The White House blamed former President Donald Trump for an uptick in violent crime, waving off a charge that the surge is rooted in liberal bail reform policies.
Asked whether the administration could encourage stronger prosecution of criminals or leverage other tools to cut down on violent recidivism, President Joe Biden’s press secretary pointed to Trump.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We’ve inherited from the previous administration the largest year-over-year jump in murders in history in 2020,” Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday.
The Democratic lawmakers have pushed to make changes over the years regarding the criminal justice system. Critics say those changes, such as end to cash bail, sentencing reduction, and juvenile prosecution reform actually increased violent crime in major cities.
Psaki said, “The president said that cash bail has become the modern-day debtors’ prison, no one should be held just because they are poor, and a person who was dangerous but has the money to pay bail shouldn’t have a get-out-of-jail card.”
