A CBS News poll released last Friday indicates that crime is one the top three issues concerning Californians. 1800 state residents were inverviewed for the survey which found that wildfires were a considered the most important issue by 77%, with the corona virus second at 73% and crime ranking third with 68%. Only 50% felt protected by the police and 8% said they felt threatened by them. The constant “police are racists” drumbeat in the national media, coming from groups like Black Lives Matter and Democrat political leaders is undoubtedly responsible for the 8% who feel threatened. California laws reducing or eliminating the consequences for most crimes and progressive prosecutors in two of the state’s largest cities, who refuse to prosecute criminals, have convinced half of the state population that police cannot protect them.
