Taxpayers are footing the bill to clean up after Democrats’ failed pro-crime policies in this state

“Woke” leftist politicians created an atmosphere of absolute anarchy and destruction in 2020.

Now one Governor had the bright idea to grow his bureaucracy to deal with the mess.

And taxpayers will pay hundreds of millions to make up for their leaders’ incompetence.

California Governor Gavin Newsom wants to spend $300 million to deal with “smash-and-grab” thefts that have been plaguing retailers in the Golden State for more than a year.

Newsom’s plans include spending $18 million to create a new “theft unit.”

There is also $255 million earmarked for grants to help local police put more officers in stores to deter crime over the next three years.

Another $30 million would go to help District Attorneys go after criminals targeting retail stores and stealing vehicles.

According to CBS News, Newsom kept highlighting how retail crime has become a problem across the United States and has “a profound impact on our feelings of safety.”

He did not happen to point out that the crimes seem to be centered primarily in blue cities.

Newsom’s own San Francisco wine shop, PlumpJack, has been broken into four times this year.

While Newsom has suddenly decided that he is in favor of law-and-order, he doesn’t seem too interested in enabling small business owners to protect themselves.

He recently vowed to introduce new legislation that would allow private citizens to “sue anyone who manufactures, distributes, or sells an assault weapon or ghost gun kit or parts in CA.”

Smash-and-grab crimes have been targeting everything from small independent toy stores to large chains like Walgreens.

High end retailers have also been targeted from Louis Vuitton in San Francisco to a Bentley, Lamborghini, and Rolls-Royce dealership in Chicago.

The thieves smashed displays at the car dealership and swiped watches worth as much as two million dollars.
