Love Crime but Hate Jail? Move to Illinois!

On January 1, 2023, the state of Illinois will allow an additional group of criminals access to the state’s existing cashless bail policy. The ironically named SAFE-T Act would end cash bail for a list of 12 additional offenses. The 700-page bill was voted on 40 minutes after being released.

The first offense on the list is aggravated battery. Aggravated battery occurs when you intend to harm another person with or without a weapon. Gun battery is also included under this umbrella, and as long as no shots are fired, you can pistol whip someone as many times as you like. Get arrested, taken into custody, and get out the next morning at a cost of zero dollars. The law also allows two chances to appear in court before a warrant is issued. This should give criminals plenty of time to relocate if that is the option they choose.  

Other cashless bail options for crime lovers in Illinois include arson, burglary, robbery, and kidnapping. When the police catch a kidnapper, lucky enough for them, they have a second chance. Same with robbery – if a store owner fights you off on Monday night, you can take some time and think about how you can execute your crime better tomorrow. Learn from your mistakes, regroup, and try again.

Another interesting aspect of the law is that anyone charged with threatening a public official will no longer be detained with bail. This puts judges (current and retired), commissioners, county clerks, and any elected official in a situation where they could be facing the same threat again a mere 24 hours later.  Luckily, Illinois does offer an emergency order of protection for situations like that. But if there is one thing we know about criminals, it’s that they don’t usually follow rules. So, the efficacy of this order of protection is about as good as the COVID vaccine.

Perhaps the most chilling crime on the cashless bail roster is second-degree murder. This is defined as the murder of another individual with a lack of premeditation. So, if the murder is committed impulsively, you’re in the clear and can be home in time to fly off the handle again. But what if you were only trying to cause another person immense bodily harm but hit them a little too hard with a shovel, cracking their skull and causing their death? No worries, you’re out of jail in no time and nobody is a dime poorer for it.

With states like California and New York vying for the title of Most Dangerous Liberal Utopia, they should be worried about Illinois being a serious contender. Where’s the incentive for the police to arrest these offenders knowing they will be released in short order? Who will protect you? Look in the mirror. When ruthless, cold-blooded gangs and mobs violently take over our neighborhoods and harm innocent people, we must see this as a wake-up call and vote out the dangerous socialists who bow to the failed policies of the democrats who legalize violent crime.

It breaks my heart to know that we’ve become a lawless nation. We need to be praying for Spiritual awakening in America and revival.

Careful there Steve, those kind-to-crooks procedures are only for career criminals. If you try something like taking the initiative to prevent crime, you will end up in a dungeon for over a year
, just like the poor folks who attended the January 6 gathering.

DIMMs always name bills just opposite of what they do! SAFE-T gives no safety. The “Inflation Reduction Act” will NOT reduce inflation. And the so-called Voters Act will corrupt the system more than it is now!

Why do the people of Illinois keep electing these corrupt politicians? These politicians have demonstrated their willingness to let crime flourish in all neighborhoods except their own.

The people of Illinois elected these people and in doing so stated they trusted these people to represent them. Not sure what the problem is? Can anyone clarify what the problem is?

But if organized crime (the real mobsters, not politicians) opened the book on crime betting, the FBI would be relentless

Oh, great! I live in California, where we are about one step behind Illinois. If our governor, Navin Gruesome, reads this ( or has someone else read it to him ) we’re in deep yogurt. Time for The People to step up and start defending ourselves, loved ones, friends, neighbors and communities in general. We’re our own last resort.

The evil, anti-anything-good, insane lefty proggy Commie Globalist Demoncrat evil traitors and their opposite names… the SAFE-T Act that GUARANTEES THE OPPOSITE is the maggot’s most egregious lie name yet! Of course, their brain-dead, hate-filled, lie-filled, deliberately DUMBED DOWN dolt USEFUL IDIOTS clap at every destructive act, and lie that falls from the traitor’s traitorous, totalitarian lips.

Can’t fix stupid, can’t fix evil spawn of satan demon people in positions of power, destroying our freedoms/opportunities Republic; if this c r * p isn’t stopped, we’re doomed.

Should we really expect much different from the state that gave US the most dangerous and deadly gangsters? Chicago is synonymous with crime.

Illinois is another state run by idiots. All good people should arm themselves for their own personal protection. We really need to exterminate the US of the liberals.

Notice how this starts on 1/1/23. They set up to take effect after the election and almost two years before the next.

Time for the police in Illinois, to join forces with the gang leaders to control the crime on the streets from hurting the general population, since the politicians seem to not care about the safety of their citizens.

When I was young, going to jail, much less prison, was something a person would want to keep ‘secret’. Even 20 years ago, jail birds felt no qualms about having been to prison. If a person doesn’t have self-respect, how can they be expected to respect others, the law or have any ethics. I don’t want to live in a theocracy, I see the dangers, but we need some sort of moral code people feel obliged to follow. A ship with no rudder can’t hold a course.

We are really turning this country into a third world country. In my 71 years on this Earth I have seen this country go downhill at a rapid rate. I’m glad I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s where things were quite beautiful and you didn’t have to worry about going outside to play and get kidnapped by a monster. It was a great life. I’m glad I will no longer be here in 20 years to see this disgusting turn of events. I shudder to think what it will be like. So sad………………………………

Illinois has for decades been a cesspool of politics. The state is destroying itself from within.

Yes, I live here, and those who “know” (ignorance is bliss) are aghast at what our representatives have done. The Cook county crowd (that’s where the power really lies) seem hellbent on destroying the “land of Lincoln.” An election is coming up, but how much of this is rigged? As a consequence many are voting with their feet. I’m not quite there…yet.

Donald Trump s first Presidential campaign rally in Phoenix. Donald Trump held his first campaign rally, since announcing his Republican candidacy for President, at the Phoenix Convention Center. The event was hosted by the Maricopa County Republican Party. Media outlets from all over the country converged in Phoenix to cover this event. Previously, Mr. Trump created a media firestorm with his comments about illegal immigration during his candidacy announcement. Thousands filled the north ballroom of the convention center to see Trump and hear him speak. The event was scheduled to be held at the Arizona Biltmore, but the requests for tickets were so great the event had to be moved to the larger venue. Opponents held a peaceful protest outside the center. Trump s slogan is Make America Great Again.
