It’s Now “Escape From New York and California”

The more I watch the news, the more I cannot believe how stupid the voters of states like New York and California are. Really. They both have laws that do not allow for cash bail in crimes, letting most of those arrested by police to walk out the door before the arresting officer has completed the original paperwork. Most of these are violent felons, and a large percentage end up rearrested for other crimes. But that makes no difference to the justice system in either state. Of course, judges have to obey the laws as written but the voters should, at least by now, be outraged enough that they would want a significant change in the current legislatures. When crime is allowed to go unpunished, what else is to be expected? Crime is definitely a reason why people are fleeing both states.
