Shocker: 6 Cali 'High Risk' Sex Offenders Released Because Of COVID Back In Jail
It's no surprise that 6 of the 7 'high risk' sex offenders released from California prison early because of coronavirus 'scares' are right back in custody for committing crimes. The prisoners were labeled 'high risk' by the justice system because the odds of them re-offended are extremely high- but they were still released. It's kind of ironic to think the system that labeled them dangerous released them, but that's another rant completely.
Their release was decried by Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer, who issued a warning to residents.
"These kinds of high-risk sex offenders are the most dangerous kind of criminal and the most likely to re-offend," Spitzer said in a news release. "They are doing everything they can to avoid detection by the parole officers assigned to monitor them so they can potentially commit additional sex offenses. These are not the kind of people who should be getting a break."
The sex offenders — convicted of crimes ranging from indecent exposure and sexual battery to child molestation — were released beginning April 7, many of them spending just days behind bars instead of the six months required by law for registered sex offenders who violate parole by removing or disabling GPS monitors.
Is it really that shocking that sex offenders and child molesters would remove or damage their GPS tracking? No. Obviously, many of these men were planning something terrible. Luckily, each one of them was caught before a more serious crime could be committed but it brings back in to question; why were they released???
Spitzer also blasted appointed Court Commissioner Joseph Dane for the release of the sex offenders.
"It is not the Court's responsibility to control the jail population by releasing these dangerous criminals back into our communities," Spitzer said. "The residents of Orange County deserve to have the peace of mind that registered sex offenders are being held accountable and not just let out the front door of a jail by a court commissioner who refuses to follow the law."
To be fair, they were at least monitoring these offenders closely. We know because these men were arrested for tampering with their tracking devices but give me a break!
The prison system has one job- to humanly keep dangerous predators away from the innocent. At least until said predators are deemed to be no longer a threat or their time has been served. So why in the world, would anyone anywhere, unleash a bunch of 'high risk' preditors in the midst of a pandemic? For their protection?
That's the kind of "liberal logic" that I will never understand. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
