Michelle Lujan-Grisham on Crime

 

 


Keep high-risk violent offenders behind bars before trial

We will not relent from our commitment to establish a "rebuttable presumption" to make sure that high-risk violent offenders stay behind bars before trial. We'll tackle organized crime and the criminals who fund it through retail and commercial theft, smashing the syndicates that are terrorizing our business community. And we will continue to expand our police force to make sure our law enforcement has the personnel, training and tools to serve our neighborhoods effectively.

Millions invested in police departments

Ronchetti mentioned the rising crime in the state. He pledged New Mexico can do better regarding crime and education by choosing "a different path."

To the topic of rising crime in New Mexico, Ronchetti brought up the "soft on crime" approach the state has taken with some offenders. Also mentioned there are "10% less" state police officers than when Lujan Grisham entered office four years ago.

Lujan Grisham cited millions invested in police departments and other resources at their disposal now. The governor also brought up GOP actions that plagued the state budget.

Ronchetti rebutted with discussing the FBI raid of over 1 million fentanyl pills and went on to state that criminals are here due to the laxed policing.

We need tougher penalties for the worst of the worst

We need tougher penalties for the worst of the worst, the repeat offenders and those who have proven themselves to be a danger to our communities; I support rehabilitation and this administration has done a lot of good work in that area, but I stand with the families and communities who have been victimized unnecessarily by the violent criminals that this system needs to secure. The worst offenders, the most serious and dangerous criminals in our state, need to be behind bars, simple as that.

Dangerous, repeat offenders have got to be in jail

Let's all agree that the days of hardened, violent, repeat offenders not doing any real time, getting unwarranted second and third and fourth chances because our system is too broken to hold people accountable . those days must end and they must end now. New Mexicans are sick and tired of seeing predators circle in and out of custody, never facing the full force of the law. I am too. Dangerous, repeat offenders have got to be in jail.
