Electing Democrats undermines citizen safety

Accelerated release of prisoners also jeopardizes public health

There’s a lot of talk about ‘Criminal Justice Reform’ these days. Restructuring the American criminal justice system is a pet project of the left, most notably driven by open borders Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros. He began in earnest in 2016 by giving more than $20 million to Democrat candidates, even funding Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone and a liberal challenger to then-County Attorney Bill Montgomery, who won despite the high dollar infusion. Soros’ efforts and spending have intensified in advance of the 2020 election.

You might not have heard of “decompression” relating to prison populations, but that is the word being bandied about in California as Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom is planning another release of prison inmates onto the state’s streets.

Efforts at “decompression” within California’s prison system during the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in a prison population that has plummeted by approximately 10,000 prisoners.

When rational people think of a statewide emergency response to the virus, it wouldn’t entail swinging open the cell doors in San Quentin Prison and releasing thousands of offenders so hard core that they end up in a facility that as of 2015 its death row held a capacity of 715 prisoners, though executions no longer take place. Trespassers, jaywalkers and petty thieves are not part of the population.

The intent is to release enough prisoners to make the population so low density as to allow “social distancing” for the inmates who remain, a policy that is more attuned to a ladies luncheon than a penitentiary system.

Vern Pierson, the Republican district attorney in Northern California’s El Dorado County, called it “concerning” for public safety, saying the criteria the prison system will use to decide which inmates to release remains unclear. “The Newsom administration also has not made clear whether crime victims and prosecutors will be given notice when an inmate is released or if they will be able to file objections,” said Pierson, president of the California District Attorneys Association. “We don’t know what the actual impact of this is going to be. We do know that it’s a high likelihood there will be significant increases in crime,” Pierson said.

Pierson noted that because of changes made to California’s criminal justice system in recent years — including the release of many offenders whose crimes weren’t considered violent — those still in state prisons tend to be the most serious offenders.

    Leftists revel in their chosen roles as compassionate do-gooders. The problem is the objects of their misplaced affection are the wrong people. Criminals belong behind bars where they were sent by a jury of their peers after being presented evidence of the crimes they committed. The trial process is not a one way street. The defendants are also represented. Too often the victims are below ground.

    President Trump commutes the 40 month sentence of one elderly Roger Stone and Fake News goes wacko.

    Gov Newsom releases 8000 felons and Fake News goes into cricket mode.

    What’s wrong here?

    Soros must have forgotten about El Dorado County. He’s already bought so many other D.A. and State AGs.

    And “It’s just” the way they planned it.

    As Lt.Gen Mike Flynn said recently: 2% of the impassioned can rule over the 98% apathetic if we are not careful.

    It’s not like we don’t see it coming.

      I “just” copied your “just” part and forwarded it to like minded thinkers and then some.

      Hope you don’t mind.

    Feel free to copy and paste the above.

    “Feel free” while you can.

    Allow your grey matter to consider this:

    China is funding the B(olsheviks-)L(osers-)M(arxists) and Auntie Fay

    China just had a Huge shipment of parts (more than ten thousand) for assault weapons “redirected” by Customs in Louisville. Headed for an address in FL.
    May 2020

    Gov Gav recently sent One Billion U.S. dollars to China, China, China allegedly for paper face masks. What is the cost of a paper face mask made by slaves in China?

    Gov Gav going to release at least 8000 criminals from State prisons in CA

    Consider that thousands of prisoners from U.S. penal institutions have been released into the wind since Feb 2020. (Yet General Mike Flynn and Roger Stone were going to be thrown in the slammer for non-crimes)

    What if the n’er-do-wells become soldiers in the above-mentioned T.organizations? We already know that they are armed with long guns.

    Connect the dots.

    Bonus: that guy they called Raz who was the king of CHAZ/CHOP in Seattle is allegedly a rapper/DJ. How come he has a personal fleet of autos including Tesla and BMW. How come he lives in a mansion? How come he was photographed unloading dozens of long guns from the trunk of his Tesla there at their occupied zone?
    Foreign control.

    If you care about preserving your Freedom, if you care about the sanctity of human life, please Pray to God for Mercy and Protection.

    Spiritual warfare. Good vs. Evil.

    Behold a Pale Horse.

    American taxpayers foot the bill for the salaries of extremists like Gavin Newsom, who don’t care who they put at risk as they favor criminals over law abiding citizens.

    WH Press Briefing today
    Presstitutes hitting hard on China bio-engineered novel corona virus
    and Arizona, among other things:

    . . . . .
    . . . . .Q Yes, Arizona has more new cases of coronavirus than any country in the world — more than the European Union as a whole. So isn’t, by that metric, the United States not doing as well as other countries in handling this?

    MS. MCENANY: No, because when you lead the world in testing, that means that you identify more cases.

    Q But hospitalizations are up. Deaths are starting to rise.

    MS. MCENANY: And I would note — well, you talk about deaths; I can give you that particular information, which Dr. Birx gave to me before running out here, which is: In Arizona, you have 17 cases per 1,000 population, and 0.3 deaths per population, which means our therapeutics are working and we’re in a better place today than we were before.

    Katherine.

    Q Kimberly Byrd, a schoolteacher in Arizona, died, however, when she as following all the rules. She wore a mask. She wore gloves. She was teaching summer school. She got it and died. Two other teachers got it and are ill. Her family, her husband, her daughter. I mean, how do you tell parents of schoolchildren that it’s safe to send their kids to back to school when something like that happens?

    MS. MCENANY: Well, I would point you to the words of the CDC director, who said children are not very affected by this and typically are not spreaders in this. But I would also point to the consequences of staying closed. We have to look at the holistic health of the child.

    And when you have, according to HHS, one-fifth of all child abuse cases being reported by teachers and educational staff, we cannot stay closed. When you have DC Family and Child Agency talking about a 62 percent decrease in abuse cases being reported, you cannot stay closed. . . . . .

    Absolutely true, SRAZ. People decry the old smoke filled rooms and political boss but there was usually no primary and the party settled on 1 candidate and if happened here one of the other Congressmen would have been Senator and we would end up with either 1 Republican and 1 Democrat Senator or maybe 2 Republicans, but certainly not the 2 Democrats we will have after election day.
