Be glad you don't live there, but you better worry about who they're/we're electing here in Texas. While I generally agree that everything has been over-criminalized, if you stop prosecuting this stuff quality of life is going to go downhill quick.
With rare exception, offenses of shoplifting, trespass, threats, and larceny under $250 will no longer be prosecuted, as well as disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct, and “minor driving offenses,” according to the list.

Breaking and entering will not be prosecuted, as long as the perpetrator makes sure the property is vacant. Alternatively, those who commit break-ins of occupied homes because they are cold or tired, but don’t damage anything, will also be in the clear.

Offenders won’t have to worry about going to court over receiving stolen property or underage drinking, and won't be held accountable for wanton or malicious destruction of property, either.

Making threats
will also be permitted, with the exception of those related to domestic violence.

Drug possession will no longer be prosecuted in Suffolk County – even in cases where the suspect is a drug dealer.

Cases where an offender is charged with resisting arrest and nothing else will also be turned away, as well as any instances where the person resists arrest while being charged with another offense on Rollins’ “Charges to be Declined” list.

Sounds like antifa just got some get out of jail free cards. Oh wait, they don't go to jail with current laws. Maybe Suffock county is feeling neglected that Portland is getting all the antifa love and needed to create some incentives to move east.

Let's see if I got this straight. The new DA in Suffolk County Massachusetts (a.k.a., Boston) is proposing the same method of 'crime reduction' (i.e., just ignoring it) as the Parkland School District used with headcase Nikolaus Cruz. Think about how that worked out, and then think about applying that methodology to a population of 3/4's of a million people instead of just one high school.

Just another box checked off of the progressive socialists agenda. Don’t worry though, she will be there to prosecute you should you not get on the train.
