One of the many things that separate humans from animals is that we are supposedly capable of learning from the mistakes of others. Going by that yardstick, I have to assume that leftist DA’s who insist on letting criminals out of jail over and over, even as it continues to yield tragic results all around them, are about as smart as chimps in suits. Now, it's already happened again.
How many times do we have to hear some grieving person say, “This shouldn’t have happened” before the people responsible for it happening actually stop letting it happen?
On that subject, the Biden White House is standing by its stance to end cash bail, claiming that whether a suspect is released from jail should depend not on how much bail they can afford but how much of a threat they pose to society.
I might be willing to entertain that argument if any of these people could show me any evidence that they are at all capable of determining how much of a threat individual suspects pose. The Waukesha D.A. couldn’t even tell that the thug with a yard-long record of violent crimes who was just arrested for trying to run over his girlfriend shouldn’t be turned loose.
