We already knew that neither Loretta Lynch nor Eric Holder were Attorneys General who would actually hold up the laws as they should. That was clear during Fast and Furious. It was also clear when Lynch “secretly” met with Bill Clinton on a tarmac to discuss their “grandchildren.”
It seems that no one really knew how bad Holder and Lynch were until now. It has been discovered that some of the insane laws that are being changed in some states to make life easier for criminals (and worse for law-abiding citizens) were actually pushed thanks to the Department of Justice under Obama.
Ace of Spades caught this and published a list of all the things that were changed in various states because of a push from Democrats, especially the top guns at the DOJ. This list is absolutely horrifying:
Below the fold, I lifted the text out of the follow-up tweets to save load time. Prepare to be really depressed:
(1) Boy oh boy. Remember we said that after Obama left office, we'd find out the damage he did?
It's much worse than I imagined. pic.twitter.com/SohcTj9HcC

(2) Under Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, the Department of Justice pushed the states to pass new laws.
(3) The goal was to make it impossible to hold repeat offenders in jail before trial. Why?
(4) Because so many repeat offenders are black.
(5) The first step was to reclassify violent felonies as nonviolent misdemeanors. Look at California.
(6) Assault with a deadly weapon, harming a crime victim or witness, resisting arrest that injures a police officer…
(7) Violent elder or child abuse, arson with injury, and manslaughter are now nonviolent felonies.
(8 ) Proposition 47–passed in 2014–reclassified certain “nonviolent felonies” as misdemeanors.
(9) Therefore prisoners convicted of violent elder abuse were released because now their former violent felony was a misdemeanor.
(10) So the Democrats first changed violent felonies to misdemeanors. Then they changed the laws for bail.
(11) Washington DC Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier resigned because criminals were being arrested, released, and arrested again the same day.
(12) “D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier leaves her post in two weeks with high popularity and crime down over her tenure but frustrated by a system that she said allows repeat violent offenders back on the street time after time.”
(13) Federal authorities decide who stays in jail in DC. Under pressure from Holder and Lynch, they were releasing everyone.
(14) The crime rate spiked dramatically. The Democrats are pushing for “community rehabilitation programs” instead of prison.
(15) The most repulsive member of congress–@tedlieu, the guy who trolls Trump–has introduced a doozy of a bill.
(16) Lieu wants to ELIMINATE bail in the entire country.
(17) They point to the “success” of New Jersey, which eliminated bail earlier this year.
(18 ) In New Jersey, a person is evaluated with an eight-question form. Prior offenses are not taken into consideration.
(19) As a result almost nobody is held over until trial. Almost everyone is released.
(20) The state had to hire new staff and create new computer systems to manage the new system.
(21) Releasing everybody has so far cost New Jersey $400 million, and the crime rate is skyrocketing.
(22) Washington DC eliminated bail, and now the city pays $50 million a year to oversee almost no prisoners.
(23) Duane and Beth Chapman–He’s better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter–testified in Sacramento about the new laws coming.
(24) The Chapmans pointed out every loophole they could: a guy who never shows up for trial, for example.
(25) They said that the Democrats then TWEAKED the laws to EXCLUDE any possible offender.
(26) The DC Police arrested a total of 219 violent protestors on Inauguration Day. Only 17 showed up for their trials.
(27) The Chapmans said that the Democratic party has made it a priority in 2017 to pass laws that make holding anyone in jail impossible.
(28 ) What I realized a long time ago is that Democrats’ sole motivation is to piss off conservatives.
(29) So I’m not surprised that one of our two major parties now wants us to die at the hands of violent criminals.
(30) The end result of Democratic “reform” is that criminals now commit crimes with impunity, and people are too afraid to call the cops.
(31) There are no penalties for threatening witnesses and skipping your trial. Nobody comes looking for you.
(32) And if you get arrested, they immediately release you.
(33) You may have heard that more an more celebrities are having their mansions broken into.
(34) Alanis Morissette was robbed of $2 million worth of jewelry.
(35) This is a new crime, being committed by old gangs such and the Bloods and Crips. It’s because there are no penalties.
(36) This is just one of the things Obama did to us. And the CURRENT Democrats want to make it even worse. The end.
Not to be outdone by NJ, CA passed Prop 57 in Nov changing the definition of violent felonies. This list no longer considered "violent" 😳 pic.twitter.com/PKWaYeKBYc

And these are the very same Democrats who want to make it harder for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves FROM the criminals they are enabling! This is absolutely disgusting.
Left-wing women are running around the country wearing p*ssy hats claiming Trump is a misogynist while their own party sold them out to allow criminals to ACTUALLY victimize them easier.
This is pure insanity. This is the Democrat Party. These are progressives.
