Remember when Kamala Harris promoted a bail fund that helped released people arrested for rioting, and some of them were convicted criminals, with at least one we know had a violent history? And she’s going to be the vice president in six days. Well, that bail fund is refusing to show the records of the people it helped release from jail so that they could get back on the streets to terrorize more businesses and innocent people during the Black Lives Matter riots in Minnesota.
Back in June, as Democrat cities across the country were being swarmed with violence, unrest, looting, murder, arson, and a bunch of other crimes in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, only two months prior to Harris being selected by Joe Biden to be his running mate, she tweeted out a link to the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF), an organization founded in 2016 by a University of Minnesota student named Simon Cecil. The group claims to “pay criminal bail and immigration bonds for those who cannot otherwise afford to.”
The MFF got a reported cash dump in the tens of millions of dollars thanks to Harris’ support. Think of all the criminals who can be put right back into your neighborhood thanks to the future vice president. In 2018 the group had a tax return of about $100,000.
MFF caught some heat over the summer after it was reported that it helped free someone with multiple rape convictions and allegedly a lot of violent criminals.
The Washington Post did a random act of journalism by reviewing the data and discovered that MFF bailed out of jail a person who was accused of shooting at police officers during the riots in Minnesota.
KMSP, a local Fox affiliate learned that of those who received bail money from the MMF was a twice-convicted sex offender and a woman who was accused of killing a friend of hers.
And you can’t get a full accounting of the people who were bailed out of jail by the fund that Kamala Harris supported and helped get millions. They don’t want to give up the list, which means they more-than-likely know that what they do is unconscionable. They are helping violent felons to get out of jail and go back into neighborhoods to prey on innocent people and innocent businesses again. For whatever reason, they are doing it, whatever the ideology that forces them to do something so evil, they know that civil society does not approve. That’s why they will not give up the list.
An MFF says that the record of people they helped reach bail “are available via the Hennepin and Ramsey County jail rosters.” Even so, it’s nearly impossible to see them.
A reporter for KMSP, Tom Lunden, said that the documentation “is difficult to find and it is not available online.”
“You must go through items in the file, which you can only do at a live terminal,” he said. Have you ever had to sit down at a public library and use a terminal system? I’d rather shave my head with a cheese grater while chewing on tinfoil.
Lynden said they used a court document, a “Request to Return Bail to a Third Party” to help confirm a lot of the bail cases that are tied to MFF.
“In the rundown of court filings, it is usually listed as an ‘Other,’ along with many other items, so you have to go into each file to find it,” Lyden said.
“If there is such a document,” he added. “In some cases, the defendant may get to keep the money, and in other cases, I’ve been told it wasn’t necessary. So, the request form is one indicator, but not the only one.”
At this point, it’s next to impossible to get real numbers or real information. It’s like the old adage, the process is the punishment.
