In Cook County, Chicago, there are 2,300 people free on electronic ankle monitors and 75 percent are accused of violent crimes

Ninety people accused of murder are free on electronic monitoring ankles in Chicago thanks to woke bail reforms that have put scores of violent criminals back on the streets.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart revealed the numbers to CBS on Monday, along with his fears that it is making communities significantly less safe. 

Dart said that in his county alone, 90 people accused of murder are free along with 40 people charged with attempted murder and 852 people charged with aggravated gun possession. 

In the year 2021, Chicago Police Department arrested 133 people for a violent crime while they were on electronic monitoring - 1 percent of the total.

Chicago's top cops - Dart and Chicago PD Chief Superintendent David Brown - say that one percent is too high a rate and that while 99 percent may not have been arrested, it sends the wrong message to criminals.  

But Chief Justice Timothy Evans, who imposed the reform in 2017, is refusing to revoke it.  

'A judge cannot hold someone pretrial without a finding that the defendant poses a real and present threat to the physical safety of any person. 

'This must be found by clear and convincing evidence and the burden of proof is on the prosecution.

Since 2017, crime in Chicago has skyrocketed and now, 75 percent of those with electronic monitoring bracelets are accused of violent crimes.  

Mayor Lightfoot suggested it was only a matter of time before the criminal currently on bond reoffend. 

'Do you feel safer knowing these numbers?

'I don’t think any sane person does.

'They’re right back on the street walking big as day as if there is zero accountability. 

'That’s what’s contributing to the level brazenness that we’re seeing on our street,' she said last week. 

In July, Chicago police officers came under fire from Klevontaye White, 34, who had cut off his ankle monitor and was wanted for aggravated sexual assault with a firearm.

The white elite have to release their Black terrorist they created, they are house Niggs doing masters bidding, they have to sell masters dope, his guns, have them keep them in their hoods murdering each other to keep them in power, they create jobs for whites as cops, judges, lawyers, politicians, they are the Jim Jones Niggs of today. The only cure would be to exterminate these vermin but that won't happen, they would keep you distracted with the fake Black power militants like Jam Master Jay where they parade around crying to massa for justice, meanwhile the real terrorist are the gangs and the dope dealers, thugs, all puppets of whites and the Black flunkeys at the top, enjoy your hell you sheep, it will never end, howl at the moon and cry.
