A study by Tulare County District Attorney staff found half of the inmates released from jail following an emergency COVID-19 order by the California Judicial Council have re-offended.

Had enough yet?

Thank you Gavin Newsom! Newsom needs to be fired! He has caused so much harm to citizens this year. All those who have been harmed by this policy need to file a class action suit against him for his irresponsible policies!

Lock them up. Normal tax payers, are totally fine with flipping the bill, for criminals to stay behind bars. It’s the liberals, who have a need to release criminals into society.

50% is better than normal. Recidivism is usually 75%. Either way it is ridiculous. So now they have spread Covid to their families and neighborhood.

The community is only being exposed to more victimization. When is it enough to hold our decision makers accountable

Recidivism. Early release because of COVID is not the cause. Recidivism has always been an ongoing occurrence. Why? Because folks with prison/jail records don't get hired. Because many have no job skills. Because some lack education. Because some can't cope with living on the 'outside'. People check out AB109, prop 47, prop 57. I support law enforcement. We have a great team where I live. What bothers me are the subtle innuendos projected through PCD.

Half sounds higher than usual. Is it always that high or has the get out of jail free caused numbers to go up?

Only half? How many reoffended and didn’t get caught? Newsom is the new four letter word for 2020, as in “everything is all Newsomed up,” or “go Newsom yourself.”

Come on, they all knew this would happen. There is no reason in California for any criminal to worry about going to jail and staying there. They know it, they laugh, keep doing the crime and our taxpayers money is wasted on a broken down system.

No surprise, let them stay with Pelosi or nephew Gavin….sure they could keep an eye on them.

Do these inmates go through psychological evaluation prior to release? I doubt there is money for that. How many have a home to go home to? A job? Food, medicine? Are they drug addicted or alcoholic? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out ……they will be back. Cold, hungry, sick, mentally deficient, sociopathic? They just do a crime and get back in the "hotel". We are actually REWARDING these folks for bad behavior. In that process we are risking the lives of officers and the general public. The evolution level of a society is measured by how they treat the elderly, the sick, and criminals.
We treat our elderly, sick, and poor very badly. But do a crime and you will have a roof over your head, food in your mouth and free medical care. We have it upside down.

I had enough when people started targeting and blaming law enforcement officers

Placer County has a stealth pilot running housing criminals. Placer Supervisors have shunned their responsibility to have Health and Human Services manage their responsibilities and have contracted out to Gathering Inn and others to "supervise" the homes placed in residential areas. It is not working. Neighbors are complaining of drug use, partying, and catcalls being directed at teens in the neighborhood. One example is a $700,000 home with a pool backing up to open space. I'm sure many of our law enforcement would like to be given such a home to live in. These are real money makers and no notification is given to neighbors. Your homes will all become unsellable when one pops up in your neighborhood. Take benefits away from law enforcement and enable crime throughout our neighborhoods. Time to get these guys out of office.

What did they think would happen? Disgusting people running out state.

Do you think this was planned as part of the chaos and intimidation? Oh , almost forgot-asking for a friend.

Another smooth move by Governor ASSHAT…. Releasing prisoners into a climate of chaos is like throwing gasoline on a fire. There are very few jobs available right now and basically none for a convict… This pushes them back into a life of crime….. I really wonder if you have any common sense under your greasy hair…. You’re too busy trying to set up your run for President. You have completely destroyed California and I hope people see your inability to govern an outhouse much less a Country..

It was done by people who have bought into the narrative that minorities are jailed disproportionately, everyone is basically a good person and deserves a second chance, etc.

But did they get COVID??? Protecting them is more important than protecting law abiding citizens!

I think that was written in stone, that they will not stay on the straight and narrow.

Is anyone surprised?

As Gomer Pyle would say “surprise, surprise, surprise.” In reality, I think most of us figured that is exactly what would happen.

Now there's a surprise a criminal reoffending these Liberals need to get a grip and realise bad people do bad things because they choose to not because of social standing or anything like that they just use that as an excuse .

There's a surprise. Probably higher, just haven't all been caught.

Exactly!! Enough IS enough!! Send them back to prison. Or better yet, Newsom's house!!

To be honest, that’s less than I would have expected

LOCK THEM UP AND KEEP THEM THERE.

This last week the Seattle city council voted to cut even more funding for their police department, right when a social worker was murdered at the building of one of their assignments.

This also comes months after they voted to defund their Seattle Navigation Team, which consisted of police officers, waste management employees AND social workers.

Now a social worker has been murdered. According to reports she was killed by an individual who allegedly had been set-off because they thought their social security benefits were being cut.

This is a tragedy. This was also avoidable. We need to be increasing our partnerships with our social workers, not defunding the programs that take their protections away.

The Seattle citizens should have fought for their police and other LE… but they didn't so now they will see what it is like minimal or no protection…

Such a devastating situation all the way around..when you defund the people that are protecting your city..this will be the new norm, deadly game of roulette…Protect and support the Blue!

I'm sorry, are these folks surprised at what has happened to their city? What the hell did they think would happen when they defunded their police??! I have no sympathy for the mayor or city council members, this tragedy falls in their lap. I feel for the citizens who will suffer the consequences. My prayers go out to the family of this social worker. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ™

I don't live in Seattle I think about there lives there jobs this small percentage thst is destroying Seattle are being protected by bad leadership. It isnt easy to move, find a new job, leave your family. This is just going to be the beginning this is the new norm. The people voted there for their leadership and the people don't know how to get them out

Changes need to start from the top. Whom ever is the top dog needs to step in and take charge of this critical issue Seattle has instigated. How much more proof is needed to show this is not the answer – defunding????

These big cities are in crisis and they are so naive about the mentally ill and addicted. This innocent social worker and family need our prayers. This country needs a new set of laws to treat these people not laws and DA's that enable sick people to live on the streets.

I don't feel bad for anyone in Seattle. They get what they deserve or they could move. Law enforcement needs to resign and move.

We actually had a friend who watched CNN tell us, ‘defund the police’ will never happen- after it had already happened in Seattle, New York, Austin, Portland, Milwaukee…

This is heartbreaking on many levels, but most especially for that social worker's family. I say defund Seattle politicians, as they no longer have the best interest of their law abiding citizens in mind. Vote their asses out of office, before they do even more damage. Seattle City council needs a serious shakabuku. (A swift, spiritual kick to the head.)

Cities that have defunded their police departments are seeing large increases in violent crime. Well, duh!

The city council should all be arrested for being accessories to murder! Maybe if they feel some repercussions for their actions they will take their heads out of their anal orifices!

Ought to make those who passed this ridiculous law do the job. Suddenly they would appreciate the police. This is just plain stupid and short sighted.

Really!The WHOLE police department should leave .Let the almighty city council run the mess they have made.,!!!To the seattle police men an women.No job is worth what you are going through..Take your families an move.Let the city of Gomorrah(seattle).burn.

Why why why are the people in Seattle letting this lawlessness go on? I don’t understand. The mayor, city council should be held responsible for this avoidable murder. And the residents of Seattle it’s only going to get worse! What is wrong with you? Defund the cops? Are you outta your minds???

Seattle seems to be in it's own little world, who cares let people get murdered we must cut back on the Police… I'm not going there…..

I bet Seattle Police Officers are assigned to city council meetings. They should stop going there.

I think the city council needs to endure civil litigation for endangering public servants!

They need their heads examined … it's sad to see the citizens of these cities don't stand up and say enough is enough. You can't tell me they all support this stupidity.

How this agenda for their city council plays out will be interesting. To me it seems the council is working on a short term plan with no thought of long term goals. I think they are alienating their LEO Dept and I hope they don’t lose them before the get everything aligned.

Send in the social workers they said.. .. city's council should step down and be charged with Accessory!

Such a tragic situation, of which could have been avoided. ๐Ÿ˜ข

Isn't that what they wanted??? Sending social workers out instead of cops???

She was actually the 2nd Social Worker murdered recently in Seattle

Minneapolis did this homicide is at 89% guess that defunding isn't a good idea. But we knew that.

Can't they be ousted? Surely the public can do something about this.

Fernando De Jesus Lopez-Garcia, an illegal immigrant and felon, killed two people Sunday in San Jose. Lopez-Garcia stabbed five people at a church being used to feed and shelter homeless people. Two of the victims, a man and a women, died from the attack.

Lopez-Garcia has an extensive criminal history that includes domestic violence, disturbing the peace, giving false information to police, resisting arrest, and assault with a deadly weapon.

Due to California being a โ€œSanctuary Stateโ€, ICE was denied a request to take custody of Lopez-Garcia after he was released from jail in Santa Clara County for a domestic assault charge earlier this year.

California Senate Bill 54, signed into law by former Governor Jerry Brown in 2017, prevented five victims from being safe from the threat this dangerous criminal posed. Now two innocent people are dead.

Lopez-Garcia faces two counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder, battery on a spouse or cohabitant and violation of a protective order. He was on on probation out of San Joaquin County for domestic violence and had an active warrant in Santa Clara County for failing to comply with the conditions of release at the time of the stabbing for failure to appear in court.

SB54 has proven very dangerous in regards to protecting the public and establishing rule of law. It is titled the โ€œCalifornia Values Act.โ€

This is a continuing saga of decent and caring people paying the price so the state can protect criminals. Extremely corrosive to the state. Prayers go out to families who lost loved ones.

The families should sue the state. Absolutely sickening and absurd

And you wonder why decent, hard working, law abiding people are fleeing California by the masses! NEWSOME is a joke and he doesn’t give two flips about California! California is just a stepping stone on his ladder of his agenda! He will cripple Calif and then move on, never looking back!

What a terrible act of violence. Sanctuary areas are an excuse for the dregs of the earth to live in any way they want to, knowing they are "safe". The city of Carlisle, UK, has deemed itself a "safe sanctuary" now, this will be us soon.

Democrats make it possible, had my house broken in by an illegal when I lived in San Jose, the officer that came to my house told me that the POS dems, reduced the burglary unit in the department down to one officer!

Citizens are leaving California by the droves while the evil is welcomed and taking a foothold. Makes sense.

Decriminalization of certain laws, sanctuary state policies, zero bail release and now Newsom’s piss-poor excuse of the COVID threat to release violent felons from prison have turned this state into a haven for scum who have no fear because there are no consequences.

Get ready for more of this! California is the perfect place for criminals! Maybe we can pay him unemployment benefits while he is being taken care of in jail.

Sanctuary cities and states should be outlawed. I hope the families of the victims sue the hell out of this pathetic state. We need to elect hardass politicians who will put law and order back where it belongs! ๐Ÿคฌ

How many more law enforcement officers do we have to loose by laws passed to protect the bad guys and put them back on the streets?? The lawmakers who passed the bill need to be tried for these officers killings. ๐Ÿ‘ฎ‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Why do we put up with illegals in this country? If they can't go through the same process our ancestors did they should be deported. This is why we have a border wall. Those of us living in the southern border states rejoice at seeing that wall. Sanctuary cities shouldn't be allowed because that encourages illegals to sneak in. We're fed up with it. God Bless our LEs that have to deal with it. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Placer County Deputies thank you for reporting the truth! So much of the public is oblivious to what is going on. There is zero reason to allow criminal aliens to stay in this state, protected. The taxpayers, citizens, and legal immigrants deserve better than to be sitting victims when these crimes could be prevented.

Too bad the good and decent people in any state, can’t sue the state for wrongful death!
Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims and their families

Prayers to the families and RIP to the victims. It's sad that we live in a world where the criminals seem to have more rights than the everyday working person; especially in California where the criminals are able to run free to commit their crimes get a slap on the wrist and set free, there isn't any consequences for their crimes. Sanctuary cities need to be eliminated and Law and Order needs to be restored as our President has been working so hard to do but have hit road blocks because of the inept Govenors like Neuscum. Gov Newscum needs to go as he himself is guilty of crimes against the people of the State of California. If we get rid of these evil criminial politicians our states can get back to running more efficiently.

That is so sad for those innocent people just going to church. I agree, the families should sue the state. How dare they allow these dangerous people in our country. Gavin Newsom and other Dem governors are responsible!!!๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ

Another example to recall Newsom and vote out any legislator that backed SB54!

We I feel don’t need more police what we need is mental health workers to work alongside them to help get this type of people off the streets my prayers out for the family

People need to learn how to vote before next time this might be their family members affected by their crazy voting. ( commence hateful comments from hateful people -aka bots!)

I just don’t understand why Californians keep voting for people who make the policies that let this awful incident happen.

Our voting system is rigged, we don't want Newsom! There can't be that many stupid people voting for Newsom.

Beyond belief!!! Fuck Jerry Brown & Gavin NewSCUM for supporting and allowing this type of behavior!!!!!! Brown and NewSCUM are the cause of acts like this!!!! They should be in jail!

Heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the 2 who lost their lives.

Vote out all of these liberal idiots! Take back our state, get rid of our sanctuary state, let law enforcement do their job the way it should be done. Thank you to all law enforcement who go out and try to protect and serve even with their hands tied! We back the blue ๐Ÿ’™

What most uninformed voters don’t realize is that those pretty titles on initiatives are designed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy are actually deceptive laws that endanger you. Please read past the title folks. This is a perfect example! Better yet, look to see who is endorsing it and who is opposes it if law-enforcement isn’t supporting it, it probably is something that will present a greater danger to you.

Time to charge Newsome.Brown and any Members of the State Senate who voted this law in as accessories to murder. Family members should hit them with at least negligence and a civil suit. It's time these power-hungry fools paid for their stupidity.
