When the courts ruled that California had too many criminals locked up and that non-violent offenders needed to be released, Kamala Harris was reportedly trying to hang onto them for dear life because they could be used to fight forest fires for two dollars a day.
This seems like utilizing slave labor may run in Harris’ genes. The Gateway Pundit says that some things never change, noting that Harris’ ancestors also owned slaves.

Kamala Harris says that the mass incarceration of Blacks is completely wrong but she didn’t mention the fact that the bill that led to mass incarceration was forced through the Senate by Joe Biden, her running mate. Now, that’s what I call an inconvenient truth.
In 2011, the courts ruled that California’s prisons were so overcrowded that the conditions violated the cruel and unusual punishment in the US constitution.
But Harris and her prosecutors argued that if they released the prisoners they would lose the cheap labor they used in fighting forest fires and other duties such as cleaning the parks and streets.
In 2011, the Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Plata that it was cruel and unusual punishment for prisons to be so overcrowded. Harris violated that ruling for what amounted to slave labor.
Is cheap labor really a valid reason for ignoring the Supreme Court? And where would you find that exemption in the constitution?
By 2014, there was a class action suit filed to force California to forget the cheap labor and release the prisoners as the high court demanded. Harris’ office said:
“Extending 2-for-1 credits to all minimum custody inmates at this time would severely impact fire camp participation—a dangerous outcome while California is in the middle of a difficult fire season and severe drought.”
According to VICE — Back when she was San Francisco D.A., U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, now a presidential contender and a self-described “progressive prosecutor,” cost the city of San Francisco millions of dollars and cost Jamal Trulove more than six years of his life. Harris allowed the people working under her to pursue a murder charge against Trulove that was ultimately overturned by an appeals court. Harris has yet to account for this incident.
