VACAVILLE— You’ve likely seen the videos on social media or the local news: groups of people rushing into a store, grabbing armfuls of merchandise. The brazen crimes are on the rise and CBS13 has learned, in most cases, the crooks get away from authorities. After searching police reports and arrest records, CBS13 found that while the rate of these grab and dash crimes is on the rise, the rate of arrest is down. We turned to law enforcement and the retail industry for answers. Both blame a California law intended to make “neighborhoods safe.”

And California wants Pres Trump to come in and fix the fires and homelessness. California owns all their problems including this.

Why would anyone open a retail store in any of these states or counties where prosecutors don't prosecute?

I'm surprised that this isn't happening all over the country and the world. I guess it is too much work to get organized. (Umm, this could be a new gig for community organizer Barry. He gets a cut of the booty.)

Golly. You mean if you allow people to steal $750 or more worth of stuff, they'll do it? It's kind of like other government give aways that go belly up. Free loans? People who can't afford it will buy houses. Free tuition? People who can't afford it will take out student loans for worthless degrees. Free stuff? People who can't afford it will just take it.

The democrat progressives are destroying large segments of America by pandering to criminals. Laws like this lure people to become criminals, because they no longer fear arrest and punishment.

In a smart world these stores would be permitted to set up a bullet-proof booth at each door with a guard holding a nice short 12 gauge and permission to use it. That or one of those escape- proof compartments that many banks have between two sets of doors. No police chase, no doubt about guilt. It would be like trapping monkeys in box cages. Many big stores, Walmart included, advise employees to let shoplifters just walk out. The loss of a 60 inch big screen costs them less than the inevitable lawsuits filed by the thieves.

Voters in CA can thank themselves for this one. They passed Prop 47 labelled as the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act. Who isn't for safe neighborhood's and school's? Sounds great doesn't it?? Too bad voters don't read their voter pamphlets but instead vote based on some ridiculous 15 second political ad. San Francisco alone averages 82 car break ins a day. It has become a cottage industry in SF. Teams of thief's prowl the streets daily smashing windows in broad daylight as apathetic onlookers stroll by. Don't bother calling the police, they don't care and won't show up when you call them. This is how societies break down - but what the heck, at least the prison population is down....

If you thought you can’t top the stupidity we experienced in 2019, brace yourself for 2020 because it’s going to be a pronoun-fueled weather cult pinko freakshow. But it won’t be all amusing antics – the left hates us and its ugly mask is coming off, revealing the even uglier fascist visage lurking beneath. If you listen to them, and if you aren’t an insufferable goo goo wimp who refuses to hear them, you will know that they intend to silence you, even imprison you, and deprive you of the ability to participate in your own governance. So, if you want to live as a free man or woman –

Democrats, fast on the heels of new impeachment articles against President Donald Trump, have seemed to have settled on their election and reelection strategy for 2020 — impeach ‘til the cows come home. It’s one click past witch hunt and one small, very small step before “get the somofableep!” Republicans, ever the party of the genteel, have a different phrase for it; they call it “overplaying one’s hand.” And certainly, Democrats, digging as they are for more articles of impeachment, even as they hold tight to the existing articles of impeachment, even as they send dictates over to the Senate to command-control

The IRS placed a tax lien on Hunter Biden seeking $112,805 in unpaid taxes from 2015, according to records the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained. The federal agency issued the previously unreported lien in November 2018 and it seeks unpaid taxes for a year in which Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, served on the boards of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings and the Chinese private equity firm BHR Partners. “We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid,” the IRS stated in the lien notice, which it filed with the Washington, D.C., Recorder of Deeds.

Taxpayers in California and New York shoulder some of the heaviest tax burdens in the nation, and now new data show the two have something else in common: Their growth rates have slowed. It’s probably no coincidence. According to the California Department of Finance, during the year that ended June 30, more people left the Golden State than moved in — the first time that’s happened since 2010. Its net population grew by 141,300, to 39.96 million. That’s a increase of just 0.35 percent, down from 0.57 percent growth over the prior 12 months. Together, the two years mark California’s smallest growth in more than a century.

That passenger was identified as Stephen Berzas, 37. Three other persons, including two U.S. postal employees, who were on the ground at the time of the crash, suffered injuries, Lafayette Fire Department spokesman Alton Trahan said.

Sue Lyon, who at 14 was cast in the title role of Stanley Kubrick’s “Lolita,” a film version of Vladimir Nabokov’s eyebrow-raising novel about a middle-aged man who becomes obsessed with a 12-year-old girl, died on Thursday in Los Angeles. She was 73. Phil Syracopoulos, a longtime friend, announced her death. He said she had been in declining health for some time. Ms. Lyon accumulated more than two dozen film and television credits from 1959 to 1980, but she was known primarily for one: Mr. Kubrick’s 1962 film of the Nabokov novel, which was adapted for the screen by Mr. Nabokov himself.

It turns out that 2020 Democrat presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden has no intention of testifying during a Senate impeachment trial against Donald Trump. During a discussion with the Des Moines Register editorial board Friday, Biden said that even if he were subpoenaed for testimony, he wouldn't attend. "The reason I wouldn't is because it's all designed to deal with Trump doing what he's done his whole life, trying to take the focus off him.

The latest call to action from some criminal-justice activists: “Abolish the police.” From the streets of Chicago to the city council of Seattle, and in the pages of academic journals ranging from the Cardozo Law Review to the Harvard Law Review and of mainstream publications from the Boston Review to Rolling Stone, advocates and activists are building a case not just to reform policing—viewed as an oppressive, violent, and racist institution—but to do away with it altogether. When I first heard this slogan, I assumed that it was a figure of speech, used to legitimize more expansive criminal-justice reform. But after reading the academic and activist literature,

Theodore McCarrick, the first Catholic cardinal to be defrocked over sexual abuse allegations, sent over $600,000 to powerful clergy in the Church over almost two decades, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post. The payments started in 2001 and went to high-level clergy around the world, including Vatican bureaucrats, papal advisers and two popes, according to the documents and former Church officials. In total, the former cardinal gave money to over 100 officials, several of whom were closely involved in assessing misconduct claims against McCarrick, the Post reports.

We are now looking at 2019 in our rear view mirrors, since it is time for those irritating “The Best/Worst of the year” lists. This past year was full of irritations, on many levels, from the shallow and superficial, to the rarest of rare political actions taken by the most irritating Congress in history. Let’s start with some of the candidates:Speaking of shallow and superficial, there is that previously little-known actor Jussie Smollett.

An editor pressed him, “Is that across the board? So if it’s meth or coke or ecstasy, any drugs, if it’s possession, incarceration isn’t…” “That’s right,” Mayor Pete said.

Lewis, a Democrat who has represented Georgia's 5th Congressional District for over 30 years, said doctors discovered the cancer during a routine visit. "While I am clear-eyed about the prognosis, doctors have told me that recent medical advances have made this type of cancer treatable in many cases, that treatment options are no longer as debilitating as they once were, and that I have a fighting chance," Lewis said in a statement.

The former vice president, who served two terms under Obama, was answering questions during a campaign event Saturday in Washington, Iowa when he was asked if he’d ever nominate the 44th president to the nation’s highest court. “If he’d take it, yes.” Biden said in response. The move, if Biden were elected as president in 2020, would make Obama the second president in American history to also serve as a Supreme Court justice.

Recent elections in Virginia have placed the Virginia government within arm's length of widespread gun confiscation. Around eighty-four counties and cities throughout the Commonwealth have pledged to ignore and resist these measures. Some Virginia elected officials have called for the National Guard to carry out such confiscation, which would imply the arrest and disarmament of local officials who get in the way. Governor Northam has stopped short of adopting such an idea, but he will not rule it out. Additional stories indicate that the government will disable internet and telephone access to affected areas during the crackdown.
