What goes on in CA

I am an avid watcher. Do not agree with everything but most decisions. The last minute choices they have to make is hard to judge unless you are in situation My thoughts are what the heck is with these California areas. Every week is shootings, bank robberies, gun whipping at tax office. No other states have crime like this. Truck got shot and he had a baby seat right in his back seat. I have no idea why people want to live there.
