Ive said before, we need to have it so crimes drop off someones record automatically, felonies every 7 yrs and misdemeanors every 5 yrs, we CANNOT hold a person to their crimes FOR LIFE!!


Dont even get me started on 'drug addicts' either...one only needs to read up on why the war on drugs was originally created to understand why this is going on today, no one ever talks about how ALL these illegal drugs consistently enter the country and reach their destination (that does not happen by luck or coincidence. LOL)
Well, if a person convicted of a sex crime has served most or of all their sentence (at least 6.5 years) later re-offends then this is repeated at least once, would you say the same thing?

Why don't you just ask to have your record expunged?

Are you for real ? Do you think this POS deserves a second chance ? He deserves to be put down like a sick animal.

"Crime-ridden" SF ranks in the mid-30s for violent crime and 4th between Memphis and St. Louis in property crime. Squealing Fox News makes it sound like terror stalks the streets (well, I hear that maybe you do have to watch where you step in some areas). How they choose to label people with a criminal record is their business. It is a broad encompassing label and an administrative thing. Why should anyone care?

Felonies involving rape, sex crimes against children, murder, burglary, robbery, or assault with a deadly weapon (to name a few) should never be expunged. Non-violent felonies, sure, I'm fine with that.

We can rebrand anything while we're at it. Let's rebrand white supremacists as white enthusiasts and watch the liberal heads in San Francisco explode.

People who pay very high taxes for city services care! Parking is scarce like in most cities so everyone knows someone who has had their cars broken into. The problem is most crimes are ignored

Everyone agrees we have a huge problem, and last year the FBI confirmed what we already knew — the city had the highest per capita rate of property crimes among the 20 most populous U.S. cities in 2017, racking up 6,168 crimes per 100,000 people (the equivalent of about 150 per day).
