California’s Prop 47 leads to rise in shoplifting, thefts, criminal activity across state
Leave it to the Golden State to win yet another stupid contest!!
Brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from felony to misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more “serious” crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics.
Nothing like giving a criminal the GREEN LIGHT to run rampant. So another words; Jack & Jill the Jackers can go around unimpeded, all day long, stealing anything they can get there hands on or shove up their nose that is worth less than 950.00$ without worrying about getting nailed by the Fuz. Wow what a great state to live in. No wonder the state is over populated with criminals.
I love stupid questions. I wonder if that is 950.00$ per day – per item per -per incident or per what?? I am, a little confused.
