California's Lapse in Logic

July 3, 2008

In logic, if “A” is true and “B” is true, then we can conclude that “C” must also be true.

“A” is: “Gangs kill each other.”

“B” is: “If gang members are arrested, they can be counted on to continue to kill each other if placed in the same cell.”

Therefore, “C” is: They should not be placed in the same cell. Right? Not in California. In another display of political correctness and plain stupidity, California is about to desegregate its prison cells. The state will put blacks, whites and Hispanics together in the same cell.

Many are predicting this will lead to more killings in prison. Do ya think?

What bean counter came up with this bozo idea? Would they put a Klansman with a black or Jew? In California, they might, but this is completely crazy. Maybe that’s why some people call California the land of fruits and nuts. And you don’t need logic to figure that out.
