    Ridiculous and horrifying. What I love about this article is how it focuses on the effects of the law: forcing a human to “walk on eggshells” even after they’re released. Truly chilling

    According to this article, 14,000 people have been convicted for petty crimes and even though California made a huge step with the passing of Prop 47, that’s estimated to only release around 10,000 people from prison.
