I don't know what is happening to our society......you do the crime...you do the time, not so. Our judicial system needs to be looked at.....

Unfortunately, we are running out of places to put criminals. Some judges believe that minor crimes can be dealt with administratively rather than incarceration.

So, if our population won't act right (stop committing crimes) and our gov won't close the borders, are we prepared to pay for a huge expansion to our prison infrastructure?

The lunatics are running the asylum in Baltimore! Take a good look at the pictures of the people running this poor excuse of a city.

Get Trump to build a huge SuperMax with super high walls in one of our barren deserts... Close all other prisons down and shove them all in there.
Actually, maybe even better. Forget the movie with Arnold and Stallon. Super prison built in a huge freighter and anchored at sea...
One of these will solve the problems hopefully.

Since Mexico is paying for the trillion $ wall, will Canada pay for the Super Prison?

Well, here's the way I see the problem:

Suppose you are caught driving over the speed limit, or drifting through a red light, and a police officer issues you a ticket. You can either remit the fine, or go to court and fight it. Suppose you do neither. You don't pay the ticket, and you don't appear in court. In virtually every jurisdiction in the United States, the judge will issue a "Bench Warrant" for your arrest. The police probably will not come looking for you, but if you are ever stopped for another traffic offense, the officer will check for "Wants and Warrants" on you. He/she will be told of the open Warrant, and will arrest you and take you to jail, where you will remain until you can post bail.

What's wrong with that system? It is color blind. It applies to everybody. Why do members of some races or ethnicities believe that it shouldn't apply to them? Should only white people have to pay their traffic tickets? What makes Ferguson, MO so special that some folks are able to break the law with impunity?

Isn't a powerful message being sent here? NEVER PAY A TRAFFIC TICKET OR APPEAR IN COURT BECAUSE IF YOU WAIT LONG ENOUGH SOME EMPTY-HEADED ULTRA-LIBERAL JUDGE WILL WITHDRAW ALL ARREST WARRANTS!!

This is a giant step towards total anarchy.

The judge cleared the warrants, not the court cases. People are still expected to show up in court, and new warrants allegedly issued for those who fail to show up again. Allegedly.

MAYBE you'll get arrested on the warrant - depends if you're stopped in the pickup radius, which for misdemeanor warrants is generally only the county of issue and adjoining counties, AND, if outside the issuing agency, that agency has an officer available to come get the offender. Otherwise, you get advised to turn yourself in.

Would anybody be surprised to learn that the judge in Ferguson, MO who withdrew all arrest warrants issued before 2015 was an African-American? Clean slate: New Ferguson judge voids 10,000 arrest warrants ? RT USA
