As the media were too preoccupied praising Kamala Harris for making ‘Timberland boots cool again” – after they lambasted Melania Trump for wearing them several years ago – journalists overlooked the fact that the Minnesota Freedom Fund she openly endorsed bailed out Timothy Wayne Columbus.
He faces up to 30 years in prison for allegedly sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl in 2015. He was released from a Minneapolis jail in early July on $75,000 bail, according to jail records.
In August, MFF paid $350,000 in cash to release twice-convicted rapist Christopher Boswell from jail. Boswell currently faces charges of kidnapping and sexual assault as well.
The fund bailed out Lionel Timms from jail in late July on a third-degree felony assault charge for allegedly assaulting a person on a bus. Timms was arrested again while out on bail for allegedly assaulting a bar manager, who was left with a traumatic brain injury.
MFF Interim Executive Director Greg Lewin released a statement in response to Timms’ second offence saying his arrest while out on bail was a “failure of the criminal justice system.”
Deshaun Jermain Boyd was released from jail on $70,000 bail in July after being charged with 1st-degree aggravated robbery. He stomped on the head of a man with a cane and robbed him.
Do we need to go any further to show up a system where a potential president proudly paints criminals as victims?
