Measure B also passed, the San Fernando Valley industry will likely suffer due to out of state competition. Even worse, tax money will be used on the state for an office of people watching porn to make sure rules are followed. I can see it now: tissue boxes labelled "your tax dollars at work".
It makes no sense to me that the death penalty was not repealed, but
voters decided to ease up on the three strikes rule. I'm against the
death penalty in theory, but it happens rarely in California (13
executions since 1978, less than 2% of convicted murders) so it's not a big deal. But changing the three
strikes law will cause more criminals to be on the streets. A felony is a
felony, why should it have to be violent crimes? Fool me once, shame on
you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, fuck you. If they
don't learn after two felonies, they don't deserve to be in society.
Just think from a economic point of view. The two-strike-criminal's fear
just went down by ridiculous margins. He can now resume selling meth
and stealing cars FOREVER.
