I thought once the jail term was over, the, ah, jail term was over.

Nothing like putting them in position to need to commit crimes to eat to help protect society.

They already have a lot of trouble finding a job since “felon” looks bad on your resum. Heaven forbid they should be able to eat for a while during their transition to normal life.
I recently heard about a program at San Quentin (The Last Mile) to teach entrepreneurship to prisoners, the idea being that if no one else will hire you, maybe you can start your own business. Obviously not for everyone, but it seems like a good idea to help folks coming out of prison to not return to crime.
