Kentucky Lawmaker to Crack Down on Bail Groups after BLM Frees Quintez Brown for $100k

Liberal lawmakers and Attorney Generals in Democrat-controlled cities are passing detrimental legislation putting criminals, and repeat offenders, back on the streets. Now a Kentucky state lawmaker wants to implement legislation that will do the opposite, particularly after a high-profile case this week that made national headlines.

21-year-old Quintez Brown was charged with attempted murder after walking into the campaign office of Democratic mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg, who is Jewish, and opening fire on Monday. By Wednesday, a project of Black Lives Matter Louisville and the Louisville Community Bali Fund had posted $100,000 full cash bail.

CBS WKLY Kentucky reported “State lawmaker Jason Nemes has already filed House Bill 313 to outlaw such bail groups. He now says he will change his bill to regulate them more tightly, and prevent them from posting bonds for certain offenses or dollar amounts.”

Greenberg sent a statement to WLKY after Brown’s release which stated “our criminal justice system is clearly broken. It is nearly impossible to believe that someone can attempt murder on Monday and walk out of jail on Wednesday.”

Fortunately, Greenberg was not injured; police say he was targeted in the attack but a bullet only grazed his sweater. Brown also faces four counts of wanton endangerment because four other individuals were in the room at the time of the shooting.

CNN+ host Rex Chapman was one of the donors for Black Lives Matter Louisville and the bail fund. Last month CNN announced Chapman will be getting his own show on the network’s upcoming streaming service. Chapman pushed sales for Black Lives Matter merchandise at least four separate times in 2020 after the George Floyd protests rocked the nation.

Nemes is also planning to change the Bill so that such organizations that let out Brown are required to disclose their donors and who they post bond for.

    Liberals hypocritically spout that the protesters that paraded around the Capitol on Jan 6 are a threat to democracy. Some are still be held in confinement. But yet this person, Quintez Brown, who is a real threat to democracy is let free. Equal justice under the law is being denied to Americans.

Florida Gov Signs Law Making It Illegal To Protest Outside An Individual’s Home

Published

Ron DeSantis

On Monday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that makes it a crime to protest outside an individual’s home.

“Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate,” DeSantis said. “This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law.”

The law will go into effect on October 1, and once “this law takes effect, law enforcement officers will provide a warning to any person picketing or protesting outside of a dwelling and will make arrests for residential picketing only if the person does not peaceably disperse after the warning. Residential picketing will be punishable as a second-degree misdemeanor,” DeSantis’ office explained.

“It is unlawful for a person to picket or protest before or about the dwelling of any person with the intent to harass or disturb that person in his or her dwelling,” the text of the bill says. “Before a person may be arrested for a violation of this section, a law enforcement officer… or a local, state, federal, or military law enforcement agency must go as near to the person as may be done with safety and shall command any person picketing or protesting before or about the dwelling of a person to immediately and peaceably disperse. If any such person does not thereupon immediately and peaceably disperse, he or she may be arrested for a violation of this section.”

The new law comes in response to leftist protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices following the leak of a draft of a Supreme Court majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to Politico.

“Roughly 100 protesters appeared outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house, where they carried signs and chanted slogans before walking a half-mile to Chief Justice John Roberts’s home, then back to Kavanaugh’s home, where police ordered them to leave the area,” The Washington Examiner reported last week.

SCOTUS Rules Federal Courts Do Not Have Power To Decide If Illegals Will Be Deported

Published

Supreme Court

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that federal courts do not have the jurisdiction to decide whether noncitizens will be deported or allowed to stay in the country.

The case involved a couple from India — Pankajkumar Patel and his wife, Jyotsnaben, — who illegally entered the United States in the 1990s. They applied for “adjustment of status,” which would have made them both lawful permanent residents. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) denied their request after finding out that Patel intentionally falsely claimed he was a United States citizen in a Georgia driver’s license application.

Justice Amy Coney Barrett wrote the majority opinion for The Court and Justice Neil Gorsuch joining the three leftist justices in dissent.

“Congress has comprehensively detailed the rules by which noncitizens may enter and live in the United States. When noncitizens violate those rules, Congress has provided procedures for their removal,” Barrett wrote. “At the same time, there is room for mercy: Congress has given the Attorney General power to grant relief from removal in certain circumstances.”

“Federal courts have a very limited role to play in this process,” Barrett continued. “With an exception for legal and constitutional questions, Congress has barred judicial review of the Attorney General’s decisions denying discretionary relief from removal. We must decide how far this bar extends—specifically, whether it precludes judicial review of factual findings that underlie a denial of relief. It does.”

The Court ruled that “Federal courts lack jurisdiction to review facts found as part of discretionary-relief proceedings.”
