With today’s budget problems, why can’t we cut costs that are not necessary?

Should someone who steals a $30.00 pair of jeans, cost the taxpayer 10,000 dollars or should it cost the $5.00 per day Electronic Home Detention costs or the $60+ dollars a day, per IDOC’s study, http://www.ilga.gov/commission/cgfa2006/upload/PeoriaTestimony.pdf, and invest the difference in the community?
