    Philadelphia Ends Jail for ‘Non-Violent’ Criminals Because of Coronavirus Crisis

    JOHN BINDER 17 Mar 2020

    The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Police Department is implementing a new policy where accused criminals deemed “non-violent” will be quickly released after their arrests in light of the coronavirus crisis.

    Police officials confirmed to CBS Philadelphia that accused criminals charged with non-violent crimes will be processed and released so as not to fill up city jails. Police officials said those accused criminals considered to be violent will not be released.

    Police officials said in a statement:

    It should be noted that if a police officer believes that releasing an individual would pose a threat to public safety, the officer will notify a supervisor, who will review the totality of the circumstances, and in the interest of public safety, utilize discretion in determining the appropriate course of action.

    Non-violent criminals will be re-arrested later in the year.

    Police officials confirmed the authenticity of an internal memo that states that those arrested for crimes like burglary, auto theft, vandalism, prostitution, and theft will not be held in jail. Instead, they will be released back into the general public after their arrest.

    The new arresting procedure comes as crime is up in Philadelphia, especially in categories deemed “non-violent” offenses but that still leave victims in their wake.

    For instance, compared to this time last year, retail theft in Philadelphia is up 64 percent. Likewise, commercial burglary has increased eight percent, motor vehicle tag theft is up 26 percent, theft from a person is up 16 percent, theft is up 14 percent, and auto theft is up 20 percent.

    There are at least 18 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Philadelphia.

    If you're still handing around in Philadelphia later in the year that's on you.

    Same as what has been happening in the urban areas of California. Prepare for a sharp increase in these “non-violent” crimes.

    Ron Paul alluded to this in today’s Liberty Report. And he basically said that next is that theft will not be a crime. The communists can steal at will, no penalty (from government). They need it, you have it, they deserve it. While that may be called hyperbole, the net effect is the same. It’s what has happened in places like San Francisco and San Jose already.

    “Someone broke into your house and stole your TV and computer? Did they have a gun? No? Ok, nothing for us to do. Call your insurance company.”

    Perhaps 2nd A will be become more accepted.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Meanwhile, the Mayor of Chicago says she will have you taken into custody for exercising outdoors: https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2020/03...-be-shut-down/

    So if you steal a bike you won't be arrested. But if you ride that stolen bike (or any bike) outdoors you will be put in jail.

    America is gone folks.
