Once again, the progressive socialist democrats are using Orwellian labels to pander to their core constituency of minorities by excusing and forgiving minority criminal behavior …
The idea that “non-violent” offenders should be given “special” treatment in order to reduce the prison population is ludicrous.
Especially if it is your property that is stolen or damaged by a “non-violent” criminal or your child dies from an overdose given to them by a “non-violent” criminal. And, since progressive socialist democrat prosecutors are more likely than not to allow the perpetrator’s lawyer to plea bargain away more serious charges like those that are related to gun-related criminal activity in order to ensure a conviction and positive conviction statistics.
Here is how California defines non-violent or non-serious crimes …
Prison realignment: New Calif. law broadly defines "low-level" offenses
In an effort to reduce inmate crowding and save the state's money, Gov. Jerry Brown and supporters have said California's new sentencing law that took effect this week will send only those convicted of nonviolent or non-serious crimes to county jails instead of state prison.
However, a review by The Associated Press has revealed that crimes that qualify for local sentences include at least two dozen offenses that can be considered serious or violent.
Among them: Involuntary manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, killing or injuring a police officer while resisting arrest, participating in a lynching, possession of weapons of mass destruction, possessing explosives, threatening a witness or juror, and using arson or explosives to terrorize a health facility or church. Assault, battery, statutory rape and sexual exploitation by doctors or psychotherapists are also covered by the prison realignment law and carry sentences that will be served in a county jail instead of state prison.
"These crimes include a variety of offenses that would strike many civilians as far from trivial," Public Policy Institute of California researcher Dean Misczynski wrote in a recent analysis of the new law.
Judges also have the discretion to impose "hybrid" or "split sentences" in which offenders serve part of their sentence in county jail and the rest on what is being called "mandatory supervision," overseen by probation officers.<Source>
Of what use is this vehicle, except for an expensive solution to traffic enforcement transport or LAPD executives who want to prove they are environmentally conscious. No mention of the cost nor the subsidies required to purchase this clown car.
Bottom line …
There is little or no doubt in my mind that our criminal justice system is big business. Especially for the attorneys who directly benefit from criminal activities; not to mention the unionized employees who are gaming the justice system.
Corruption is corruption. It is about time that we build more prisons, not coddle violent criminals whose last crime may have been non-serious or non-violent. It is about time that we sanction progressive socialist democrats who appear to have more sympathy and compassion for criminals that commit crimes than they do the victims; proclaiming criminals are victims of the system.
The race-baiters and poverty pimps point to poor economic conditions and low employment as the proximate root causes of crime. Overlooking the fact that there was not a widespread crime wave during the Great Depression. But, then again, families were still intact – not broken apart by a government mandate that welfare mothers could not receive assistance when there was a man in the house. When civics, citizenship, and character were still taught to students rather than how to roll on a condom, engage in anal sex, or experiment with your gender and sexual choices.
It is time for the pendulum to swing back – from progressive socialist democrat governed world to a conservative governed world.
And, at this point in time, I cannot see any 2016 candidate other than Ted Cruz that can lead the fight.
We are so screwed.
