30,000 Calif. caregivers arrested in '03
Note that the figure covers calandar year 2003, which is only half over.
[DSS Director Rita] Saenz said most of the arrests were for minor offenses, such as petty theft or creating a public nuisance, and 2 percent involved more serious crimes.
Still, about 1,500 arrest reports have been coming through her office each week, causing a backlog, Saenz said.
That two percent is still 600 serious crimes. If Davis was a Republican, there would be outraged screaming from all the special-interest groups lined up on the left. (Look at the response in Florida to GOP governor Jeb Bush's troubles with foster-care programs. It's instructive.) But because Davis is a Dem, expect a muted response to the whole scandal.
