Counties in California are Releasing Hundreds of Criminals Back On the Streets
On March 17, 2020, a Sacramento County judge authorized the Sheriff’s Office to release prisoners who have 30 days or less left in their sentences.
Abbie VanSickle, a staff writer at The Marshall Project, tweeted, “BREAKING: Sacramento County judge authorizes the Sheriff’s Office to release jail inmates with 30 days or less remaining in their sentences. Ordered signed today and in effect until May 30. Includes misdemeanors and felonies. @MarshallProj”

CBS13 reported that sheriff’s still have the power to not release prisoners.
In the Sacramento County Jail, visitation has been suspended until the end of the month in order to promote public health.
“We’re helping the virus, in fact, if we’re keeping these people in these disgusting conditions,” said Deion Seruelo.
A few people see the validity in early release.
“I don’t have a problem with it, it makes sense. If they’re trying to make room, prevent overcrowding,” stated Colin Waters.
According to the LA Times, the Los Angeles County Sheriff has already started releasing inmates in an attempt to stop the Wuhan virus from spreading. The department is also reducing the number of people they plan on taking into custody.
If Sacramento County fully follows through with this, people hope the prisoners have somewhere to stay at.
“I think if they have homes that should definitely be a factor. I think if they don’t have homes than where would they go?“ said Jessica Jarrety.
The radical Left is fully taking advantage of this crisis to unleash their radical, anarcho-tyrannical experiments on the rest of the populace.
Law-abiding citizens will end up becoming the principal victims of such policies as political elites pontificate about “restorative” justice, while everyday people get terrorized by people who should not be back on the streets.
