加利福尼亚州 政府. 加文·纽瑟姆(Gavin Newsom) said Wednesday that he thinks shoplifters should be prosecuted under existing California laws.

If people are breaking in, people stealing your property, they need to be arrested. Police need to arrest them. Prosecutors need to prosecute them. Judges need to hold people accountable for breaking the law,” 纽森说. “These are not victimless crimes, and I have no empathy for these criminal elements.

Newsom also called out local officials whom he said have been reluctant to arrest and prosecute these criminals.

I want to see local efforts. I want to see them stepped up,” said Newsom. “Look at the laws. You have the ability. Stack repeat offenders and move to prosecute.
