One Year In, Has Prop 47 Made California Less Safe?

Hosted by  • 

Just last November, California voters approved Prop 47 by an overwhelming 60 percent. Already, there are calls for making change because of so-called "unintended consequences." We hear from Ben Poston of the LA Times and from two prosecutors who disagree about whether the measure’s responsible for an increase in crime.
