We are seeing a disturbing trend of rising violent crime in cities across the country.
The common denominators seem to be Democrat mayors and/or Soros prosecutors.
Judge Jeanine Pirro made a great point that is hard to argue… the system is just broken.
Can It Be Fixed?
Today’s justice system seems to be more about putting people back on the street than it does in holding them accountable.
Pirro stated, “I found this out when I was first a judge. I would sentence someone to x number of years and they’d be eligible for parole and I’d get the request from parole as DA and I remember saying, ‘I just sentenced that guy.’
“There’s not only no truth in sentencing in most states in this country, there’s a benefit given for good time, whatever the hell that means, like if you don’t stab or shiv your neighbor.”
She continued, “Now what we’ve got to understand is the criminal justice system is not just broken from the offenders being released as soon as they’re arrested, but it’s broken because of plea bargains, it’s broken because of parole, probation.
“When someone is put on probation, they’re in touch with their probation officer, I’ve got news for you.
“What they do is if they’re lucky, they call up, the probation officer loses them, doesn’t even bother to file a violation of probation.
“The whole system is broken and my only question, and I’ll end with this, is how long will it take for the pendulum to swing back where it needs to be.”
That whole report is dead on and will only get worse.
When you look at someone like John Fetterman, who is running for the Senate in PA, we could have lawmakers who are literally looking to empty out prisons by 50 percent.
Right now, regardless of the crime, there is almost no consequence.
