    Illinois set to eliminate cash bail in 2023

    .....Representative Windhorst listed some of the offenses that won’t involve detention before going to trial.

    “So there are a whole list of violent crimes, burglary, robbery, arson, kidnapping, almost all drug offenses even drug distribution, DUI offenses, even DUI offenses that are involving a fatality, that do not qualify for detention under the Illinois Safety Act. To me, that’s going to mean a lot of individuals are committing crimes and being released immediately, if not within a couple of days,” he said.

    Illinois is the first state in the country to abolish cash bail.

    Leftists are going nuclear.

    It's really not debatable any longer that leftists, who have basically
    taken over the Democratic Party, are systematically trying to destroy
    our country. The Democratic Party will continue to ram their malignant
    legislation down our throats until we surrender.

    This isn't just the tip of the iceberg, it is the iceberg. Without proper law
    enforcement, there is no longer freedom and liberty for most Americans.
    We will have become subjugated by the criminal element.

    Illinois Democrats’ Bail Abolishment to Free Suspects Charged with Murder, Kidnapping, Burglary: ‘Gates are Open’

    A new law abolishing bail across the state of Illinois, passed by Democrats and signed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D), will free from jail thousands of suspects accused of second-degree murder, kidnapping, burglary, robbery, and other violent crimes.

    Beginning January 1, 2023, Illinois will become the first state in the nation to have eliminated cash bail — even for some of the most violent crimes. As a result, local district attorneys say they will be forced to free thousands of suspects accused of crimes like murder and kidnapping.

    In Winnebago County, Illinois, alone the district attorney estimates that about 400 charged criminals will be freed from jail despite their being accused of violent crimes. Likewise, in Will County, Illinois, about 640 charged criminals will be freed from jail, including 60 accused of murder.

    Violent crimes for which bail will be abolished next year:
    Second-degree murder
    Drug-induced homicide
    Aggravated battery
    Nearly all drug offenses
    Aggravated DUI
    Aggravated fleeing
    Threatening a public official

    What can Democratic Party leftists do that is worse than this?

    Don't worry, they'll think of something, again and again and again.
