The long play for the Black Lives Matter and protest-riot series from 2014 to mid-2016 was to push the meme for police and prison reform. We see this year’s iteration go after police destruction. Police would need to be under federal control, policing would have to change, and this would help the number of innocent Democrats in jail. Jail itself would need reform too, with a changing in sentencing. Maybe the Hillary appointed Warren Court 2.0 could change federal sentencing laws, which surprise surprise is getting a re-run for Biden. That was the low being paid to create an on the ground visual for the high wanting to create chaos and scare the population for more centralization.
It did not happen. This did not stop all of those media outlets that discussed the harm of school to prison pipelines, jail being awfully mean, jail being racist, jail hurting the black family, and other narratives to equate it with slavery or worse. The solution presented was never bring back wider execution practices and bring back exile. There is never any agency placed in the criminals and their families souls. The solution was preselected and presented to you for future legislation.
It did not quite happen, but this does not stop the entire system from fighting mass incarceration, which is a made up problem by the left. A judicial system is still only as good as its administrators and our system is staffed with plenty of good progressives. Good progressives not just wanting to keep their job but to advance and slide to political office is necessary. They want to be good progs.
This is where the religious aspect of progressivism comes in. These progressives want to be good ones and want to be holy for future advance in the church hierarchy. They see the signal from up on high that something, something, must be done about mass incarceration. Shucks, legislation is not going to happen, but they can do something, even if small, they can do it.
America does write its laws down, but the rule of law is long since soured. Simply look at family court. A man and woman divorce, the children are considered her property but legally a man can petition for custody. The courts are legally suppose to hear argument, albeit arguments that a man has to pay a lawyer for because the default is mom has the kids. The underlying belief held by the system is to preserve the mother-child bond. We need not even start on children of unmarried parents, as it takes years to settle if dad dares to want his child. The system is in the hands of those that execute the laws and they are guided by who trained, educated and molded them.
They immediately start pleaing things down. No bail laws have been a nightmare already, but even if cops arrest, what of it? No legislation needed for the people already with the editorial power to pick and choose charges. This already happens anyway but gets even worse as DAs, young ADAs and public defenders now actively look to plea things down to misdemeanors and other crimes that carry lower minimum sentences. DAs then strike deals for lesser time in jail. They even recommend lower time at all sentencing no matter the crime, violent felony or not. Judges on the bench get the signal, too.
This is why the random murders with ex-cons matter in the far bigger picture. It reveals the lie of these weepy penal reform advocates. Random violent felons do minimal time and may never be prosecuted due to prosecutorial discretion. Soros has installed DAs in the biggest metropolitan areas for this discretionary power. Beyond charging, think of the power of plea bargaining? What do you think a prosecutor is going to do to sell someone on a plea deal with the blaring horn and giant red flag from the left’s clerisy to be softer on crime?
This lets everyone out earlier. Not everyone, but those from the disadvantaged populations mentioned in the media propaganda. No legislation needed. All within the perfectly okay boundaries of the judicial system as already encoded. All the left needed was the proper flag to be run up the pole by the priest class, and they would execute on it. All the progressives needed to be told was that this is a good thing.
