You do need two prior non "petty" felonies to get in this situation.

Exactly. People who get "strike three" are not innocents.

Vote yes on Proposition 36.

re: #3 Gus

Vote yes on Proposition 36.

Agreed, but the articles proposed "going further" I do not agree with. Snatching a purse ought to be a 'strike', and if someone goes to prison for life for having done that trice I would think that just.

If I understand correctly, three strikes applies whether it was three separate occasions, or just three laws broken at the same time. Either way, I'm not in favor of locking up non-violent offenders effectively for life. Especially when considering that our prison population has proportionally surpassed China's already.

To lawmakers in favor of three strike laws: if a baseball metaphor (or any other sports metaphor for that matter) is the best idea you've got for making a law, then stfu and give serious consideration to resigning in order to go back to school.
