Democrat controlled cities across the country have enacted bail reform in the name of social justice.
This means that criminals, even violent ones, are often released days or even hours after being arrested for their crimes.
This is leading to a rise in crime in many of these cities. Who could have predicted such a thing would happen?
Just the News reports:
Democratic cities that enacted bail reform see rise in crime, repeat offenses
Democratic-run cities that have implemented bail reform have seen a rise in criminal activity amid the release of criminals with multiple offenses who went on to commit additional crimes following their releases.
ust five days before allegedly plowing a red SUV through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisc., killing six, the suspected attacker, who had a long criminal history, had been released on $1,000 bail in a case in which he was accused of running a woman over in his car. The low bail for the suspect — even the Milwaukee County DA has since acknowledged it was “inappropriately low” — has thrust bail reform back to the forefront of the national conversation.
In Los Angeles, District Attorney George Gascon eliminated cash bail altogether last year. Since then, murders and shootings in the city have risen sharply year-over-year, with homicides rising 26% in the first six months of the year.
In New York City, criminals are being put back on the streets after the state government enacted bail reform, which eliminated bail altogether for many crimes. Crime, particularly the murder rate, continues to hit record levels in the city compared to past years.
The New York Police Department has argued that the lack of cash bail for repeat offenders was part of the reason criminal activity was on the rise.
The amazing thing is that Democrats on the far left, like AOC, are still pushing this.
The day after a massacre occurred in Wisconsin by a violent criminal released under bail reform policies, AOC posts this. https://t.co/JkkxBiDXi4

It’s going to take a few election cycles and lots of Democrat losses to fix this problem.
