While violent crime across the country continues to decline, like it has for decades, it has actually risen in California, and not by a small margin. According to the FBI, California saw a 12% rise in violent crime.
Hmmm, let me see, what could possibly be the cause of this?
Could it be Prop 47?
Could it be AB 109?
The liberals in charge wrote those laws, laws that claimed to have the goal of making society safer, but instead released thousands of prison inmates, and decriminalized all sorts of crimes, making it impossible for the cops to lock up criminals. Could it be those liberal lawmakers either 1) don’t have a damn clue what they are doing or 2) know exactly what they are doing and are doing it to try and push more, stricter gun control laws?
I’ll tell you what though, it sure as hell was not the cops. No current chief LEO anywhere in the state supported either of those laws, and many cops across the state spoke out, loudly, in opposition of them both, myself included. What do you know; the cops might actually know a thing or two about reducing crime…
Not to say I told you so, but HOLY CRAP, I TOLD YOU SO!!!!!!
