from jail, as long as the court feels they don't pose a serious public safety risk. criminals who have committed violent crimes would not be affected by this prop. they stay where they are no matter what. a few years ago the u.s. supreme court said california's prisons are way overcrowd and supporters believe that this prop will also help free up space in prisons. if passed, money saved from keeping some of the nonviolent criminals out of jail will be redirected to k-12 education, victim services, and victim health and rehabilitation centers. but some believe releasing them earlier than expected is a bad idea because they might still pose a risk to the public and commit more crimes and just end up back in jail after hurting more people. voting yes means you support reducing penalties and sentencing for nonviolent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors. voting no means you do not support reducing nonviolent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors. ♪
