Empty Corridor In Jail

Who needs freedom when the state feels entitled to your cheap labor!

This is the attitude that one Louisiana sheriff has when he found out that a new law—set to go into effect next month—will release 192 “good” nonviolent inmates in his area out early.

According to KSLA, Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator is livid about these criminal justice reform laws and went on a tirade complaining that they are putting innocent people at risk.

“There’s ways and things that need to be reformed on the criminal-justice system, but certainly we don’t need to do what we’re about to do,” he said.

Back in June the state passed 10 bills as an effort to change Louisiana’s horrible reputation as the most imprisoned state in the country. However, Prator doesn’t care about public perception.

“The Legislature and the Governor have made a huge mistake. Many of those scheduled to be released have not been properly vetted and are a danger to our safety and property. Seasoned multiple offenders are getting a break at our expense.”

He also doesn’t care that these laws will save the impoverished state $262 million over the next 10 years by cutting their prison population by 10-12 percent. He’s wondering who is going to wash cars and cook?

“The [prisoners] that you can work, the ones that can pick up trash, the work-release programs—but guess what? Those are the ones that they’re releasing!” Prator fumed in a video clip of a press conference.

“In addition to the bad ones… they’re releasing some good ones that we use every day to wash cars, to change the oil in our cars, to cook in the kitchen, to do all that where we save money, well, they’re going to let them out!”

See it for yourself:

He really tried it.

KLSA also reported that Prator tried to justify his stance by serving up false facts such as the new laws provide for offenders to serve only 25 percent of their sentence and reduce penalties in many serious felonies and misdemeanors. He then provided a list of 33 inmates that would be released on November 1 who did not qualify for release until 2025. Their charges range from DWI, theft and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

But Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Correction Secretary James Le Blanc told the news station that what Prator said just isn’t true.

“It’s not like it’s some opening of the gates and everybody’s releasing here,” he said. “This is 1,400 inmates that are going to 21 different districts.”

He added: “I have all the respect in the world for Sheriff Prator. I just don’t know if he really knows what the numbers look like.”

Le Blanc also stressed again that those released are non-violent offenders.

“We can put people that need to be in these beds in. More violent offenders and sex offenders and people that we need to be dealing with and providing the adequate resources and programs to while they’re in prison,” he concluded.

  1. Honestly on said:

    These Neanderthal n!@@ers are going to be crushed to p!ss, sh!t and blood. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe. KARMA!!

  2. How in the backward thinking, wrong headed hell do people with these kinds of mental problems get hired for jobs like this one? There is something seriously wrong with this goober.

  3. Bigtye86, I have always said that the entire 696-KIDS hotline system was created to go against the parenting and discipline of Black parents. With all of the oppressive measures taken to try and keep us down, we were still turning out doctors, lawyers, teachers, social workers, etc. and the white devils could not understand how that was still happening. When they realized that it was the fortitude of and the discipline of our parents that caused us to continue to persevere over their oppressive ways, they had to do something about it. Did we have some that fell by the wayside back then – – of course we did but the numbers were no where near where they are now and that is a direct result of the limitation on our ability to discipline our children. And please, don’t anybody get me wrong…yes, abusive situations did exist but for the most part constructive discipline is what kept our family units whole and our children on the right path. And the fact that white folks crazy abusiveness was exposed mattered very little. To get to us, others are just collateral damage.

    Why do think they told you it was dangerous to spank your child at home are in school. If your child learns discipline and taught consequence for his/her actions they will most likly not become prisoners. There is know money in good kids, prisons make a lot of money off prison labor. Therapist make a lot of money writing precriptioons for ADD and ADHD when they really have BAD. No it’s not slavery you still have a choice to be a criminal are a law a biddening citizen. You have to understand once you are caught your sentence will most liky not be fair. You know the rules of the game stop walking in the trap.

  5. Well lease you can’t say they weren’t learning a skill, although liberals would say “they were being forced to perform jobs that illegals would be happy to do”
