One of the dumbest moves made by Democratic mayors and governors was the wholesale release of prison inmates. That is saying something considering all the stupid moves Democratic mayors and governors have committed. You can see the results of their actions as their crime rates are going through the roof.
Democrats are constantly saying that rape is a serious crime and I agree 100%. However, when it came to releasing prisoners, they considered rape as a non violent crime. Tell that to a woman who has been brutally beaten and raped. I'm guessing they would have a different take on the matter.
Ibrahim E. Bouaichi was released from prison on the premise that he could get coronavirus in prison. Bouaichi was released in Virginia and he did not rape again, but he did murder the women whom he raped and testified against him in court.
When the coronavirus scare came into being Bouaichi's lawyers asked the court to free him until his trial. Bail was set at $25,000, which he arranged and he was free. any way you slice it, the idea of freeing this violent criminal was a huge mistake and one the judge should answer for.
Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins released Bouaichi on $25,000 bond, ordering him not to leave his Maryland home unless meeting with his lawyers or court officials, The Washington Post reports. He was freed on April 9. Gonzalez was notified the same day, according to the Alexandria Sheriff's office.
On Wednesday, August 5, one week after Gonzalez was killed, Alexandria police officers with the FBI's regional Violent Crimes Task Force spotted Bouaichi in Prince George's County, Maryland.
When authorities chased him, Bouaichi crashed the car he was driving. He was found inside with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was taken to a hospital for medical treatment.
