The Concerning Trend of Decriminalizing Crime


What happens when our judicial system begins to minimize criminal acts, while at the same time cutting the budgets for law enforcement?


Over the past several months, we have noticed a very concerning trend in California to minimize incarceration time, de-fund law enforcement budgets and allowing sex offenders currently in prison to be considered for early release.


In each and every case, the decision made by courts and politicians references the statement "The people have spoken" referring to the results of recent elections. While there is certainly an element of truth to that statement, in reality most voters had no understanding of the end results of these measures when they voted on them.


It is my belief that few people understood the cumulative impact on the safety of our community and especially women and children who have been the victims of these sex offenders.
