    That call was so bad that it's pretty clear that the ump knew it was a ball and called it a strike out of spite. He didn't like the batter's reaction to the previous call, so he punished him.

    Never show up the ump. If you don't get tossed from the game outright, you will be punished in other ways.

    True, but an ump doing that needs to be fired on the spot.

    ^Excerpt from the linked article:
    ____________________________________________________________
    Mr. Canepa said that he originally backed Prop. 47 because he saw it as a chance to give people serving long sentences for retail theft a second chance.

    One of the most well-known statutes in Prop. 47 raised the minimum amount of stolen goods from $400 to $950 for a theft case to be classified as a felony, which critics consider to be the main cause of a rise in petty theft across the state.

    The liberal crime bill also allows felons currently serving prison terms to petition for reduced sentences under the new classifications.

    "I thought it was a good idea then because we need to give people an opportunity, we need to give people a chance," Mr. Canepa told CBS.

    But now, with the explosion of retail theft in California and elsewhere, he says he was wrong to back the measure.

    "I made a mistake, it was a big mistake, and you have to acknowledge your mistake. By doing this, what we've done is we're, letting people take thousands and thousands of dollars. And why should people be subjugated?" Mr. Canepa said.

    __________________________________________________________

    Now comes the hard part - getting the law repealed and enforcing jail time on offenders. We'll see if someone else will step up and join him in a crusade against this atrocious law.

    Impressive to see any politician admit he or she made a mistake.

    No way he will. He supported the bill based off feel good liberal group think, but in true liberal behavior he won't have the spine to work on legislation to get it over turned.

    One again this week, Nashville elected another progressive leftist as mayor. On NextDoor, the liberals complain about the ongoing crime, homelessness and high taxes. Yesterday, a Louis Vuitton store was robbed in the middle of the day. Security guards tried to stop it so they were apparently fired.

    I think you have to go back further than '20. It really goes back to the Ferguson riots in '14 and the media's and Justice Department's hyping of them. That's when BLM really became a big national movement and when white liberals went crazy.

    This was a set-up or a joke, right? It had to be.

    Unbelievable. I certainly hope those young idoits are going to prison for the rest of their lives.

    Will be interesting to see how Vegas DA handles this.
    This prevalent attitude and reality SHOULD be a wake up call.
