Nielsen Says Newsom Administration Increases Efforts to Release More Violent Criminals

by ECT

SACRAMENTO – On a late Friday afternoon news dump, the Newsom Administration announced they are automatically giving “good time credit” to violent offenders and second and third strikers in an effort to release them early. These polices will go into effect within hours of the announcement – Saturday, May 1.

Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Red Bluff), former Chairman of the Board of Prison Terms, issued the following statement:

“As the former Chairman of the Board of Prison terms, I am intimately aware of these criminal justice regulations. This is ill-founded, ill-cited criminal justice policies. Violent felons are receiving good time credit for simply breathing, in lieu of demonstrated good behavior and rehabilitation.

“This is another ill-conceived policy of the Newsom Administration in its attempts to release convicted violent criminals back into our communities.

“We, the people, will pay the price for his continued follies.”

What a slap in the face to all the victims. Shame on California with this early release nonsense.

Coming to a city near you, violent felons, given to you by Newsom. Well Lamar prepare yourself for an increase in crime along every corridor in Antioch. You’ll see them with a little suitcase walking down 18th street to a motel paid for with tax dollars. Just saying.

Senator Nielsen! Contrary to what you said, we the people will NOT pay the price, it is the RELEASED violent criminal who will. I’ve noticed three times as many people at the firing range today practicing shooting with some nifty firearms in preparation to defend their families and themselves.

That’s all we need! More violent felons out! See how these politicians screw around with laws? They conveniently change a felony to a misdemeanor to keep the felons out of prisons and in our neighborhoods. Time to get in more target practice! We will need it.

It’s those assholes in Washington, DC who have ordered to thin out the prison population state-by-state. But Newsom should have told them NO! He’s such a chicken! If John Cox were governor, he would have stood up to them!
