Lawlessness in California continues to get worse, thanks in no small part to a 2014 referendum dubbed the Criminal Sentences. Misdemeanor Penalties. Initiative Statute.

A recent post by Adam Carolla -host of the show that bears his name- recently posted a video of two males walking out of a big box store with large quantities of merchandise.

Despite being filmed by the cameraman and in plain sight of multiple people, the two young men walked out of the store unopposed.

“Thanks to Prop 47 thefts under $950 will not be prosecuted, so cops will not bother showing up,” he posted to Twitter on Tuesday. “Just a reminder that you get what you voted for, California!”

Referred to the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act by many in 2014 Prop 47 effectively recategorized some nonviolent offenses as misdemeanors instead of felonies.

The crimes affected include shoplifting, grand theft, receiving stolen property, forgery, fraud, and writing a bad check, so long as none of the offenses exceed $950.

Prop 47 passed by less than a 20 percent margin.
