Zendo Deb looks at how well the latest “stroke of genius” by the left is working…………
I thought that the point of the Criminal Justice System was supposed to be the protection of Society. It is starting to look like a jobs program for lawyers. Ex-boyfriend out on bond for shooting woman 6 times returned to home and killed her, prosecutors say. Hammond mayor says justice system failed her..
In November he shot her 6 times and was arrested for attempted murder. Later in November he was released on bail.
Last Thursday, he came back and shot her 5 times, killing her.
How’s that bail reform working out? How long before you blame the gun? No blame for the criminal? No blame for the judge? If it was anyone but a .gov bureaucrat making these awful decisions you could charge them with depraved indifference. This outcome was completely predictable, and so “The System” has to have some responsibility. There will be no accountability. (They work for the government.)
On Facebook, [Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr.] on Friday criticized Goforth’s release in the November case, saying the justice system “failed” Williams. Lake Superior Magistrate Natalie Bokota, assigned to the case, approved a request on Dec. 11, allowing him to continue living in Missouri, records show.
And this judge doesn’t appear to have a good record vis a vie recidivism.
Again, real people are the ones hurt by the idiocy that is “bail reform”. Even Mayor de Blasio admits his attempt to substitute “social” justice for actual justice has been a catastrophe.
Of course, the results, as bad as they are, will never deter the left from implementing such disastrous programs, because the left worships intentions over results
