A little over one-in-three of the protesters bailed out of Madison’s jail last summer went on to commit new crimes.
The State Journal reviewed the numbers and found that 25 of the 70 people bailed-out by social justice activists committed crimes after their release. The paper says the tally includes 108 felonies and 49 misdemeanors or municipal code violations. Many of those charges are for bail jumping, but prosecutors also filed weapons and armed robbery charges, and at least one suffocation charge against the 25. The social justice groups that posted the bail did not comment to the State Journal.
