Democrats want the crime rate to soar

Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia added 200,000 convicted felons to his party's registration rolls by unilaterally lifting the ban on their voting. This is all party of the new push for criminal justice reform -- and it is a crime. Democrats and their RINO brethren in Washington are going to turn the clock back 50 years and loosen upon the American people hundreds of thousands of criminals who should be in prison.

Instead they will be on the streets robbing, raping and killing innocent Americans again.

Hillary Clinton recently apologized for her husband's crime bill, which along with the lifting of restrictions on gun ownership and use, helped drop the national crime rate. Easily a quarter-million lives were saved thanks to the drop in the homicide rate alone.

The liberal Richmond Times-Dispatch reported:
"We benefit from a more just and accountable government when we put trust in all of our citizens to choose their leaders," McAuliffe said Friday from the steps of the state Capitol, where a gospel choir warmed up a jubilant crowd. "It has taken Virginia many centuries, unfortunately, to learn this lesson. But today, we celebrate its truth."
The action, which comes just days after the General Assembly wrapped up the 2016 legislative session, has the potential to expand the state's voter rolls, currently estimated at about 5.4 million, by as much as 3.8 percent.
Virginia is one of 10 states that do not automatically restore rights upon completion of a felony sentence and one of only four states that require an application by the felon and action by the governor, according to the McAuliffe administration, which cited research showing one of every five African-Americans of voting age in Virginia has lost the right to vote.
Not until paragraph did the newspaper bother to refer to another side: The rights of Americans to be protected from criminals.

McAuliffe's move is part of a national campaign to stop enforcing laws against street crimes. Liberals have succeeded in gutting the police in inner cities through BLM. And already there is talk of criminal justice reform among Republicans.

This will fail to do anything but increase the crime rate.

In the 1960s, the push to let inmates walk was couched as rehabilitation. Now it is couched as racism.

But it is racist to free criminals as half the murder victims in America are black.

    1. I seriously doubt it. Democrats believe - correctly, I am afraid - that they are now beyond the reach of the proles. Turning the streets of major cities such as New York City and Chicago into crime-infested hellholes did not cost Democrats a single vote as far as I can determine.

      As Mark Steyn once noted: sometimes societies become too stupid to survive. In November of this year tens of millions of Americans will flood the polling booths to vote for Hillary! simply because the MSM/DNC axis has decreed that a woman must hold the office. Such a society won't live for long, and does not deserve to.

  2. To the Dimocrats: Orwell's "1984" was a warning, not a how-to manual.

    1. They disagree, and prefer it as a how-to.

    2. He should have titled it 2024 and it would have been more accurate. Look at the Dim AGs who want to prosecute climate change deniers.

  5. If there is a financial crisis in the country---one caused by the failure of bad government policies---it becomes an excuse for the government to impose more regulation to control how you spend your money. If there is an increase in crime---one created intentionally by bad government policy---it becomes an excuse for government to seize more power to control how you live. You keep your money subject to their whims; you keep your freedom only if you fight for it.

    1. As the violent crime rate increases the politicians, who must be seen to be doing something, anything, will impose more gun control on the law abiding citizens and then claim that they addressed the problem.

  6. Not only voting, they want to keep employers from even asking if anyone has a criminal record. I'll bet Fort Knox is receiving a ton of employment applications. - Elric
