Rioting California Prisoners Apply Basic Economic Principles to Their Early Releases

It appears that over 150,000 of California prisoners in facilities peppered throughout the state have been reading the paper.

With the ongoing California budget crisis it has been revealed by legislators that they would cut costs in the prison system by allowing early releases for inmates.

Well, it appears that inmates up and down the state have taken out their pencils and calculators and figured that if they cause millions of dollars of destruction in their prisons that more of them will be given an early release.

The more it costs the state to maintain these facilities the more released inmates.

A pretty simple formula that yes, even prisoners understand.
