There are a lot of articles on this issue, between out of State prisoners and In State Prisoners, the actual number is $10 BILLION in Fraud!!
When a felon’s not engaged in his employment
Or maturing his felonious little plans
His capacity for innocent enjoyment
Is just as great as any honest man’s
Good. CA needs to die.
