California Man Arrested for Tying His Starving 2-Year-Old Son to a Tree
Take a look at the piece of filthy human refuse above. Thanks to California's broken justice system, Jeffery Wilson may never face justice for the inhumane treatment he subjected his son to.
On Wednesday morning, the Mendocino Sheriff's Office released a statement on facebook describing Wilson's arrest and subsequent discovery of his son's living conditions:
As if the horrific treatment of Wilson's son wasn't bad enough, it gets worse.
Although this was not the first time Wilson had been contacted by law enforcement, it's likely this is his first arrest for child abuse.
Thanks to California's Proposition 47, a measure that reduced penalties for "non-violent" offenders, Wilson could very well be punished with a slap on the wrist.
From Capital Public Radio:
The cracks in Prop 47 become clear when examining Wilson's crimes — so long as he did not physically strike his son, then starving him and tying him to a tree are consider "non-violent" and therefore make him eligible for reduced penalties and early release.
California voters, you asked for this and you're getting what you wanted. Don't be surprised when men like Jeffrey Wilson come knocking at your doors, fearless in a state where the justice system has been neutered on their behalf.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
