Democrat lawmakers said, reducing one class of commercial burglary to a simple misdemeanor would be a good thing, we wouldn’t be sending too many non-violent people to prison for minor offenses. They also made theft’s under $900 a misdemeanor. They did away with multiple shoplifting arrests becoming a felony. Planning a raid on a store to steal expensive items is no longer a commercial burglary, which was a felony (see video below). Cops now can just issue a ticket and release the offenders..and all is good we’re told. No problems, we are so much better off now, right? Thank you democrats for doing this
to for us!
NOTE: If you use force or fear (take a wing at a store employee) to commit a theft, any theft, regardless of the dollar amount, that is still a strong arm robberry (211 PC) and it is a violent felony. Any person can make a citizens arrest for a felony committed in their presence and then use the force necessary to effect the arrest and detain until police arrive.
