We’ve  seen this story play out again and again. We’ve seen it with illegal aliens with lengthy rap sheets who return after being deported and kill. We’ve seen it with violent criminal offenders who are released without bail then go on to commit more heinous crimes.

This time it’s a beneficiary of the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF), which was created during the George Floyd protests as a source of cash bail to demonstrators who were arrested. The fund got plenty of financial support from Hollywood liberals, though one of its most notable supporters was then-Sen. Kamala Harris.

On June 1, Harris tweeted:

Trending: When words fail, say it with fists. When fists fails, play the race card

Now one of its recipients is in the headlines for committing murder. The Daily Mail reports:

An alleged Minneapolis domestic abuser has been arrested and charged with murder he is said to have carried out weeks after being released thanks to a bail fund backed by Vice President Kamala Harris.

George Howard, 48, was bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) on August 6 after being held on a $11,500 on charges of domestic abuse.

Weeks later, Howard was charged with murder when he shot another driver on I-94 during a road rage incident on August 29.

Neither Harris nor her office has commented on the arrest. That’s hardly surprising for the vice president, who, despite having admitted to being the “last person in the room” when Joe Biden made the ill-fated decision to go forward with the Afghanistan troop withdrawal, has  been maintaining a lower-than-ever profile.
