A Minnesota bail fund backed by Kamala Harris helped free Shawn Michael Tillman, a repeat felon, who has now been charged with murder.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Freedom Fund executive directors Mirella Ceja-Orozco and Elizer Darris defended the group’s decision to post Tillman’s bail in a statement Thursday, saying, “It is neither just nor effective to respond to violence by denying bail and preemptively punishing people who are disproportionately poor, Black, brown, and Indigenous.”

Tillman is not the first person to commit murder after being bailed out by the Freedom Fund. The group helped free a man charged with domestic abuse last year. Weeks later, he murdered another man in a road rage incident, the Free Beacon reported.

The group also shelled out $75,000 in cash to release Jaleel Stallings, who was charged in May 2020 with attempted murder after shooting at police during the Floyd riots.

Minneapolis saw the highest number of homicides last year since the mid-1990s.

The Gateway Pundit reported that another man, freed by the same fund, was charged with murder last year.

George Howard shot and killed another man during a road rage altercation last month, just weeks after he was released from jail on $11,500 bond.

The Minnesota Freedom Bail Fund bailed George Howard out on August 6 and he was charged with two counts of second-degree murder on August 29.
