Inmate Transfers Out of State?

Just when I was beginning to like Arnie again, I see news that he has signed an order transferring 5,000 inmates to other state prison systems. Likely transfer states are Mississippi, Arizona and Oklahoma, where private prisons flourish. While it is doubtless true that California's prisons are horribly overcrowded, shipping prisoners to private prisons far from their homes and loved ones hardly seems a humane solution. Prisoners can appeal the transfers, although the grounds are not clear.

I guess at heart Arnie will always be the Terminator, ruthless, cold, inhuman.
