Ocasio-Cortez Rails Against ‘Excessive Bail’ After the Waukesha Attack

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) adores the fact that people get very angry with her. It’s what she lives for. And if the people getting angry at her are her political foes on the right, AOC is in whatever form of heaven she believes in. Nobody can be so tone-deaf or insensitive that they would advocate for reform of “excessive bail” just hours after it came to light that Darrell Edward Brooks, the man who murdered six people with his car in Waukesha, Wisc., was out of jail because of a prosecutor asking for and receiving a ludicrously low bail. Imagine the pleasure AOC got when her enemies erupted with venom against her idiotic position of advocating against “excessive bail.” The Milwaukee district attorney in the case, Democrat John Chisholm, seemed unconcerned that his low bail policies led to the death of six people. “Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into [a] treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody?” he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2007. “You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach.” Perhaps if Mr. Chisolm was forced to confront the families of those killed because of his own arrogant stupidity, he might be singing a different tune.
