Christian Wingfield, the second suspect arrested in the shooting of an 11-year-old boy, was ordered released from the D.C. jail on May 22. That came after a May 14 emergency motion for his release because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Wingfield was being held in jail while his trial for two charges, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Possession of a Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device, worked their way through D.C. Superior Court. His initial request for release due to the pandemic was rejected on May 7, but after a subsequent refiling, which argued that Wingfield had a minimal criminal history, familial ties to the District and did not pose a risk to the community, his release was eventually granted.
Remember that 11 yr old black kid killed on July 4 in DC among many others? Every suspect was a gun felon out of jail and one was jailbreaked under the insane coronavirus #jailbreak https://t.co/0ROZ8sug0x

The same flat-earth “science” being used as a pretext to criminalize Americans for not wearing masks has been used to release violent criminals. Now, another one of those released from jail under coronavirus jailbreak policies has been charged with murder in the nation’s capital.
July 4 weekend was a horrible bloodbath for black children across many of our nation’s prominent cities. As I chronicled each of the cases last week, I predicted that most of the suspects would be repeat violent offenders, gun felons, parole violators, or all of the above. Well, that appears to be the case in the horrific D.C. shooting on Independence Day that left 11-year-old Davon McNeal dead.
McNeal was helping his mother at a neighborhood barbecue when a group of drive-by shooters fatally shot him. D.C. police have now arrested two suspects, have issued warrants for two more, and are waiting on a fifth.
During a press conference on Thursday, Police Chief Peter Newsham announced the arrest of 18-year-old Daryle Bond of Southeast D.C. and noted that he has a violent criminal history. Later that day, Christian Wingfield, 22, was arrested. Warrants have been issued for Marcel Gordon, 25, and Carlo General, 19, and they are still at large. Just this past spring, General was arrested on felony possession of a handgun, but rather than being jailed, he was placed into Maryland’s growing supervised probation program. More
Enough is enough! I am tired of Democrats releasing criminals to engage in more violence! The lawlessness is sickening!
cant they wear masks in jail? or does that violate their rights?

of course, the system is totally broken when it comes to locking people up who are a scourge on the innocent. We need a large Devil’s Island to drop these predators onto, never to be allowed back into society again. Let them prey on each other until they’re all gone.
