Yes, that too. The emotional opposition is totally unfounded.

I get that Southern CA has awesome weather and are really nice places (particularly San Diego), but I don't equate having the highest average home price to being undervalued.

You think the housing values in CA are fine? That's interesting. Given how little housing has been built in Orange and LA counties since the 1990s, a lot of owners there feel the market is pretty undervalued.

Yes, the knife does matter. It's called armed robbery so the cop was justified in shooting the perpetrator. He was fired to appease the PC crowd. Hopefully he sues and gets reinstated.

All this over a toolbox. The suspect lost his life for stealing one item, and the cop lost his job for excessive force.
