Federal judges order California to free 9,600 inmates

• Los Angeles Times
A trio of federal judges ordered Gov. Jerry Brown to immediately begin freeing state inmates and waived state laws to allow early releases, threatening the governor with contempt if he does not comply.

Citing California's "defiance," "intransigence" and "deliberate failure" to provide inmates with adequate care in its overcrowded lockups, the judges on Thursday said Brown must shed 9,600 inmates —about 8% of the prison population — by the end of the year.

This is not intended to be crude. Some prisoners will breed prisoners. 1 choice would be offer of "castration for release". Perhaps this can help reduce future prisoner numbers.
