Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, January 11, 2020

Epp says the department was first alerted to the bait bike videos in July, and the attacks allegedly continued through November. Clips posted to Curnutt's public YouTube account are what helped them make an arrest. Those videos have since been taken down. Investigators say there are at least four victims who were beaten with aluminum bats, but there could be more. "They're reluctant victims, so they're not wanting to come out and say, 'yeah, I was stealing a bike and got assaulted,'" Epp said. Epp says when it comes to enforcing the law, leave it to the professionals.

This is what happens when stealing < $980 from you on a daily basis, isn't serious enough to bring out the cops.

Shocking that decriminalizing crime generates more crime.

I generally don't like hitting people with a beer bottle, but I will.
I can't imagine hitting somebody with a bat. It would be too easy to kill somebody that way. Unless you just hit their legs, but if I snapped somebody's shin while beating them I'd be dry heaving for an hour and incapacitated.

Those two look too white trashy to root for, but I do applaud the idea in general of bike vigilantes.

I love morons

Ok, here are some facts

CA Proposition 47 reduced the criminal offense for theft under $950 from a felony to a misdemeanor.

en.wikipedia.org

"Tough on crime" State Texas

www.criminaldefenselawyer.com

State Jail Felony Theft
Theft is a state jail felony in Texas if the value of the property or services stolen is $1,500 or more but less than $20,000,

The states with the LOWEST felony theft threshold?

www.themarshallproject.org

Florida, Virginia and those bastions of conservativism-NJ and MA

On the other end of the spectrum-liberal SC has one of the highest felony theft thresholds of $2,000, liberal bastions like AL and GA also have higher felony theft thresholds than CA.

SOOOO facts show on this issue CA is tougher on crime than TX, AL, GA and SC

I guess sometimes the truth really does hurt.

As the Drudge Nanny you understand that I'm very disappointed in you, Troofy. You introduced facts into the discussion and that simply won't do.

CA Proposition 47 reduced the criminal offense for theft under $950 from a felony to a misdemeanor.

CA misdemeanor (no classification): By crime; if no punishment specified, up to 6 months, $1,000, or both

Texas:
Theft is a class A misdemeanor in Texas if the value of the property or services stolen is $500 or more but less than $1,500. ( 31.03(e)(3).) The punishment for a class A misdemeanor in Texas is a sentence of confinement in jail for a term of no more than one year, a fine of not more than $4,000, or both. ( 12.21.)

TX Class A misdemeanors are punishable by up to a year in jail. The crime of harassment, committed by someone with a prior conviction for the same crime, is a Class A misdemeanor. (Tex. Penal Code 42.07.)

Sorry Jeffy, tooth trouted you .... it happens, but you should do more research before jumping on the ToothyTrailOfLies.

Just because one state calls it a misdeameanor doesn't mean the punishment is less than CA Felonies

Gee, ADementedMatress, THAT is your defense of your statement that cops won't respond to a theft of less that $950? That somehow up to 6 months in jail is the police not showing up?

hmmm

www.wklaw.com

When theft involves property stolen valued at over $950, the charge can become grand theft. A felony theft conviction is punishable by 16 months to three years in custody. In California, felony grand theft is codified under Penal Code Section 487, which states that grand theft is the "unlawful taking of another's property valued above $950.

So you steal $1,000 in CA you get up to 3 years in jail, in Texas you get 1 year.

CA is tougher on crime in this instance than Texas, FACT

The only liar on this thread is you as has been demonstrated countless times
