Get out of California: Newsom’s budget will defund fighting crime

5/5 - (8 votes)

We all know about the crime in California. Get ready for things to get worse as it’s no doubt going to happen. From the Daily Mail:

California’s Dem. Gov Gavin Newsom unveils new plans to defund the police in crime-ridden state after massive budget deficit

In 2022 Newsom bragged of having a $97.5 billion surplus. Fast forward two years later and the state now faces a $45 billion deficit. Great job, democrats.

From the article:

California governor Gavin Newsom‘s proposed new budget would slash funding for the police as the state struggles with a massive deficit of at least $45 billion.

Last month the Democrat unveiled his budget for the next fiscal year, admitting that ‘difficult decisions’ are needed to address the state’s deficit – including a 1.6 percent reduction in the state’s Department of Justice’s overall funding.

The proposed budget includes a $97 million cut to trial court operations, $10 million to the Department of Justice’s Division of Law Enforcement and over $80 million to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, as reported by Fox News. 

Newsom’s plan comes as major national stores and local businesses in California say they continue to face rampant theft. Videos of large-scale thefts, in which groups of individuals brazenly rush into stores and take goods in plain sight, have often gone viral.

Crime data shows the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles saw a steady increase in shoplifting between 2021 and 2022. Across the state, shoplifting rates rose during the same time period but were still lower than the pre-pandemic levels in 2019, while commercial burglaries and robberies have become more prevalent in urban counties.

Meanwhile homelessness jumped 6 percent to more than 180,000 people in California last year, federal data show. And since 2013, the numbers have exploded by 53 percent with the state accounting for a third of America’s entire homeless population.

The state’s criminal justice record which saw the number of violent crimes jump by 27 percent between 2013 and 2022, and pickpocketing more than double.

This fool is as bad as his mother piglosie he will drive the state into the ground in a short time. And they even thought about running him instead of biteme but they ditched that. Good thing they did. Move if you live there move take their reveieune away in taxes if enough move they can’t operate the state and have to shut down.

Newsom is the former nephew-in-law of Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi is the sister-in-law of Ron Pelosi, who was married to Newsom’s aunt.

I did! No regrets.
Moved to a much better state — a red state, of course. Now, I actually have a governor with whom I agree on everything.

I cannot help but grieve for those citizens who due to their circumstances are not able to pick up and move. It is beyond shameful that so much money has been shifted from providing services for actual citizens of this country–to providing services for illegal aliens. No doubt Newsom just wants to pander to those he thinks will keep Democrats in office until the end of time. This whole scenario is heart-wrenching.

I just wonder when people are going to realize that this is all intentional. It’s not “stupid” politicians. They’re smart and their plan is working.

What do you mean “will defund fighting crime?” He doesn’t even have far to go: Crime is not punished here anyway. No borders. Sanctuary State. George Soros elected and backed Attorney Gen’l….nothing punished (except parents at school board meetings). California is the oasis of homelessness, drug usury and vending, limitless shop-lifting, squatter-theft of homes, car-jackings and “legal” illegal entry into this country frm anywhere in the world, without vetting….I teach in a school that used to be about 70% minority/English as a second language for years. It was a struggle then and now it’s almost 100%. I don’t even live in my own country anymore. It’s a place that belongs to everyone else but me.
