You mischaracterized what he wrote. There were news stories put out today about incoming house freshmen wanting to abolish prisons. That's what he's talking about.Oh right. Yeah. It’s a plot to keep criminals out of jail. What a clever way for people elected to public office to keep their constituents happy while raking in those big campaign donations from affluent junkies, gang members, petty thieves and the mentally ill! I feel so enlightened!
Liberals can be all for social justice but they still want gang members doing drive-bys, bike and catalytic converter thieves, DV perps, thieves and rapists caught, arrested, charged, convicted and jailed. I know not one pinko who doesn’t want the dbag who stole her bike to pay because of the thief’s unfortunate childhood.
It’s more politically palatable to fund prosecutors than indigent defense attorneys, especially for the law and order types, but if PDs aren’t funded the system doesn’t work.
When PDs were funded, the system wasn't working so great either.
