Terrible and sad news. Our increase in violent crimes parallels similar increases in Southern California, which is a few months ahead of us on their Defund the Police/Don’t Jail Anybody strategy. We still have time to get this under control but we will need “Jailbreak” Rosen (no relation) and county judges to step up and start enforcing the law. The PD is doing its job,the courts aren’t.
