Democrats are pushing an insane scheme that’s placing American citizens in danger.
They’re making the safety of criminals a top priority.
William Barr shot down a crazy Democrat demand that would put the public at risk.
There are now laws in place in many states to slap people who break their state’s stay at home orders with up to 12 months in prison.
Two pastors have been arrested for holding church services, one had only 10 people in the church building.
Bill de Blasio is threatening pastors that if they hold church services he’ll shut down their churches forever.
Bill de Blasio is quite concerned with the dangers that churches pose but he’s less concerned with the dangers of criminals.
He’s released child rapists into the public hotels because of concerns that they might catch the coronavirus.
Any person who has raped a child shouldn’t be released because of concerns for their health.
Protecting the victims and their public safety should come first.
Luckily, there isn’t a Democrat in the White House and William Barr isn’t going to let prisoners with histories of sexual or violent crimes out of jail because of coronavirus even though Democrats are demanding it from him.
According to the Daily Wire:
House Democrats on the Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Monday demanding that he try to “release as many prisoners as possible” due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus across the U.S.
Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and subcommittee chairwoman Karen Bass (D-CA) did not stop there with their demands as they told Barr to consider releasing prisoners regardless of the severity of the crimes for which they were convicted and regardless of the type of facility they were housed in.
“We call on you, in the most urgent of terms, to do the right thing and exercise [authority to modify sentences of prisoners who present ‘extraordinary and compelling reasons’] and immediately move to release medically-compromised, elderly, and pregnant prisoners in the custody of the [Bureau of Prisons],” the Democrats wrote. “In addition, we urge that you use every tool at your disposal to release as many prisoners as possible, to protect them from COVID-19.”
The two Democrats then stated that they had a problem with Barr’s memo that said that inmates at low and minimum security facilities should be prioritized and those who were convicted of serious offenses should not be released.
Democrats want to throw people who break the stay at home order in jail and want to free terrorists, rapists and murderers from prison.
That’s an insane position to take. Many federal prisoners are in jail for crimes that have cost other people their lives.
If criminals are released it will be an added burden on first responders and they have enough problems on their hands.
William Barr is exactly right, it is humane to try and protect low level criminals who are in high risk demographics, releasing murderers and rapists is an entirely different question. Protecting American citizens has to be the priority.
