Non-violent crimes...read robbery, theft, break-ins and drug dealing....it seems, are being decriminalized by the left. The progressives seem to view this as simply 'misguided youth' who have been neglected by society and therefore seem to have some kind of right to invade the property of others with very little impunity.

This seems to be the new platform of the far left, who seems willing to openly admit it. From the last Democrat debate....

“The fact of the matter is that what's happened is that we're in a situation now where there are so many people who are in jail and shouldn't be in jail. The whole means by which this should change is to — the model has to change,” he said, adding: “Nobody should be in jail for a nonviolent crime.” Joe Bidden

Hmmmmmm.

So, if local municipalities, many of which are far to the left, adopt this approach to law enforcement which will teach the theives and robbers that they will be detained and released when apprehended in the act of drug trafficing or robbery....will this simply lead to open, daylight entries into homes they are confident do not contain firearms or residents, such as the elderly, who cannot defend against this kind of intrusion?

Think about that.
