If this guy isn’t in jail with those three charges, including a felony, who has to stay in jail? The jailer must be left with murderers and rapists. Oh yea, those guys are getting out too. Thanks AB109, prop 47.


Before too long we not need police at all. All crime I’ll be legal and there will be no need to arrest anyone.


It’s basically that now Unless you are convicted of a serious, sexual, violent crime (not the case here btw), you will never see the inside of a prison, and the jail will let you out quickly, as seen above. It’s called realignment, prison reform, keep people out of prison and put them back on the streets so we can say we have fewer inmates. It’s a wonder police even stop anyone and take the time to arrest them. It’s a revolving door. But don’t worry – if you can be cited for something that involves a big fine they will be right on it. There’s no money in arresting criminals but lots of money in fines.
