 2007, said the state will force the transfer of up to 5,000 inmates to other states, an indication that an order signed last fall by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has fallen short of expectations. Corrections Secretary James Tilton said the action is needed to relieve overcrowding that threatens the safety of guards and inmates in the nation’s largest state prison system.
