    I used to party with Charlie back in the late 50’s. He was normal back then. In fact I remember one time a dude passed out and Charlie peed all over him. When the guy woke up Charlie gave him a couple rags to dry himself off. That’s how considerate Charlie could be!!

    There are no real consequences for serious crimes/criminals in California and practically zero law enforcement on drugs. Felonies are a mere slap on the wrist here. Dangerous drugs such as heroin & meth are a misdemeanor in California. (unless being sold in large quantity….WHAT???) California serves little to NO justice to victim’s but coddles/protects their criminals. Some of the most brutal criminals are made celebrities in this state. EXAMPLE: The filthy animal Charles Manson, still alive, and considered news worthy to date. The victims and tax payers have paid, still paying, for Manson’s medical treatments, to house and feed him. Justice would have put him to death back in the 1970’s. California’s death penalty is no more than a bogus threat criminals and sympathizers count on. California is the prime example of no consequences for crimes, where drugs are legal and sentence to crimes are not made speedily if at all. California law makers care nothing about the people. It’s money over justice ruled by lobbyist. This is a celebrity state where money & greed prevail. Though California is the most beautiful state in the US with the most to offer families. Due to this greedy corruption, we have drug/sex traffickers ruling the streets and cities of California. No respect for law enforcement instead there is boldness in the hearts of our young and rightly angry. There is no fear of consequences because there are none in California. No matter what the crime! California allows it’s agencies, activist, sympathizers for criminals to overrule LAW! Police officers no longer have superior authority and cannot enforce what laws are passed. People are fighting, screaming, standing up for their rights, chaos, rudeness, HATE, rape, murderers every where. Right is wrong and wrong is right in the beautiful state of California….sadly!
