Following the attack in Waukesha, ウィスコンシン, where repeat offender Darrell Brooks Jr. plowed into Christmas parade attendees, bail reform has been a front-and-center concern in managing crime. Tatum agreed that bail reform has potential, but only if done right.
“I think bail reform, if done with the right mindset or in good faith, could be a good idea because then you can look at it in a more thorough sense,” 彼は言った. “But the way they’re doing it is off of social justice correctness. These people should not be out. You don’t rehabilitate a deranged criminal by letting them out.”
During his appearance at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest, Tatum positioned that criminal rehabilitation should be done in the home at a young age. For violent criminals with a thick record like Brooks Jr., letting him out with a pat on the back “is not the solution.”
“He needs to be in jail so he don’t kill people like that,” 彼は言った. “So I think in good faith, maybe people can reimagine what reform is when it comes to bail reform. How much bond should you give a person in a reasonable sense based on the crime that they’ve committed? But to do it for social correctness or social justice… is the wrong way to go about doing it. That’s why we see a huge fallout when it’s applied.”
