The façade of California’s soft-on-crime approach leading to safer communities is starting to crack before our eyes. At its most fundamental level, government’s role is to protect public safety but unfortunately, our state seems to be forgetting this core function.
Since Gov. Brown took office, a series of criminal justice “reforms” ranging from Assembly Bill 109 to Proposition 47 to Proposition 57 have chipped away at state laws that used to protect the public. We have now reached a point where sex offenders are considered “non-violent” and will likely be considered for early release from their lengthy criminal sentences. How did California, which once passed one of the nation’s toughest laws in Three Strikes, end up here?
we are a sanctuary city for illegals and hardened criminals.
