The L.A. Times reports on Comrade Brown:
Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday signed into law a measure allowing Californians to break into and enter vehicles to rescue animals if they appear to be in danger from excessive heatDon't stop believing.... utilitarianism run amok. The Socialists have other plans for your property.
The bill by Assemblyman Marc Steinorth (R-Rancho Cucamonga), Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles) and others was introduced after a series of incidents in which dogs died after being left in closed cars on hot days.
"We're very excited about the lives this new law will save," Steinorth said in a statement on Facebook Saturday. "Thank you to everyone who helped us raise awareness of this serious issue and showed their support."
Under AB 797, a citizen must first call law enforcement to report a situation in which he or she believes an animal to be in peril.
