SAFE-T Act Amended

From The Center Square:

After changes to SAFE-T Act, law enforcement agencies have weeks to ‘reset’

(The Center Square) – Members of Illinois’ law enforcement community are having to reset with less than a month to go before for the implementation of a law that would eliminate cash bail statewide.

State lawmakers approved changes to the SAFE-T Act Thursday before leaving for the rest of the calendar year. Changes include a list of serious crimes that defendants can be held on before trial.

During debate, Republicans pointed out problems they say remain. State Sen. Neil Anderson, R-Andalusia, said the whole thing has been flawed from the beginning.

“I’m going to give you a little prediction about how it’s gonna go from here. You pass bad policy. We point it out. You call us fear mongers. Now, people are on to you and you say ‘oh … we better fix that,” Anderson said.

Democrats said passing amendments to laws is what legislators do. Supporters of ending cash bail say people are innocent until proven guilty and shouldn’t have to languish behind bars because they can’t afford bail.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has yet to sign the changes into law.

“I’m pleased that the General Assembly has upheld the principles we fought to protect, including bringing an end to a system where those charged with violent offenses can buy their way out of jail, while others who are poor and charged with nonviolent offenses wait in jail for trial,” Pritzker said in a statement.

As of Friday, the amendments had not been advanced to the governor’s desk. Regardless, no cash bail without the amendments begins Jan. 1.

Illinois Sheriffs’ Association Executive Director Jim Kaitschuk said law enforcement were already gearing up for the Pretrial Fairness Act before the changes lawmakers approved.

“And now there’s going to be kind of a reboot on that to see how these changes affect the different policies and practices that we were going to put in place in January,” Kaitschuk told The Center Square.

Adding to the pressures in the final weeks of the year is a lawsuit dozens of state’s attorneys and sheriffs have against the law’s implementation to be heard next week in Kankakee County.

  1. Fatso Gov. must figure out if the psuedo amendments help or hurt his chances to become the first jewish president.

    Since the monsters running Washington, London and Tel Aviv are going to resort to nukes and or more biowarfare to stop the slide if Ukraine into the abyss, Fatso’s calculations are rather pointless.

  2. No list available of what serious crimes will now NOT be part of this “get out of jail” free card?

    With Fatty not signing it yet, and as it stands come Jan 1 the County Jails will be clearing out the; aggravated DUI’s (killed someone), Second degree murderers, Arsonists, Trespassers, etc? …..

    Taddleman time for Jail layoffs, have your Union guys thank a Dem for it.

  3. There was an article out a day or so ago that Putin is quite ill, fell and couldn’t get up, and shit his pants.

  4. Monk just change your handle to shit my pants. The shit comes out of your fingers with every post.

  5. Or this funny nonsense published in the March ’05 Atlantic:

    Connors has shown footage of Putin’s walk to a range of experts, including A. Thomas Pezzella, a cardiac-thoracic surgeon based in St. Louis; two orthopedic surgeons and a physical therapist at the naval hospital in Newport; and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, the founder of the School for Body-Mind Centering, in Amherst, Massachusetts, who is certified as something called a neurodevelopmental therapist. They offer a variety of conjectures:

    Putin could have had a stroke, perhaps suffered in utero; he may be afflicted with, as Pezzella speculates, an Erb’s palsy, caused by a forceps tugging on his right shoulder at birth; he could have had polio as a child (polio was epidemic in Europe and western Russia after World War II).

    The stroke theory is consistent with what appears to be the loss of neural sensation in the fingers of his right hand. (Videotape of Putin at judo matches shows him using his fist, rather than a splayed hand, to push himself up off the mat.)

    Based on what she has seen and on her consultation with other experts, Connors doubts that Putin ever crawled as an infant; he seems to lack what is called contra-lateral movement and instead tends to move in a head-to-tail pattern, like a fish or a reptile.

  6. Look at exactly WHO was behind this monstrous legislation. Legislation that favors criminals and punks.
    It was of course Democrats. THEY, DEMOCRATS, favor the criminals and thugs over citizens who are victims of crime.

    As always. Never, ever, ever trust any, any Democrat on anything. They are intentionally wanting to destroy America.

  7. Nope. If Biden shit his pants we’d hear about it.

    Just like if someone had proof of a stolen election.

  8. OMG. You are a nitwit! It’s been shouted from the rooftops! You must be a bot.

  9. Lepred…the Atlantic is owned by Steve Jobs widow who is good friends with Ghislane Maxwell. Don’t believe a word in that propaganda rag.

    Monk, tell us all you know about Matt Taibbi and his disclosure this weekend.

    Cindy, I tend to agree. Being high on dope all day makes the fool read like a bot.

  10. Cindy, take note. Have you caught on yet that the mockingbird MSM is now replacing the phrase “election denier” with the phrase “subverting the constitution”? I wonder why? Well the hypocrisy of the left has been exposed especially in the case of the new minority leader Hakeem Jefferies. Subverting the constitution is just another projection of what the deep state has been doing and they are now claiming it’s Trump and not them that are doing it.
