Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims is right, and Gov. Jerry Brown is not.
Here is a fact that you won’t see discussed too often by the tyrants that are running this state. In 2015, total violent crime rates increased by 10 percent, property crime rates increased by 8 percent, and auto thefts increased by 12 percent over the previous year.
These numbers can be found in the California State Report on Crime in California, on Table 2. These rates seem to correspond to the jail dumping that Jerry has engaged in since 2013.
At the same time, the Democrats are dumping more criminals back on to the streets, protecting criminal illegal immigrants from deportation, hiring more private security for themselves at your expense, and trying to pass more laws that will empty the jails. They are also passing laws to make it harder for you to defend yourselves.
Never miss a local story.
The Democratic Party in California has become a bigoted organization which seems to despise middle-class families, the most common victims of crime. What is really sad is that over 60 percent of the voters of this state are going to keep voting for people who don’t seem to give a damn about their safety and well-being.
