I’m surprised the usually incompetent Atascadero Police Dept. is even looking into these cases. I once witnessed a man walk into Von’s in Atascadero pick up a case of beer, and walk out. When I notified an employee, they said it happened everyday, and that same man had done that many times, and that the Atascadero Police don’t even respond. Because of this crazy $950.00 no consequences law, it is literally not against the law to steal. Our society is absolutely nuts!

No great loss if he was stealing BudLight.

They know there are no consequences if the theft is under $950. Who makes up these ridiculously stupid laws???

You get what you vote for. Part of it, voters voted for that. Part of it is who is elected.
