With homicides and property crimes rising in San Antonio and other U.S. cities, citizens are questioning lenient bail practices advocated by leftist community organizations. In San Antonio, the Texas Organizing Project (TOP), a Saul Alinsky-styled community organization, has led the campaign to lower bails and undermine the legal system in several ways. They have directly contributed to the current crime wave.
TOP was one of the influential organizations behind last year’s “defund the police” movement. The group is now focusing on bailing out what it calls “low-level offenders” with five thousand dollars or less bail.
According to a WOAI TV Channel 4 news report, TOP has bailed out 741 inmates from the Bexar County Jail since 2020. But unfortunately, their program coincides with the spike in crime and violence.
The TOP was founded in 2009 to organize Black and Latino communities in Dallas, Harris, and Bexar counties. They say their goal is to transform Texas into a state where “working people of color” have greater power and representation. However, their agenda is racist and Marxist.
TOP organizes people around issues and seeks public victories to show minority communities their power. Then they mobilize minority voters to elect people who support their racist/Marxist agenda. The effectiveness of TOP has been established in the number of liberal/leftist elected officials who promote their racist/Marxist, anti-law enforcement agenda in the San Antonio and Bexar County governments.
TOP says cash bail discriminates against the poor, and inmates should be released on little to no bond if they pose a negligible risk to society. However, WOAI found records that show some of the inmates TOP has bailed out have extensive criminal records and a history of not showing up to court.
While TOP claims to be working for Black and Latino communities, they endanger them through bail reform and anti-police efforts. SAPD Chief William MacManus has said that bail is a factor in the City’s 30 percent increase in homicides and property crimes.
Also, TOP’s loud and public campaign against the police has negatively impacted police/community relations. Because police officers are City employees, who report to liberal/leftist city officials elected with TOP’s help, any allegation against them can turn into a lengthy, emotionally, and financially draining situation for the officers.
Many officers have become wary of answering calls in minority communities because some members of the minority community disrespect them and refuse to cooperate with investigations. This attitude further endangers residents in minority communities.
Crime and violence affect minority community residents worse than others. So how does releasing repeat offenders help minority communities and the rest of the City?
Tow more fact It is also interesting the
TOP is a leftist organization that uses race and class to divide, conquer and gain power. They have used the George Floyd incident to push their racist/Marxist agenda.
Citizens and voters must reject TOP’s message and agenda because crime cannot be excused because of race and class. When a crime is excused and justified, you get more and worse.
