It would be nice if Becton took actual crimes seriously, but we know that's not going to happen.

Absolutely ridiculous, draconian control measures. Don’t arrest actual criminals.... Instead harass the working citizens of this county who pay all the taxes by sending peeping Toms into our community. Find your stones and stand up to this crazy Governor and open our state! This sounds more like Nazi Germany with the gestapo running around enforcing the rule of law. Look at Florida and Texas and learn how it’s done.

At least Candace Anderson (CC County Board) seems to be actually concerned about crime, and is asking the right questions. But DA Becton seems to think that not social-distancing, mask violations, or small businesses fighting to survive, are more significant problems than someone stealing a mere $300 worth..... We now live in Bizarro World, where good is bad and right is wrong (and vice versa).....

Fact: Felons are being released from jail in Contra Costa County due to COVID but the DA wishes to waste the time of law enforcement and his office chasing down so called violators who are simply starving...literally starving to keep their businesses and relationships alive. Insanity.
