Lax sentencing, “bail reform” and other social justice fails. Zendo Deb takes a peek
First up – bail reform. Man charged with robbing 12-year-old & burglarizing home while free on 3 recognizance bonds AND court supervision.
So far this year, [the miscreant in question has] been charged with felony burglary, released on a recognizance bond, charged with criminal damage to property and assault, released on another recognizance bond, charged with battery, released on a third recognizance bond, charged with battery and obstruction of identification, released on a fourth recognizance bond, and pleaded guilty to battery in exchange for a sentence of six months court supervision. And that was all before the Fourth of July.
Then there is an actual lack of sentencing. Court update: Prolific bike thief pleads guilty to 12 burglaries; Another man gets 3 years for slashing teen’s throat.
Let’s concentrate on the throat-slashing, though the other examples (more than the two listed in the headline) are also good examples.
A convicted felon who was accused of slashing a 17-year-old boy’s throat because the teen and his girlfriend were “taking up too much sidewalk” has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Chevazz Campbell, the victim, and a 16-year-old girl were walking on the 400 block of West Roosevelt last October when Campbell allegedly became enraged that the teens were walking side-by-side. After insisting that the couple was taking up too much space on the sidewalk, Campbell pulled out a box cutter and cut the boy’s throat, prosecutors said.
Three aggravated battery charges were condensed into one by the judge. He was sentenced to three years, and given credit for time served (230+ days) They don’t say when he will be available for parole, but in less than a year I’m guessing.
In other words leftism is at work in many of the most violent cities, and guess which party runs these cities, go on, guess. Yes it does start with a D!
NRA? No! Gun owners? No! Those who defend the right to own firearms? No!
Activist Philly DA who loves turning out violent felons? YEP!! The Other McCain explains
Two years ago, left-wing billionaire George Soros wrote a $1.45 million check to Larry Krasner’s campaign for district attorney of Philadelphia. This is a gigantic sum to spend on a local election, and enabled Krasner to defeat six rivals in the 2017 Democrat primary, then coast to a landslide victory in the general election. Krasner ran as the anti-police candidate, and has made it his official policy to turn dangerous criminals loose on the streets of Philadelphia. One of the beneficiaries of Krasner’s policies, Maurice Hill, had an extensive criminal record — drug charges, aggravated assault, perjury, fleeing and eluding, escape and weapons offenses — before he engaged in a shootout Wednesday in North Philadelphia that wounded six cops. This incident resulted in a statement from Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney William McSwain:
What I witnessed last night was true heroism by the Philadelphia police. But the crisis was precipitated by a stunning disrespect for law enforcement — a disrespect so flagrant and so reckless that the suspect immediately opened fire on every single officer within shooting distance. Only by the grace of God did they survive.
Where does such disrespect come from?
There is a new culture of disrespect for law enforcement in this City that is promoted and championed by District Attorney Larry Krasner — and I am fed up with it.
It started with chants at the DA’s victory party — chants of “F*** the police” and “No good cops in a racist system.”
We’ve now endured over a year and a half of the worst kinds of slander against law enforcement — the DA routinely calls police and prosecutors corrupt and racist, even “war criminals” that he compares to Nazis.
This vile rhetoric puts our police in danger. It disgraces the Office of the District Attorney. And it harms the good people in the City of Philadelphia and rewards the wicked.
The alleged shooter last night, Maurice Hill, is a previously convicted felon with a long rap sheet. We have plenty of criminal laws in this City — but what we don’t have is robust enforcement by the District Attorney. Instead, among other things, we have diversionary programs for gun offenses, the routine downgrading of charges for violent crime, and entire sections of the criminal code that are ignored.
The criminal laws in this City — and especially the existing gun laws and drug laws — should be aggressively enforced in order to protect the public and the police. My Office is doing all that we can. We have prosecuted 70% more violent crime cases this year than we did last year, in response to the District Attorney’s lawlessness. But it is now time for the District Attorney and his enablers to stop making excuses for criminals. It is time for accountability. It is time to support law enforcement and to put the good people of this City first.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office, in conjunction with the Philadelphia police and our federal partners, is investigating the horrible events of last night and we are considering all options at our disposal. We will do everything that we can to support our brothers and sisters in the Philadelphia Police Department and ensure justice is done.
To the officers involved last night — those who were wounded and those who rushed to defend them — and to their families, I say thank you. The whole City thanks you. We owe you more than we can ever repay.
Note please that NPE of this is even being mentioned by the ledia, or the Cult of Gun Control. All they can do is chant “sensible gun laws” while drooling on themselves
Not that shocking considering he likely knew that he was finished
Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier who was indicted on sex trafficking charges, died Friday night by suicide in his Manhattan jail cell, according to multiple reports.
Law enforcement officials told ABC News that Epstein, 66, died by suicide in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center overnight, though the exact timing and circumstances surrounding his death were not immediately clear.
Sorry, but some crimes need to be punished so that the perpetrator NEVER gets out to do it again
The feeble old man walking is usually not someone you have to worry about day-to-day. The young guy who is looking for trouble might be another matter, but not the old man.
That line of thinking impacted a judge’s decision to parole a convicted murderer. He was old and, therefore, harmless.
Unfortunately, he wasn’t.
A man who served decades in prison for stabbing his wife 14 times in front of her daughter was convicted Wednesday in a nearly identical crime — stabbing a woman at least 11 times while her twin children watched.
Albert Flick, 77, who was previously deemed too old to be a threat by a judge, was convicted in the 2018 death of Kimberly Dobbie. Jurors deliberated less than an hour before reaching its guilty verdict.
Both the attack, which was in front of a laundromat in broad daylight, and Flick’s purchase two days earlier of two knives, were caught on surveillance video.
Sick old bastard should have rotted in jail, but a judge thought he was “too old”
To make matters worse is that it wasn’t like Flick didn’t give off warning signs. There was reason to recognize that he was a violent man with violent tendencies besides his first murder.
In 2010, he was sentenced again for assaulting another woman. The judge at the time ignored the recommendation of the prosecutor for a longer sentence, saying Flick would not be a threat because of his age and it didn’t make sense to keep him incarcerated. He was released and moved to Lewiston in 2014.
So, he served four years? FOUR! For murder? God help us
Is to protect the citizens. And allowing felons to walk the streets, ain’t cutting it
Law and order have disappeared. First the story: Homeless ex-con ambushes ‘random’ 63-year-old woman with bottle, California cops say.
“He jumped out and kind of like punched her in the head, and that kind of took her down,” said witness Henry Kwan, KCBS reported. “Then he started punching her in the head and kicking her multiple times — maybe 10 to 20 times — and she was screaming for help.”
Eventually he started using a broken bottle as a weapon.
Next up, we examine the reaction of the good people of California. Did anyone race to her defense? Was anyone armed? Of course not! You are supposed to rely on The State for everything.
People working at nearby businesses heard the woman screaming for help and saw Ulloa kicking her in the head in an alley, the L.A. Daily News reported. They also called 911.
The woman who was attacked is in intensive care. The cops did arrest the guy, who has a criminal history and was on parole at the time of the attack.
He had six prior convictions, yet…………..
Feral Irishman highlights one such lowlife
NASHVILLE (WSMV) – Investigators have arrested a man after his wife found video on his phone of him sexually abusing her 5-year-old son, his stepson.
On May 5, the victim’s mother contacted police saying she found video from March 22 around 7:42 a.m. that showed Calvillo engaged in sex acts with the young boy. The details of the affidavit are too explicit to publish.
