Actor and model Fabio Lanzoni told Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Friday night that he's worried about California, which he calls home.
"California is a mess," Fabio told Carlson, joking that "coming from Europe, I've already seen this movie before."
"I'm telling you, it's an epidemic," he explained. "Out of my friends, about 14 people got burglarized or robbed. As people, we have to take the law's side, we have to stand behind the police, not behind the criminal," he added.
The Italian model became a citizen last year and has lived in California for 14 years. He said he worries about people's safety as more people he knows, including himself, are affected by local robberies.
He also added that he thinks Gov. Jerry Brown "took the side of the criminal," claiming that the politician "lied to people," referring to Prop 57, Brown's effort to reshape California's criminal-justice system by offering a new chance at release from prison for many prisoners.
