    This sounds like a good thing to me. Less enforcement of unjust legislation. Sure, they aren’t doing this for moral reasons, but the effect is the same.

  2. Hypnagogue Says:

    I rather think that robbery, assault, battery, trespassing, and grand theft fall well beyond the gray area of “unjust legislation.”

  3. Jim W Says:

    They’re dropping drug possession. Whoop dee doo.

  4. Hypnagogue Says:

    Does no one know how to read? This is NOT about “dropping drug possession”: from the fine article —

    “4. Misdemeanor property crimes (e.g., 484, 487, 503, 459, 470, 594.
    5. Simple assault or battery cases”

    484 – Theft
    487 – Grand Theft
    503 – Embezzlement
    459 – Burglary
    470 – Forgery
    594 – Vandalism
    240 – Assault
    242 – Battery

    I prefer this to adding more police and prosecutors. Those guys are misused as revenue sources and muscle for the status quo for too long. Look at the Police Chief in Milwalkee- he’s enforcing laws that don’t exist. Maybe he can send them some people.

    They could end the drug war and save money and personell. Be about the same as ending prohibition on liquor…they would bankrupt some criminals is about all.

    In Texas, we have over 2300 separate felonies alone….including 11 involving oysters.

  6. Tom Stone Says:

    Robert,are those felonies involving oysters sex crimes?
