Virginia Democrats Push to Make Assaulting Police Officers No Longer a Felony Offense in the State

This is what Democrats mean when they push for “criminal justice reform.”

Published

on

Democrats in the Virginia legislature are proposing a resolution that would change assaulting law enforcement from a felony into a misdemeanor.

‘The Senate Democratic Caucus has led and is continuing to conduct a series of community conversations to discuss these issues and we have heard from the public that now is not the time for studies or delay and that changes must be made during our Special Session,” the document claims, which is called, “Senate Democratic Caucus Police Reform and Criminal Justice Equity Plan.”

Currently, assaulting a law enforcement officer is considered a Class 6 Felony under the Virginia code punishable by a jail sentence of at least six months. One aspect of the comprehensive plan proposed by Democrats would make this type of offense into a misdemeanor.

The plan also states: “We will continue to take public input and work with stakeholders, the House of Delegates, state agencies, and Governor Ralph Northam to refine these measures over the next 60 days.”

House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn (D-Fairfax) has made it clear that it is her party’s legislative priority to weaken law enforcement and enable thugs to run wild in the streets.

“We must reimagine the role of policing in our commonwealth and recommend changes in the budget that divest resources from policing and reinvest those resources in public education, health, crisis intervention, and other services that are preventative rather than punitive in nature,” she said while addressing reporters.

Big League Politics has reported on how Virginia, under the stewardship of blackfaced Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam, is leading the way in enabling the far-left mob takeover of politics:

Governor Ralph Northam signed bills on April 11, 2020 that give municipalities in Virginia the power to remove or alter Confederate monuments.

The passage of this legislative package comes more than three years after the Charlottesville City Council voted to take down a statue of Robert E. Lee. The same city council subsequently took down a statue of Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

Charlottesville now has a new avenue for destroying American history via monument removal.

.“This is landmark legislation for Virginia,” declared Virginia delegate Sally Hudson, D-Charlottesville, on April 11. “Communities across the Commonwealth will finally have the freedom to reckon with our public history and decide for ourselves what to celebrate. There’s still so much work to be done, but this is a major milestone for all the advocates, activists, educators and community leaders who elevated this urgent call together.”

Senate Bill 183 and House Bill 1537, sponsored by Senator Mamie Locke, Delegate Delores McQuinn, respectively, repeals the state’s prohibition on the removal of Confederate war memorials.

As of July 1, municipalities will have the ability to remove, relocate or modify the monuments in their communities. Virginia is home to more than 220 public memorials to the Confederacy.

The Democrats are doing to Virginia what they would do to all of America if they reclaim the White House in November.

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote

Bribery?

Published

on

Billionaire and former New York City Mayor has raised $16 million dollars to pay off outstanding fines of Black and Hispanic felons in Florida, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday. Florida restricts the voting rights of convicted criminals until they’ve paid off fines levied for their crimes by the criminal justice system.

It appears that Bloomberg’s fine repayment initative was only available to Black and Hispanic felons. Axios reported that to qualify for Bloomberg’s money, applicants had to have outstanding fines of less than $1,500, be already registered to vote, and to be Black or Latino.

White felons need not apply.

The program has reportedly already cleared the fines of 32,000 felons in the state, enabling them to vote in the election. It erases the punitive aspect of the court system’s fines, which were levied in the first place in order to require convicted criminals to personally make amends for their actions.

Bloomberg’s felon bailout giveaway is legally questionable, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has requested that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody investigate what he’s doing. If he’s paying felons to vote for any one specific candidate, Bloomberg is in violation of campaign finance rules and could be liable to serve jail time .

The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson when asked about the fine repayment initiative. But it doesn’t seem as if the failed Democratic primary candidate is willing to buy back the voting rights of individuals who might be less inclined to vote for Joe Biden in November.

Bloomberg already tried and failed to buy the nomination in the Democratic primary, and now he’s trying to buy the crucial swing state of Florida for Joe Biden. Corrupt oligarchs should not be allowed to abuse the political system with impunity.
