    Dr. Krupp,

    Perhaps you can enlighten the rest of us. When was the last time a progressive program offered by the left (regarding prisoner rehabilitation in California) actually worked as intended?

      I can’t speak for Dr. Krupp but, from my perspective, they are all successful because the intended purpose is ALWAYS to have a program in place irrespective of purported efficacy. I once heard the Department’s approach described thus:

      Corrections throws hundreds of basketballs in the air–If one goes through the hoop, that’s OK too.

      In the 1800s in New York the Society for the Prevention of Pauperism had the view that poverty stemmed from “ignorance, idleness, intemperance,extravagance, imprudent marriages, and deficient childbearing practices” and that handouts and public aid would only contribute to the problem. They successfully lobbied the city and state governments to REDUCE aid to the poor. This effort was remarkably successful.

      Regarding drug treatment I know of two sure fire cures; old age and death. Incarceration however, is a good interim solution.

        That is terribly judgmental of you Doc. Just because a program WORKS doesn’t mean it should be implemented it it inconveniences people or makes them feel bad. Self-esteem is just as important for degenerates and criminals as it is for others (isn’t it)?

    The plan will, however, make Jerry and Darrell FEEL good about themselves. After all, that is what is truly important.
