    Without knowing the crimes and circumstances,
    it's difficult to say what success it will have.
    Hope springs eternal.

    At least the parole board reviewed the cases, instead of just opening the floodgates.

    For crimes no longer considered a felony today is key. Beyond that hard to say with little detail

    1. “Will save $12M...”
    2. “Crimes no longer prosecuted as felonies...”
    3. See number one.

    I do think we have to find ways to jail fewer
    people but not by ignoring low-level crime.
    Alternative sentencing would be better.

    So we just gonna act like these folks didn't commit a crime to begin with?? Cut years off the sentence they received, or now not even prosecute the crimes...interesting.

    I can see these with some drug possession crimes, of age prostitution..but theft, robbery, assault..I'm not seeing that working out well..we already have issues here in the Atl with the revolving door and sub 18yr olds..this will just make it worse. (it this trend catches on).

    That Governor has been kicking ass. I think he took a selfie last week in a tree stand bowhunting.
    2 teacher pay raises
    1 billion$ in their checking account
    Efficiency up
    Waste down
    Had his DHS director cut 400 positions and gave the other 3700 pay raises

    “This is really all about running a big service organization,” Stitt said. “And these state agency heads, there’s really no incentive. I’m trying to change the incentives to actually make decisions and to actually save money and deliver outcomes and to define success, because there’s really no incentive for them to make a tough decision, to fire anybody, to redirect, to reorganize. And that’s what I’m constantly trying to manage those folks running those agencies, that, ‘Hey, you’ve got to dig into the weeds and you’ve got to manage and you’ve got to think of things differently.’”
    Stitt requested, and the Legislature approved, statutory changes that allow him to appoint the directors of five major agencies. After learning 33 state agencies, boards, and commissions had spent $1.5 million annually on contract lobbyists, the governor also issued an executive order that prohibits agencies from using taxpayer funds to hire outside lobbyists.

    Anyways. They have 26,000 people locked up. As Montoya said saving 12mil (it's actually going to save 50 million). This is all a complete case by case basis. I saw a lot were for selling a few ounces of weed. I don't wanna pay to feed house and clothe you for years for selling weed.

    I don't think crime will surge in the state because of this.

    Wouldn’t act as if they didn’t commit a crime. Would simply ask what would make the biggest impact on reducing recidivism and would be economically sustainable. Our prison system is chronically underfunded, understaffed, and is not designed to reintegrate people into society. We have to either become more selective on who goes to prison or be willing to cough up more tax dollars to properly staff them. When I taught college classes in a prison, I was taken back by the number of repeat offenders who had minor misdemeanors upgraded to felonies. Wouldn’t consider myself soft on crime, but do believe we need to be selective and effective.

    How do we effectively remove the Culture of Crime from the souls of today's youth?

    Well maybe it would not work today but the old fashioned method was severe consequences for misbehavior. :D

    Think about that article for just a second. Points 1-4 are all about the data not supporting the perception. Then point 5 is all about how most crimes go unreported. So ... what’s actually factually known??

    Of funny, not so funny note, here the Atl Police Chief admits that if you have 34 cars broke into and property stolen in a neighborhood or parking deck on the same night, it is listed as ONE (1) Burglary, not that is also a reason for crime stats to be lower, it isn't just here.

    Cross between all the City's top level command, Mayor, PC, makes the crime stats fall...most are elected officials.
