Considering high school drop out rate in this state, criminal activity is to be expected.
Kids learn skills to offer an employer, ethics and empathy for their fellow man in school, at home and in church. OR kids will learn a skill set of the streets, where empathy for their fellow man is an unknown, self centered take what they want mentality and violence is but a tool to achieve their needs.
CA used to hide their educational failures in state prisons which became too embarrassing and expensive to run. So DEMs emptied state prisons. Think of increase we’re seeing as your reward for electing DEMs.
Would not be surprised if person is already on parole or probation, after all this is soft on crime CA where a criminal has to really work hard to end up in state prison.
