Los Angeles police union files suit against owner of

the Los Angeles Council From the superintendent is contemplating a plan to “de-jail” prisons by citing anyone’s bail of $50,000 or less, city documents show.

An agenda item was added to the board meeting on Tuesday titled “Los Angeles County Take the following actionable steps to depopulate the Los Angeles County jails,”

This procedure was introduced by moderators Lindsey Horvath and Hilda Solis, both Democrats, and has only one public comment attached to it.

The proposal outlines that it “would declare the state of mental health services and overcrowding in Los Angeles County jails as a humanitarian crisis, asking the province to move with all deliberate speed to find meaningful solutions; and prioritize decreasing the number of individuals entering Los Angeles County jails.”

If passed, the local sheriff would be instructed to review his bail limits and cite “individuals with total bail amounts set at $50,000 or less” and release them. The Los Angeles Superior Court will be directed to “implement the emergency bail schedule that was in place at the height of the COVID pandemic” in an effort to “prioritize increased opportunities for pretrial release.”

Vice President of the Los Angeles Association of Deputy Attorneys General Eric Siddall criticized the agenda item as “dangerous”.

California shifted to San Quentin State Prison with an emphasis on rehabilitation

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors (BOS) proposal to gut portions of criminal justice system “Without input from stakeholders is dangerous and reckless,” Siddall told Fox News. The authors did not seek advice from those who know and understand public safety issues. They seek to reduce the prison population without addressing the root causes of crime or protecting the public.”

Under the proposal, he said, law enforcement officers would be directed to cite and release suspects accused of illegal firearm possession, and arrested on charges such as domestic violence, possession of child pornography, home burglary, robbery or assault with a firearm.

They demanded that the Board of Supervisors adhere to a closure schedule that would close the prison by March 2025. The protests came after news broke that three inmates died in Los Angeles over the course of one week, including one at the men’s central prison.

Criticizing the agenda, Siddall added that it did not include how to “protect society from violent criminals.”

“This catch and release program comes without any plan or infrastructure to protect the community from violent criminals arrested by law enforcement. Moreover, it does not create closure facilities for the mentally ill. This program benefits no one, except for career criminals. We need to ensure that the most dangerous offenders do not get out, that first-time offenders do not return, and that those suffering from serious mental illnesses receive appropriate care and assistance. “It does none of that,” Siddall said.

Horvath and Solis’ office did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment on the agenda item and Siddall’s criticisms.

The council is scheduled to meet at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
