(AbsoluteNews.com) – States have implemented many changes to stop the spread of COVID-19. Lockdowns, mask requirements, and social-distancing rules seem to be the norm. But California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is taking it a bit far and he could be putting people in danger.
On June 29, Newsom announced he may allow 3,500 inmates to be released from prison early. The Democratic governor says he’s doing it to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. Currently, nearly 5,000 prisoners have the virus. This is not the first release either, Newsom took the same action back in March, shortly after COVID cases spiked in the US.

Other states have released prisoners early, as well. In Colorado, a prisoner who was paroled due to the COVID-19 pandemic is suspected of killing a 21-year-old woman three weeks after his release. In Hillsborough County, FL, officials decided to release prisoners and one man murdered someone the day after his release. Is something like this going to happen in California? Time will tell.
