Dangerous Criminal Shoots Victim 11 Times After Being Released by Celebrity-Backed Bail Fund
This week, a dangerous criminal was released from jail on bail through the efforts of The Bail Project, a celebrity-backed organization that seeks to reduce mass incarceration. Unfortunately, the criminal proceeded to shoot his next victim 11 times.
The Bail Project was founded by Robin Steinberg, a public defender, and is backed by celebrities such as Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Meek Mill. The organization seeks to end the money bail system, which has been criticized for disproportionately affecting those of lower economic means and for allowing for dangerous criminals to be released back into society.
One of my rebuttals against that though is that they are disproportionately affecting everyday people who are going about their normal lives by being violent against them. Just because they’re poor doesn’t mean they should be able to commit more crimes or have lesser punishments. The solution…DON’T DO BAD THINGS!
However, this case is an example of the unintended consequences of a system that seeks to reduce mass incarceration this guy was released through the efforts of The Bail Project and proceeded to shoot his victim 11 times.
This incident highlights the need for reform in the criminal justice system. Sentencing reform is necessary in order to ensure that those who are convicted of crimes are given appropriate punishments that are not disproportionate to their actions. This incident is a tragic reminder of the need for reform, and it is important to ensure that it does not happen again.
In addition, it is important to consider the safety of communities when making bail decisions. When dangerous criminals are released on bail, it can lead to an increase in crime in the community. The safety of communities should be considered when making decisions about bail. Afterall, we are talking about criminals, not librarians. Personally, I think that these celebrities should be held partly responsible for keeping criminals on the streets.
