Proposition 47 and 57

Proposition 47 and 57 have tied law enforcement’s hands and empowered repeat offenders.  Under Prop. 47, current law only allows deputies to issue citations for crimes like shoplifting and home burglary.  It is no surprise that since the passage of these propositions Orange County has seen an increase in property crimes.  We must repeal Prop. 47 and 57 to restore accountability to our criminal justice system.
