Virginia: Man in jail for rape released due to COVID concerns goes and kills his accuser

From the Washington Post of all places:

The incident in Karla Dominguez’s apartment last October was violent, and it was not consensual, she testified in Alexandria District Court in December. The man she accused was indicted on charges including rape, strangulation and abduction and jailed without bond in Alexandria.
Then the coronavirus pandemic hit. Ibrahim E. Bouaichi’s lawyers argued that the virus was a danger to both inmates and their attorneys, and that Bouaichi should be freed awaiting trial. On April 9, over the objections of an Alexandria prosecutor, Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins released Bouaichi on $25,000 bond, with the condition that he only leave his Maryland home to meet with his lawyers or pretrial services officials.
On July 29, Alexandria police say, Bouaichi, 33, returned to Alexandria and shot and killed Dominguez outside her apartment in the city’s West End.
When police couldn’t find Bouaichi after the slaying, they issued a video news release asking for the public’s help in locating him, declaring him “armed and dangerous.” Then on Wednesday morning, federal marshals and Alexandria police spotted Bouaichi in Prince George’s County and pursued him, causing Bouaichi to crash, authorities said. When the police went to arrest Bouaichi, they found he had apparently shot himself. He was reported to be in grave condition Thursday.

This is what happens when politicians and lefty activists within the criminal justice system get what they want. They care more about the safety of the criminal than the victim. The people behind his release are just as responsible for Karla’s death as this monster is. Since a firearm was used, I’m sure the Virginia Democrats will try and push gun control (only affects non-criminals) over this. We know the backers of the elected VA Dems over at Moms Demand Action are glad the victim didn‘t defend herself, though.
