California Dem Betrays Party Over Crime Crisis

California Democrat lawmaker, Rudy Salas, turned on his own party when he proposed reversing the state’s Proposition 47 due to an increase in crime. Background: In 2014, California voted to make changes to the state’s Proposition 47. The rule reduced shoplifting charges for the amount of $950 and less, turning the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor. For months, the Golden State has seen a massive spike in shoplifting and smash-and-grab robberies. The spike has been drastic enough to drive many businesses to close their brick-and-mortar stores. What Happened: Salas introduced a bill that would revert Prop 47 to its original form. If passed, crimes over $400 would be charged as a felony. What Comes Next: The bill will need to pass the Legislature and receive a majority vote from California voters on a ballot measure before becoming law. Governor Newsom previously supported Prop 47 when he was lieutenant gov. and again last month. What Republicans Say: Many California Republicans support reversing Prop 47. “It was maybe an experiment. It failed. It’s time to change things,” Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims “We have seen the unintended consequences of Prop 47’s weakening of our theft laws and I believe California voters are ready to make their voices heard on this issue again,” Salas said. What Democrats Say: Democrats say that existing rules should be enough to punish criminals and contain the issue of increased crime affecting the state.

They do not care about their constituents. It is all about them, power and control.

Another democrat fxxx up, the democrat Chicago teachers union strike.When the Chicago policemen wanted had more safety Mayor lightheaded, fired them yet the Chicago teachers “both receives and gets tons of money” from the democrats, why are they not fired? Their contract does not allow strikes, Yet again, Mayor lightheaded does nothing. When are the tax payors, people of Chicago going to step forward, and take back control of their city from democrats, who allow murder, crimes, riots, reduce police safety, and now the teachers union to run all over the tax payor who pays their salary. Say it again just another Democrat fxxx up. Democrats can’t govern, are you not tired of being told to go fxxx yourself from the democrats???

I totally agree with you!! But I can tell you why Governor Lightbrain doesn’t buck the Teachers Unions…because those Liberal teachers are BRAINWASHING the Chicago children into liking Socialism — every Democrat’s Wet Dream!!

Isn’t it so sad how BLATANTLY STUPID YET EVIL LIGHTBRAIN AND THE REST OF THE DEMOCRATS ARE IN THIS COUNTRY??? They NEVER, for one second, thought about the people they represent, but always made judgments that they themselves would benefit from!

They are an evil stupid people, but the people who just sit and complain but do nothing about the dem’s actions ARE EVEN STUPIDER THAN THE DEMS! It’s their lives the Dems are screwing with yet they refuse to get back in their faces and push them on down??

HOUSTON, we have a situation and no one is BRAVE ENOUGH, COURAGEOUS ENOUGH, nor SMART ENOUGH TO FIX THIS RIDICULOUS MESS WE LIVE IN!

Newsome went on a one way holiday last year. Youa re seeing a body double, same with Pelosi, and Biden. All actors taking their places with DNA of the original to get the voice and behavior? (I think Thats how it works) I saw a funny post of the actor playing Biden coming out of the studio , and all the people outside booing him and saying you are just acting like Biden. He threw his hands up turned, then walked away alone

“ploiticians that have destroyed their state”

Can’t tell if you mean exploiticians, or ploticians. Either one is accurate.
