As crime is skyrocketing across the U.S., pro-criminal activists have a friend in the White House.
President Biden’s administration is working on ideas to keep dangerous individuals on our streets, leading to more crimes, all in the name of racial justice. Their call to end cash bail comes at a time when FBI data show an unprecedented rise in violent crime
“We are also committed to increasing federal oversight and accountability for police departments and prosecutors’ offices to address systemic misconduct, including gender bias and sexual misconduct,” reads part of a 42-page White House report entitled the National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality. “And we will work to end cash bail and reform our pretrial system, recognizing the harm these processes cause, particularly for Black women and families.”
The report calls for a “whole of government” approach to ending gender inequalities, with the elimination of cash bail being one of the steps governments can take to combat gender and race disparities.
But the calls to end cash bail comes at a time when FBI data show an unprecedented rise in violent crime, with the numbers of murders in the U.S. rising by nearly 30% in 2020. That number represents the largest single-year increase recorded since the FBI began tracking the statistic.
The overall violent crime rate, which also includes assault, robbery, and rape, rose 5% in 2020 compared to 2019.

A prime example took place last night in Wisconsin.
Darrell Brooks, a repeat felon who got out on bail just 2 days ago, was charged with 5 Counts of Intentional Homicide.
At least 5 people are dead and 40 others injured after Brooks broke through the barriers with his SUV and sped through the Waukesha Christmas parade.
The alleged Waukesha car attack suspect Darrell E. Brooks currently has two open criminal cases against him.
He posted bond for two felonies and three misdemeanors two days ago

Shoplifters Are Looting In Broad Daylight In Blue Cities, Police Hands Are Tied Under Democrat Leadership. Even if they are arrested and booked, they are released back out into the streets without bail.
Following a relentless effort by the Democrat establishment to demonize and defund the police, crime rates in deep-blue cities, including New York City, Portland, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, and St. Louis, are skyrocketing.
Muggings, vehicle break-ins, carjackings and homicides are surging in blue cities across the country amid the implementation of bail-reform laws that keep violent offenders out of jail and legislative measures that put the burden of liability on police officers while emboldening criminals.
As Violent Crime SURGES across America, some politicians and some in the media are gaslighting the public into thinking the Police are the Problem…
Atlanta ⬆️ 58%
Portland ⬆️ 533%
Philadelphia ⬆️ 37%
New York City ⬆️ 64%
Los Angeles ⬆️ 51%
Chicago ⬆️ 18% pic.twitter.com/5RbhbKY312

Advocates for keeping the cash bail system, including police and prosecutors across the nation, argue that ending the practice would put the public at risk, pointing to statistics in cities that have eliminated cash bail that show the likelihood of rearrest before trial rose 37% in those locations. Suspects were also more likely to miss their court date in cities that had eliminated cash bail.
A letter from Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris included in the report argues that the reforms are needed to promote equality, saying that America has “never fully lived up to” the idea that “every one of us is equal in dignity and deserves to be treated equally.”
“This strategy outlines an ambitious agenda for this administration and those to come – a roadmap to help our nation close pernicious gender gaps and propel us toward a world with equal opportunity for all people,” the letter reads. “Ensuring that all people have the opportunity to live up to their full potential, regardless of gender identity or other factors, is not only a moral imperative. It is a strategic imperative.”
