AOC Targets ‘Excessive Bail’ Day After Suspect Out On Bail Hit 50+ People With Car In Waukesha

"“When prosecutors seek excessive cash bail, it results in increased rates of incarceration — particularly for low-income defendants,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “More than 75% of individuals in custody haven’t been convicted of a crime, and are confined in unsafe conditions simply because they cannot afford cash bail. Condemning thousands of individuals to languish in such environments as they await trial is unacceptable.”

"Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks come just one day after a 39-year-old black male was taken into custody by law enforcement officials and charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide after driving over dozens of people in a Christmas parade.

"The suspect “has been charged with or convicted on an array of charges over the past 22 years, including battery, domestic violence, cocaine possession and resisting arrest in several jurisdictions in Wisconsin,” The New York Times reported. “He has served at least two jail sentences and spent years on probation and in court-mandated work-release and anger management programs …”

Earlier this month, the suspect was arrested for allegedly punching his child’s mother in the face and hitting her with his car at a gas station. The criminal complaint from the incident says that “officers observed tire tracks on her left pants leg.”

How dumb can this "birthing person" be?

Six people have died now, a young boy is the latest fatality. He shouldn’t get bail at all. He is a career criminal with a long rap sheet and he was supposed to register as a sex offender in Nevada but didn’t even do that. He’s already had too many chances as it is and then to pull this evil stunt.

[@1232650,JimBeam] It was a boy. I had read about a little girl having internal injuries and thought they were talking about her. An 8-year old boy.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@1232650,JimBeam] good, he made his bed and now he can lie in it.
JimBeam · M

Yes, I just heard it a little bit ago. Such a tragedy. I heard one of the locals say he'd never go to a parade, again.

The city is even considering not having parades, anymore.

Make that 6 deaths a 7 year old boy died today.

Earlier I heard Dan Bongino say that Soros has a hand in all of this lunacy in our legal system. If he's not the devil, he's at least working for him.

[@1232650,JimBeam] soros pours millions into supporters of his left-wing islamo-nazi marxist bullschiff
But don’t dare mention that George soros owns pretty much all DOJs in blue states..
wHo gives bail to pedos women beaters and career thieves.. and hold patriots without trial more a year..

That would be…..
…… wait for it..
JimBeam · M

He made a pile of money off of the system he's trying to destroy.
[@1232650,JimBeam] I dont think the elite care about money at this point. They’ve amassed it all. Now they gunna use that war chest for control..
JimBeam · M

I actually think that the snowflakes are going to surprise us.
The woke are a powerful bunch, but when you take away their iPhones......

jackj · 56-60, M
Cortez is brilliant. At least that’s what the media says …….
[@1158,jackj] you hit it...the media ( that falls and prays at her little altar)
I can’t wait til she tries to sell or auction “tax the rich” dress. If she does, will she re-distribute whatever she gets for it?
[@1232650,JimBeam] Damn!, C’mon’re tough on her. Be nice, you know the deal!!
JimBeam · M

I learned to be tough when Corn Pop pulled a knife on me at the pool.
curiosi · 56-60, F
She was fine when Rittenhouse was a political prisoner!
JimBeam · M

The entire liberal community was fine with that. I saw his interview on Tucker, and he really kicked ass. If you haven't seen it, you should try and find it.

When Tucker asked him about seeking defamation suits against Biden and the rest of the jackasses, he just smiled and said: "I have a very good team of lawyers looking into that."

Tucker asked him a second time, and got the same response. His lawyers told him what to say and what not to say.
Only when that slag takes her $5000 handbag down to the border with her crocodile tears under the Biden admin and cry me a river about kids in cages.. can she ever earn redemption..
JimBeam · M

We know that's not going to happen. Even Kamala didn't go all the way to the border.

Every time AOC opens her mouth, she says something stupid. Anyone that listens to her is an idiot.
[@20437,ron122] That is rich coming from you. And good job proving yet again you have no idea what you are talking about.
ron122 · 41-45, M
[@346344,PicturesOfABetterTomorrow] Yeah and the shit that comes out of your mouth is rich. You want to be relevant so bad don't you?
HoraceGreenley · 56-60, M
Well she sure has a lousy sense of timing!
carpediem · 61-69, M
No one can be that stupid. She does this crazy shit to try and remain relevant.
jackj · 56-60, M
You’re giving her too much credit. There is no plan. [@112526,carpediem]
carpediem · 61-69, M
[@1158,jackj] Maybe you're right. She's an idiot's idiot.
jackj · 56-60, M
Hence her cozy relationships with Schumer and Sanders. [@112526,carpediem]
RogueLoner · M
Good. Let him out on bail. Maybe a family member of one of the victims will grow a spine and shoot him or cut his throat. I would.
JimBeam · M

I'd prefer someone in prison cut his throat. But I know what you mean.

[@1232650,JimBeam] Another dirtbag bought and paid for by Soros.
JimBeam · M

That's what I heard also.
Well the Wisconsin authorities had a re-think on his previous bail.
For Congresswoman Cortez , this is not unusual for her. But, did she actually cite Mr. Brooks? If she did, it could backfire on her. If she did not, she took the less contentious and somewhat politically safer approach.
JimBeam · M

I don't think she sited anyone, but her timing is in pretty poor taste, seeing that there were 18 kids in the hospital, one of which died today. She could have waited a few weeks for this .
FreeSpirit1 · 51-55, F
This makes me think of AOC

4meAndyou · F
I saw on the news that she said that. It's just another indication of her stupidity, and extremely poor sense of timing.
4meAndyou · F
[@112526,carpediem] No, no...she was a only...but she would probably screw up your order, write Captain on your cup...and if you complained she would make YOU feel guilty...🤣
carpediem · 61-69, M
[@387713,4meAndyou] she was under qualified to be a barista. That's why she's now in Congress. You don't need any brains.
4meAndyou · F
[@112526,carpediem] Sad...very sad!
$1,000 bail was a joke. This guy should still be locked up.
MasterLee · 51-55, M
She is right. Just execute him on the video footage.

What? No spurious Branco meme attached to this post? You're failing ole sunstroke 🦆
[@605026,spjennifer] He has been recycling them alot lately so I think he is out of new material.
spjennifer · 56-60, T
[@346344,PicturesOfABetterTomorrow] He ran out of new material decades ago, they just keep flipping his tape over at the ole folks home every few days! 🦆😆
Oh look, you found one anecdote out of a country of 350 million people. You want a cookie for that? 🤦‍♂️
[@494950,sunsporter1649] Lol. Just parroting back my own statements doesn't make you look any less nuts.
sunsporter1649 · 70-79, M
[@346344,PicturesOfABetterTomorrow] So says an avowed left-wing nut-job islamo-nazi marxist
[@494950,sunsporter1649] Thanks for proving yet again all you care about is blind partisan loyalty, not facts or evidence or reality.

You must have been junior ranks because you are great at following along like a lemming but incapable of thinking for yourself.
Your entire post here also shows you have no idea what the point of bail even is in the first place. But ignorance is your business.
[@494950,sunsporter1649] This is basic high school level shit. It is only ever been a monetary incentive to make sure you show up for court. Not to keep people languishing in dungeons like it is the 1400s. So bail the defendant is incapable of paying is by definition excessive.
sunsporter1649 · 70-79, M
[@346344,PicturesOfABetterTomorrow] So $5,000,000 is excessive, reduce it to $500, let the jackass out to kill more, right?
[@494950,sunsporter1649] 🤦‍♂️Thanks for proving you still don't know what the point of bail is. But we all know you think the Dark Ages are what we should model society off of.
beckyromero · 36-40, F
She has absolutely no sense of political timing.
