The voice of sanity in a sea of crazy… Never gonna happen but its the thought that counts…
stop releasing criminals back onto the streets and keep them behind bars.
No….no, that won’t work. We need to understand the perp’s feelings, his history, his upbringing, what he had for breakfast this morning, if he felt insulted by someone who cut him off accidentally on the freeway, who he then took several shots at.
In fact, we should so trust the perps that we pat them on the back, give them their gun, a kiss on the forehead, and send them on their way with a couple of extra boxes of ammo.
Then they can feel good.
Only the “bad guys with guns”? Not the machete wielding, bat swinging, knife plunging, acid throwing run of the mill killers? Rapists, child traffickers, drug traffickers… we’re going to need a bigger boat!
I feel safer already!
These are some pretty smart people in DC, it takes 11 times to figure out that a psychopath is sorta dangerous to the general public.
What a F##kin novel idea! He really admitted, that they let psychopaths out on the streets 11 times before he thinks they may kill!
Gee, I have a radical idea as well, let’s defund all law and order and allow all the predators to run freely amongst the unarmed!
What could possibly go wrong? We may be the ones who are armed, but we’re the ones going to jail. Because Jack was just a dull boy and of course a “good boy”!
The lunatics really are running the asylum!
Aren’t Americans still locked up for that January 6th thing?
Laws do not protect people from violent criminals. Brotherly love keeps people from being violent criminals.
Sarcasm is good, I know where you are coming from brother @Scott361
If we would have done that in the first place it may have prevented them from doing the crime in the first place. I hope I am not being redundant.
Yup. This is the only way we pull out of this s**tshow of a nose dive we are in. But nobody on the extreme left or right is interested in this. We can’t legislate people into becoming “good”. Human nature has never worked that way. We always find clever ways around the law to do the things that our violent, tainted human nature leads us to do. We are seeing the result.
I know we can’t stop it but any attempt at stopping it slows it down. That is why I carry a gun.
Sometimes “brotherly love” involves stopping a perp from victimizing an innocent person!
Wait, did Chief Contee clear his statements with the leftist mayor who appointed him?
I have advocated keeping felons in jail for the full term of their sentence since I started working in court. When I worked in court nothing pissed me off more than to see a felon on probation get sentenced to more probation after committing FELONIES while on probation. I finally quit working in court because of that kind of b.s. OTOH, I have come to realize that part of our crime wave is due to the war on drugs. I have a very strong suspicion that many criminals are continued on probation because they are working as undercover informants for the cops. I ragged on a deputy DA about felons apprehended with loaded firearms who were still walking the streets. “Give me some names.” I gave the DDA the names and the number of previous convictions per the news articles. The next time I saw that DDA and asked about what happened I was told the DDA didn’t want to talk about it. That told me everything I needed to know about why they were still walking the streets.
Unfortunately what DA’s want is a high conviction rate. They don’t get any extra recognition if the perp goes to jail or not. SAd.
Sadly, too true.
Actually there is a vested interest whether recognized or not, in keeping criminals moving through the revolving doors. If 90% of the career criminals were serving mandatory life sentences, the criminal side of the court system would dry up. Narc police might actually have to go back on patrol; DDAs might get laid off. Judges might be compelled to hear boring civil cases. Probation departments would suffer severe cutbacks and mobs of ancillary support personnel would be laid off. The most ghastly effect might be that funding might actually be cut.
Make them serve their “full” sentence then reinstate 3 strikes for those fail to understand. And by the way, while serving time they earn their keep. My idea is all facilities have recycling centers, let the prisoners do the dirty work.
