There is Growing Backlash for Prop 57 in Fresno County
Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims is concerned that Proposition 57, which allows for early release for some convicted felons deemed to non-violent by the State Parole Board, is eroding the public sense of crime and consequence. Mims wrote a scathing letter that accuses the State Parole Board of mishandling the releases of three convicted felons into Fresno County, altering the number of felonies committed by the prisoners released, and sugar coating their criminal histories. Mims says things may get much worse before they improve and she is correct. Californian’s need to worry more about increasing public safety and Prop 57 isn’t making it any safer.
