A recent study released on May 14th indicates that just over a third of all county jail inmates in the entire nation were set free in the days and weeks that have transpired since the Corona Virus scare began.
“In the last two months, local governments across the U.S. have drastically reduced their jail populations to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The typical jail has reduced its population by more than 30%.”
Many jails have released as up to 50% or even more of their inmates. Some facilities in Oregon, Arkansas and New Jersey have even released between 57% and 63% of their inmates.
Who Expected This To End Any Differently?
But it goes beyond sex offenders. In Colorado, one inmate released from a Colorado prison –not a county jail, now –has been arrested on a charge of first degree murder.
Cornelius Haney was in Colorado’s State Prison for armed robbery but was set loose by Democrat Governor Jared Polis’ Corona Virus prison amnesty plan. (Just for the record, “prison amnesty” shouldn’t be a plan, no matter how bad things are getting.)
Haney stalked and murdered 21-year-old Heather Perry in a dark alleyway. Haney was found hiding in a hotel room two days later, with un-flushed baggies of cocaine in his hotel toilet. He’s now facing charges of illegal possession of a weapon, theft, second-degree kidnapping and first-degree murder.
Too late for Heather Perry’s family, of course.
How Dumb Do They Think We Are?
Firstly, law abiding citizens are being pressured or even ordered to wear masks. In some states, they’re required by authority of the executive orders that their tyrannical governors have passed. We’re looking at you, New York, New Mexico, and more! But if those masks do any good, why not just make the inmates wear them and keep them in prison?
Secondly, the amount of tax payer dollars it cost to locate, arrest, prosecute and process all of these inmates is absolutely staggering. How much worse that we’re going to have to pay to do this all over again in many cases. Will taxpayers get a refund or a price break since these violent and dangerous people were released by Governor’s edicts in most cases? We won’t hold our breath.
Thirdly, the next time you hear ANY leftist politician telling us that guns are dangerous, laugh in their face. These morons who released hundreds of thousands of convicted criminals back onto the streets without a minute’s thought.
They don’t care about safety, lowering crime or anything like that. They LIKE violent criminals on the street because it gives them leverage over gun owners! After all, they have to stop all this crime. Time to ban all guns!
Finally, with this many dangerous people on the streets, now is the time to be carrying for self-defense. You never know where these released convicts will be. It’s best to be prepared.
