Love Crime but Hate Jail? Move to Illinois!

By Ian Gargan

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.

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.

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

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………………………………

I’m 72 and I agree with you. I feel so sorry for innocent people who live in crime ridden blue States. I’m thankful I live in Texas. I pray Texas never becomes a blue State.

Hopefully all those moving there will not bring their radical politics with them. It only takes a little here and a little there. Keep watch!

Don’t worry, we don’t have another 20 years, perhaps not another 10. I was saying as many as 10 years ago that 2020 would be the beginning of the end and look what happened, COVID, lockdowns, riots, defund the police movement, skyrocketing crime rates, and to top it all off, a stolen election. Looks like I got it right.

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.

Theocracy or Communism, which would you prefer? Those who think “religion” with a moral code is so damaging might want to look at what is happening to our country right now. Religion isn’t the answer, serving almighty God is. We ALL must make a choice and that choice will affect us for ETERNITY.

Not allowed to protect yourself. You go to jail with bail you have to pay to get out.

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.

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

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.

I see what you’re saying, but those types are not classic “liberals.” They are Marxists.

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

Ha, law abiding liberals are so scared of their own shadows that they will just isolate or never go out after dark.

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.
