    A press conference was held today at the San Luis Obispo Sheriffs Dept by SLO area law enforcement leaders to oppose Proposition 57, an upcoming item on our November 8 ballot.

    The "Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act" as it's called by creators, will allow for early release/parole of "non violent" offenders. Make no mistake about it, that is a lie. Proposition 57 overturns four decades of criminal justice laws that have lowered crime rates in California. The Proposition allows tens of thousands of violent, dangerous and career criminals to be released early, on the heels of Prop 47 and AB109 which released so many into our neighborhoods already.

    Here is a partial list of what is considered "non-violent" offenses:

    •RAPE by intoxication or of an unconscious person.
    •ASSAULT with a deadly weapon
    •HUMAN TRAFFICKING involving a SEX ACT with a MINOR
    •Drive-by SHOOTING
    •HOSTAGE taking
    •Attempting to explode a BOMB at a school or hospital
    •LEWD ACTS with a 14 year old.
    The list goes on and on. Attached is a video of the complete press conference...

    If you live in California, please watch the video and tell your friends and neighbors about this, like their life could depend on it.

      About 13℅ imprisonments are violence criminal's, these people should be the very last to be released from a cell anywhere.

      Locking people up in a cage over Marijuana, is a crime against nature, allow them out. They will soon enough change the laws to make it legal in most places I'm the world. Reefer madness nut cases are dying out.

        Only 13%?  .... But, if they get Proposition 57 passed, some violent criminals get freed to repeat.

        "Reefer madness nut cases are dying out"  ---   Oh, dear! 

        Actually, I know of someone who has been busted three times (not in CA) for possession of weed within the past 5 or 6 years, once with a large amount with the intent to sell.  He has not gone to prison.

      You seem to be looking at the world through the lens of the internet, and it's freaking you out.

      Nearly every thread I've seen you post has some kind of fearful message in it. About politics, the law, immigrants, Muslims, and now rapists, human traffickers, arsonists. Do you look at good news stories to balance out the negativity? If not, here's a story about a glow-in-the-dark cycle path in Poland (it looks really good!). I dunno, might make you feel a bit better.
