    Philadelphia Ends Jail for ‘Non-Violent’ Criminals Because of Coronavirus Crisis

    Why do I think this won't end well?

    Philadelphia Ends Jail for ‘Non-Violent’ Criminals Because of Coronavirus Crisis

    The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Police Department is implementing a new policy where accused criminals deemed “non-violent” will be quickly released after their arrests in light of the coronavirus crisis.

    Police officials confirmed to CBS Philadelphia that accused criminals charged with non-violent crimes will be processed and released so as not to fill up city jails. Police officials said those accused criminals considered to be violent will not be released.

    Yes put them all out in the street where they probably have a better chance of getting infected.
    Just an excuse to clear out the jails.
    Come back when the epidemic is over to finish your sentence y'all.

    Just craziness. Pile stupid on stupid. The city will either tear itself apart or people will leave it like they did Detroit.

    What is considered a non-violent offense still puts the public at risk. As someone who has never used drugs I don't give a damn if someone wants to get high, so long as they're not hurting anyone else. Letting thieves out, who absolutely do harm people even if not physically, is dumb no matter what. Letting thieves out during a time of shortages and when looting could break out due to panic is even dumber.

    It's only going to get worse as more COs and cops test positive for the virus.

    I look at FoP the same as Sheriffs Associations. It says one thing, the troops on the line say another. They're probably saying, "What the heck?" or something to that effect.

    I would imagine this is common practice. I am a non-LEO employee of a small PD in Florida, and today we received an email basically stating the same for our small city.

    Are these with a current non-violent sentence, or no violent criminal record?
    Sentenced 4 times in the past for assault but currently incarcerated for shoplifting. Let 'em out.
