Editorial: State job applications for inmates just makes sense

‘Offender Contender’ modeled after ‘Motor Voter’

Sacramento Bee
Assemblyman Roger Dickinson, D-Sacramento, is carrying another bill that seeks to reduce the recidivism rate for ex-offenders by improving their job prospects. Assembly Bill 1844 would require the Corrections Department to make state job application forms available to inmates.

Modeled after the enormously successful and cost effective National Voter Registration Act of 1993 or “Motor Voter” program, the bill has been dubbed “The ‘Offender Contender’ Anti-Crime Act of 2012by the author.

Dickinson presented the Bill as a companion measure to AB 1831, currently pending committee action, prohibiting public agencies from inquiring about criminal history on job applications.

    These idiots cannot even balance the budget and they are worried about giving inmates and application for a job Who in their right mind would hire a molester, rapist or drug dealer. You actually think these criminals would continue making minimum wage when they can make ten times more selling drugs or what ever? They will eventually go back to doing what they did that got them thrown in prison for more money. No wonder this state is going down the tubes.

    OK. Most of you noticed this post is listed under the category “Humor, Parody, Satire.” AB 1844 “The ‘Offender Contender’ Anti-Crime Act of 2012″ is a hoax Paco crafted to parody the equally ridiculous AB 1831

    It is getting harder to get a QUACK out of the readership and that’s a good thing.

    I heard that Meg Whitman is going to further her plan to privatize the prison system. She is making plans to buy up the new Folsom Womens Facility near FSP and she is planing to hire parolees to work there and she is going to pay them with EBT cards.
    GO WHINNY!!!!
