One Third Of Jail Inmates Nationwide Set Free in Unprecedented Coronavirus Jailbreak

A new study reveals that almost a third of county jail inmates have been set free from the facilities during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Prison Policy Initiative study has determined that 32% of inmates at county jails have been set free.

In the last two months, local governments across the U.S. have drastically reduced their jail populations to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The typical jail has reduced its population by more than 30%.

One of them killed after CO released him. Chitty way for the bleeding hearts to get criminals out of jail illegally.

If you are the county sheriff the last thing you want is a pandemic killing off your inmates. Everyone of them that needs healthcare is on your budget. Sick prisoners make the staff sick. The only people who should be released are the non violent ones. IMO the nonviolent people getting released from jail should be told this is your one chance. If you commit a crime you go back to jail.

Yep. Unlike prisons, most county jails don't have any real medical facilities, so the inmates have to go to outside hospitals, plus, it's pretty easy to let people out of the county jail, unlike sentenced felons.

If you can't do the time don't do the crime.

"F" em if they get sick in prison. Should they be released if they get a cavity in their tooth in prison? That's on the sherriff's budget too you know.

You keep apologizing about this in every thread about this topic.

They should just lock the front gate, surround the wall with machine guns and the open all the cells. Set dead wire around the inside and any one crosses it gun them down.

Could just thrown a dead calf over the wall on Sunday.

If they get sick in prison every dime of their hospital cost is on the government. You don't get to just let them die. I don't have any love for career criminals but the courts have set some high standards for their care.
If I had my way most petty criminals would get a fine the first time and a beating with a piece of bamboo on the second offense.
Any time I have supported the release of people in jail it has been for non violent offenders with the idea that it is not a license to commit more crime. I do not support the release of violent criminals or those that are habitual offenders.

Not sure I understand the logic behind letting prisoners out because of the virus. Should we keep them in jail where their quarantined, or let them out into the public where they can spread the virus? Just don't understand the logic.
