What has the world come to…
Recently, several House Democrats wrote a letter to AG Barr demanding that he “release as many prisoners as possible” because of the rapid spread of coronavirus.
Jerry Nadler and Karen Bass told Barr to release prisoners regardless of their crimes, basically saying that if a prisoner was in prison for murdering people, he would have a chance at being released.
The letter stated: “We call on you, in the most urgent of terms, to do the right thing and exercise [authority to modify sentences of prisoners who present ‘extraordinary and compelling reasons’] and immediately move to release medically-compromised, elderly, and pregnant prisoners in the custody of the [Bureau of Prisons]. In addition, we urge that you use every tool at your disposal to release as many prisoners as possible, to protect them from COVID-19.”
