On Tuesday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends”, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) spoke about the Waukesha Christmas Parade massacre. The suspect had been released on $ 1,000 bond at the time of the tragedy.
Johnson questioned the capture and release policy used at the southern border and through the criminal justice system. He said Democrats “encourage” anarchy.
“Well, it was a horrible tragedy, and it’s part of the tragedy – that it probably never should have happened,” Johnson said. “We really need to review our criminal justice system. It looks like we’ve entered this argument now with the left that they want a revolving door. They want catches and releases, whether it’s on the southern border or through our criminal justice system. And so now you have crime spilling out of high crime areas into communities like Waukesha which, you know listen, there’s still crime in Waukesha, but it’s a low crime area in general. And so, it’s starting to spill over, and people have to start asking questions about our criminal justice system releasing violent criminals. “
“It is a problem of the left,” he added. “It’s funded in part by George Soros, but Eric Holder and a number of Democratic leaders have encouraged it. … They will never admit it; they’ll never admit they’re wrong, and, sadly, media and social media is the communications department of Democrats. They will never admit they are wrong, and they have the power to make sure they are not wrong. It is therefore a war of cultures. Let’s call it that: it’s a culture war. And the left is on the side of that kind of anarchy, whether it be President Biden or President Obama issuing executive orders that are totally against the law until this capture and release of our criminal justice system and the southern border. We need order. We cannot continue to live in this type of chaos.
