California dems show true colors

I have no words to express how insane it is that these California senators killed this bill.


Here is a quote from an article I'm going to link here.


"Understandably determined to avoid repeating California’s failed history of mass incarceration, many Democrats are now wary of increasing penalties for any crime, even the most egregious. This has resulted in stances that are almost impossible to justify."


The law Republicans wanted to increase the punishment on? Human trafficking of minors. What did the Democrats do? They killed it. Because classifying it as a felony is good enough. Why is that? Here is their reasoning:


"The committee chairperson, Assembly Member Reggie Jones-Sawyer of Los Angeles, noted that human trafficking can already result in lengthy sentences and can be classified as a “serious” crime under certain conditions, such as if great bodily injury was inflicted on the victim. 

This reasoning — child trafficking should only be considered “serious” if the victim endures additional horrifying circumstances on top of being trafficked — illuminates how far some Democrats are willing to go to uphold ideological principles that, when carried to their logical extreme, are no longer morally defensible."


I couldn't have said that last part better myself.


Go read the article then tell me what you think about this
