In, I suppose what what you would call a leak from a GOP staffer, a list of 20 violent crimes that would be eligible for early release in the criminal justice reform bill Donald Trump has spoken favorably about is given. To be honest, they simply don’t make any sense. These seem like serious crimes to me. Why would they qualify the perpetrator for an early release? How does this help to reform our criminal justice system I wonder?
The ‘First Step Act’ is a new criminal justice reform bill being considered which allows inmates to earn early release for up to one-third of their sentences.
Twenty violent crimes and serious drug crimes are included in the program. Some of these are crimes like trafficking in cocaine and methamphetamine, strangling a spouse or intimate partner, street-gang felonies, assault with intent to commit rape or sexual abuse, and more. Early release? Really?
I guess, the other factor that makes me question this bills helpfulness to our citizenry is that CNN’s Communist commentator Van Jones endorsed it. Anything a leftist like Van Jones
endorses makes me immediately skeptical as to how it could help our nation.
In case you have forgotten, CNN’s commentator Van Jones (who called Trump’s victory a white lash) was kicked out of Obama’s Green Czar spot when his Communist background surfaced. Interestingly, the man ends up with a job as a commentator with who? CNN – sardonically called the Communist News Network. Two peas in a pod perhaps?
Here’s the list that Breitbart released on the 20 violent crimes that would qualify for early release:
Do these seem like crimes that should allow one to be considered for early release to you? I don’t know enough about the justice system to make a fully informed decision but attempting to engage in human smuggling, assaulting a policeman with a deadly weapon, stealing immigrant documents with the purpose of keeping an immigrant in slavery?
Not serious enough to merit a full sentence? Not the kind of people I would hang out with anyway.
Breitbart then notes that this list is followed by a series of questions from the GOP Senate for bill supporters to answer:
Fortunately, in my view anyway, the bill is not getting the same kind of endorsement from Donald Trump from all of the GOP. Understandably, there are some who question its efficacy.
I think Donald may want to re-read and re-think this one. The quick endorsement from Van Jones should have raised a red (and golden yellow) flag on this one for him.
