To ease overcrowding in L.A. jails, send inmates to 'Guantanamoon' [Ted Rall cartoon]

February 8, 2012 |  6:43 am

What are we to do about overcrowding in our jails? State Sen. Tony Strickland (R-Moorpark) has an idea. He recently drafted SB 983, which would allow counties to export prisoners to other states. Strickland's heart may be in the right place, but cartoonist Ted Rall couldn't help but poke fun at the proposal. (Newt Gingrich is totally going to be jealous that he didn't come up with the concept of 'Guantanamoon' first.)
