    I fear it's getting worse.

    It is the practice of the Legislature to hide bills they don't want the public to find out about in the budget. Hidden in this year's California's budget bill was AB1810. It could let more criminals off the hook.

    If you read the fine print, AB 1810 creates a plan to keep people charged with any crime — including murder, mass shootings, and fatal DUI’s — out of jail, as long as they can prove the crimes were committed because of a diagnosable mental disorder that can be treated, such as anxiety, alcoholism, kleptomania, etc.”

    The bill was proposed by the California Department of State Hospitals to address a growing wait list of people deemed mentally incompetent to stand trial. If a psychological evaluation determines a mental disorder, a person can bypass prison and complete a two-year diversion program. If successful, criminal charges could be dismissed and records sealed.

    Yep! I read about that one, too! I forgot about that.

    It seems hardly a day goes by that the legislature does not have a criminal friendly bill out there. They soft pedal all these crimes and are then surprised that crime is on the rise?!?!

    ...we will see a dumbing down of entrance exams, background and psych requirements...
    And probably the hiring of the criminals that are getting released from the state prisons.

    Or electing them to positions of lofty power and lacking the spine to square off and run the piece of sh!t out of town on a rail.

    I have reviewed many thousands of body cam and dash cam videos of law enforcement officers interacting with the public and criminal suspects. Yes, I have seen officers who were abusive and exhibiting bullying behavior. That is a minuscule minority. Much less than 1%. Overwhelmingly officers maintain composure and professionalism in the face of outrageous behaviors. Granted it only takes a handful of bad actors to create suspicion of law enforcement, but I'm not sure how you can ever achieve perfection. That is the standard too many people demand.

    Someone speculated that under this law, an officer accused of excessive force, manslaughter or murder as a result of shooting, etc., would be able to walk due to a diagnosis of cumulative PTSD. And without a felony conviction, and since the injury is work related, time off should be covered by workers comp. The officer should then be eligible for reinstatement once they "got themselves right," after therapy. Sounds like an invitation to "ready on the left? ready on the right?, the line is ready...Fire!"

    The thing about Sheriffs is that they are elected. They do not get vetted by a state bureaucracy, and in some cases are exempt from the same vetting a deputy or officer might be. Sheriffs are a different animal. The response there is to elect a new Sheriff or recall the one you have.

    As for deadly jobs, yep! Because law enforcement officers are trained and equipped, we have managed NOT to be one of the deadlier jobs. Though, you will NOT find another job where its practitioners are assaulted thousands of times each day. With some 60,000+ assaults on officers last year, the fact that we had so relatively few fatalies is a credit to the training and equipping of these officers.
