A leftist nonprofit which bails suspected criminals out of jail after they have been charged with crimes posted bond for a domestic accuser, only for him to return home and kill his wife.
On April 9, Samuel Lee Scott was released from the St. Louis Justice Center after an organization called The Bail Project posted his $5000 bond, according to The St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Scott had been charged in connection with a domestic assault of his wife.
According to the report, within hours, Scott returned home and assaulted his wife again – except this time, he killed her.
“Police say Marcia Johnson, 54, was found near death in her St. Louis home April 9 suffering from severe head trauma. Johnson died from her injuries Sunday,” according to the report.
The Bail Project insists that America’s justice system disproportionately affects the poor.
“We provide immediate relief to those caught in this two-tier system of justice, restoring the presumption of innocence and bringing us closer towards an end to mass incarceration,” its website says.
The group exists to secure bond for those who cannot afford it, and says that “cash bail criminalizes poverty, devastating low-income communities and disproportionately affecting women and people of color.”
According to The Post-Dispatch, Scott had a lengthy criminal history.
“Scott had been sentenced to probation on a drug charge in 2003. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail for assault in 1998, and 236 for drug possession in 1997,” the report said.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
