    Supreme Court orders California to release tens of thousands of prison inmates
    The 5-4 decision represents one of the largest prison release orders in U.S. history. The court majority says overcrowding has caused 'suffering and death.' In a sharp dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia warns 'terrible things are sure to happen.'

    WASHINGTON â€" The Supreme Court ordered California on Monday to release tens of thousands of its prisoners to relieve overcrowding, saying that "needless suffering and death" had resulted from putting too many inmates into facilities that cannot hold them in decent conditions.

    It is one of the largest prison release orders in the nation's history, and it sharply split the high court

    Justices upheld an order from a three-judge panel in California that called for releasing 38,000 to 46,000 prisoners. Since then, the state has transferred about 9,000 state inmates to county jails. As a result, the total prison population is now about 32,000 more than the capacity limit set by the panel.

    Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, speaking for the majority, said California's prisons had "fallen short of minimum constitutional requirements" because of overcrowding. As many as 200 prisoners may live in gymnasium, he said, and as many as 54 prisoners share a single toilet.

    Kennedy insisted that the state had no choice but to release more prisoners. The justices, however, agreed that California officials should be given more time to make the needed reductions.

    In dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia called the ruling "staggering" and "absurd."

    He said the high court had repeatedly overruled the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for ordering the release of individual prisoners. Now, he said, the majority were ordering the release of "46,000 happy-go-lucky felons." He added that "terrible things are sure to happen as a consequence of this outrageous order." Justice Clarence Thomas agreed with him.

    How nice of the statist Supremes. They'll basically be opening a raw sewage valve on the citizens of CA. If the shills in Sacramento would shut the SoCal border, they'd keep most of the invading scourge in "Messyco" where they belong. As for the other untermenschen criminals, that's another huge reason for White nationalism.Edited by: DixieDestroyer

    For the record, all four Justices who voted to release a literal crime wave on the CA are democratics as well as traitor Justice Kennedy, who bats for the queer team most of the time.

    Throngs of confined Negroes and Mexicans initiating colossal "suffering and death"Â￾ while being "rehabilitated"Â￾ in America's prison system"¦difficult to fathom, huh? The propensity to inflict one's inborn malice is likely the reason their incarceration is warranted.

    Now, these unemployed, uneducated, unskilled, languid, violent trolls will have the liberty to thieve more white property, murder more whites, rape more white women, molest more white children, absorb more white-sponsored welfare, and erode more wholesome white communities with drugs, prostitution, and gang-warfare.

    If it wasn't a member of "Democrat, Incorporated"Â￾ emancipating (and/or pardoning) hardcore non-white criminals into white society, it was be Zionist, incognito-Christian anti-white zealots such a Mike Huckabee. Edited by: Thrashen
