CNS News reported that a number of Democrats from the state of New York sent a letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo requesting that he release more prisons to protect the prison population from the Wuhan virus.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one of the most prominent Democrats signing on to the letter, which was also being pushed by leading Democrat Jerry Nadler.
In March, Cuomo relased 1,100 prisoners. The congressmen who sent the governor the letter want even larger numbers of prisoners released.
“In late March, you issued a directive to the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) to release up to 1,100 people who were incarcerated on technical parole violation holds in New York State jails,” the congressmen stated in their May 22 letter directed to the Cuomo.
“While an important step, this policy directive left too many people, including hundreds of people accused of parole violations, in local jails and did not touch the state prison population,” the letter read.
“We urge you now to exercise leadership and compassion to protect people living and working in jails and prisons,” the congressmen signing on to the letter declared.
“Releasing a significant number of incarcerated people and ensuring compliance with public health standards will surely save lives, both of those who are incarcerated and of others living in the community,” the congressmen added.
“As Governor of the state with the most reported cases of COVID-19 and as Vice Chair of the National Governors Association, you have the power not only to lead the Empire State in releasing substantial numbers of people from prison, but to show other governors that this laudable goal can be achieved.
“We urge you to take quick and decisive action on a much larger scale,” they concluded. “Ignoring this looming crisis promises to harm or kill so many more.”
The full text of the letter sent to Cuomo can be read here.
Some elected officials are working harder to serve the interests of criminals that law-abiding Americans who have been economically displaced because of harsh shutdowns related to the Wuhan virus.
This goes to show where the priorities of the modern-day Democrat Party lie.
Voters should not forget that in 2020.
White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt
The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.
And they did so because of white guilt.
VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.
I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.
Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.
President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.
“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.
Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”
None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.
Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.
America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
