THE DYSFUNCTIONAL STATE OF CALIFORNIA Newsom also signed a law that decriminalizes jaywalking because of “racism.” The “Freedom to Walk Act,” will prevent law enforcement from stopping people who are crossing the street not at a crosswalk unless they are in visible danger. The law’s proponents insist that jaywalking is a racist crime because it is allegedly enforced unfairly in “communities of color” where people allegedly cannot afford to pay the fines.
California is losing its sanity – not to mention many of its citizens.
When I moved to California in 1983, the state was terrific. The weather was fabulous, the coastline and mountains were spectacular, the people were friendly, and the government was normal.
That was then. Over the past forty years the first three have remained constant, but now many of the state’s politicos are bonkers.
