California voted to go easy on criminals — this is how crime is doing 3 years later


In 2014 the voters of California went to the polls and approved a proposition that would ease the overpopulation in jails and prisons by loosening law enforcement standards on crime. They were told this would have little effect on crime itself. That’s not what happened.

Three years later, some local law enforcement officials are blaming proposition 47 for a drastic increase in crime in California. According to KTTV-TV, arrests are down 30 percent since the new law, but violent crime is up an incredible 40 percent in Los Angeles.

According to preliminary estimates, the Inland Empire region in California rose from ranking 9th in the nation in vehicle thefts to 5th (per 100,000 population) in just one year — from 2015 to 2016.
