‘Mass release’ of state prisoners not a given if amendment fails

From the article: “When Alabama voters go the polls Sept. 18, they’ll face a choice — shift $437 million from a state trust fund to patch the state budget, or brace for a “mass release” of state prison inmates.”

The wording apparently reads that the amendment is “to provide adequate funding for the State General Fund budget, to prevent the mass release of prisoners from Alabama prisons, and to protect critical health services to Alabama children, elderly and mothers.”

Well, Alabama voters, you have two choices: (1) pass this amendment or (2) prepare for total chaos and martial law, lock your doors and hide your children, as the prisoners run amok across the land.

No pressure.  Take your time.
