Green River Killer Almost Released : We recently reported that California had released several high-level sex offenders from prison simply because they feared they’d get Coronavirus. “High Level” means they are likely to re-offend. Well some of them did just that in fact.
This trend has been happening all over America, in mostly Blue states, at an alarming rate.
Green River Killer Almost Released : 71 murders. Why is his safety more important than ours?
Just recently, Gary Ridgway, also known as “The Green River Killer” was set to be released from prison due to fears of catching the virus. Ridgway confessed to killing 71 women from 1982–1998 (confirmed, but could be as recent as 2001). He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
So now tell me why anyone in their right mind would let someone out of prison because they’re afraid they’ll get sick, when they are very likely to cause harm to another if they do?
Do you think the child molesters in prison don’t fantasize about what they did every single day?
Do you think Gary Ridgway hasn’t been reliving his kills over and over in his mind ever since he got locked up?
Well, the decision went to the courts this time about whether Ridgway would be let out. I can’t believe it got that far, but it did.
Green River Killer Almost Released : 5-4 vote
Those narrowly missing a shot at freedom included Gary Ridgway, the so-called “Green River Killer,” who in 2003 was sentenced to life in prison after confessing to killing as many as 49 women in the 1980s, Seattle’s KIRO radio reported.
A lawyer representing the inmates being considered for release – about two-thirds of the state’s prison population, according to KIRO – argued that those behind bars aren’t able to keep themselves safe from the virus. He said those inmates who were elderly, in poor health or very close to their release date should be set free, Q13 FOX of Seattle reported.
“We can all hold out in our homes. We can decide who we allow into our homes,” lawyer Nicholas Straley said. “People in prison do not have that option.”
Green River Killer Almost Released : At least there’s one sane person on our side
Assistant Attorney General John Samson, arguing against the mass release, told the court that inmates had received face masks and separated sleep spaces, and the corrections department had conducted virus testing on 300 inmates and released some offenders.
