State shouldn’t release inmates due to coronavirus

Editor:

I read an article in the Washington Post today that said, “Thousands of inmates released as jails face coronavirus threat.”

This is another example of the bleeding hearts in this country that will use any excuse to further their agenda to let felons back on our streets. A New York State Parole Board just released this month an inmate that in 1976 raped and murdered a young girl in Medina.

According to law he has to be released to the county in which he committed the crime for that county to bear the costs involved in supporting him. The politicians we elect set policy and staff these parole boards and our taxes support them. This is just another example of our tax money being wasted.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want any felons back on my street, especially not ones that committed rape and murder. I have a wife, daughter and granddaughters that I’m worried about. Do you?
