    The dignity and morality of our So Cal residents has declined, greatly. I remember when we rarely heard about a hit-and-run. People had more character and decency 10-15 years ago, and would never have dreamed of not stopping. Are these criminal residents, afraid of deportation or re-incarceration? What has changed?
