Letter to the Editor:
What ever happened to the old saying, "If you can't do the time, don't do the crime?" In the liberal bastion of Massachusetts criminal accountability has been erased by elected social justice warriors such as our own state senator Julian Cyr. Their passion is for criminal rights rather than victim rights, and their policies reflect it. Even though Massachusetts has one of the lowest incarceration rates, they are convinced it is racially biased and must be "reformed". (AKA - release the inmates.)
We saw this misguided perception of a racially biased justice system from Obama. His school diversion program ultimately shielded Nikolas Cruz from arrest and allowed him to buy the gun that killed 17.
In Massachusetts we are just starting to reap the benefits from our liberal elected official's labor transforming our criminal justice system. It's now common after a violent crime to find out the career criminal who committed the act should have never been released from incarceration. In each aftermath, our government leaders responsible for our justice system take no responsibility for it's failure.
Kevin Quinn was a Marine Veteran and brand new father as of last Wednesday. He didn't deserve to die. Mickey Rivera had a history of violent prior offenses including masked home invasion, and armed assault. He was due back in court this week for armed robbery and witness intimidation. He was free on bail to kill Kevin Quinn because our justice system lowered his bail from $35,000 to $1,000. Why? How does this reflect the will of the people?
