Under new system, weapons charges no longer require preventative custody.
The measure has been criticized for allowing gun-toting gangsters back on the street while they await criminal procedures against them. Critics say they simply resume their criminal activities.
Sales suggested modifying the new justice system: “It’s not about dismantling it. On the contrary, we acknowledge that it is the best of systems.”
“We consider it elemental, but if you release people with [assault rifles], they are going to kill. What this is about is reforming the federal laws on firearms and criminal procedures in order to keep those individuals in preventative custody,” said the commissioner.
Sales thinks that if the law is modified the upward trend in intentional homicides could be reversed. He pointed to a statistic that says a firearm is used in seven of every 10 intentional homicides.
