Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Of course, that is tongue-in-the-cheek, but if you believe that the general liberal philosophy is to coddle criminals and to denigrate law enforcement, you could find some relevance in that statement. The proof is in the pudding, as the old expression goes.
Why is it when we read about some judge releasing a known criminal back into society by assessing low bail or no bail at all, the chances are great that those federal judges were appointed by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, or is a jurist with obvious liberal tendencies? We have had a spate of recent cases over the past few years, especially when the subjected criminal is an illegal alien. Lenient judges and some feckless politicians have caused some of these criminals to be let go back into society where they then commit further crimes, some that have had a fatal outcome. The Kate Steinle and Mollie Tibbetts murders are unfortunate cases to point out this misguided behavior on the part of the powers-to-be. If the law was enforced the way it was intended, both of those beautiful, hapless victims would still be alive today as their murderers would not have been in our country illegally.
How can supposedly law abiding citizens, on the liberal side of the political spectrum, condone the lenient law enforcement practices that we read about almost on a weekly basis. Compounding the problem is the instituting of “Sanctuary Cities and States” that give illegal aliens more rights than what the average U.S. Citizen gets. It's like a “get out of jail card” that makes a mockery of our laws.
How many crimes have to be committed by illegal aliens in order to bring sanity back into our criminal justice system? Any crime committed by an illegal alien against a U.S. citizen would have been prevented if the law was carried out like it should have been carried out. Some of these illegal alien criminals have been deported multiple times and were using the sanctuary cities as a safe haven to avoid prosecution by ICE.
It seems that the people of the liberal persuasion are more prone to advocate for taking it easy on enforcing the law against illegal aliens, and you could say on criminals in general.
Many of these people who tend to want to take it easy on criminals are people who have not had any bad experiences being physically hurt or personally violated by a criminal. That's why our headline, “What's a Liberal: Someone Who Hasn't Been Mugged Yet” has a certain amount of relevance. Once these “bleeding hearts” get mugged (or otherwise be the victim of a crime), they then become more inclined to look differently about our criminal justice system. The biggest problem we face today in bringing common sense back to our criminal justice system is that nefarious mindset called “political correctness”, and the constant berating of our law enforcement personnel, the people charged with protecting us from the criminal element.
