State hopes new prisons, early release cut crowding

State hopes new prisons, early release cut crowding
I like to think I am tuff on crime and as Barreta said " Don't do the crime if you can't do the time." but Pa has a prison problem. The budget for corrections is the third highest expenditure on the states budget. I blame mandatory sentences that were passed by politicians trying to get our votes.

My solution is do away with mandatory sentences and let Judges decide, enforce the 3 strikes law and put away violent offenders for a long time. Take the surplus money and invest in training programs. Sounds simple to me....
