The California Supreme Court ruled that the state's prisons are so overcrowded that they violate the Bill of Rights' ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
You could paint one of these overcrowded prisons grey and call it a submarine and the Navy would find a way to fit at least ten times as many people in them. The difference would be that, instead of convicted criminals, the occupants would all be volunteers, willingly risking their lives to preserve our way of life.
Our World War II veterans spent months rocking around in these tin cans in bunks so tight that a sardine would be uncomfortable. Then got to fight the Germans or Japanese.
These inmates do not have my sympathies.
