Re: Darn, thought our socialist president and his minions could pay off the debt

I was under the impression that you were originally talking about sheriff joe's county jail (tent city).  Excuse me I was wrong.  You bring up statistics from PRISONS.  I apologize for not being able to read your mind and catch all your subject changes.  I will endeavor to do better.

Re: Darn, thought our socialist president and his minions could pay off the debt

Well, I couldn't find stats for sheriff Joe's jail, so I went with what I could find.


HOWEVER, I think you actually proved my point.  You said that the majority of Sheriff Joe's prisoners are not re-arrested, and also that he doesn't handle the dangerous prisoners, which I assume to be the non-violent type.

So, assuming what you said was right, and going by the stats I provided, Sheriff Joe does a FAR better job than average as far as prisoner reform goes.

Just look at the stats:

US average

77.4% rate for stolen property possession/sales re-arrest rate

78.8% of viechle thieves

70.2% of robbers

and the list goes on.

All far more than half.  If Sheriff Joe is keeping most of them from repeat offending, as you said, he should be applauded for not only saving big money, but saving money, while having a far greater success than the average.

 

Speaking of subject changes, I'm still waiting for when the GOP cut Medicaid/Medicare

I linked to an article to where Obama, Pelosi, and Reid all pushed for, and got signed, a bill that cut 318 Billion from there.  I belive you said that the Dems sure didn't do that, or did I read you wrong?
