Ever since the coronavirus was first announced, the Democrats have tried to find ways to use it to attack the privileges of the American people. From useless lockdowns to outlandish mandates, the American people have put up with enough from the Democrats and their scare tactics. More seriously, the left thought it would be a great idea to release inmates, no matter their conviction if they were deemed medically vulnerable to COVID-19.
In April, the ACLU decided to team up with the leftists and sue Orange County to release inmates that could spread COVID-19. What is even scarier is the fact that it didn’t matter what the prisoners did to end up in jail. If there were deemed a medical threat, then they were given a free pass back out into the same world they robbed, killed, and raped in.
While the ACLU could sue the county, a judge would have to preside over the case and there is no way it would pass.
Well, unfortunately, it was overseen by and judge, and he, in fact, sided with the ACLU. He said that the sheriff of Orange County, Don Barnes, “deliberate indifference to the substantial risk of serious harm from COVID-19 infection to … medically vulnerable people in [his] custody violates their rights.”
But according to Barnes, that isn’t the case. He told Fox News, “We’ve released 1,400 inmates to date since March for low-level offenders. The only inmates remaining now are serious offenders,” he said. “Of the medically vulnerable, 90 of them are in custody for murder or attempted murder, 94 for child molestation.”
As for the ruling against him, Sheriff Barnes doesn’t see the people in his custody as COVID-19 threats but as inmates who have committed serious crimes. “Everybody in the community is at risk of COVID right now. Not considering the risk to the public they present by being released back into the community, I think is not only absurd, I think it places the community at significant risk …”
According to the DA’s Office, those low-level offenders that were released earlier in the year have committed crimes at three times the average rate. To release serious criminals back into society would pose a much greater threat than any virus ever could.
