According to Bill Jones the Three Strikes Law can be measured by these successes:

  •     50 percent drop in crime since 1994 when law was enacted
  • Exodus of Parolees to other states
  • Billions of dollars saved by deterring crime
  • Reduction in projected prison population
  • Eliminated plea bargaining

Objections raised by law enforcement critics:

  •     Supervised Judges could do better without the Three Strikes Law ... Chief Wm. Bratton
  • Don't want grandpas going to jail for stealing bread ... Sheriff Leroy Baca
  • Abuse of Penal Code 422 is coercive ... Anthony Patchett
  • We don't prosecute less serious crimes as Third Strike ... D.A. Steve Cooley
