Texas Judges are Releasing Violent Criminals on Low Bonds Due to Wuhan Virus Concerns

Published

on

The current Wuhan Virus saga is witnessing various state governments and municipalities promoting policies that disrupt law and order.

While stores are being shut down left and right, criminals are being let out by activist judges who are promoting what the late Sam Francis describes as anarcho-tyranny — refusing “to control real criminals (that’s the anarchy) so we control the innocent (that’s the tyranny).”

In Texas, the court system is now handing out abnormally low bail bonds for various crimes.

Kelvin Hawthorne, 18, is accused of punching and choking his girlfriend on Monday. Normally, that kind of crime gets a $1000 bond and often times it’s a personal recognizance bond, which means release from jail on the promise to return.

On Tuesday, a judge granted Hawthorne a $100 bond. He paid $10, had to agree to bond conditions and was released from jail.

Craig Jones, 55, is accused of hitting and choking his wife. He has prior violent convictions. The state requested a $10,000 bond. On Tuesday, a magistrate made it much lower, granting a $300 bond.

Timothy Singleton, 21, also has prior convictions. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, after being accused of pulling a gun on his aunt’s neighbor. Singleton was granted a $500 bond, which means $50 would get him out of jail. Normally bond would be at least $20,000.

“Some of the cases I saw today, I almost fell off my chair in hysterical laughter,” opined Andy Kahan, director of victim services and advocacy at Crime Stoppers of Houston. “Ten dollar bonds? One hundred dollar bonds? In some cases, violent felons are getting bonds I’ve never seen in my 30 years in the criminal justice system.”

Prosecutors made arguments against many of the low bonds. According to KTRK, one judge said she’s trying to follow Governor Greg Abbott’s order by not granting these criminal suspects personal recognizance bonds. In other words, defendants wouldn’t have to post any cash to be released from jail.

Kahan said that he understands the possibility of low-risk defendants being released from jail for fear that the Wuhan virus will spread quickly. One inmate has contracted the virus, with two dozen tests still being confirmed and hundreds of other inmates being under observation. As many as 1,000 inmates, once they meet certain benchmarks, will be released in the next few days.

Tori McFarland, 23, who was accused of robbery with bodily injury, was released from jail on a $10 bond.

Kahan said he will be observing some of the people being released.

“That, to me, is a public safety crisis and we all know someone will pay the price,” he stated.

Texas has taken a sensible approach to gun rights by declaring gun stores “essential” businesses.

However, its activist judges want to subject law-abiding citizens to dangerous social experiments that benefit violent criminals, which is terrible for social cohesion.

Portland Experiences Over a 100% Increase in Shootings After Anti-Gun Violence Police Force is Disbanded

Published

on

In July of 2020, the city of Portland experienced 15 homicides.

According to Portland police, this is the most killings the city has experienced in one month in over three decades.

So far in 2020, 24 people have died due to homicides in Portland.

Oregon Live reported that the most recent killing took place on July 28, 2020 when a 34-year-old woman was stabbed at a Northeast Portland home after coming back from a vigil mourning the death of 27-year-old Tyrell Penney, who was murdered in a shooting on July 29.

In July 2020, there have been 63 shootings, while there was 28 in July 2019 per a Police Bureau report.

Although homicides, assaults, burglaries and vandalism have increased this year compared to 2019, total person-to-person and property crimes have plummeted compared to previous years, according to the bureau’s report.

Police Chief Chuck Lovell said on July 30 that he’s very worried about the uptick in violence and is shifting officers from patrol units to the detective division in order to shore up follow-up investigations.

He also explained that the bureau had to cut its Gun Violence Reduction Team in accordance to new policy changes the City Council ushered in. The team, which counted on 34 members, was disbanded on July 1 in response to budget cuts to police units that have allegedly targeted a disproportionate number of blacks during routine traffic stops.

Like many cities in the country, Portland is starting to embrace leftist radicalism on matters of law enforcement by considering moves to defund the police.

Oregon is already one of the more anti-gun states in the country, so lawful individuals in Portland don’t have many options at their disposal for self-defense. With police being gutted, regular citizens have even fewer options at their disposal for security.

This has obviously not registered with political elites and represents why many Americans will likely leave cities in masse in search of jurisdictions that actually bother to provide basic law enforcement infrastructure.
