    It has been a while since I revisited the crime issues of Connecticut. "Crime Free Democrat Connecticut" is a fantasy media-enabled construct that King Ned Lamont the Unaccountable and his cronies in the Democrat Party and state-supported media preach to Connecticut taxpayers daily. We see the inept and serially incompetent United States Senator Chris Murphy bellowing that the Biden Administration-created border crisis is the fault of the lack of action on the part of the Republicans. He creatively avoids any Democrat responsibility for the horrific crisis the left has created and is never taken to task for this by a lap-dog media. On the other hand, Connecticut Democrats crow that there is little to no crime in the state based on the diluted and maligned statistics they boast. These same statistics seem to show little to no actual reality as far as crime is concerned.

    Do you disagree?

    Allow me to share a serious case in point being an amazing article that was actually published by the left-leaning Hartford Courant concerning a crime that could have been avoided. The alleged criminal, Franklin Post, 35 years old, apparently sped through a stop sign in Griswold, CT, and killed Charlotte Degrado, 96, of Branford, who was an occupant in the car that he hit. According to the article, Post has at least a dozen criminal convictions and has at least ten more criminal cases pending against him. He has served hard time in prison on three different occasions. He was free on bond even though he has been arrested six times since January. Inexplicably, he has had the ability to post $275,000 in bonds. Post also has repeatedly violated his probations, and this time fled after the accident. "Troopers found drug paraphernalia and a knife inside of the Audi, according to Connecticut State Police. Witnesses told authorities that three people inside of the vehicle had gotten out after the crash and ran away...His GPS ankle device had been tampered with, he had pills that tested positive for fentanyl and had more than $4,000 in cash on him."

    Based on all of Post’s prior convictions, violations of probation, and ostensible drug use, why was this man free to be allowed to murder this 96-year-old innocent woman by his vehicle? In a stark, staring testimony to the total lack of professionalism and integrity of the administrative state in Connecticut, how is it even possible that he maintained his driver's license? Why was he walking free in numerous violations of his probation? These questions need to be answered immediately, if not sooner.

    It is evident that the Connecticut Democrat Party and its assorted facilitators and enablers have little to no concern whatsoever about public safety in the state. Spending just a few minutes driving on a state highway, or in any of the sparkling cities and inner-ring suburbs in Connecticut will tell anyone that. Connecticut is at such a state of disaster that even a prominent state legislator referred to it this past week as a “laughing stock”. Where no real and productive job creating business would ever venture to come into the state, we are instead treated to The Unaccountable’s self-serving visions of “Innovation Clusters” likely benefiting his family interests.

    But none of that matters, as more weighty issues concern the left, like lowering the prison population and making everyone unsafe except for the career criminals and crime gangs that roam freely in the state as they are now coddled and protected by the left. Car insurance costs on the state have skyrocketed due to the constant theft of vehicles in the state and the abysmal traffic enforcement on state highways and roads. Juvenile delinquents roam free to steal with no fear of any type of legal action due to the dysfunctional and defective state legal system that apparently will not prosecute them. Retail store costs of shoplifting continue to climb with costs being passed on to you and I as legitimate customers. Blatant crime exists with thefts of anything and everything in the state, from being held up while trying to put your groceries in your car, from pumping gas, and even now with you a law-abiding citizen sitting in your home being at risk of intruders breaking in.

    One can only hope the Degrado family takes all possible legal avenues against the state judicial system, its judges, probation officers, defense lawyers and state elected officials to expose and hold them liable for their actions for the death of their family member. Yes, it is high time that our highly paid and serially unaccountable Connecticut administrative system hold responsibility as well along with the criminal in this case for their careless and negligent attitude in handling this career criminal. Yet another innocent life is lost due to the crime spree that exists in "Crime Free Democrat Connecticut", for no reason at all except for the stupidity of a politically correct non-functioning judicial system. A system that helps to buy votes evermore for a horrific social experiment that is now at a point of no return to a once proud and productive state, called Connecticut.

    Being a half-witted Neanderthal, I seethe at the pretentious, arrogant sophisticates that claim to know what's best for the mere citizenry and Christian knaves such as myself, and I cannot stomach their pseudo-wisdom and entitled impositions.

    However, it does not help our station to rail against issues that may not be exactly what we perceive without backing it with data.

    The stats show a different paradigm.
