    "Trenton, NJ – New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed off on a bill that will release thousands of inmates early beginning the day after Election Day. Murphy endorsed the legislation on Oct. 19, paving the way for an estimated 2,088 prisoners to walk out of prison on Nov. 4, NJ Advance Media reported.

    About 1,000 more inmates are set to be released ahead of schedule through January of 2021."

    Come on, man. :D

    Why would NJ voters complain about getting what they voted for in their governor? It's their state, and their business ... and pure democracy means mob rule, anyway. :p

    No biggie.
    :animlol:

    As one former community organizer once told everyone ... Elections have consequences. :cool:

    Maybe they're having a crime shortage and need some more?

    Those are rookie numbers compared to my state with a “Republican“ Governor. No party is “tough on crime” in the modern era, it’s just that one side says they are...

    From that site:

    O-kayyy...?

    Great....... *rolls eyes*

    JFC, at least that!

    WHY???????

    Hey, New Jersey, time to get your head out of your ass. Seriously, what the **** is wrong with their governor? "It will free up space in prisons for more social distancing." - yeah, by letting criminals out of jail where they should be!!! I don't mean to sound too crass here, but if prisoners get the Coof, **** 'em! They have a 99.6% chance of surviving anyway, I bet that is better odds than a lot of them have just going to the showers!

    Soooo.... one of the states with the toughest gun laws, where CCW permits are virtually unobtainable is letting out a bunch of prison inmates.

    Since Trenton was specifically mentioned, they'll likely dump some of these guys into eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware to start trouble.

    I say we tear down all the bridges leading from PA and DE to New Jersey, then let them and Their communist neighbors in New York fight it out.

    I have it on good authority that in the 1970s and early 1980s, the police departments of Morrisville and Yardley had explosives to blow the bridges if Trenton had out of control rioting that was headed their way.

    It sounds hard to believe I know, but a former cop friend of mine saw the munitions in their armories. It kind of makes sense because those towns have very small depts. that couldn't handle large scale rioting.

    I make it a habit to never underestimate anyone or anything; especially at times like this.

    A quick web search shows that Morrisville supposedly has one of the lowest crime rates in PA. I'm willing to bet that the local police (and citizens) will do whatever it takes to keep it that way.

    For now, police roadblocks may suffice. Let's hope this situation doesn't escalate to a point where actual explosives are necessary.

    The whole state is a gulag, so prison inmates won't notice much additional freedom...

    Maybe there will be shipping containers full of fully automatic weapons, body armor, mortars, RPG's, radios and light armored vehicles complete with UN "advisors" waiting outside the prisons for them.

    Next step will be issuing them body armor as they are leaving prison to lower homicide rate.
