Who could have predicted that a criminal would not “take advantage of this health emergency to commit crimes?”
While the majority of law-abiding citizens are ordered to stay home, criminals are given a free pass in order to “save lives.”
Such is the case in Hillsborough County, Florida. WFLA reports that Joseph Edwards Williams was awaiting resolution of a low-level, non-violent offense. He was released from custody until trial.
The day after his release he was arrested for second-degree murder. The only other details provided are “second degree murder with a firearm, a gun charge and resisting an officer.”
The perp was originally in jail for possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.
No worries, though. The good Sheriff has called upon the State Attorney to prosecute this perp to the fullest extent of the law.
