Judge Glenn Devlin lost his reelection bid Tuesday. On Thursday, he released seven juvenile defendants after asking each if they planned to kill anyone.
When they each said no, he released them.
The Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg has condemned the jurist’s actions.
She told the BBC in an emailed statement: “We oppose the wholesale release of violent offenders at any age; this could endanger the public.”
“If the juvenile said ‘no,’ they were released,” Mr Halpert said. “Judge Devlin would never normally ask that question of a juvenile. This was unusual.”
It’s ironic that Judge Devlin was on the juvenile court. His actions were clearly the juvenile response to an election loss.
Bitterness can lead people to do stupid things, but when those stupid things have the potential to cause harm to others, one might expect a judge to be more of an adult. Apparently, Devlin is not.
Judge Devlin dismissed allegedly violent defendants over bitterness from an election loss. He does a disservice to his profession, his community, and his reputation by being so petty.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
