Iowa Dem Supports Bailing Out Violent Criminals and Abolishing the Police

An Iowa Democrat supports abolishing the police and supports groups that bail out violent criminals.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Swing-district Democratic congressional candidate Christina Bohannan encouraged the University of Iowa community to donate to one nonprofit that bails out violent criminals and another that aims to “dismantle, defund, and abolish the police.”

As faculty chairwoman of the University of Iowa law school’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, Bohannan penned a letter to students and staff that expressed support for the “outcry against injustice happening … around the nation” in the wake of George Floyd’s death. Included in the letter was a call to “support the movement” by funding the Minnesota Freedom Fund and National Bail Out Fund, two radical nonprofits that support defunding police.

Bohannan’s June 2020 letter was not the first time the Democrat, who is running to unseat Republican congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks, championed a radical bail fund. One year prior, Bohannan donated money to pay bail for illegal immigrants through Prairielands Freedom Fund, a group that also aims to eliminate prisons, achieve a “world without police,” and abolish Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. Bohannan’s numerous ties to anti-police groups are unlikely to help her standing with local voters: 88 percent of Iowans trust their local police department, according to a September Des Moines Register poll.

The Minnesota Freedom Fund—thanks in part to promotion from Bohannan and Vice President Kamala Harris—raised $35 million as riots swept the nation in the weeks that followed Floyd’s death. While the nonprofit pledged to “help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota,” just a fraction of the money was used to release protesters and rioters. Instead, the bail fund freed numerous heinous criminals, including an alleged child rapist and an accused domestic abuser who was arrested for murder just weeks after his release.

Bohannan said that her donation to the group did not mean he supported abolishing the police.

Put this Dem in prison WITH the violent criminals – let’s see if she has an “awakening” regarding police and where violent criminals belong.

Haven’t these democrats pissed off enough people yet with their illogical, illegal, anti-American antics for a generation of Americans to pass before these idiots even get listened to?

Leave them alone, let them steel destroy, see how long they like it, then throw in another 6 months before you try to stop it, just to make sure that they are sure, and they can’t move out, they have to stay right there until it’s all over.

Here we have the kind of Socialist who is willing to support anarchy in order to bring about a Socialist nation where the Federal Government is the only law enforcement. This is one of the most hateful types of Socialists. This person does not belong in any government position, elected, appointed or hired. She is a danger to the safety and freedom of all American citizens, even those who were deceived into voting for her.
While I agree that too many American citizens are currently incarcerated for things they should not be, violent criminals need to be dealt with more harshly, not less. Let’s focus on releasing American citizens who are incarcerated for social issues such as drug use and financial deficits. Should we really have a debtor’s prison for those who cannot pay fines to governments for laws that should not exist?

Someone should ask him if there are no police, what do you do when you get into an accident and need a police report for your insurance to pay to get your car fixed?
