Gallagher Statement On Report That Sacramento Shooting Suspect Benefitted From Early Release (04/05/2022)

SACRAMENTO - Today, Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher (Yuba City) issued the following statement on the report that one of the suspects in the Sacramento shooting had been released early from prison despite prosecutors’ efforts to keep him behind bars: 

“This was a violent felon with a long rap sheet who should have been in prison. If he was, this tragedy might have been avoided. If this violence a few blocks from the Capitol doesn’t serve as a wake-up call to the policymakers in this building, I don’t know what will.”
