First Step Act release of criminals include Rapists, Murderers


So much for the much heralded “Get out of jail early” bill, otherwise known as the “First Step Act.” Truthfully, I have little patience with criminals. Once one is a victim of a violent crime, that’s just the way it rolls. Forever.

But this was suppose to be different. Non-violent offenders. Just some fine folks who got into trouble in the hood who otherwise were on the way to Sainthood, so sure… let’s get them back on the street pronto.

Senator Kennedy straightens the reality of the situation out last night on Tucker Carlson’s program as only the fine Senator can. Rapists, Murderers, you name it are now out roaming our neighborhood. Once again.

This bill was sold to America as only affecting low-level, nonviolent criminals, and that’s just not accurate.

Signed into law in DecemberThe First Step Act – or the Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person Act – is, at its core, a directive for the Justice Department to establish a system to assess the risk of a person to re-offend as well as to create housing or other incentives for offenders to participate in recidivism reduction programs.

In his interview with Tucker Carlson, Kennedy said he didn’t think the law would as intended, only release nonviolent criminals.

“I didn’t believe it,” he said.

“And, I didn’t believe it because I read the bill.”

Citing figures similar to what an administration official exclusively told Carlson’s team, Kennedy said hundreds of those released were imprisoned for weapons charges and sexual crimes, while several dozen were in jail for homicide.

“Those are not low-level, nonviolent criminals,” he said.

    Since this is all trying to read the lawmakers’ (e.g., Jerry Nadler or Adam “Pencilneck” Schiff) and prosecutors’ (e.g., Robbie Mueller) “minds, could I just ask:

    Might this be used to release those who had only killed conservatives?

    It sounds great on paper, or at least what they tell us is on paper, but nothing is every really what they tell us it is and when we look into we see we have been taken advantage of again. I was going to ask how they got the Republicans to get on board with this but I suppose they are hoping to get the votes as well, but that is never going to happen.

    Would it be inappropriate for me to, at this time, relate how very much I hate Ivanka and Jared? Would it be inappropriate for me to curse out Trump for his glaring blind spot regarding these two snakes in the WH?

    I saw Kennedy on Carlson, too………..Anybody who didn’t will not ever know these truths….people really think only sweet, innocent pot smokers are the only ones being freed.
    According to the Left, why not release MS-13 members….after all, they’re just misguided beheaders!

    I watched Carlson’s report on this last night; all I could do was shake my head. From the BOP website, we learn that Hugh J. Hurwitz is the Acting Director of the Bureau of Prisons. Mr. Hurwitz began his career with the Bureau of Prisons as a law clerk in the Office of General Counsel in 1988. He became a full time employee in 1991 when he was selected as a DOJ honors attorney after serving a one-year clerkship at the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. He left the Bureau for private law practice, returning in 1997, as the Assistant Chief for Construction Contracting in the Administration Division. Subsequently, he was selected for positions of increasing responsibility, including Chief of National Contracts and Policy, Chief of the Acquisitions Branch and Procurement Executive for the Bureau of Prisons. In 2003, Mr. Hurwitz was selected as the Chief of Acquisitions and Grants Services at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), later becoming the FDA’s Chief of Information Technology Shared Services. In 2007, he was appointed Senior Procurement Executive for the U.S. Department of Education (ED) before being promoted to Deputy Chief Financial Officer for ED. Mr. Hurwitz joined NASA’s Office of Inspector General in 2012 as the Assistant Inspector General for Management. In 2015, he returned to the Bureau of Prisons as the Senior Deputy Assistant Director for the Information, Policy and Public Affairs Division. Mr. Hurwitz was selected as the Assistant Director for the Reentry Services Division in 2017. On May 18, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed him as the Acting Director of the Bureau of Prisons.

    As Acting Director, Mr. Hurwitz oversees the operation of 122 Bureau of Prisons facilities with oversight and management of approximately 37,000 staff and approximately 184,000 inmates.

    In 1987, Mr. Hurwitz received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of Rochester. In 1990, he received his Juris Doctor degree from American University, Washington College of Law. Mr. Hurwitz has been a member of the senior executive service since 2003.

    Cut to the chase: appointed by Sessions, Hurwitz is a career bean counter and, apparently, not a very good attorney (otherwise he’d be working in the legal field rather than for the government). My head shakes so much, I have a neck ache. Gad …

      Thanks for the background. When those can’t, one can always work for the government… another legacy from Sessions…. I so enjoy Senator Kennedy.

      If the math is correct that’s 5 employees per prisoner so in essence it would seem illegal criminals along with our home grown are doing their part for job creation. Once again giving meaning to the timeless quote of POTUS Calvin Coolidge: “The business of America is business.”

    So here’s my question…

    Did something happen upon the early release of one of the prisoners?

    Blow a stop sign or red light and a distracted motorist will be pounced upon by three stealth police cars blue lights flashing and accosted by officers dressed in black ops garb. Meanwhile it’s hands off of the drug dealers in the parks. On every level of law enforcement our priorities are in order.
