A new study reveals that almost a third of county jail inmates have been set free from the facilities during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Prison Policy Initiative study has determined that 32% of inmates at county jails have been set free.
“In the last two months, local governments across the U.S. have drastically reduced their jail populations to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The typical jail has reduced its population by more than 30%.”
Many jails have released up to half of their inmates, with facilities in Oregon, Arkansas and New Jersey releasing between 57% and 63% of their jail inmates.
The release of inmates on coronavirus safety concerns is a jailbreak of arguably unprecedented proportions. The amnesties have already resulted in public safety repercussions, with at least one Orange County prosecutor being vindicated after warning over the release of inmates who he described as “high risk” sex offenders.
Rudy Magdoleno, a repeat felony convict released from an Orange County Jail, was arrested for exposing himself to staff members at a parole center last month. District Attorney Todd Spitzer had warned that Magdoleno was a dangerous offender who shouldn’t have been released.
At least one inmate released from a Colorado prison(as opposed to a jail) was rearrested for first degree murder last week. Cornelius Haney, who was serving time for armed robbery, was set free by Colorado Democratic Governor Jared Polis’ coronavirus prison amnesty. The governor has gone on to make the excuse that Haney’s release would’ve been assured by a parole board anyway.
The prison and jail systems exist for a reason, and the dubious release of large populations of convicted criminals undermines the purpose that the corrections system serves for society. With public infrastructure slowly adjusting to accommodating the stresses of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s time to end the dangerous and questionable jailbreaks.
Man Who Brutally Assaulted Michigan Nursing Home Resident Arrested, Charged, and Named
The brute’s name is Jayden Hayden.
The perpetrator of a horrific taped assault at a patient at a Michigan nursing home has been arrested, charged, and finally named.
Detroit Police arrested 20-year old Jayden Hayden of Ypsilanti, Michigan on Sunday morning. Hayden is being charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, larceny in a building and two counts of financial transaction device, steal/retain without consent.
The financial crimes relate to Hayden allegedly stealing the credit cards of 75-year old Norman Bledsoe.
The conscience of the nation had been shocked when video of Hayden brutally assaulting the senior citizen in a nursing home bedroom went viral. President Trump himself expressed his shock at the callous footage, in which Hayden repeatedly punched and beat the U.S. Army veteran.

Hayden has apparently uploaded videos online of other despicable assaults against senior citizens.
Detroit Prosecutor Kym Worthy expressed her resolve to hold Hayden criminally accountable for the heinous crime.
“The alleged actions of this defendant are truly and uniquely disturbing. We must be able to trust our loved ones in specialty care facilities. I truly hope that the facts of this care are one of a kind.” Hayden was arraigned in court on Sunday morning.
New facts of the case seem to suggest that Hayden himself was a short-term resident of the Westwood Nursing Center, as opposed to an employee of the facility, which some had speculated.
Hayden seems to express racist and anti-white beliefs in some of his social media uploads, stating that he believes that “black people are meant to rule the earth.” However, it doesn’t appear as if local authorities are treating the savage, cowardly assault as a hate crime at this point.
