An alleged Minneapolis domestic abuser has been arrested and charged with murder he’s said to have carried out weeks after being released thanks to a bail fund backed by Vice President Kamala Harris.
George Howard, 48, was bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) on August 6 after being held on $11,500 on charges of domestic abuse.
Weeks later, George Howard was charged with murder when he killed another motorist on I-94 during a road rage incident on August 29.
The victim has been named as 38-year-old Luis Damian Martinez Ortiz who was declared dead after he was shot in the chest by George Howard.
MFF’s work, which helped free George Howard to supposedly kill, was promoted by Vice President Kamala Harris during her campaign last year.
Kamala Harris tweeted that if you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.
Surveillance footage obtained by the Minneapolis Police Department captured the road rage incident that transpired near the entrance ramp of the interstate.
According to KSTP-TV, George Howard was reportedly driving a white Volvo with Ortiz in a blue BMW.
The footage showed the moment Ortiz was shot after he approached George Howard’s vehicle only to collapse soon after.
Ortiz later crashed into the centre median after getting back into his vehicle and was taken to a local hospital where he was declared dead.
After George Howard fled the scene, footage revealed him driving to a nearby gas station where he then switched with another passenger in the vehicle.
The passenger, who supposedly was in the vehicle at the time of the shooting, alleged that Ortiz had punched George Howard before the shooting occurred.
George Howard, however, insists he didn’t kill Ortiz but that another passenger in his vehicle did.
The incident remains under investigation and the identity of the other passenger is currently unclear.
George Howard was charged with one felony count of second-degree murder with intent and one felony count of second-degree murder without intent, and he could face up to 80 years in jail if he’s found guilty of the charges. Details of the original domestic abuse allegation against him haven’t been shared.
In response to the event, the MFF tweeted on Friday that they were aware of reports of the terrible and fatal shooting in Minneapolis, supposedly involving George Howard, a person the Minnesota Freedom Fund had previously provided with bail support.
Kamala Harris probably won’t go near Minnesota for years now.
Sadly people don’t have a psychic vision and have no way of knowing if someone will perpetrate a further in the future when given bail, but it does appear as though the administration is a shambles, and I’m sure this isn’t the only person who’s been freed by this fund that has gone on to kill and victimise people.
And Kamala Harris will probably laugh it off as she seems to about everything else. A typical masking method and when you haven’t got a clue what to say, smile and hope that it will go away.
If there were real media, someone would ask her about this, but it’s too bad there aren’t any with any guts. So Kamala Harris, what do you have to say for yourself? I’m sure the many readers would like to hear what you have to say about this incident.
Of course, there are some people out there that should have the right to bail, but it’s determining who those people are and what they’ve done, and taking an educated guess does not suffice.
