Under Barack Hussein O, the Justice Department has grown dangerously extreme. Last week, they filed a court brief that proves it.
In an obscure case in Georgia, a man was jailed for public intoxication. He was held for six days because he didn’t come up with the $160 in bail money.
Then Obama’s DOJ got involved. In their filing with a federal appeals court, the Regime argued that holding perps in jail because they can’t make bail is unconstitutional.
In a friend-of-the-court brief, the Regime argued that incarcerating poor people before trial “solely because of their inability to pay for their release” violates the 14th Amendment. The “equal protection” clause.
The Regime says a system that only releases those who can afford bail “unlawfully” discriminates on the basis of “indigence.” No other Administration in American history has come up with such a ridiculous definition of bail.
Here’s what this could mean. A murderer, rapist, or bank robber gets apprehended. Normally, the judge would set bail. But in Barack Obama’s and Loretta Lynch’s world, the perp could automatically get a literal “get-out-of-jail free” card. If they’re poor. Setting them free to prey on society again, while waiting for trial.
This is Obama’s leftism. Radical. Dangerous. Extreme liberalism. And if Hillary Clinton is elected you’ll get more of this. But with even more corruption!
