- Virginia Law to Punish Victimsby Michael Rushford
On November 14, 1996 Alan Peterson, a Southern California contractor, was leaving a Jack in the Box with his lunch when 16-year-old gang member Lawrence Cottle shot him in the chest while attempting to carjack his pickup. A short time later Peterson died in the hospital. The next day Cottle robbed a man at gunpoint, then held his gun to the head of a little girl while stealing her mother’s purse. Cottle ended his crime spree with an armed carjacking before crashing into a police car while attempting to flee. For these crimes Cottle was sentenced to life without parole (LWOP). In May of last year, Alan Peterson’s daughter learned that her father’s murderer was eligible for release on parole and would go before the parole board in June. She was devastated to learn that California has passed a law (SB 394) making murderers under 18 sentenced to LWOP eligible for parole after serving 25 years. Dozens of other families have gone through the same trauma of learning that the murderers of their loved ones have been set free under this law. A committee of the Virginia Senate has just passed out a bill (SB 842) that would make all murderers and all violent criminals eligible for release after serving 15 years. Attorney Hans Bader writes in Liberty Unyielding; “Supporters of the bill argue that “everyone deserves a second chance.” But to critics, the bill goes beyond giving offenders a second chance, because it gives even the most persistent reoffenders the opportunity to seek release — people who already had and squandered a “second chance.” As an objector noted, “most inmates doing more than 15 years have already had their second, third, fourth, and fifth chances — the typical released state prison inmate has five prior convictions, according to Rafael Mangual, who studies the criminal-justice system at the Manhattan Institute.” Once given a second chance, an offender can go on to kill or harm many people. At the age of 19, while on parole, Kenneth McDuff shot and killed two boys, then killed a girl after raping her and torturing her with burns and a broomstick. After being paroled years later at the age of 43, he murdered additional women — as many as 15 women in several states.” In addition to setting potentially dangerous criminals free, the law is a slap in the face to the victims and their families, who thought that they could rely on the state to uphold the law and keep the criminals that ruined their lives behind bars. Bader notes that “Supporters of second-look laws have pointed to how neighboring jurisdictions like Maryland allow judges to revisit some sentences. But Virginia may not want to become more like Maryland, which can be quite soft on crime. Maryland has a violent crime rate nearly twice Virginia’s, even though the two states are demographically similar, and Maryland is even more prosperous than Virginia. Observers tend to attribute the higher crime in Maryland to its soft-on-crime policies... The post Virginia Law to Punish Victims appeared first on Crime & Consequences.
- The Poisoning of Americaby Michael Rushford
If a pipeline owned by Dow Chemical or Chevron had leaked toxins that caused the death of 1,000 Americans in a single year, the entire force of the U.S. Government would have descended upon them, immediately shutting down the operation, followed by federal criminal charges being filed by the Justice Department. It would not matter at all what political party controlled the White House or Congress. Yet in 2021 toxic chemicals manufactured in China and sold to Mexican drug cartels who put them into pills that appear to be widely-prescribed drugs such and Xanax and Adderall. These pills were trafficked across the U.S. southern border and ended up in every American city. That year 70,000 people in the U.S. were poisoned by the fentanyl in those pills or by cocaine laced with the drug. For perspective, 58,209 Americans were killed over the 19 years of the Vietnam War. In the face of this massacre, did the federal government shut down the southern border? Did the President and his State Department sanction China or Mexico for this crime? Did Congress take any decisive action? Almost immediately after taking office the current U.S. President opened the southern border. Since then tens of thousands of foreign nationals have walked across, many wearing T-shirts with Joe Biden printed across the front. The Border Patrol, which used to arrest aliens entering the country illegally, now processes them, gives them a government smart phone, and puts them on buses for transport across the country. While the officers are doing this processing, the cartels smuggle tens of thousands of pills and cocaine laced with fentanyl across unpatrolled parts of the border. Established gangs in every state, with thousands of illegal alien members, buy the pills and sell them to unsuspecting Americans. A story by Tom Howell in the Washington Times reports that 126,000 were poisoned by fentanyl in 2020 and 2021. There must be an explanation for our government’s failure to act decisively to stop this slaughter, but I have not heard it. So far President Biden’s strongest response has been to sign last year’s massive spending bill which will fund treatment programs and the distribution of a drug which appears effective at treating overdoses. This is a disgrace. Earlier this week the New York Post reported that the Seattle-King County morgue in Washington state has run out of places to store the bodies of people who have died from fentanyl overdoses. Officials are reaching out to funeral homes to help with the overflow. Coming to a city near you. The post The Poisoning of America appeared first on Crime & Consequences.
