"Many prisoners released early may not wind up being re-incarcerated, according to Brown. The law requires the state to give day-for-day credit in most cases to a prisoner who has been released early and hasnâ(TM)t been found to break any laws since, he said."

Find me anyone who hasn't broken any laws in a given day, week, or month! As many respectable sources point out, you break the law every day without even knowing it: e.g. http://www.washingtonsblog.com... If you don't feel like reading, watch here from 5:18 to 6:18, or even further until to 7:18 for some fun examples. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

I would imagine that anyone making jokes about this has no children. To anyone with kids, the thought of something like this happening is simply gut-wrenching. But since relations with the opposite sex are required for procreation, I guess the tasteless jokes and, what's worse, modding up of such, is to be expected here.

WOW, amazing. Just checked the site. Just....amazing. Since 2004, about 2 million probes taken. Based on DNA test, about 28000 were convicted. Translated, about 1% positive hit. Money collected for this purpose: 280 million dollars. No comment....

So about $10K per conviction. Not a bad rate.
