Child Abusers Eligible for Immediate Release Under California’s New ‘No Cash Bail’ Rule

Under California’s new “no cash bail” rule, child abusers are now eligible for immediate release, according to FOX Los Angeles reporter Bill Melugin.

San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon told Melugin that the zero dollar cash bail law is forcing him to release hundreds of inmates, including some who have been convicted of serious felonies. 

The mandate went into effect last Monday after California’s Judicial Council issued an emergency rule ordering all misdemeanors and some low-level felonies to now have cash bail set at zero dollars, with 13 exceptions for serious and violent felonies. However, child abuse was not one of those exemptions.

“Felony child abuse does not fit into that list of 13, so even though this guy had a prior domestic violence conviction for child abuse, he gets arrested for child abuse again, and then he gets released on zero bail with a court date in July,” McMahon told FOX LA. “So that just doesn’t make any sense to me, maybe I’m missing something, but that doesn’t seem to me to be the right thing to do to protect the citizens of our county. If that person is in our custody, we can protect the victim, if he’s not, we can’t.”

The state issued the mandate in order to reduce inmate populations during the coronavirus epidemic, but Sheriff McMahon told FOX LA that San Bernardino County doesn’t have an overcrowding problem and that inmates are separated and required to wear masks. He added that too many dangerous people have already been allowed to return to society, where they could cause more harm.

“We’ve already started releasing those fresh arrests that weren’t on the list of 13,” Sheriff McMahon told Melugin. “The first night into Tuesday morning, there were 6 people arrested on felonies and were released on zero bail.”

A prosecutor in Los Angeles County confirmed that child abuse suspects are now eligible for immediate release in California under this new mandate. “You will go to jail if you spit on your spouse, but if you give your child a black eye, you’re free to go,” the unnamed prosecutor told FOX LA.

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
