Today, Assemblywoman Missy Miller (R,C,I-Atlantic Beach) joined members of the Assembly Minority Conference in unveiling their “Restore Order” anti-crime agenda to tackle the dramatic uptick in violence we’ve seen across the state. A bill the assemblywoman sponsors is featured in the package which would make a “hate crime” a qualified offense for purposes of bail issuance and denying pre-trial (A.3986).
“It was absolutely heartbreaking to hear first-hand accounts of loss and grief from families who lost loved ones to horrific crimes. No mother should ever have to endure the suffering that Lois Bohovesky or Madeline Brame have after their children were murdered. I know the pain they are living with on a daily basis and my heart goes out to them,” said Miller.
“I’m proud to stand with the Minority Conference to announce our ‘Restore Order’ anti-crime measures to help protect our neighborhoods. All parents should feel safe allowing their kids to walk to the park – unfortunately, as crime has skyrocketed, many don’t feel this way. It’s time we reverse our state’s pro-criminal agenda and restore safety to our communities.”
