It is disgraceful and truly embarrassing what is occurring in our cities, towns, and neighborhoods across the United States of America. Twelve major cities recently reported to have broken their annual homicide records. If you follow that statistic, you will find that very radical thinking officials and the Criminal Justice system are running these cities. It has been turned into something that is barely functioning and almost unrecognizable. Those not currently living in one of these locations might wipe their brow and thank God this criminality is not near them and so they continue about their normal day.
Elected officials must be removed from their position when they are not doing their job! Why are Governors, Mayors, and District Attorneys above the law when it comes to criminal negligence, fostering criminal activity and violations of their oath of office? Why are they not removed from office? It is apparent we cannot wait for new elections to solve the increased criminal activities in our cities throughout the country. Once citizens witness negligence on a continuing basis by elected officials and promoting more criminal activity, they need to be removed immediately from office.
“Violation of the oath of office” means the neglect or knowing failure by an elective public officer to perform faith- fully a duty imposed by law. Violation of the oath of office, including malfeasance, misfeasance, or nonfeasance, shall constitute good and sufficient cause for removal from office of any such officer. The fourth federal law, 18 U.S.C. 1918 provides penalties for violation of oath office described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 which include: (1) removal from office and (2) confinement or a fine. The definition of “advocate” is further specified in Executive Order 10450 which for the purposes of enforcement supplements 5 U.S.C. 7311. Is violation of oath a felony? They will be guilty of a felony. The oath was not administered correctly: If the officer was not administered an oath, or the oath was not prescribed by law, then they will not be guilty of violating their oath.
A leader, Politician, President whose character is marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the Leader of a free People. The U. S. Constitution COMMANDS every Government Official to be BOUND by an Oath of Affirmation: Article 6, Clause 3. Then they are REQUIRED to take the Lawful Oath before they can take the seat which they were elected. Now it is time We the People hold them to their Lawful Oath and demand they stand by every word in the Oath. They Solemnly Swear, to Support and Defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and Domestic, they take it Obligation Freely without any Mental Reservation or Purpose of EVASION! We MUST MAKE The Oath of Office a relevant ISSUE.
We as citizens of America can no longer tolerate or allow public officials to release criminals back into society. These officials are an accessory to crimes by releasing known criminals back into society and not arresting those who commit crimes. When a criminal suspect is arrested, booked and granted release on their “own recognizance,” or “O.R.,” no bail money is paid to the court and no bond is posted. The suspect is merely released after promising, in writing, to appear in court for all upcoming proceedings. Most courts impose additional conditions on subjects in exchange for releasing them on their own recognizance when there is a nexus between the condition and the crime charged.
For example, multiple DUI offenders are often required to immediately surrender their vehicle and begin attending alcohol treatment classes in exchange for their release. Similarly, many states have strict domestic violence laws requiring suspected batterers to immediately enroll in domestic violence education classes. These same suspects are often required to stay a certain number of feet or yards from the alleged victim in the form of a temporary restraining order, or “T.R.O.,” until the case is resolved.

As expected, each condition must be related to the circumstances of the case and the crime charged. NYC’s ‘no bail’ law rewards criminals and punishes law-abiding citizens.
What Are the Pros to Such Bail Reforms?
The obvious “pro” to bail reforms is that people will not be held in jail simply because they cannot produce bail money. Cash bail is unduly harsh to most people of less financial means. The bail reforms will also prohibit excessive bail from being set on minor charges. One study found that in New York City, of the 5,000 persons detained pending trial, 43% would have been released under the new bail reforms. And of the 205,000 cases arraigned in 2018, only 10% would have been eligible for money bail under the new laws. People also will not be held on bail when police or prosecutors “over charge” a defendant. Many lower-level felony charges will eventually resolve as either as a misdemeanor or with a non-criminal disposition. If bail were set on the felony charge, a defendant may spend time in jail for a case that ends up as a mere violation. Another “pro” is that there will be less of a strain on prisons. If fewer people are detained, jails can better allocate their resources. Some may see this as a “con” however, as there may be fewer jobs in local correctional institutions.
What Are the Cons?
The biggest “con” is that public safety will no longer be a consideration for setting bail. Some persons accused of robbery and burglary – both violent felonies – will be released without bail. Those defendants may indeed pose a risk to public safety. What if it was a string of burglaries or robberies? Might they commit the offense again? Also, many persons charged with drug felonies will be released without bail. While not a gun or a knife, some drugs – such as fentanyl – are so deadly, the public may be put in danger. And drug dealers who are not caught with guns may still have access to weapons. Such happened in New Jersey after the state enacted its own bail reforms. Finally, bail reforms may erode the public’s confidence in the system. If a victim sees the perpetrator back on the street, will the victim feel safe? While an Order of Protection provides some level of assurance, in the end it is just a piece of paper. Without a judge determining what level of dangerousness a defendant may pose, the Legislature may be forcing the release of persons who may commit additional crimes.
It is time that the police be supported by our Military to clean up the cities. Restored funding and aggressive recruiting is also required to restore our police. Governors need to call up and task the State’s National Guard to reinforce the police. With the defunding of police and the loss in ranks of police, the sheriffs and police chiefs cannot and will not overcome the crime in our cities. The nests of these criminals need to be cleaned out. We have a national crisis, and it will multiply unless aggressive action be taken now. The jails will not be capable of housing the numbers of criminals that will be arrested so alternate holding locations/facilities will have to be used.
These errant politicians should be forced to step down from office or placed under arrest for not enforcing the law. By releasing criminals back on the street is facilitating more criminal activity and endangering citizens. These elected officials are not above the law. When public officials do not enforce the law as we witnessed the riots in Minneapolis, Portland, and other cities in the 2020, the likes of Antifa, BLM and others know they can commit crimes with no penalties. Crime is rampant in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and other cities and in the case of New York, violators and known criminals are returned to the streets after no bail releases and free to commit further crimes.
Do we need do to hold public officials accountable for fostering crime? The answer is YES! No one is above the law and if you are incentivizing crime, you are as guilty as the perpetrators.
