(Liberty Bell) – Thanks to the coronavirus outbreak, America has seen some drastic changes and while some rules and “orders” are just blatantly tyrannical and ridiculous, the most confusing and troubling consequence of the virus has been states emptying their prisons in order to prevent the spread.
Quarantining healthy people with stay-at-home orders doesn’t make any sense and is most definitely a violation of our Constitutional rights but releasing dangerous and violent inmates from prison is just downright irresponsible and nonsensical.
In California, seven sex offenders have been released from prison despite being labeled “high risk” by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. Apparently, state officials, including Governor Gavin Newsom, feel that keeping prisons from being “overcrowded” is a priority in slowing the spread of a virus that has currently only affected around 50,000 people in a state of almost 40 million. Interesting to note, over 650,000 people have been tested in the entire state with only 50,442 (as of May 1) testing positive.
But, sure, let’s empty the prisons and make California an even more dangerous place for law-abiding citizens and children.
Breitbart gave a rundown of these 7 “high risk” sex offenders who have histories of violating their parole officers and criminal histories including indecent exposure to a child, sexual battery of a child, and child molestation. Totally the type of people we should be concerned about protecting from a virus they likely would easily survive.
Take a look at these now free criminals:
Luis Joel Ramirez, 27-years-old, who has been convicted of sexual battery, assault with a deadly weapon, resisting a peace officer, burglary and possessing a leaded cane, and a deadly weapon.
Ramirez has violated his parole four times since 2019. He was released on April 7 after serving 20 days credit time served on a parole violation for cutting off his GPS despite a 180 day minimum sentence. Ramirez was again released on April 24 after serving 16 days credit time served on a parole violation for failing to report to parole.

According to Breitbart, Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes said in a news release that the recent release of criminals from prison has reduced the population by almost 45 percent in less than two months and also noted that there were no prior issues with overcrowding.
“These kinds of high-risk sex offenders are the most dangerous kind of criminal and the most likely to re-offend,” Orange County District Attorney Toff Spitzer said in a statement. “They are doing everything they can to avoid detection by the parole officers assigned to monitor them so they can potentially commit additional sex offenses. These are not the kind of people who should be getting a break.
“It is not the Court’s responsibility to control the jail population by releasing these dangerous criminals back into our communities,” Spitzer said. “The residents of Orange County deserve to have the peace of mind that registered sex offenders are being held accountable and not just let out the front door of jail by a court commissioner who refuses to follow the law.”
Just a month ago Newsom made the decision to commute the sentences for 14 convicted murderers, including a man who was convicted of stabbing his pregnant wife to death and a woman who was convicted of assaulting a child to death.
There doesn’t seem to be any actual justification for releasing these types of people back into society, especially in such tumultuous times. Prison is the perfect place to quarantine sick individuals so it seems really bizarre to allow criminals back out on the streets out of fear of the virus spreading when they were, in actuality, much “safer” behind bars.
Newsom is going to turn the entire state into one big criminal-controlled cesspool akin to “Gotham City” with this kind of reckless behavior. Unfortunately, Batman isn’t real and Californians are going to be the ones to suffer.
