Democrats in one blue state want to release violent criminals and leave them free to trespass on anyone’s property

Crime waves are sweeping the nation following long-running movements to defund police.

Democrat-run cities are literally falling apart at the seams from the ensuing chaos. 

Now Democrats in one blue state want to release violent criminals and leave them free to trespass on anyone’s property.

SAFE-T Act will free violent criminals charged with armed robbery, homicide, and other aggravated crimes

The past few years, Democrats have been fighting to defund the police and it hasn’t ended well.

Violent crime is skyrocketing in Democrat-run cities across America with what seems like no end in sight.

Now the state legislature in Illinois just doubled down on the insanity by pushing new cashless bail provisions set to take effect in 2022.

The Illinois Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today Act is an omnibus bill that was passed in the House and subsequently signed into law by Gov. Pritzker. 

The SAFE-T Act has been widely criticized and referred to as the “Purge Law” after the movie The Purge: Anarchy where a town legalizes all crime for one night per year.

The city of Orland Park – a suburb of Chicago – released a statement describing it as the “Abolition of cash bail for almost every offense. Including . . . kidnapping, armed robbery, second degree murder, drug induced homicide, aggravated DUI, threatening a public official and aggravated fleeing and eluding.”

Though many have focused on the law’s cash bail reform, there are other major issues with it.

The law is targeting police officers and will result in less interest from good people

One major problem is that the bill will take away protections for police officers. 

If someone wants to accuse an officer of something they need only to submit an anonymous complaint. 

The Mayor of Orland Park says he’s not sure how they will retain officers or “get people who will be good police officers in the future to join with a law like this in place,” and that the bill “really targeted police officers to try and drive them out of the profession.”

He further warned that under the new law, “Trespassers cannot be removed from your property by police,” because under the new law police, “can’t lay a hand on someone.”

This means that if someone is posing a danger on your property then there’s nothing the police can do.

State’s Attorney says that the law means murderers no longer pose a threat

Winnebago County State’s Attorney J. Hanley wrote in an Op-Ed that on January 1 when the law goes into effect, “approximately 400 criminal defendants will be released back into [the Winnebago] our community.”

Hanley asks the readers, “Imagine the defendant who murdered his wife, to whom he no longer poses a threat, being released because of this ridiculously limited legal standard,” this will undoubtedly lead to an “unnecessary burden on law enforcement.”

Will County State’s Attorney slammed the bill warning it would “destroy the state of Illinois.”

Pritzker defends SAFE-T Act saying it won’t let “murderers and abusers pay their way out of jail”

Kankakee County State’s Attorney Jim Rowe chose to file a lawsuit arguing the SAFE-T Act seeks to change the Illinois Constitution and that it cannot be done without a referendum or a Constitutional Convention. 

Governor Pritzker’s office responded to his suit calling it a “weak attempt to protect the status quo that lets murderers and abusers pay their way out of jail.”

It’s only a matter of time before crime is out-of-control and the state is destabilized.

Pritzker and the Illinois Democrats are just following the socialist playbook.
