Covid Crime Wave Cometh

This will end badly.

The Wisconsin Department of Corrections has released nearly 1,600 inmates since March to help address the COVID-19 crisis, a DOC spokeswoman said Thursday.

The vast majority — 1,447 individuals released from March 2 to May 4 — are inmates who had been detained because they violated terms of their probation, parole or extended supervision while being monitored in the community, DOC spokeswoman Anna Neal said. The inmates were being held either in a county jail or DOC’s Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility.

In other words, the vast majority of people who wee released have already demonstrated that they will not abide by the law. They committed crimes. They were punished. And then they violated the terms of their punishment. Perhaps they were carrying a gun. Perhaps they went too close to their victim from the previous crime. Perhaps they were getting drunk or high. They were put back in jail a second time because they could not behave by the terms of their releases. What are the odds that these people will commit more crimes against innocent people instead of dying of Covid?

    People on probation or parole don’t get put back in jail for being drunk or high even though these are violations of parole. They get their parole revoked when they are arrested for new crimes they commit.

    Good to see these organizations are politicizing and trying to cash in on this “epidemic”.

    Liberal tolerance of evil… again

    And most of those thugs probably had not committed 1 crime in their life. Most probably an extensive criminal record.
    But hey, who cares if someone gets killed or injured.
    According to le Roi, it’s just a poor choice by the victims of the criminals.

    No mar, I have never said that. You are lying again. Does it make you feel more manly? More confident? Or just more dishonest?

    Le Roi,

    “Does it make you feel more manly?” Really???

    Another immature troll looking for attention. Just go away. Don’t bother responding, because you’re not worthy of attention. Just like your liberal troll buddies.

  8. Le Roi du Nord

    So g, what makes me a troll and not you or mar?  Or is that just another name you call folks you disagree with?

  9. Mar

    Le ROI, you own the quote but keep on lying.

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    What was the lie, mar?

  11. Mar

    That you denied saying what you said.
    People died because of their poor choices

    I didn’t say what you said I did. That is twice in a couple days when you have made false claims about what I said. Is it your inability to comprehend the written word, or a pathological need to be untruthful?
