A headline from today.
“How the City Failed Three Men Who Died of COVID-19 in Jail: Watchdog.”
Three. Count ’em three.
Meanwhile, there have been between 800 to 1,200 deaths in Bronx nursing homes. That’s a mostly minority borough. The deaths would predominantly lean toward minorities.
Where’s the article on How the City and State Failed the 798 Nursing Home Patients Who Died in the Bronx.
Nowhere to be found. But 3 deaths in jail trigger outrage. This has been the pattern throughout the pandemic with Democrats politicians focusing on protecting criminals by releasing them while engaging in the manslaughter of the elderly.
Over 3,000 criminals have been freed from New York State prisons to protect them from the virus, and New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio freed 1,500 criminals, and they swiftly began committing a variety of crimes, but despite the media hype claiming that prison was a death sentence and a campaign by woke celebs like John Legend, criminals were not at risk.
Only 19 inmates in New York State actually died of the virus.
Meanwhile an estimated 11,000 nursing home patients have died of the virus statewide.
In California, Governor Newsom ordered skilled nursing facilities to accept infected patients. The next month, 3,500 criminals were freed. By the fall, over 9,000 criminals had been freed, with a plan to release as many as 17,600 criminals. After an ACLU lawsuit, Orange County was ordered to free 1,800 violent inmates whom Sheriff Barnes described as “people in for very serious offenses — murder, attempted murder, domestic violence.”
96 California State prison inmates have died in the pandemic alongside an official death toll of 5,940 nursing home residents.
But the lives of nearly 6,000 nursing home patients mattered less than the lives of 96 criminals.
Criminals are a civil rights priority for Democrats and their media. Meanwhile, seniors can drop dead. Literally.
