Rev. Franklin Graham torches soft-on-crime prosecutors, says God will hold them accountable

Thanks to a growing number of radical, progressive leftist attorneys general and district attorneys across the country, crime is soaring, and Americans — especially police officers — are paying the price, as violent criminals are released early only to go on killing sprees.

The situation has grown out of hand, to say the least, and according to Breitbart, it has Rev. Franklin Graham fired up. Graham took to Facebook recently and excoriated the soft-on-crime prosecutors who, in many cases, are directly responsible for letting out the very criminals who commit such atrocities. 

While he held nothing back in his criticism of such methods, Rev. Graham’s message was one of common sense and logic. He also reminded those very prosecutors that, ultimately, God will hold them accountable for their actions.

“This has been a horrific week for police departments across the country—New York, Houston, and other places where our men and women in blue are under attack, and prosecutors and attorneys general are allowing hardened criminals to commit crimes and walk back out onto the streets, sometimes within hours,” Graham wrote.

He added: “It isn’t hard to figure out that this puts the police and the public at great risk. These prosecutors and attorneys general need to be held accountable for what they are doing to our communities and how it is affecting people’s lives.”

“God holds all of us accountable, down to every word that we speak—and He demands truth because He is truth. Every Word from God is true. Pray for our law enforcement officers and especially for these families who are mourning the loss of their brave and heroic loved ones,” the conservative reverend concluded.

One of the most recent high-profile police murders was that of 22-year-old New York Police Officer Jason Rivera, who was shot and killed during a domestic violence call in East Harlem earlier this month.

Rivera’s funeral was nationally televised, and thousands — if not more — NYPD officers and supporters lined the streets of New York City outside of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, where Rivera’s funeral was held.

It was during the funeral service that Rivera’s widow, Dominique Luzuriaga, heavily criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in her eulogy. “I know you were tired of these laws, especially the ones from the new DA,” she said. “I hope he’s watching you speak through me right now.”
