Rapper-turned-actor 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) took to Instagram on Saturday to share his feelings on just how bad Los Angeles, California, will become after instituting zero bail policies for a slew of offenses.

“LA is finished watch how bad it gets out there,” 50 Cent posted to his almost 30 million Instagram followers. “SMH.”

50 Cent was referencing a Fox 11 news hit discussing the policy shift, which is believed to destroy what little quality of life inhabitants of LA have left. Theft, shoplifting, drug use, vandalism, battery and a series of other crimes will no longer require offenders to post bail after their arrest.

At least one outlet, Deadline, tried to argue that the policy does not apply to violent crimes, but I would personally call battery a form of violence. Unless the dictionary definition of “battery” has changed to something other than “beating the heck out of someone,” I have no idea where Deadline got this idea from.

After reading Deadline’s report of his Instagram activity, 50 Cent called them out publicly for bringing up his historical run-ins with the law. But he noted that these are well into his past and that he is a born-again Christian.

The outlet also linked to a study shared by Fox News that found California’s violent crime tripled under a previous no-bail policy. So, 50 Cent is correct. By instituting a zero-bail policy, LA has essentially invited every single criminal to the enormous, sprawling megalopolis. God Bless those who remain within the confines of such terrible politics and social decline.
