Summary "The series looks at the so-called tough-on-crime mindset that has overtaken California’s criminal justice system." Everyone continues to want the bad guys punished and to keep them off the streets, but this too has consequences. California is struggling with finances, much like everyone else, and finding it difficult to fund public safety initiatives. They should be spending the money on education and social services, which influence the community and create obedient citizens.
