For years on end, the state of California has been under the firm control of Democrats. Unfortunately, this isn’t doing California much good, especially in recent years.
This state continues to make the news for its struggles with homelessness, crime, and major lifestyle differences between the rich and the poor. Leaders of California, for all their talk, have failed to rise to the occasion. They’ve also failed to bring about genuine change.
Recently, Americans just learned about the gruesome death of CashApp founder Bob Lee. Lee lost his life in San Francisco, California after being knifed to death in broad daylight.
Amid his passing, leaders of the state are once again being called upon to effectuate change, according to Fox News.
California Governor, San Francisco Mayor Put on the Spot
Ricci Wynne, a former drug dealer, recently appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight with a clear message for California Governor Gavin Newsom and San Francisco Mayor London Breed.

According to Wynne, leftist “social experiments” have failed California, costing people their lives, freedom, and safety. The activist also pointed out that policies like permitting drug use at certain locations and defunding law enforcement are only making life worse for California residents.
Describing the Golden State’s plight as disheartening, Wynne told Carlson that the death of the CashApp founder in San Francisco is only going to drive more people out of the community.
Will Democrats Listen?
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that California Democrats have been called out for adverse policies that are ripping communities to shreds. It goes without saying that Democrats failed to heed these warnings, simply going on with business as usual.
San Francisco has been grappling with an exploding crime rate in recent years.
The city's crime rate 111% higher than the national crime rate average and 91% higher than the California average, San Francisco's violent crime rate is 40% higher than the national average.

Both Newsom and Breed have had years on end to put forward better reforms that ensure the safety and prosperity of communities. So far, they haven’t done it and judging from their track records, no one should hold their breath waiting.This article appeared in The Conservative Brief and has been published here with permission.
