Low risk inmate releases started a month ago in many states. Its a double edge sword…many released inmates immediately are homeless and/or without medical insurance, making them no less vulnerable to COVID-19 than they were when in prison.
Not to mention that GOP candidates are already attacking state and local Democrats for the releases despite Trump and Moscow Mitch releasing Manafort, Cohen, and other gang members, as well as the outgoing Republican Governor releasing murderers months prior to COVID-19 striking.
5% of the world’s population yet 30% of confirmed cases.
The world’s highest rate of incarceration, jails are hot spots. Why not let people out? They were given jail time NOT a death sentence…
I’m beginning to think that repubs , tRump, bolsonaro and Putin are trying to kill off “undesirables.” Maybe not trying but letting it happen
