Pandering big-city politicians apparently still haven’t figured out that letting violent criminals out of prison during an economic downturn, and then not just asking, but demanding, that they wear masks whenever they’re in public is a recipe for disaster. But just in case you, dear reader, have recently started to question the progressive orthodoxy that imprisoning criminals during a pandemic is deeply unethical, here’s the New York Daily News to remind you just how badly treated prisoners are.
The mainstream press and “liberal” publications would have readers sympathize with the prisoners, and rationalize the riot as an uprising prompted by COVID-19 outbreaks, and the strict measures adopted to prevent them. Prisoners have taken to rioting for better treatment. During a particularly deadly prison riot in San Diego yesterday afternoon (California’s prison system is notorious throughout the US for the ruthless gangs that run the state’s pens) a group of 20 prisoners surrounded and attacked six prison guards in broad daylight.
While the Daily News report offered scant details on the assault, it’s fair to say that the temporarily dominant prisoners savagely bludgeoned and stabbed the group of officers.
