The Democratic governor of California, approved the release in August of about 8,000 prisoners, some of them convicted of serious crimes, thus possibly increasing the crime rate in the state.
Newson’s arguments for releasing the inmates include the risk of them contracting the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus, and the decrease in their sentences, according to the Los Angeles Times of July 10.
In addition, pressure from state legislators, prisoner advocates, and a federal judge has influenced the premature release of prisoners.
Prison officials said that through other measures to “decompress” California’s prison system during the pandemic they had already released about 10,000 prisoners.
For the president of the California District Attorneys Association, Vern Pierson, the situation is “concerning” for public safety, and he does not see a clear process the prison system will use to define who will be released.
“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 warned.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva also announced the release of 4,276 prisoners, under the same rationale, that is, trying to prevent infection by the CCP virus, on April 14.
In addition, in January, New York City was scheduled to release about 880 prisoners convicted of second-degree manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, sex crimes against children, third-degree assault, promoting the sexual performance of a child, threats of terrorism, and other charges, according to Breitbart News.
These decisions show the tendency of Democrats to release prisoners, which increases the risks faced by citizens.
Crime has risen sharply in the wake of the riots generated by the death of African American Michael Flynn.
In the face of the need for control, the Democrats are pushing to defund police departments and other “systems of oppression,” as Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) calls them.
The murder of 600 Americans in six Democratic-ruled cities in a period of only six weeks would make them guilty, according to writer and media director Kevin McCullough in one of his articles in Townhall on July 5.
“The most significant threat to our nation right now is the Democrats who are voting to eliminate enforcement and who are, by extension, responsible for the largest and most significant increase in loss of life,” McCullough warns.
