Spearheaded by the American Civil Liberties Union and bankrolled by radical speculator George Soros, the “end mass incarceration” movement wants to reduce the U.S. prison population by 50 percent within the next 10 to 15 years.
“We have the largest incarcerated population in the world despite the fact that we’re a democracy and that we value individual freedoms,” Alison Holcomb, national director of the ACLU Campaign to End Mass Incarceration told public radio station KUOW in Puget Sound, Wash.
(Holcomb) doesn’t want thieves and robbers jailed even briefly. If someone steals property, “why is the response to put that person in a cage?” she said.
The thing is, since considerably less than 50% of the prison population is “non-violent,” their plan would necessarily release violent criminals into the population.
U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported there are 156 criminal aliens who were released at least twice by ICE since 2013. Between them, these criminals had 1,776 convictions before their first release in 2013, with burglary, larceny and drug possession. In total, ICE has revealed that 124 illegal immigrant criminals released from jail by the Obama Administration since 2010 have been subsequently charged with murder.
So, release a million criminals into the civilian population while denying innocent people the right to defend themselves with firearms. What could go wrong?
Pretty much everything the average leftist thinks he knows about prison comes from watching ‘Orange is the new Black.’
