California Democrats love their no-bail policy, but police and some mayors do not feel the same as they see a massive increase in crime thanks to putting those arrested back on the street immediately. One such case is that of Troy Davis, 51. Davis was a parolee with a violent criminal past and yet he was released under the Democratic no-bail policy.
Davis broke into the home of Mary Tibbitts. He sexually assaulted her before killing her and her two dogs. Since this is California, he could get probation for killing Tibbitts but would get life for killing the dogs. The neighbors are in shock and it was learned that Dais was caught masturbating near Tibbitts’ home the day before her murder.
Said Mark Sousa to KOVR-TV:
“It’s more sadness. We feel for her and the dogs and how they passed. We hope they didn’t suffer.”
Davis had stolen a car, but was released without bail, giving him the opportunity to attack and kill Tibbitts. Critics of the bill warned that this type of thing would become common if the no-bail law was enacted. District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert told KOVR that California is becoming a hotbed of violent crime.
“The public, I think, would be shocked to learn about this, ‘what do you mean we’re going to let this person out on zero bail?'”
On Thursday, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and Councilmember Katie Valenzuela pressed for changes to the prison re;ease system which does not take into account someone’s violent past. It’s a bad policy and Democratic politicians are paying a price for supporting the law. In the end, they are the ones shouldering the blame, even if they did not vote for the law.
“We cannot simply release people from jail onto the streets without working harder to ensure that they are getting the treatment and services they desperately need to prevent them from harming themselves or others,” read a joint statement from Steinberg and Valenzuela.

“Our system is broken,” they added.
Neighbors planned a vigil and protest on Thursday evening to demand answers about the horrific crime.
