"According to Mayor John Solis, sexual assaults are up about 300 percent and assaults with guns and knives up nearly 150 percent citywide since the realignment plan took effect a few months ago.
Under the realignment plan, many non-violent offenders end up in the county system instead of state prison and then get released early because of overcrowding.
Solis believes that makes the perpetrators even bolder."
I wish I could think up something really clever to say but all I can come up with is:
Just another really, horribly, bad idea that has worked out just as could be expected.
There are a bunch of politicians in this nation who need to be cast into the back of the darkest, dankest prison to rot for the remainder of their miserable lives as an example of how not to govern a once great people.
We will have just as much crime as we will tolerate. How's that working out in California? Huh?

Agreed. The answer to economic downfall is to not balance the budget at the expense of public safety. That should be common sense. It does no good to have a law enforcement agency, and cut down on incarceration.
At least the free states allow their citizens the ability to protect themselves from this scourge among it's populace.

Build more prisons, curtail the privileges, make them all serve full terms assigned, place all 'crocked' prison guards in with the population...I'll pay the extra taxes for just that...

I say bus all the thugs up to the Ice farms up by Hudson Bay.
That should keep'em busy, and start them second guessing their chosen career as a thug.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

I guess they just need tighter gun control laws out there.
Yep, if this keeps up, they will have to change their thinking on letting their citizens defend themselves!

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
With no severe deterrent criminals have less of a reason to not commit crime. Hell, with these sentencing guidelines in CA they are not even in the penalty box long.
