Wexton and Democrats “Criminal Justice Reform” Strikes Again. Attempted Mass Shooters In Richmond, VA Released on $15,000.
Is anyone aware that there was a mass shooting in Highland Park, IL just the other day? I think (6) were murdered and (30) were wounded. Not good right? Did you also happen to hear that another mass shooting was thwarted in Richmond, VA that was intended to be carried out on the 4th of July? Yup, (2) illegal aliens with “weapons for war” were about to murder a whole bunch of Virginians, but thankfully someone tipped off the cops and they busted them just in time (more details in story below).
Is there any Democrat alive, or perhaps one of your dead voters that can explain to the people of Richmond and Virginia how the (2) suspects are set to be released on $15,000 bail? Is it because it’s voting season and you are pandering? Where’s the outrage? How is this even possible? It’s possible because of people like Jennifer Wexton and their reckless “Criminal Justice Reform” and “Restorative Justice” ideology, it’s that simple. Wexton is oh so proud of her “Restorative Justice” bill she passed when she was in the VA State Senate. In fact, here’s a video of her gloating to the NAACP about that very bull: VIDEO. She carried her radical ideologies from the VA State Senate right into the halls of congress, all while voting 100% with Team Joe.
Jennifer Wexton can shove her prayers and gun legislation. The term “Public Safety” is practically an oxymoron in our world today. We need miscreants like Wexton and the rest of the Dems out of office now. Then in 2023, we have to rid the state of VA of the progressive prosecutor cesspool, perhaps starting with Buta Biberaj.
Richmond police on Wednesday said a tip from a “hero citizen” prevented a mass shooting at the Dogwood Dell Fourth of July celebration Monday. Two men were arrested, and two assault rifles, a handgun and several hundred rounds of ammunition were seized in a South Richmond residence, authorities said.
The announcement came two days after a rooftop gunman opened fire during an Independence Day parade in suburban Chicago, killing seven in a massacre that wounded dozens of others.
Police in Richmond did not release information about a possible motive in the Dogwood Dell case. Police Chief Gerald Smith during a press conference Wednesday said an officer in the 2nd Precinct received the anonymous tip from a concerned citizen, who overheard a conversation regarding a mass shooting.
Officers and agents from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security investigated the information, which led them to a residence in the 3100 block of Columbia Street, Smith said. One of the occupants Friday allowed police to search the home, where several firearms were found out in the open, police said.
Police later arrested Julio Alvarado-Dubon, 52, of Richmond, who faces a preliminary charge of being a non-U.S. citizen in possession of a firearm. He is being held at Richmond City Jail without bond.
Police also monitored Alvarado-Dubon’s roommate “very, very closely,” Smith said, until obtaining probable cause for an arrest warrant. Rolman Balacarcel, 38, of Richmond, was arrested by Virginia State Police in Charlottesville on Tuesday.
He faces the same preliminary charge as Alvarado-Dubon and is being held in Albemarle County Jail with no bond.
Police spokesperson Tracy Walker said both men are from Guatemala. Initial documents filed in General District Court in Richmond say both Alvarado-Dubon and Balacarcel are not in the U.S. legally. The documents, which say Alvarado-Dubon has an expired visa, did not include any details about the alleged plot.
Court documents note bond was set at $15,000 for Alvarado-Dubon on Wednesday, but it was unclear if he had been released. The documents say he has lived in the Richmond area for three years and works full time in the construction industry. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled in Richmond on Aug. 2. Alvarado-Dubon’s attorney, Jose Aponte, declined to comment Wednesday.
The suspects may face more charges as law enforcement’s investigation continues. A Richmond police spokesperson said Homeland Security officials are leading the investigation.
Smith said they’re unsure how the weapons were obtained, but the suspects did say their intent was to “conduct a mass shooting on the Fourth of July.”
