Ron DeSantis just revealed a plan to keep California’s retail theft problem out of Florida

Feb 16, 2024

Crime is skyrocketing in cities and states all across the country. 

Ron DeSantis is working to make sure Florida remains a “law and order” state.

And Ron DeSantis just revealed a plan to keep California’s retail theft problem out of Florida.

Crime has become a major problem in states with Democrat Governors and cities with Democrat Mayors, such as California and New York City.

In these Democrat-run areas, criminals are often not pursued and those who are arrested are released right back onto the streets thanks to the soft-on-crime policies put in place by George Soros-installed prosecutors. 

These relaxed laws have sent crime rates for retail theft through the roof.

But while crime is skyrocketing in Democrat-run cities and states, Ron DeSantis is fighting hard to keep Florida a “law and order” state.

During a recent press conference, DeSantis declared his support for a bill in the legislature that would increase penalties for retail theft in Florida.

“The bill would make it a third degree felony for an individual who joins five or more people in retail theft, a second degree if the same group encourages others to join in through social media, and a first degree felony for any repeat offenders who have already been convicted of the same crime within a one year time period,” Florida’s Voice reported. “And the punishment for criminals who steal delivery packages from private properties will be a felony if the package is valued at or above $40,” Florida’s Voice continued. “Currently, the law enforces punishments of a felony if the product is valued at $100 or above.”

Shoplifting in the Sunshine State has decreased by 30% under DeSantis’ direction.

DeSantis vowed to keep crime down in Florida.

“If you commit a crime in Florida, you are going to be held accountable,” DeSantis said. “We will not tolerate retail crime, porch pirates and the lawlessness that they allow in California and New York.”

DeSantis ripped Democrat-run San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City for allowing retail crime to skyrocket to the point where “toothpaste is behind lock and key.” 

“Like, it’s almost like Fort Knox, some of these places, just for normal items,” DeSantis said. “You’ve got some problems and what you’ve seen in different cities, whether it’s San Francisco, L.A., New York, all these places, they’ve effectively enacted policies that legalize shoplifting.” 

“So, people just go in, they take what they want, they leave,” he added.

Crime is on the rise across the country.

But not in Florida.

And as long as he is Governor, Ron DeSantis plans to keep it that way.
