Liberals bail out violent offenders

Empower Wisconsin | July 8, 2020

MADISON  — At the risk of roasting in hell or having demons consume my entrails, I must report some important facts: People accused of gun violence in Dane County are now free on bail and walking the streets thanks to a well-funded radical leftist group.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Department on Monday issued a press release noting that “Free the 350,” an activist group dedicated to freeing black inmates from the Dane County Jail, recently bailed out: 

  • Kenyairra Gadson, 23, of Madison. Her bail was set at $100,000. 
  • Dorian Watkins, 20, of Madison. His bail was set at $20,000. 
  • Tywaun Reynolds, 20, Madison. His bail was set at $13,500.

Madison talk show host Vicki McKenna reported the press release on Twitter. 

Gadson was being held in the Dane County Jail on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon, and possession of a firearm as a felon. She originally was arrested in 2018 after Madison’s Freakfest and charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the shooting death of a 21-year-old man at the Frances Street Garage. 

Watkins was arrested in March on charges of armed robbery, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, and bail-jumping. In fact, he has many, many violations of bail jumping on his record. 

Reynolds was awaiting trial on charges of burglary to a building and theft of moveable property. He has been through the Dane County revolving door system of justice many times, on charges of cocaine possession, possession of a firearm as a felon and bail jumping.” 

The social justice warriors at “Free the 350” note on their Facebook page that theirs is a “community effort to free Black people. The fund brings together organizations and individuals to support people’s needs and build community so that incarceration can be dismantled.”

Apparently protecting the public from dangerous criminals who give little thought to obtaining and using firearms as felons isn’t part of the well-funded Free the 350’s mission statement. 

Madison’s liberal useful idiot leaders, of course, have turned the keys to the city over to the militant left. So, no surprise, the radicals are upset with the Dane County Sheriff Office’s “unusual” press release. 

“Apparently the Sheriff’s Office is unfamiliar with the fundamental legal principle of presumption of innocence and the constitutional right to bail,” Dane County Supervisor Heidi Wegleitner wrote in a Facebook message to Madison365. 

Presumption of innocence, is of course, a selective concept for the left, which, in this case, has ignored the concepts of public safety, violent criminal pasts, and a history of bail jumping. 

“I don’t recall a DCSO press release regarding a bail release for any White people lately. Do you? The Free the 350 Bail Fund has been doing incredible work to release Black people from Dane County jail who are stuck there only because they lack the resources to be released.” 

“‘Free the 350’ has and continues to accuse the criminal justice system of denying to release ‘non-violent’ individuals on low bail from jail,” Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney wrote in an email to Madison365, adding that the department has released the names of inmates feed on bonds in the past. “Well the community should know who they are contributing dollars to for bail and who is getting released.” 

The unhinged left attacked the sheriff’s department for alerting the public. 

“Thank you for the free press, Dane County Sherriff’s Office. The people you identify have not been convicted of a single one of the crimes you mention,” the ballot or the boogaloo tweeted. “You will roast in hell for this. Demons will consume your entrails. Your bodies will be tortured until the end of days.”
