Minnesota Man Freed by Kamala Harris-Supported Bail Fund Charged with Murder

A domestic abuser who was released from prison through the help of a Minnesota bail fund actively supported by Vice President Kamala Harris has now been charged with murder. 

George Howard, 48 from Minnesota, shot another driver August 29 on the 94 interstate entrance in cold blood just weeks after the Minnesota Freedom Fund had him released from prison August 6 after paying his $11,500 bail. The victim killed by Howard was taken to the hospital but quickly pronounced dead with a gun shot wound to the chest. 

The victim has been identified as Luis Damian Martinez Ortiz, 38.

Howard, who was already banned from owning and possessing firearms due to his domestic assault case, has since been charged with two counts of second-degree murder by the City of Minneapolis. 

During last year’s Black Lives Matter riots, the Minnesota Freedom Fund sought to release rioters, some of whom assaulted police, destroyed property, blocked freeways, and more. 

Harris proudly asked her followers to donate to the fund on Twitter. 

“If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota,” she wrote.

After Howard’s killing due to the fund’s incompetence was discovered, the fund announced in a now-deleted Tweet that they “are closely monitoring developments,” but that they are still committed to the principle that every person offered bail should be allowed to go free. 

“MFF believes that every individual who has been arrested by the law enforcement is innocent until proven guilty, and if a judge deems them eligible for bail, they should not have to wait in jail simply because they don’t have the same income or access to resources as others,” the fund wrote. 

Because of the fund, an innocent person is now dead. 

In the days since, Harris has been campaigning for California Governor Gavin Newsom while both of them are under fire for releasing criminals that are charged with murder. Polls conducted in regards to the recall election show that Californians across party lines are fed-up with Newsom’s handling of homeless and surging crime, including his decision to release up to 76,000 inmates for “good time credits.”

Harris has refused to comment on the matter, according to Fox News.
