California: Thieves Go Wild – Take Advantage Of State Law That Protects Shoplifters

Once again, in the Land of Fruits and Nuts, the criminals have outsmarted the lawmakers.
In 2014 California passed Proposition 47, which made theft of property valued at less than $950 a misdemeanor offense.
The previous threshold was $450.

Guess how that is working out?

    Speaking of land of fruits and nuts, it’s 100% true. Cali also produces 100% of Almonds, Walnuts, & Pistachios that we consume.

    ‘Ain’t only California though. True the recent legislation coming from Sickramento is making shoplifting more tempting, but the “youths” had already come to know that if they could make it to the exit, they were home free. Most of the time the store employees don’t even try to catch them before they GET to the exits. This is a nationwide crisis.

    “No shit, Sherlock!” doesn’t even begin to describe the ever-expanding list of unintended intended consequences of Neo-Communist laws and policies.

      As Comrade Lenin said – “the worse, the better”. They’ve stuck with that strategy, and it seems to be working for them.

    As much as Cali hates guns, if you steal a handgun valued under $1,000.00 it’s a misdemeanor.

  5. Ken, let us once again compliment you on the timing of your Calif-escape.

    BTW, you can’t shoot a thief over a misdemeanor, even if he’s making off with your weeks wages.

    Lawrence Auster >> Law of Majority – Minority Relations in a Liberal Society

    The worse any designated minority or Alien group behaves in a Liberal society, the bigger becomes the Lies of Political Correctness in covering up for that group.

    The more egregiously any non-White or non-Western group behaves, the more evil whites are made to appear for noticing and drawing rational conclusions about that groups pathology

    The First Law and its corollary are intrinsic to Liberalism Once the Equality of all human groups is accepted as a given, any facts that prove a minority or foreign group worse than the majority group must be either covered up, or blamed on the Majority

    In CA if you can prove entry with intent to commit theft, it’s no longer a simple theft and becomes burglary.
