A Colorado convict who was freed from prison while serving a seven-year sentence for armed robbery has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of a Denver woman named Heather Perry.
Perry’s body was found in an alleyway. Police used surveillance camera footage to track Cornelius Haney to the crime scene. Haney had only been out of the state correctional system for less than a month before being arrested and charged with the crime. He’s also facing charges of illegal possession of a weapon, theft, and second-degree kidnapping.
Colorado Democratic Governor Jared Polis issued a statement on Perry’s release, admitting that the man was freed from the state correctional system as a result of his coronavirus jailbreak executive order, but making an excuse out of his supposedly imminent release from prison through the state parole system.
“Mr. Haney was released due to special needs parole criteria. When looking at special needs parole criteria, the Department of Corrections’ medical staff reviews offenders for risk factors related to COVID… Haney had a mandatory release date of 8-22-2020 and would have been required to be released at that time regardless of the Parole Board decision.”
Haney isn’t the first criminal to utilize his coronavirus jailbreak opportunity to allegedly commit crimes. A California sex offender who was released from the Orange County jail system despite a warning from a prosecutor that he was a “high risk” offender was busted for exposing himself to staff members at a parole system. There are even more risky sex offenders who have been released in the county.
At this point, there have been enough jailbreaks from state and county officials in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The corrections system is essential to keep duly tried and convicted criminals separated from the public, and it’s time that authorities refocus upon its purpose.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
