Harrisburg, PA: John Fetterman, the Democratic Senate candidate for Pennsylvania, is taking back comments he made in recent years about his plan to pursue the release of all second degree murderers in the PA state penitentiary system- nearly 1200 inmates.
Like several democrats across the country, Fetterman is pulling back on ultra-progressives ideas (like defunding the police) as public sentiment slowly shifts back in favor to keep the bad guys where they belong, behind bars.
Many democratic cities across the country, like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles are still dealing with a wave of violent crime across their respective cities. New soft-on-crime and quick release after arrest policies are sending violent criminals with long criminal histories back into the streets, only to commit another crime in short time.
Fetterman was keen on the idea of letting these murderers and showed a great degree of sympathy for the offenders. more here
