Yes it's true! California finally released a brain dead inmate Dan Provencio (the brain dead dude) had been costing the state $1,056-- a day in overtime.
Yes indeed--it initially took TWO CO's to guard the brain dead guy.
Oh yeah...how did he end up brain dead?
Shot in the head with a rubber bullet by a guard.
Gee--you might rightly wonder--how much does California spend guarding comatose and incapacitated people?
Try 30 million bucks a year.
