OH: Reagan Tokes Act passes Ohio House

[10tv.com – 6/21/18]

A bill named after murdered Ohio State student Reagan Tokes cleared a major legislative hurdle.

The Ohio House version of the Reagan Tokes Act was passed 83-3 during a floor vote Wednesday afternoon.

“This is huge day, certainly thrilled that this received such bi-partisan support,” Rep. Kristin Boggs, D – District 18 one of the primary sponsors of the bill.

House Bill 365 would dramatically change how violent felons are sentenced to prison and how they are watched once they are released.

The legislation followed a series of 10 Investigates reports that exposed failures of the state’s parole system to closely track Golsby and others.

  1. Two states east

    Typical TV news; they conviently leave out that the Ohio session ends next week leaving no time for their House to deal with it. In addition, there was all kinds of opposition from many parties. One troubling thing in this mess was the Ohio ACLU had stated that they were not against indeterminate sentencing.

      The recent leak of an ACLU memo pretty much explains why this is so. ACLU is no longer objectively defending all civil liberties. In essence, they’ve joined the partisan fray defending only what they (and their contributors) like. Given the level of disdain snowflakes and millennials for free speech, it’s not surprising. Those two groups deserve the country they’re creating for themselves. Sadly, those of us who believe in and cherish the Constitution and *all* its rights will have to live in the same sh!tty world they create.

        The irony in this is that as a general norm for humans, we get more conservative with age, despite our liberal youth. In 20-30 years, many of these people will be the victims of their own doing. And they won’t see it as such. They’ll just blame the then generation on the problems they themselves created.

        Yes big difference between liberals and leftist virtue signalers that crave having their identity victimized. I wish there was an ACLU for libertarians and constitutionalist. Judicial watch is a start
