Democrats have become the party that opposes law and order and champions criminals over citizens.
And there’s no clearer example than this top Democrat running for U.S. Senate.
Now, all hell is breaking loose after he was just exposed for demanding the release of convicted murderers from jail.
The last two years have revealed the true extent of just how much the Left despises law and order in the United States.
After using Covid as an excuse to release hundreds of convicted rapists and murderers into the streets at the height of the pandemic, the Left then transitioned to being the party that wanted to abolish the police while also taking away the American people’s ability to defend themselves with a firearm.
And now, several of these prominent anti-police, pro-criminal politicians have risen up the ladder in the Democratic Party and are now running for higher office themselves.
And one of the most prominent ones is Pennsylvania Lt. Governor and Democrat Senate nominee John Fetterman, who was just exposed for championing the release of someone convicted of second-degree murder.
Fox News reports, “The campaign of Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman is walking back comments he made last year that appeared to call for the release of all second-degree murderers from Pennsylvania’s prisons.
“Fetterman, the Pennsylvania lieutenant governor who chairs the state’s Board of Pardons (BOP), commissioned two reports last year released by Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity (PLSE) that recommended the BOP consider merit-based clemency for currently incarcerated second-degree murderers, as well as for the state legislature to reform the law that mandates life sentences without parole for second-degree murder convictions,” adds Fox News.
At the time, Fetterman demanded what he called “mercy for the deserving and rehabilitated.”
But at no point did Fetterman ever call for justice for the victims of violent criminals who terrorize innocent people.
Just like most other prominent politicians on the Left, Fetterman is more concerned about criminals than he is the victims they create.
“During a PLSE press conference on March 1, 2021, Fetterman said the reports documented ‘the lives that are destroyed’ and ‘the resources that are wasted’ due to Pennsylvania’s statute, and that he hoped the reports’ findings would ‘lead to a conversation’ that would free close to 1,200 people. At the time, PLSE reported that there were 1,166 people incarcerated in the state serving life sentences without parole for second-degree murder,” adds Fox News.
Fetterman’s comments once again expose how radical the Left has become when it comes to basic questions of law and order, and reveal that many Democrats may paint themselves as reasonable moderates, but champion policies that would leave innocent people totally exposed and vulnerable to the predations of violent criminals who want to inflict pain and suffering on them.
And now that he’s running for a U.S. Senate seat, his record is finally coming to light, giving the voters of Pennsylvania a chance to reject his policies or embrace the same record that has left cities like Chicago and Los Angeles some of the most crime-infested urban centers in the country.
