John Chisholm, the progressive Milwaukee County District Attorney whose office released a man on a $1,000 bond on November 11 after he was accused of driving over a woman — only to see him allegedly drive his SUV into a Christmas parade on Sunday, killing at least five and injuring scores of others — said of non-violent offenders in 2007, “Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody? You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach.”
Chisholm made those assertions in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel in 2007 the year he was elected. “Chisholm’s premonition came true in 2013 when convicted drug dealer Jeremiah Schroeder, 35, was let out on a deferred prosecution and injected a fatal dose of heroin into Cassandra Lutz, a 26-year-old woman,” The Daily Mail noted.
Bob Lutz, the grandfather of Cassandra Lutz, who spent roughly 15 years as a Milwaukee police officer, said, “I’m pissed. I think Cassie had her problems. But she did not deserve this. Simple as that. If (Schroeder) would have been in jail the way he should have been, this would not have happened. She’d still be here.” – READ MORE
