Basket of deplorables
I think many are looking at this issue through something of a microscope. Even if there are laws on the books and the police can act the city attorney or district attorney will not file the charges. If they do get filed often the suspect will either get an extremely light sentence or told to not do it again. Society itself does not shun criminals they way we used to. Look around your own communities for those you know have spent time in the klink. How do people react to them? That can be very telling.
