Tampa, F.L. – Across the country, inmates are being released due to concerns over coronavirus spread. New York and California made headlines early as they decided to release inmates. Other states have followed suit. But now the public is facing the price.
On Tuesday, a Florida inmate, released over coronavirus concerns, returned to jail charged with murder. The inmate had been charged just weeks before with possession of drug paraphernalia and heroin. By all counts, he was considered to be low risk, but that’s not the case now.
Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister Said that law enforcement is attempting to balance public health and with public safety. But is that really true? These individuals that were released from prison were criminals. They broke the law and were jailed for a reason. Does anyone really believe that allowing criminals on the street is safe?
Thinking this is safe is asinine. But that’s exactly what the Democrats would have you believe. They have long advocated for criminal justice reform that allows these criminals back on the streets. That is not acceptable.
Other organizations have advocated for the same. The ACLU has long been an advocate of criminal justice reform. Recently, they demanded the release of these “non-violent” individuals from jails. As the media tries to pain blood on the hands of Trump, this is blood on the hands of Democrats and the ACLU.
Government leaders are allowing criminals to run free on the streets, but everyday Americans are being punished. Protestors are being arrested and churchgoers are threatened with legal action. Both are rights that the US Constitution protects, but if you commit a crime it’s not a big deal.
Here’s an example of why it is a big deal. Someone lost their life because of this decision to release inmates. It was ridiculous and should have never happened. It also highlights the big need for Americans to take their personal safety seriously.
As previously reported, gun and ammunition sales are as high as ever. First-time gun buyers are seeking protection seeing a potential break down in society. Across the country, protests are happening against the stay orders. Americans are growing restless.
If you are under a stay order, now is a great time to take look into a gun safety course. In most states, gun stores are considered essential. It is never a bad time to prepare to protect your family. Especially given leadership around the country are willing to risk your life by releasing these criminals.
