Calif. Parolees Include Meth Addict with Flame Thrower

July 21, 2011  | 

Law enforcement leaders around the county say state cutbacks leading to the freeing of so-called nonviolent offenders will lead to the release of offenders who are clearly a danger to society.

In California, Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley released a report detailing a few of those who would be freed — a methamphetamine addict caught in possession of a flame thrower, a woman who performed abortions without medical training and a credit-card hacker responsible for $6.5 million in losses.

When you send in more than 1000 ( I kid you not ) officers for a gang problem in a relatively small community in Calif. you know you have a serious failure to communicate. Nuts, gang members and illegals are running amuck in Calif. If there is any state in the union that needs the death penalty it is Calif. Unfortunately, with leaders like Pelosi and other liberals the situation will likely only get worse. The criminals are well aware that the prisons are over flowing and seem to be more brazen these days. Calif leaders in all their wisdom want to deter the average citizen from carrying a gun. Of course gang members don't worry about silly gun laws that the law abiding citizen does not want to violate.
