Governor Falsely Claims Crime is Down in California

Sharing is Caring!

Critics have blamed Prop 47, which in 2014 reclassified some crimes like shoplifting to misdemeanors instead of felonies, resulting in lower penalties. However, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) claimed there’s actually a decline in crime in the state.
