The Criminal Revolving Door In Detroit

One of the main problems involving crimes by criminals with firearms is not the firearm.

Instead, the pattern adopted by areas with high amounts of violent crime is to have a revolving door where violent criminals are released on no bond, or low bond and are free to continue their violent crime sprees.

The Detroit News: Detroit police Chief Craig speaking out against bond decision in case involving late officer

In Detroit, it is often the 36th District Court and its judges that set bond, and they seem to go out of their way to let criminals out.

Per the article, you can point a firearm at police officers while fleeing police and getting into a crash and then be released - with no bond in March of this year:

[36th District Judge's] decision to free two men from jail without having to post bond after they allegedly pointed a gun at a police corporal and his partner before leading officers on a high-speed chase that ended when the car plowed into a police cruiser.

That is unacceptable and it's not the only example.

Chief Craig reports that 75% of those arrested while illegally carrying firearms are released with no or low bond  - any wonder why violent crime is up in Detroit (and other locales with a similar revolving door)?

Progressives calling for gun control and gun bans while at the same time you have progressive judges releasing violent criminals who use guns in crimes out of jail wholesale is the height of ineffective insanity.

Hey Aaron;

To Democrats, Criminals are a constituent base. Birds of a feather and all that.
