Governor Newsom recently recounted an eye-opening experience during a visit to a Target store, where he witnessed a theft unfolding before his eyes. Expressing his astonishment, he inquired why the store clerk did not intervene, only to be informed that the governor’s policies had led to a decrease in the pursuit of shoplifters. Despite his immediate denial, the underlying truth lies in Proposition 47 of 2014, a measure he actively supported, which downgraded the severity of theft up to $950 from a felony to a mere misdemeanor.
