A California judge has ruled stealing a car may now just result in a ticket.
Michele Hanisee, President of the Association of Los Angeles Deputy District Attorneys, says that’s also true with any big ticket item thanks to Prop 47.
“You can walk into Best Buy or Sears or any big package store. Walk out with a big flat screen TV, as long as it’s under $950 and you can do that every day of the week. And every day of the week it’s still going to be a misdemeanor, no matter how many times you do it, and at most you’re just going to get a citation to appear.”
She went on to say that Prop 47 advocates called it the “Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act” when they proposed it, but that it did nothing for neighborhoods except to dramatically increase property crime and make undelivered promises on funding to schools.
Hanisee was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning.
