Last year, California’s Gov. Newsom announced that he was dismantling Death Row, providing relief to monsters like the “Grim Sleeper” serial killer who killed nine women, the “Yosemite Killer,” and Charles Ng, who raped, tortured, and killed unknown numbers of women.
New York Democrats have decided to go one better by offering parole to serial killers.
The campaign, promoted by celebrities like Common and John Legend, could set the worst monsters in prison loose on a city and state already drowning in crime.
Senate Bill S2423, known to its backers as Elder Parole, eliminates life sentences by offering parole to all prisoners regardless of how horrific their crimes may have been.
Any murderer, rapist, or pedophile over the age of 55, who spent at least 15 years in prison, will be automatically eligible for parole under a pro-crime bill that has 33 state senate co-sponsors.
Potential parolees could include the “Son of Sam” serial killer, mass shooter Colin “Black Rage” Ferguson, and Richard “Angel of Death” Angelo, a nurse who poisoned dozens of patients. Even if these monsters aren’t paroled immediately, numberless other killers, rapists and pedophiles will be set loose.
After New York Democrats abolished bail and set out to free as many criminals as possible, homicide rates and all crime rates shot up. Many of the Democrat legislators proposing to end life sentences and free serial killers had also backed previous pro-crime measures like the “Less is More Act” which put more convicts back on the street and kept them there.
Charles Rowe (pictured above) raped and stabbed to death a 10-year-old girl; after being paroled he went on a crime spree, but he was kept on the street thanks to Gov. Hochul and the Democrat “Less is More Act,” until he sexually assaulted a 69-year-old woman.
“Let’s not turn this into a murder,” Rowe told his victim.
Not satisfied with the massive increase in crime since the wave of pro-crime laws were unrolled, New York Democrats are on a mission to free every single criminal in prison. Literally.
Senate Bill 2423 or Elder Parole complains that “New York State holds the shameful distinction of having the third-largest population of people serving terms of life imprisonment in the country.” The victims that Elder Parole is lobbying for include not only Son of Sam, but John Jamelske, who ran a house of horrors in his homemade dungeon, and Joel Rifkin, who dismembered women and scattered their parts across parts of New York and New Jersey.
There’s also Calvin Jackson, who murdered nine women in Manhattan and then sexually assaulted their corpses. Jackson is black, making him one of the “disproportionately black and Latinx” monsters that the Democrat pro-crime Elder Parole bill claims are “aging rapidly behind bars.”
Sen. Brad Hoylman-Sigal, who is responsible for the proposal to free all the serial killers, does not believe that it’s “shameful” that these crimes were committed against innocent women or that it took so long to catch these monsters; he only believes that it’s shameful that we keep them locked up instead of setting them loose so they can strangle and dismember more women.
“There is a growing consensus among people across the political spectrum that mass incarceration is ineffective, flawed, and racially biased,” Sen. Hoylman-Sigal’s bill argues. That pro-crime consensus among leftists and libertarians has already led to thousands of added deaths over the past few years. Murder rates continue rising nationwide while pro-crime Democrats like Hoylman-Sigal argue that we just haven’t freed enough monsters.
The pro-crime Democrats backing the Elder Parole bill claim that their bill isn’t meant to free serial killers and the worst offenders, but whom exactly do they think is serving life sentences?
Had they wanted to exclude serial killers, murderers, and pedophiles, all they had to do was add a few words to their bill. Sen. Hoylman-Sigal and pro-crime Democrats chose not to do so because they want to provide the Son of Sam and every other monster with a chance at parole.
And if they don’t get paroled on their first try, they will automatically be able to reapply “no more than 24 months later.” Go through parole hearings often enough and something may give. Just ask Sirhan Sirhan, Robert F. Kennedy’s killer, who was recommended for parole in 2021.
New York Democrats could have chosen to limit the scope of the Elder Parole bill by excluding murderers, serial killers or child rapists. They didn’t do that because they wanted them to have a chance at parole. Why? It’s right there in the bill. They oppose “mass incarceration.”
The pro-crime bill contains no mention of victims except for the name of the committee responsible for this abomination: the Senate Crime Victims, Crime And Correction Committee.
Sen. Brad Hoylman-Sigal and his pro-crime allies announced the launch of the Elder Parole bill at a session with Release Aging People in Prison Campaign (RAPP). And afterward? RAPP’s site contains a proposal titled, “The Next Step: Ending Excessive Punishment for Violent Crimes” in order to “end mass incarceration.” Life sentences are considered “excessive.”
The ultimate goal of the pro-crime movement is to free all the criminals, to eliminate police and prisons, and turn everyone who isn’t a criminal into a victim. This endgame is to be achieved through incremental measures like freeing “non-violent offenders” and then violent offenders over 55 and then all criminals. A growing list of crimes will be decriminalized. Police will be replaced with pro-crime social workers, prisons with “restorative justice” and public safety with perpetual terror. That is what “ending mass incarceration” and “defunding police” really means.
There will still be some crimes punishable with the harshest sentences. Just ask former Marine Daniel Penny who put his life on the line to stop deranged subway psycho Jordan Neely.
In a society of criminals run for the benefit of criminals, self-defense is the only crime.
Gov. Hochul and New York’s Democrat Senate and Assembly legislative majority under pro-crime politicians like Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Assembly Speaker Carl E. Heastie will quickly roll out the end of life sentences and parole for the worst criminals the way that they have every previous piece of pro-crime legislation.
New York will become even more violent and dangerous. Innocent people will be robbed, beaten and killed by the criminals whom the Democrats have set loose on the populace.
And if you happen to spot the Son of Sam or the Angel of Death while riding the A train, try not to make eye contact. They might take it personally.
