Joe Biden is reaffirming his support for bail reform – the same type of “bail reform” that enabled Darrell Brooks to go free for $1,000 after crushing his fiancée with his automobile when he posted lower bond after being arrested.
Six people were killed when Brooks drove the same automobile to attack hundreds of people in Waukesha, Wisconsin, only a few weeks after the first event.
However, Biden believes that, notwithstanding the deaths of six individuals, one of them was an eight-year-old kid, there is nothing wrong with the strategy of terminating or drastically decreasing cash bail.
[Fox6] “Ending cash bail will not automatically put people charged with crimes on the streets,” a White House official told Fox News. “It just means that whether you get bail should be based on the threat you pose, and not how much money you have in your bank account.”
“There shouldn’t be a separate criminal justice system for wealthy Americans,” the official added.
“Ultimately though, this was a decision made by local courts,” the official said, referring to Milwaukee county prosecutors releasing Brooks on bail.
How is your experience with the policy thus far? At the end of the day, it was merely a little oversight. No one is implying that they released a mass murderer on reduced bond, are they? Oh…wait.
Mr. Brooks was a victim of domestic abuse in the past. Anyone might have guessed from one glimpse at his social media accounts how much of a risk this individual was to the community.
After all, if white serial murderers who are dangerous, violent, and homicidal are permitted to walk out of prison with ridiculously little bail, shouldn’t the same courtesy be extended to black violent, homicidal, and serial killers as well?
Don’t you just like the concept of equity?
[Wall Street Journal] Citizens have already responded at the ballot box. On Nov. 2, Minneapolis voters rejected an initiative to abolish the police force. Pro-policing candidates won mayoral races in New York City ( Eric Adams ), Seattle ( Bruce Harrell ) and Buffalo, N.Y. (incumbent Byron Brown, elected as a write-in candidate after losing the Democratic primary to a self-described socialist). On New York’s Long Island, two Republican district-attorney candidates beat Democrats in races that were referendums on state bail changes that let repeat offenders go free.
Left-wing Democrats are struggling to adjust. Longtime Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm conceded that Waukesha suspect Darrell Brooks —charged with killing six and injuring at least 40 others—had been let out on “inappropriately low” bail. He promised an internal review. The same Mr. Chisholm previously bragged that his office reduced prosecutions, incarcerations, and cash bails.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) addressed a harsh letter to prosecutors in New York’s five boroughs less than 48 hours after Darrell Brooks was arrested for vehicular assault. She demanded that cash bail be reduced significantly since the prison at Rikers Island was overcrowded.
They just do not comprehend the situation. When the White House can glibly assert that the really, truly, violent criminals will still be put behind bars after the tragedy in Waukesha, you know the connection between the Democratic Party’s leadership at all levels is total – from the top to the bottom.
Good luck to Democratic elected officials caught between public backlash over the growing breakdown of safety and progressives who want yet more change. As AOC and her compatriots complained about “unnecessary pretrial detention” in Waukesha’s wake, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan sat down with Axios to defend her support of the 2020 Breathe Act, which would end life sentences, kill the “three strikes” law, prohibit police use of Tasers, and fully empty federal prisons within 10 years. The White House felt compelled to explain Tuesday that President Biden “does not support abolishing prisons.”
Data from the October WSJ/NBC poll found that voters now trust Republicans over Democrats to handle crime by a 22-point margin. Add voter discontent over inflation and Covid, then re-evaluate some of those crucial 2022 swing state races. In Wisconsin a recent Marquette poll found that 69% of registered voters believe crime is rising nationally. Only 19% of independents approve of Mr. Biden, and 23% would vote to re-elect Mr. Evers. Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson is considered the GOP’s most vulnerable incumbent and hasn’t decided if he’s running. Democrats are making that decision easier.
The really good news for Republicans is that radical Democrats will not back down, will not change their ultimate goals, and even if they receive a thrashing in 2022, they will double and triple down by claiming that the party was not “pure” enough and that all of these dirty centrists must be expelled. Then there’s no doubt about it: triumph.
It’s a formula for catastrophe for the Democratic Party in 2024 and beyond.
