Purge Law Inflicts Catch and Release on Illinois

Catch and release has worked so well at the border and in New York City that Democrat-dominated Illinois is adopting the policy:

The Illinois Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a state law passed following the death of George Floyd that was intended to end cash bail for most criminal defendants.

At first it seemed sanity might intervene…

The SAFE-T Act was approved by the state General Assembly in January 2021 but was halted at the eleventh hour after a Kankakee County judge ruled the ending of cash bail to be unconstitutional.

But as usual in Illinois, moonbattery prevailed:

The lower court ruling was sent to the state Supreme Court, which overturned it in a 5-2 decision.

Obese plutocrat Governor J. B. Pritzker approves of the decision. Anarchotyranny means the same tyrant who would not allow more than two people to ride on a boat during Covid hysteria wants actual criminals to run loose wreaking havoc.

The dementedly pro-criminal SAFE-T Act has been called the “Purge Law,” in reference to the movies/TV series about crime being made legal for 12 hours once a year to keep the population down. Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau calls it “the most dangerous law I’ve ever seen.” In addition to establishing a revolving door for dangerous criminals, other aspects include…

…limiting when defendants can be deemed flight risks, allowing defendants under electronic monitoring to leave home for 48 hours before they can be charged with escape, and preventing police from arresting non-violent trespassers…

Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul barks that “The SAFE-T Act was intended to address pervasive inequalities in the criminal justice system.”

That’s the purpose the criminal justice system serves, where Democrats have consolidated control: addressing “pervasive inequalities” rather than securing public safety.

After cash bail is ended on September 18, Democrats will boast of having reduced the incarcerated population. This will win votes from their base in places like the South Side of Chicago. The city has succumbed to the Democrat Death Spiral, having driven out enough sane people to guarantee ever more radical left-wing rule. The entire state looks ready to follow it down the drain.
