CALIFORNIA CRIME SURGE
Over the last few years, California has been victim to a completely avoidable crime surge. One disastrous far-left policy after another has become law courtesy of California democrats like Sharon Quirk-Silva, who prioritize pleasing extremist criminal justice reform advocates over protecting their own people. AB 109, Prop. 47, Prop. 57, all of these soft-on-crime laws pushed by democrats have slipped past the voter’s attention for one simple reason…
The democratic party in California is so powerful that they can blatantly lie and violate their constitutional duties with zero consequences.
Prop. 47 and 57 were billed by democrats as much-needed criminal justice reforms so that people we’re spending time in jail for small crimes like marijuana possession.
The truth hidden from Californians on their ballot was that the following crimes were downgraded so they could be considered “nonviolent”.
Rape by intoxication (refers to a circumstance in which the victim was under the influence), Rape of an unconscious person, Human trafficking involving a sex act with minors, Assault with a deadly weapon, Domestic violence involving trauma, Drive-by shooting, Hostage taking, Attempting to explode a bomb at a hospital or school, Supplying a firearm to a gang member, Hate crime causing physical injury, Failing to register as a sex offender, Arson, Discharging a firearm on school grounds, Lewd acts against a child 14 or 15 years old, False imprisonment of an elder through violence.
REPEAL THE GAS TAX
The problem with Sacramento Democrats like Sharon Quirk-Silva, is that their first inclination is to come and ask the people for more money. What happened to the billions in taxes we have already paid to fix our roads?
It was diverted into special pet projects like the High Speed Rail.
As if that were not bad enough, the new Gas Tax does that all over again!
Despite ballooning in cost to 7x the price that voters approved, the Gas Tax and Cap & Trade funds are being diverted to help build this boondoggle pet project.
