It seems that the state is blaming local DAs for running up the prison population. These rotten people are actually prosecuting criminals under the second-strike category which sends them to state prison rather than county jail. These two-strikers are being sent up the river at a rate about 1/3 greater than was the case prior to realignment.
The solution is obvious. The state needs to pass a law that requires local jurisdictions get permission from the Governor or the AG to prosecute second-strike and third-strike cases in order to make Jerry and his realignment hoax look good (or at least not so bad).
