Law Enforcement Groups Support Cotton-Kennedy Amendment to Criminal Justice Reform Bill

WFB: Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) and Sen. John Kennedy (R., La.) announced Friday that several law enforcement and victims’ rights groups support their amendment to criminal justice reform legislation being considered in the Senate.

Cotton has been one of the FIRST STEP Act‘s fiercest opponents, and he said Friday that further changes are needed to “ensure that no violent sex offenders can be eligible for any type of early release.”

“I’m pleased that major law enforcement groups support our amendments to exclude violent felons and sex offenders from early release, notify victims before criminals are released, and to measure whether the First Step Act works. Next week, the Senate will vote on these amendments. I urge my colleagues to support these changes to ensure that no violent sex offenders can be eligible for any type of early release,” Cotton said in a press release.

Kennedy said the bill should not be pushed through Congress before made right.  read more

  1. Now with CAMS all over, documented assaults, DNA (well maybe),,,
    Is it not the time to bring back the Death Penalty to stop early release. A real way is to stop it is what side of the grass these cretins walk on.
    But as always the taxpayers will fund whatever we decide,,,

  2. This thing was cooked up by Trump’s son in law Cushner. You can be certain it’s basic concepts are liberal minded and therefore flawed. More innocent people are sure to pay for it in blood.

  3. ‘no violent sex offenders’. huh? Great words for politicians to create. The definition will be determined by??? If you rape someone and did not do it violently, it’s OK!
    Still think reps and dems are different?
    Correcting previous post:
    But as always the taxpayers will fund whatever we politicians decide what’s right and wrong,,,
    You got a problem with that?
    Just ask the Clintons, or Bushes, just not the Obamas.

  4. Will probably be modified to allow persons of color, illegal aliens, and the homo-fag community to be exempt leaving us poor white deplorables to bear the burden.

    I say if our courts and judges were righteous and upright to begin with we wouldn’t have this problem.And if murderers were actually punished instead of plea bargained…

  5. Haven’t read the Bill (and prolly wouldn’t understand it, if I did) but it’s more than likely a political sop to the nihilistic/socialists of both parties as a bargaining chip. People used as pawns and the taxpayers getting fucked, again.

    Maybe I’m a tad cynical – but “High Profile” legislation never seems to turn out as touted.
    If they (House and Senate) made corruption a capital offense, then I might believe some of their bullshit.

  6. Throw out all misdemeanor convictions on marijuana, scrub their records clean, and make it illegal for anyone to possess those records thereafter. No need to ever list it on any private or government job application, and illegal to ask about it.

    Get people back to work, not on welfare, and move on from this policy that is nothing but a money-grab for the legal industrial complex.
