(Tea Party 247) – Perhaps one of the most troubling consequences of the lockdowns and virus hysteria has been the early release of very dangerous criminals. These convicts aren’t getting out of jail and miraculously turning a new leaf. Many of them are going right back to leading the very lifestyles that got them put in jail to begin with.
One Virginia man who was jailed for violent sexual assault was set free earlier this year because of coronavirus “concerns.” He went on to murder his sexual assault victim outside her apartment, according to reports.
Newswars reports that “Ibrahim E. Bouaichi, 33, was released from jail on April 9 on a $25,000 bond despite objections from a prosecutor. He was in the middle of serving a sentence for five felonies, including rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction and burglary of his former girlfriend, Karla Dominguez.”
He sure sounds like someone we want walking the streets because of a virus with a 99% survival rate. Consequently, the murder of Dominguez happened in Alexandria, Virginia on July 29th.
The Washington Post has more:
Alexandria police said they received a report of gunshots on July 29, and at 6:20 a.m. they found Dominguez outside her apartment, dead of multiple wounds to the upper body.
After the murder, Bouaichi went missing for days. Police issued a warrant for murder and asked for the public’s assistance locating him, warning he was “armed and dangerous.”
Then on Wednesday morning, federal marshals and Alexandria police spotted Bouaichi in Prince George’s County and pursued him, causing Bouaichi to crash, authorities said. When the police went to arrest Bouaichi, they found he had apparently shot himself. He was reported to be in grave condition Thursday.
Bouiachi is currently in critical condition and his release is being regarded as one of the greatest botches of the coronavirus lockdown.
Lawyers at the time argued keeping Bouaichi in jail would lead to him being infected, saying “social distancing and proper disinfecting measures are impossible while incarcerated.… Simply put, the risk of contracting Covid-19 in a jail is exceedingly obvious.” And, naturally, the health and safety of violent felons should be something highly regarded by society.
What would keep people out of jail and therefore at a lower risk for contracting the mostly harmless COVID-19 virus would be obeying the law. It’s obvious jail was exactly where Bouiachi deserved to be and needed to be. The risk of him catching the coronavirus was apparently of greater concern to the court than the risk of further harm coming to his victim. The court has Dominguez’s blood on their hands.
To add the preposterousness of it all, according to a jail spokesperson, “there were no cases of covid-19 at the jail during their client’s incarceration,” reports the Post.
In a surprising twist, following his April 11 release, Bouiachi was also arrested in Greenbelt, Maryland, on May 8 after police found him in a Wendy’s drive-thru lane intoxicated and unruly.
More from the Post:
…the driver was uncooperative, “may have been intoxicated, and wouldn’t communicate with the officers. He then put his vehicle in drive and rammed the K-9 officer’s vehicle,” which an officer and a police dog were sitting in. The officers eventually took him into custody, at which point Bouaichi reported having a medical issue. He was taken to a hospital, and eventually to the Prince George’s jail, where he was served multiple charges: two counts of first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, harming a law enforcement dog, resisting arrest, driving while intoxicated and multiple traffic charges.
He was released 4 days later because, you know, COVID.
What an absolute tragedy.
