    This is more Kalifornia craziness – a felon found with a gun is released!!???
    My guess, if he had been an otherwise law abiding citizen the book
    would have been thrown at him.

    When my house was broken into, it took the cops 2 hours to show up … you have been given a false sense of security and in this day and age we should all concealed carry … just look at the protests, the cops are here to protect the established few, they are sycophants waiting to take your hard earned money just to pay their wages.
