I agree with you, specially the segment about your son and treatment. They do not have enough personnel to offer programs in the prisons, and why send an inmate at minimum security institution to a bigger prison where the real criminals, hard core criminal and reside with them where he might not even to get his name at the top of the list, he will be released without the program or treatment, but they have to experience living with the real criminals? Yes, jail is a "wasted time", burden to the State's budget, offered Measure 57 to the voters it won, and for what? For nothing because now they want to delay it two years? Let the non violent inmates go home and start productive lives, even with a program, it's up to individual to amend his errors and mistakes, instead of having a cruel learning experience at a large prison with killers, child molesters, etc.
