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)

Back in the 90s I predicted that in 20 years our country would become soft on crime and feel much love towards criminals. It seemed crazy at the time but I felt anger at the people of the future (our current time period) for how pro-criminal they would become. Sadly that wild prediction turned out to be true.

The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. To change the terms by which past behavior is defined can only lead to folly.

Add also Mike Judge's prediction with his movie "Idiocracy", San Francisco seems to be the Idiocracy as described in that movie.

Default Your daily dose of political correctness

What are your opinions regarding the mean language we use to describe criminals? I think this is just more pc drivel

SF Board of Supervisors sanitizes language of criminal justice system:

It seems ridiculous at first glance. I don't view the original terms as offensive in the least so I don't see the need to change IMO.

Pretty soon California will label the criminal as the victim and the victim as the criminal. This is the way that SJW "logic" works in 2019.

Look at it from this perspective...numerous cities and states have serious heroin epidemics going on (my state is one of them), we have lost 1000s of people to heroin overdose....but strangely, the state and federal govt HEAVILY regulates Suboxone (the drug that helps people come off heroin)!!??


How much sense does that make? LOL
