How are we even having this conversation? Criminals have absolutely no consequences for their despicable behavior. Now liberal goons have thrown out bail for robbers and thugs who get pinched.
Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino Wednesday introduced a resolution to support the reinstitution of cash bail in Los Angeles County, which was suspended for low-level, non-violent felonies and misdemeanors.
In a statement Wednesday, Buscaino said the suspension of cash bail has "created a free-for-all environment where criminals are charged one day and released the next."
Los Angeles first suspended cash bail in June 2020 as a measure to prevent further spread of COVID-19 in county jails. When District Attorney George Gascón took office in January 2021, he directed deputy district attorneys not to seek money bail for "misdemeanor, non-violent and non-serious felony offenses."
While the cash bail system was not eliminated for violent offenses, Buscaino's resolution cites a "substantial increase in violent crime and brazen robberies."
Councilman Buscaino talked to John & Ken about his push to get cash-bail back into the mix to deter thugs from thugging.
