California prison psychiatrist and public employee made over $800K in 2010

Can’t say I’m surprised.   But still, wow:

The chief psychiatrist for California’s overcrowded prison system was paid $838,706 in 2010, more than any other state employee that year, payroll figures released today show.

The doctor, whose name wasn’t released, had a salary range of $261,408 to $308,640, according to data released today by California Controller John Chiang. The total compensation was raised by bonuses or payout of unused vacation time, according to the controller’s office.

If you don’t see anything wrong with this, then you’re part of the problem.  Plain and simple.   If the people of  California continue to elect nanny-state supporting, overspending politicians as their representatives to state government, then quite frankly, good riddance.  Let it break off the continent and sink into the Pacific.

Meanwhile, this insanity.

Seen in south Jersey:

Clearly not indicative of the rest of the state to be sure.  But we never would have seen this in the Hope ‘N Change days of 2008.
