That's just the tip of the iceberg. Add cops, lawyers, judges, prison construction. Then banks that make loans, restaurants, etc. The velocity of money. Crime is big business, bigger than poverty.

Huge numbers of violent offenders are being turned loose, or not even being jailed, because it is too expensive to keep off the streets.. I can here them now- “Sorry, we can’t afford to keep violent offenders in jail, but don’t worry, just keep your doors lock and stay off the streets at night". Sleep well!

When we are spending between $40k and $200k a prisoner something has got to give. That's more than some of our good working citizens trying to raise a family are making. That's 4 times more than what a lot of school districts are spending on students.
Cut costs for those that are supposed to be there to "pay" for a crime against us.
Give Sheriff Joe Arpaio a call let them live in tents, pink underwear, cheap meals no coffee, soda or other creature comforts. Make those that are getting out know they don't want to come back and those that are going nowhere know this is punishment.
Governor are you listening?
