Looks Like Felons Will Serve on Juries in California

No matter how far progressives push the envelope, they will find a way to push it further still. Did you think nothing could top the lunatic malevolence of presidential candidates calling for felons to vote on who governs us from behind bars? Wrong. Now the kooks running California want felons to serve on juries.

This would be brought to pass by Senate Bill 310, which was excreted by State Senator Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley). It makes no distinction between violent and nonviolent offenders and ignores the obvious bias of convicted felons against law enforcement and criminal justice.

Skinner observes that felons can already vote in California, so why not put them on juries? You have to push the envelope somewhere.

Skinner’s bill cleared the Senate Public Safety Committee by a 5-1 vote and then the full Senate 27-10.

From the Orange County Register:

SB310 is not about expanding civil rights for persecuted minorities or reintegrating felons into society — it’s about stacking the deck against prosecutors by making it impossible to win criminal convictions.

This is consistent with the objectives of California’s liberal rulers.

From the early release of inmates through AB 109, to filling parole boards with felon friendly commissioners, to decriminalizing a litany of felonies and drug offenses with Props 47 and 57, Sacramento lawmakers are bending over backwards to dramatically reduce the state’s inmate population.

Sometimes you have to decide between the interests of law-abiding citizens and those of criminals and sociopaths. For Democrats, the decision is easy.

Opposition will be beaten down with the race club:

In testimony to the Committee, Brendon Woods, Alameda County’s Public Defender, noted that defendants of color are often faced with juries in California in which “no one who sits in judgment looks like [them].”

Those who don’t want America’s criminal justice system reduced to farce on behalf of criminals are racists. They require reeducation. In the near future, expect California to make college not only free but mandatory.
