Two men who were set free from jails in California due to the Wuhan virus outbreak were arrested again and accused of committing crimes not long after being released, according to law enforcement reports.
On April 22, 2020, Rocky Lee Music was charged with carjacking a driver on April 19, 2020 about 40 minutes after he was released from Santa Rita Jail in the San Francisco Bay Area, Alameda County authorities reported.
The Sheriff’s Office revealed that the jail has experienced 16 inmates test positive for the Wuhan virus.
On April 22, Owen Aguilar was charged with setting off nine fires in a timespan of less than a week after being set free from the Fresno County Jail.
Due an emergency order issued by the state Judicial Council, which cut bail to zero for individuals charged with low-level offenses, thousands of inmates have been released from county jails across California since April 13.
This order had the alleged aim of trying to quell the spread of the virus in congested prisons.
The judicial order will likely continue for 90 days after Governor Gavin Newsom deactivates a statewide stay-at-home order.
Many people have questioned the merits of such criminal justice reform policies and the kind of threats they pose to public order.
KTLA 5 reported another horror story of an individual released without bail and the subsequent crime he would commit:
Early this month, a man charged with a series of school burglaries in Fremont was released without bail, then rearrested and accused of another spate of crimes in Santa Clara County that included stealing 23 cars from a San Jose car rental agency with the help of three other people, police said. All four were arrested on April 16, booked and then released on zero bail, authorities said.
More and more Americas are becoming skeptical about the merits of so-called “criminal justice reform.”
Due to the perverse incentives it generates, criminal justice reform turns our streets into criminal safe spaces.
Even worse, a global pandemic is not keeping social radicals from trying to implement these policies.
So, Americans in certain parts of the country will have to be putting with potential increases in crime and economic uncertainty.
Not a good look.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
