Lighter Sentences = More Crime?

  • California‚Äôs Proposition 47 of 2014, The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act, which changed some drug and property crimes from felonies to misdemeanors, has coincided with a rise in crime in parts of the state.

    Conservative columnist Debra Saunders, who is the lone conservative columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle, argues in her latest syndicated column that the release of roughly 3,700 inmates has decreased public safety.
The statistical evidence is pretty damning - in San Francisco:
  • car theft has risen 47% from the same period in 2014;
  • robberies have increased 23%; and
  • aggravated assaults have risen 2%.
And in Los Angeles:
  • the city saw a 12.7% increase in overall crime;
  • violent offenses climbed 20.6%; and
  • property crime increased 11%.
If only someone was around who could have predicted this! But we suppose they have someone there, too, who says loudly and weekly, "Crime is down!" despite all the evidence to the contrary.

This is the inverse Fox Butterfield Effect. Remember the idiot from the NY Times?

Catch and release, it is the environmentally correct crime fighting technique.

They do the same stuff in Chicago. Burglaries are classified as Criminal Damage to Property. Robberies are turned into thefts... All to keep numbers down. A house in 016 where only a safe was taken was classified as a theft from building, not a burglary.

And Toni Preckwinkle, the leader of the "let everyone out of jail" crowd, is now trying to put her handpicked person in place to replace Anita Alvarez who she says is too tough on crime. Between shaky finances of this city and what could happen if someone like Preckwinkle got her claws into the State's Attorney's Office, Chicago is heading for Detroit status and the tax base will move out of the city in the blink of an eye. That's some scary stuff.

The next thing any good commie would do is to create a domestic surveillance department like the good ol' KGB. Gotta do something, huh?

There's a reason liberals are called 'Libtards'. I've known a lot of liberals, they're pretty much good people. But damn are they stupid when it comes to common sense things.

They believe in the good in people, but the problem is that criminals by their very definition are sorely lacking in that 'goodness'.

So when you let a criminal out of jail early, a liberal says "Well, I'm sure they got the message. They'll turn themselves around now that they got the message."

Conservative says "BULLSHIT!"

Criminal says "wooooooo hooooooo! PARTAY TIME YA'LL!!! Oh wait, no money, gotz to get to work... hahahahaha" - and they do what they know how to do - which is rob, steal, attack, beat, maim, murder, etc...

Liberals can't get past the 'good in people' bit to understand basic criminal nature.

To fix this issue we need:

* Liberals out of the legislatures all over

* Liberals out of the White House

* Cops to be cops again - welcome to the Wood Shampoo pal!

* Criminals to go to jail/prison and stay there for a long time - lock those fuckers up - no yard, no working out, nothing. Sit and read. Make prison hard so they don't want to go there.

It is called "restorative justice therapy (RJT)" and it will work if it is given enough time. RJT is a brilliant theory formulated by our President and is closest advisers and approved by the Dept. of Justice. Just be patient, things will work out in the end.
