Prisoners across the country are being released to stop the spread of Wuhan virus in order to “protect public health.”
You know that many criminals are going to go back to their old ways. Three of them recently released in Washington State did just that.
KOMO News reports that three prisoners released were re-arrested for new crimes. One smashed some boards at a restaurant while high as a kite, another stole items from a store and another took police on a high speed chase.
After the criminals were arrested AGAIN they were released AGAIN.
A representative from the Seattle Police Officers Guild said, “I said they were going to reoffend.”
Here’s the kicker from KOMO: “We asked Inslee what he’s now doing to reassure the public. He did not answer that question but his office sent us a statement that reads in part: “This group was chosen to reduce the risk to public safety, but no choice could be made to guarantee that there would never be a new crime committed.”

Meanwhile, Gov. Inslee has extended Washington’s “stay at home” order until May 31. And the process to re-open their economy is very complicated.
Yet the criminals are free to run around and continue their business as usual.
