Bizar Male

Ask a cop in Denver why crime rates are going up so much these days, which I have been doing a lot lately, and most of them will tell you one of the biggest reasons is that DA Beth McCann is releasing too many suspects they arrest back out on the streets on personal recognizance bonds.

“PR bonds” require no money or property from suspects, only their signature and promise to appear in court at a future date. One cop told me that the DA is “giving out pr bonds like she is giving out water.”

Bizar Male

California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1475 into law July 23, banning police departments from posting mugshots of non-violent criminals on social media, but Chino and Chino Hills police say the law will not impact their policies.
