Sorry if the truth hurts. He and his ilk have routinely excused the most vile criminality in the name of "Social Justice" or other such farces.

The real sad thing here is that Liberal Progressives have always been on the right side of history, with civil rights, women's rights, gay rights/marriage, etc., until recently.

Then progressives like you came along and brought us policies like the ones allowing shoplifters to get away with up to $900, renters to not pay rent for 3 years during "Covid Emergency," "Defund the police," and transexual guys competing against women in sporting events, just to name a few. Guys like you are the reason that someone like Trump could win in 2016. I could never vote for such a vile narcissist, but apparently nearly half of the country was thinking that someone like Trump was better than letting the Left Wingers like you implement policies that poo-poo law enforcement. I agree that the police need to be monitored and audited, but you don't seem to have a clue about the need to deter and punish criminals. To those swing voters who are in the Middle of the political spectrum, Left Wingers like you are more scary than someone like Trump! How else does someone who was impeached twice (for very real offenses) even come close in the national election?
It would behoove you to fact check yourself. The felony threshold for shoplifting in California is $950 and only 10 states have a threshold lower than $1000. https://worldpopulationreview.com/st...mount-by-state

As far as the eviction moratorium, Trump signed the first one in Oct 2020 https://nlihc.org/resource/trump-adm...landlords-over

And regarding your claim that "The police are much more heavily monitored these days", do you have anything to back that up?

I don't know what you are even talking about.

If they aren't reported they don't make it into the crime stats. Do you have proof that fewer offenses are prosecuted than a decade ago or is it just a 'feeling' you have?

No, I voted against Newsom and for the recall. I've been around long enough to know bad things happen when Bay Area people bring their BS to other platforms.

Yeah, I have to admit, I'm hard-pressed to think of legit tourist attractions in Sac. I had a friend passing through there recently, asking me if there was anything good to do in town, and I couldn't really tell him anything other than the state capitol and Old Sac.

I mean there are other cities I'd say the same thing about, especially in the west. Spokane, Phoenix, Tucson, Denver, Boise... nothing super worth seeing in town for someone who isn't a city buff. I notice that with SF at least, a lot of our appeal is in the historic stuff (streetcars, Chinatown, organized crime tours, Haight-Ashbury) --- ditto for Seattle. I don't actually really know anything about Sac's history, but that could be something to play up. Was there an old ethnic neighborhood that's largely (or entirely) disappeared but could be revitalized?

Or since it's a Central Valley city, maybe lean into the agricultural connection? I could see a Sacramento Almond Festival or Fruit Festival or Wine Festival or whatever being big.

SF has turned into a giant outdoor sewer of open air drug markets and massive crime and homeless everywhere! So sad as it was nice place 30 years ago!
