Democrats want everyone to get out of jail early. That's a bad idea.

“We need to stop feeling sorry for some of these people and put their butts where they need to be and that’s in prison and keep them there,” Lott said. “If we don’t, we’re not going to be lucky next time when they’re out here shooting at deputies and police officers.”
4 years for attempted murder, carjacking, and armed robbert? What a joke...

In 2014 Boyd, from Columbia, pleaded guilty to charges of attempted murder after he shot someone, carjacking, armed robbery and a gun offense, Lott said. A judge sentenced him to more than seven years imprisonment. Boyd served 85 percent of that sentence and was released in November 2018 on community supervision, according to Peter O’Boyle, a spokesperson for the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services.

Yep, this is NOT the kind of candidate for early release. But I'm all for early release for many non-violent offenders, especially those who were locked up for minor drug crimes.

Nice false equivalency. Nearly all criminal justice reform efforts have been targeted at non-violent offenders, not those convicted of robbery, carjacking, etc.
