All across the country, our communities are seeing the real-life consequences of unchecked crime. After 9 people were shot at a mall in South Carolina, police arrested a 22-year-old suspect, but he was quickly released after he paid 10% of a $25,000 bond. In Los Angeles, a gang member was thrilled to learn that District Attorney George Gascon was downgrading his murder charges. The convicted killer, who was originally facing life without parole, praised Gascon and vowed to get his name tatted on his face.
There’s been a lot of people recently talking about the revolving-door criminal justice system and the deadly policies of rogue prosecutors. What they are saying now, the Fraternal Order of Police was saying nearly 800 days ago. In December of 2019, FOP leaders from across the country met at the White House to sound the alarm of a looming crime crisis in America. One caused by rogue prosecutors, activist judges, and radical policies like bail reform.
On this episode of the Blue View, we’re joined by National Fraternal Order of Police Vice President Joe Gamaldi to discuss the crime crisis, rogue prosecutors, and the current state of policing in America.
