The man who Nashville police say endangered the entire community by stealing the keys for a soon-to-be opened prison played a key role in forming Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I., Vt.) criminal justice plan.

Alex Friedmann, the managing editor of Prison Legal Newswas arrested and is facing two felony charges after he posed as a construction worker, entered the grounds of the Downtown Detention Center of the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office, stole keys from the site that could open 100 doors, and made a diagram of the jail’s layout, which he attempted to eat during his arrest.

The article goes on to state the following:

Friedmann’s actions could delay the facility’s opening as new locks have to be installed. The Nashville police department said that he has “put the safety of the community in peril.”

The Free Beacon revealed that Friedmann, an ex-con, “was instrumental in helping Sanders go beyond just economic issues and stake out progressive positions on criminal justice such as abolishing private prisons.”

The report also notes that Friedmann “was arrested in 1987 for armed robbery and assault with attempt to commit murder. In 1991 he was charged with attempted aggravated robbery. He served a total of 10 years in prison.”
