Iran’s Vice-President Catches a Case of the Coronavirus

Published

on

On Thursday, Iran’s health minister revealed that coronavirus cases spiked by 106 during the last 24 hours.

Iran’s death toll due to the outbreak is higher than any country with the exception of China, the country where the epidemic started.

The outbreak caused Iranian leaders to cancel Friday prayers in Tehran. Health ministry spokesman Kianush Jahanpur announced there were additional plans to place restrictions on sacred Islamic sites but the plan still “needs the approval of the president before being carried out”.

State news agency IRNA announced that Chinese citizens have been prohibited from entering the country. Other countries such as the U.S, Russia, South Korea and Australia have placed similar restrictions in an effort to halt the spread of coronavirus.

According to Michael Ryan, the World Health Organization’s Executive Director of Emergencies Programme, Iran’s 10 percent mortality rate, which is five times higher than China, is likely due to milder cases of the virus not being detected.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
