From Daniel Horowitz , ConservativeReview.com, April 17, 2020: Imagine a sheriff coming home to his family one night knowing that in a day’s work, he arrested a pastor for holding services while following CDC distancing guidelines, yet at the same time, released a bunch of criminals, one of whom is now accused of murder. Well, meet Chad Chronister–the face of this mix of anarchism and fascism in the coronavirus response. Joseph Edward Williams was one of over 100 prisoners released from Orient Road Jail in Hillsborough County, Florida. Sheriff Chad Chronister told us at the time not to worry because they were low-level, nonviolent offenders.
Well, a day after he was released on March 19 under the guise of preventing coronavirus spread in jail, Williams allegedly shot a man to death in Tampa. “There is no question Joseph Williams took advantage of this health emergency to commit crimes while he was out of jail awaiting resolution of a low-level, non-violent offense. As a result, I call on the State Attorney to prosecute this defendant to the fullest extent of the law,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said. As WMFY reports, Williams had been arrested 35 times! Court records show that Williams had a history of burglary, assault, theft, and yes, weapons charges in Hillsborough County. Yet he barely served time in prison. A blind person could see this threat coming a mile away. Yet fools like Chronister keep releasing criminals based on the last offenses for which they are serving time without factoring in their threat to society based on their prior records. Williams is now charged with second-degree murder, resisting an officer with violence, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of heroin, and possession of drug paraphernalia. The murder is alleged to have occurred just 26 hours after Williams was released.
What few people realize is that this is the same sheriff who held a press conference a week later lecturing the public on the Bible and social distancing and then arrested Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne for holding services, even though his lawyer says he was following CDC guidelines for sanitation and social distancing. This sheriff is typical of the bureaucratic/totalitarian minds that get stupid with power, like many FDA staffers, Michigan governor Whitmer, and countless other petty tyrants. Remember this formula: bureaucratic mind + power = totalitarian!
