The cost they are trying to save is that of paying for his/her gender change surgery! http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2015/...sed-on-parole/ This is what the liberal, left leaning government in California sees as a cost savings event. They paroled this person seeking a sex change operation. BTW - she/he was sentenced for murder, but they say he/she is no longer dangerous! I may be wrong, and I sincerely hope I am; but this person wanted this surgery and wanted the state to pay for it, and because of the cost for the surgery being prohibative to the recently released parole, I see he/she committing another crime to return to prison in order to get the surgery. Let's just hope he/she doesn't murder again to get there! So sad, what California is doing with the overcrowded prison system! So what do you think of this?
