The Dems lowered crimes like breaking into cars down from a felony to a misdemeanor. Breaking into a home is now just a property crime. Tell that to folks who walk in on a burglary in their home. According to local news reports, there were 87 murders in 2019. After Sisolak passed Criminal Justice reforms in the 2019 legislature, murders skyrocketed by 70% up to 148 in 2021. His opponent, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo’s campaign response “As governor, Joe will reverse Sisolak’s soft-on-crime policies and put an end to his dangerous legislation that makes our streets less safe. Joe believes fully funding the police is essential to public safety, and he will always support Nevada law enforcement.” The fact is, most crimes in a community are committed by a relative small group of repeat offenders. When we put that small group of offenders in prison crime drops. But when that small group of criminal continuous get out with light sentences their violence tends to increase. 360 News has done numerous articles over the past few years focused on criminals with long rap sheets who go on to kill people. Reported by 360 News on July 15, 2021 ALLEGED KILLER WAS OUT ON BAIL WITH 5 FELONY CHARGES PENDING James Hull was out on bail after he was charged with five felonies last May in 2020 still awaiting trial, when he allegedly murdered a 20 year old young man named Kesean Dedmon at the Fire Rock Steakhouse restaurant on the Centennial Center Boulevard last night. Nevada Democrats championed bail reforms and reducing violent crimes like burglaries to “property crimes”. Hull was charged back in May 2020 with burglary, larceny, grand theft auto, attempted grand larceny of an auto and possession of a stolen vehicle. As Reported by 360 News back on Sept. 10, 2021 OVER 16 VIOLENT FELONIES, ON PAROLE WHEN HE KILLED 3 PEOPLE THIS WEEK As reported by North Las Vegas Police, 35-year-old Tristan Tidwell was taken into custody without incident for the three deadly shootings that happened on September 6th, 2021. Tidwell has been booked into the North Las Vegas Corrections Center on three counts of open murder with a deadly weapon. Tidwell was out on bail when he murdered 3 people allegedly. According to the District Attorney Steve Wolfson’s office, Tidwell had a warrant for a 2007 home invasion, grand larceny, and burglary; and in 2018, Tidwell had been arrested for attempted robbery and burglary at a local bank in downtown Las Vegas. Wolfson hasn’t indicated whether he will seek the death penalty yet. Tidwell is the poster child for the 3 Strikes Law in Nevada. His long violent crime spree goes back to at least 2005, when he was sentenced to Boot Camp for 8 burglaries and 8 grand larcenies he pled guilty to. A year later, he was arrested and he pled guilty to another burglary, for which he got probation. In 2007, he was caught attempting another burglary. This time he got 12 months with time served. In July 2007, he’s charged with two home invasion robberies, which he gets 12 months for. While on bail awaiting trial on the previous charges, he commits another burglary. His sentence was “SIXTY (60) MONTHS MAXIMUM with a MINIMUM parole eligibility of TWENTY-FOUR (24)”. While in prison, he was charged with “Battery by a Prisoner”. After he got out in 2011 he was arrested again he pled guilty to 3 more crimes and is sentenced to “a MINIMUM of TWELVE (12) MONTHS and a MAXIMUM of THIRTY-TWO (32) MONTHS.” In November 2018, Tidwell was arrested and convicted of several more burglaries and sentenced again to 14 months. Just 3 months ago, Tidwell was in custody in court on more violent charges. “Also present: Glen O’Brien, Deputy District Attorney, Arleen Heshmati, Deputy Public Defender, and Denise Baker of the Specialty Courts. Defendant present. There being no challenge by Defense Counsel, COURT FINDS Defendant COMPETENT pursuant to the Dusky Standard as Defendant is capable of understanding the nature of the charges against him and is able to assist counsel in his defense and ORDERED, pursuant to 178.420, matter TRANSFERRED back to the originating court for further proceedings. CASE CLOSED. CUSTODY 6/24/21 8:30 AM NLV JCT#3 FURTHER PROCEEDINGS: RETURN FROM COMPETENCY COURT” Court Docket As Reported by 360 News back on January 20, 2020 THUG NATHAN GRAVES, NV’S POSTER CHILD FOR 3 STRIKES Video surfaced last week of Nathaniel Graves allegedly socking a senior citizen on a public bus, knocking out his eye. Metro did a great job tracking down the thug and arresting him yesterday. Since we now have a name with the face, 360 did some digging and found out that Graves, of course, has an extensive and violent criminal background and should not have been walking our streets. But last year, Nevada Democrats, led by Dem Assemblyman Steve Yeager passed “Criminal Justice” reform. So we can expect to see more Nathaniel Graves roaming our streets. Thug Graves, was arrested in November 2002 and charged with over 20 violent crimes, including kidnapping, multiple attempted murder charges, USE OF A DEADLY WEAPON OR TEAR GAS IN COMMISSION OF A CRIME, conspiracy to commit murder, and robbery. It took until 2008 for Graves to go to trial, where he entered a plea deal and now roams our streets. However, Graves was arrested six times previously and charged with more than 20 violent crimes, including sexual assault, drug trafficking, and gun crimes. But wait there’s more. IN 2016 Graves was arrested again for POSSESSION OF FIREARM BY PROHIBITED PERSON, He was sentenced to (19) MONTHS and a MAXIMUM of SIXTY (60) MONTHS in the Nevada Department of Corrections. Now fast forward to 2020, and Mr. Graves attacks an innocent senior citizen on a bus, knocking out his eye. As Reported by 360 News back on August 2, 2022 WANNABE KILLER HAD 2 PENDING WARRANTS AFTER GETTING OUT ON $500 BAIL Las Vegas was shocked by images this week of Armondo Dangerfield attempting to shoot and kill an unarmed man in his front yard, but thank God, his gun jammed. The cops got him, again. LVMPD said Armondo Dangerfield, 28, was arrested Sunday in Mesa, Arizona, by the U.S. Marshals Service task force. LVMPD identified Dangerfield as the suspect in an attempted robbery and an attempted murder in the western part of the valley, near the 215 Beltway and Lake Mead Boulevard. But all the local media failed to report that Dangerfield was a violent convicted felon with multiple warrants pending against him when he tried to rob and kill an unarmed man for no apparent reason. Dangerfield was arrested and charged with drug dealing on November 3, 2020. While in custody, Dangerfield was violent and disruptive and was charged with felony battery by prisoner, probationer, or parolee . His court record states he was: Defendant not Transported disruptive But Judge Pro Tempore William Jensen released him anyway on $500 bail. Dangerfield properly skipped and never showed up to his next hearing on February 2, 2021. Dangerfield had two outstanding warrants for both the drug and battery charges. But what’s even more disturbing is that his Instagram page had Dangerfield flashing gang signs and glorifying violence. In fact, Dangerfield posted a rap song in which he sings “Fuck the Judge as he walked out of the courthouse.” (29 seconds in) https://soundcloud.com/armando-dangerfield/sets/snap As Reported by 360 News back on July 18, 2022 450 PENDING MURDER TRIALS OVERWHELMING VEGAS COURTS Right now may be the best time ever to commit a murder. Low bail, 3 to 4 years before you see the inside of a courtroom, and the plea deals are flying off the shelf. Currently, there are over 450 people charged with murder awaiting trial in Clark County. The system has completely collapsed, according to defense attorneys 360 has spoken with. Even though our liberal judges give many folks charged with murder bail, most cannot afford the bail and are stuck in jail awaiting trial. And about a third of those charged with murder do bail out and are now back on the streets.
