Is it just us or does it seem that liberals are the ones pushing their political agenda during the COVID-19 crisis?
What the wildest attempts to attach unrelated agenda items to Corona bills you've seen?
Taxpayer funded abortions
Electric vehicle subsidies
Wind and solar power subsidies
Credit card interchange price controls

We guess we’ll call it “prison reform” that’s also gotten a boost from the coronavirus outbreak. As Twitchy reported earlier, police in Philadelphia aren’t to make arrests for non-violent crimes, such as retail theft, automobile theft, burglary, fraud, and prostitution. Also, the Legal Aid Society has called for a moratorium on arrests by the New York Police Department.
The ACLU is getting in on the game as well, calling for the immediate release of prisoners most susceptible to COVID-19, such as those over 60. The Bureau of Prisons should also “diminish intake of others to reduce overcrowding.”

As public health experts have repeatedly said, federal, state and local officials must take steps now to decarcerate and protect those involved in the criminal legal system.

Yeah, no, as someone who lives by the state penitentiary, you think I wanna worry about a bunch of convicts being released out into my area right now?
— Andrew Thompson (@AC_Boogy) March 18, 2020
Um. No. I'm liberal and like the ACLU, but NOPE to this.

Curious, where will all these older individuals go upon release? I get your intention in this to help, but they will still be exposed whether in prisons or in the general public

Let’s send them all to the homes and neighborhoods where these ACLU clowns reside. House them feed them and let them near your personal belongings and let us know how that works out – P S dont call police if you become a crime victim. @odonnell_r @Sal_LaBarbera

Arrests are being suspended.
Processing is being shut down.
ACLU demands criminals be released onto the streets.

This, and in Philly and other areas, police ordered to not make arrests.
Pushing for anarchy.

Just keep them quarantined in their cells. No more yard time.

The ACLU is nonessential and must be shut down for the duration of the pandemic.

Many folks I know thought I was nuts for buying more ammo. Well, I just recently got asked to borrow a gun for home protection.
Sorry bud, can't do that.

Let them out of prison just for them to find out that the cops aren’t arresting people anymore — brilliant.
Why do people want guns? Philadelphia Police's response to COVID19 is great news … for the city's aspiring criminal population https://t.co/6Ei14LtiRY
