    COVID Craziness: Lockdowns for Us but Not 67K Criminals — Now Killing Americans

    Lock down those who are supposed to be free — and free those supposed to be locked up. That’s the formula being applied, and it’s leading to rising crime, suffering innocents, and murder.

    Americans have been arrested for opening their hair salon, working out in a gym, and sitting alone in a lifeguard chair and reading, as officials enforce rules such as you can go to the beach but will be forcibly yanked from the ocean if you swim (huh?!). Apparently, jail-borne Wuhan coronavirus spares the puerilely persecuted but, having a better moral sense than many politicians, not those rightly punished.

    Many might thus quip, anyway, pondering how governors have released 67,000 criminals — many dangerous — under the pretext of wanting to protect them and prison workers from COVID-19.

    If only they thought about protecting the public, 21-year-old Colorado woman Heather Perry would still be alive today. The man accused of murdering her on May 9, Cornelius Haney (video below), was released over virus concerns less than a month before her death. You can thank Governor Jared Polis (D-Colo.) for that.

    Joseph Edward Williams wasted no time, though. He allegedly murdered a 45-year-old Florida man (video below) the very day after his March 19 virus-inspired release. That said, who saw this coming? Williams had only been arrested 35 times previously, after all.

    Oh, for this one you can thank Chief Judge Ronald Ficarrotta, who authorized the releases; and Hillsborough County sheriff Chad Chronister, who did the releasing — and who, demonstrating his priorities, had also arrested a pastor for holding church services.

    Then there’s Hawaiian Daniel Pookela Baang. Even though his state has only 17 Wuhan virus deaths and no confirmed cases in its jails, he was released in April. Two weeks later, he was charged with stabbing 45-year-old Harvey Hannah to death (video below). Baang was also released by a judge, whose name I haven’t been able to ascertain.

    The above is just a sampling, too. As Daniel Horowitz writes at Conservative Review:

    The recidivism of these people is unbelievable [yes, that’s why they were in prison!]. According to the New York Post, out of the 276 shooting incidents in New York City so far this year, 19 percent of suspected or arrested gunmen having been released this year. Also, 13% of the incidents’ more than 315 victims were also out on parole. Thus, we have created a shooting war among released criminals. Ironically, they are much more likely to die from homicide than from the virus.

    Overall, this year, shootings are up 21% in the city and break-ins have jumped 38%. As of just the first few weeks of the epidemic, the city released more than 1,500 criminals.

    Horowitz points out, however, that it isn’t just fellow criminals but also innocents being victimized by these corona criminals, as the aforementioned examples evidence. He provides numerous other examples as well.

    Hence we have more evidence of how the virus “cure” is worse than the disease. In fact, as “of 2018, at 23.2 victimizations per 1,000 persons, anyone outside a nursing home is several hundred times more likely to be victimized by a violent crime than to die of coronavirus,” Horowitz also tells us.

    “With the release of so many more criminals since 2018, that risk has likely grown exponentially,” he continues. “Has anyone asked Dr. Fauci to simulate a model of these forgotten COVID-19 deaths?”

    Note here that just “a few hundred deaths have been recorded out of a population of 2.2 million inmates, lower than that of the general population,” Horowitz further informs. Moreover, he points out that most of the virus-infected convicts were asymptomatic and now are, presumably, immune. This isn’t surprising since they’re generally young and healthy (the elderly are most imperiled).

    In fact, many inmates themselves aren’t too worried. Just consider the video below of California convicts trying to purposely infect themselves with the Wuhan virus in the hopes of being released.

    Yet despite efforts such as the above, isn’t keeping convicts “quarantined” in prison the most effective way of preventing their infection? It’s not rocket science: Test the prisoners; separate out, isolate, and treat the sick; test any new convicts before incarceration; eliminate visitation during the outbreak; and test staff every two weeks. Voila!

    And outside prison walls? Criminals aren’t exactly paragons of responsibility; they won’t likely “socially distance and wash ... hands as health officials direct, and use a mask — for anything other than a crime tool to protect against identification,” as American Thinker put it last month.

    That leftists defy this common sense hints at an agenda, as American Thinker explained: “The far left, including the Soros front groups, Angela Davis, Chesa Boudin, and other extremists, have long advocated for getting rid of prisons and letting their denizens all out to prey upon us, under the tangled rubric of ‘social justice,’ a social justice that always finds itself devoid of [just] laws.”

    The pandemic provides a perfect pretext to effect this mayhem. What’s the ultimate goal? Some would say attainment of power. After all, since people will generally sacrifice liberty for security, you can maximize the removal of liberty by first maximizing the removal of security. Yet there’s another factor, a deeper one rarely explained.

    Devout leftists maintain that the “real” causes of crime are unaddressed deeper issues such as “systemic racism” and “white supremacy.” And I believe that many of these social engineers are thinking on some level, “You won’t take our sage counsel and implement our progressive prescriptions? Then you’re going to have to endure these problems until you eliminate them our way.”

    It also may be a pleasing type of retribution for them. Remember that no one likes having his plans thwarted, and leftists believe it’s the “deplorable” resistance throwing a monkey wrench into theirs. Intensely angry about this, the attitude likely is, “If you won’t listen, you’ll just have to suffer till you toe the line!”

    Whatever the thinking, it’s just another example of why the worst crimes being visited upon the American people are the lockdowns themselves. In fact, far more dangerous than 10 Joseph Edward Williamses on the street is one Gretchen Whitmer in office.

    There's an easy way to deal with the few violent criminals that are being released. Trump should use his emergency "war" power's act and declare Constitutional Carry the law of the land, since he already deemed gun stores "essential businesses."

    Pro 2nd Amendment Sheriffs could then deputize all law abiding citizens as well.

    Problem solved.

    I bet 99% of the prisoners released didn't belong there in the first place.

    Like this Amish farmer who was just released and was serving 6 year sentence for selling non-FDA approved salves and ointments.

    Horowitz: 67K criminals released so far under coronavirus jailbreak. And crime keeps rising

    https://www.conservativereview.com/n...-keeps-rising/

    Daniel Horowitz · May 22, 2020

    Is this the country for which our soldiers sacrificed their lives?

    By now, most Americans are familiar with the shocking stories of everyday Americans getting arrested for simply opening businesses that don’t even attract large crowds. However, fewer are aware of the other side of this dystopian and tyrannical equation. As salt-of-the-earth small business owners are being marched into the jails, career dangerous criminals are being marched out of the jails and prisons in astounding numbers.

    According to UCLA, which is tracking this data, 67,000 criminals have been released throughout the 50 states. The majority of the criminals, 43,000 of them, have been released from the nation’s jails, and 24,356 were released from prisons.

    Consequently, given that we know the shocking degree of recidivism even among criminals more carefully selected for release, we can add victims of crime due to coronavirus jailbreak as the latest long-term death toll from COVID-19, or at least from the governmental reaction to it.

    Remember, this has nothing to do with fear of prisoners dying of coronavirus. Just a few hundred deaths have been recorded out of a population of 2.2 million inmates, lower than that of the general population. In most prisons, the overwhelming majority of those who got the virus have been asymptomatic and are now already immune and have been for quite some time. Thus, there is no reason to release large numbers of convicted criminals, most of whom are young and healthy.

    This has everything to do with accelerating an already dangerous de-incarceration movement, which is why you shouldn’t hold your breath and wait for them to be re-apprehended after the virus burns out.

    According to a brand-new report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in 2018, the combined federal and state incarceration rate in prisons had already dropped to the lowest levels since 1996. Over the past year and half since that data collection, that decline has likely accelerated given the recent sweeping jailbreak policies enacted in so many states.

    Despite the common complaint of over-incarceration among African-Americans, the incarceration rate fell 28 percent just in the 10 years from 2008-2018. That is for prisons. In the nation’s jails, the incarceration rate has plummeted so steeply that, for black residents, it was lower in 2018 than at any time since 1990. Again, that was before some of the recent law changes abolishing or limiting bail in many states and counties.

    As such, those who had remained in prison as of early this year were the worst of the worst.

    Consider the insanity of Hawaii. The state has released roughly 38% of the state’s entire jail population. This is a state where there are just 17 COVID-19 deaths overall and no confirmed cases in jails. Yet they emptied them of criminals. In early May, a 20-year-old Hawaiian was arrested for murder just two weeks after being released out of fear of the virus! At the same time, the state has the strictest lockdown in the nation. One man was arrested for posting photos of himself at the beach after the fact!

    As I’ve noted throughout this crisis, so many of these criminals are extremely dangerous and have dozens of arrests on their rap sheets, yet they are deemed eligible for release if the last crime for which they are serving time is supposedly “low-level.” In the dystopian thinking of these politicians, that entitles them to a lower risk of dying of the coronavirus than the rest of the country. Yet, at the same time, they have zero problem placing the ultimate low-level “criminals,” aka you and me, in jail with no concern that we may catch the virus there.

    The recidivism of these people is unbelievable. According to the New York Post, out of the 276 shooting incidents in New York City so far this year, 19 percent of suspected or arrested gunmen having been released this year. Also, 13% of the incidents’ more than 315 victims were also out on parole. Thus, we have created a shooting war among released criminals. Ironically, they are much more likely to die from homicide than from the virus.

    Overall, this year, shootings are up 21% in the city and break-ins have jumped 38%. As of just the first few weeks of the epidemic, the city released more than 1,500 criminals.

    It’s not just other criminals who are victims of those released from prison. In Washington State, a career felon who was just released was arrested after allegedly attacking a woman on a hiking trail and nearly choking her to death. A man convicted of armed robbery was released early in Denver and is now accused of murdering a young woman less than a month after his coronavirus jailbreak.

    As of 2018, at 23.2 victimizations per 1,000 persons, anyone outside a nursing home is several hundred times more likely to be victimized by a violent crime than to die of coronavirus. With the release of so many more criminals since 2018, that risk has likely grown exponentially. Has anyone asked Dr. Fauci to simulate a model of these forgotten COVID-19 deaths?

    Between releasing criminals while arresting small business owners and locking down the healthy while downright infecting nursing homes with 4,300 sick patients sent back from hospitals, this is no longer the country for which our soldiers made the ultimate sacrifice. For the sake of their memory, it’s time to take back our republic this Memorial Day.

    My thoughts exactly!

    Most were probably caught with such terrible crimes as growing pot or, heaven forbid, selling unpasteurized milk.

    Ed Brown couldn't get an early release either.

    But of the three noted in the OP, all three had numerous prior convictions of violent crimes.

    I'm all for non prosecution of malum prohibitum edicts.

    But that's not what these guys were in for.
