The Democrat-ruled state of California has become a cesspool, filled with degenerates whose crimes are either ignored or their punishment is so minimal that they are emboldened to continue with their crime sprees. Stores facing out-of-control crime are left with no choice but to close their businesses, leaving innocent members of the communities with nowhere to shop for essential items.
