“Everything we see on TV is just more and more violent crimes, vehicular seizures and thefts,” Bianco said. “People are afraid to go out. They are afraid to let their children go to the park. They are afraid to let their children walk to school.”

Crime rates skyrocketed in California after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic—violent crime increased 5.6% statewide from 2020 to 2021, and property crime increased nearly 2% over the same time frame.

“There is not a single bill that would pass through the Committee on Public Safety if it added a provision or penalty,” Bianco said. “If the criminal were to be held accountable by imprisonment or imprisonment, the Committee of Public Safety would not allow this bill to even be voted upon.”

Bianco said law enforcement and law-abiding in California don’t have any help from lawmakers.

“They are part of the problem, if not the whole problem,” he said.
