I was in discussion with a neighbor yesterday, explaining that some of the west coast cities are now facing far more serious difficulty with thefts and robberies than what Floridians have to deal with here. Case in point, a recent Twitter message surfaced, below, to indicate this point:
As previously indicated in our post in Did CA Prop 47 Contribute To Closing Of 17 Walgreens In San Francisco? this is resulting from California Proposition 47, which lowered penalties for nonviolent thefts under $950 as misdemeanors (punishable by up to 6 months in county jail) rather than felonies. An excerpt from wikipedia about what 2014 California Proposition 47 is all about, in italics, below:
Proposition 47, also known by its ballot title Criminal Sentences. Misdemeanor Penalties. Initiative Statute, was a referendum passed by voters in the state of California on November 4, 2014. The measure was also referred to by its supporters as the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act. It recategorized some nonviolent offenses as misdemeanors, rather than felonies, as they had previously been categorized.
By July, 2021, 17 Walgreen locations in San Francisco have closed their doors and in April, 2022, Walgreen(s) that remain open in San Francisco area apparently had to resort to have most, if not all, items in the store under lock and key. Many small businesses in SF had to leave or close their businesses. This is definitely different from Walgreens in Florida, where there had been no law such as that of CA Proposition 47.
