Assemblymember Waldron -Crime is Out of Control

Marie Waldron, State Assemblymember — Last week, a horrific shooting took place across the street from the California capitol building that left six dead and 12 injured. Sacramento is only the latest in a long list of city’s rocked by gang violence.

Our criminal justice system is broken – penalties continue to be weakened and early release programs have been accelerated, putting far too many dangerous felons back on the street. It is only making our community less safe.

I join my colleagues in calling for tougher sentences on gun and gang crimes and an end to early release of violent felons. We must hold criminals accountable and reverse the rise in crime that we are seeing throughout the state.

We also need to invest in rehabilitation programs to break cycles of addiction and lower drug-related offenses. Last year, I authored Assembly Bill 653 which creates a grant for substance abuse treatments in county jails and for those on supervised parole. Keeping people off the streets and reducing recidivism rates will keep our communities safer; not reducing penalties for crime.

Sincerely,
Marie Waldron, Assemblymember, 75th District
