The accurate name for "criminal justice reform" is pro-crime.
According to Garden Grove cops, the Hispanic gang member who stabbed and slashed 4 people to death, in California was a thug with a history of violence who should never have been freed, and was only set loose due to Assembly Bill 109.
Also known as the The Public Safety Realignment Act.
"This suspect is identified as Zachary Castaneda, who has been identified as a documented gang member," the Garden Grove police chief announced. "This person should have been imprisoned and not allowed to be in our community committing these violent acts."
"Based on his prior arrest record, he is a violent individual who should never have been considered for early release based on Assembly Bill 109."
"As a police chief, I implore our policymakers to reevaluate their policies on criminal justice. The pendulum has swung so far that it is difficult to keep our communities safe from the rise in violent crime."
"California law enforcement agencies have been crippled by Assembly Bill 109. And offenders are not being held accountable for their crimes. Our community becomes vulnerable when these criminals are released back into our society and are able to commit further crimes."
Part of this stems from the disastrous Brown v. Plata decision by Breyer, Sotomayor, Kagan, Ginsburg and Kennedy who once again have blood on their black robes.
Here's what the scene of those murders looked like.
He was armed with "some sort of machete knives" when he confronted the woman, Whitney said.
The woman "was very brave," Whitney said. "She fought as best she could."
An alarm company saw the robbery on a live television feed and called police.
"They could see that the female victim was on the ground with blood and multiple injuries," Whitney said.
Shortly after 6 p.m., the attacker drove up to a Chevron station, where he attacked a man pumping gas "for no reason," Whitney said. "There was no robbery."
The man was stabbed in the back and "his nose was nearly severed off his face," the lieutenant said. Bystanders rushed to help the man, he said.
Thank you, "Notorious RGB". and "criminal justice reform" activists.
