THE NEED FOR PROP 6 AS ASSERTED BY ITS SUPPORTERS Prop 6: ARGUMENTS USED IN SUPPORT Gang wrongdoing and murder rates in CA are drifting perilously upward- - a criminal equity emergency to which Prop 6 reacts FACT- - While posse manslaughters in Los Angeles are up, statewide California fierce wrongdoing rates including crime are down in the course of the most recent year and essentially bring down in the course of the most recent 20 years (Source: "Wrongdoing in California", CA Dept. of Justice, 2007) New pack concealment laws– with extreme new violations, punishments and indictments—will be successful in battling posse viciousness RESEARCHERS debate this noticing concealment strategies have not been observed to be compelling in lessening group savagery unless joined with techniques that give youth other options to posses.

The state spending plan for nearby law implementation surpassed $3.5 billion a year ago.
