Crystal Quade on Crime



State government needs to listen to local law enforcement

Quade said one of the biggest attacks on freedom in Missouri is that of the state government telling leaders in communities "what's best for them." Quade said in order to address crime, it was imperative that the state government listen to law enforcement officers, who she said often testify against what Republican lawmakers are trying to pass.

Don't expand definition of "dangerous felonies"

Coverage of SB600 by The Missouri Times: SB 600 changes the definition of "dangerous felonies" to include armed criminal action, carjacking, and conspiracy. Additionally, it denies eligibility to offenders of felonies involving a deadly weapon.

[The bill's sponsor noted]: "Much of our crime is caused by a small group of repeat offenders who are on the streets because liberal prosecutors release them on probation--65% of dangerous felons put on probation have re-offended. SB 600 ends this catch-and-release practice."

The bill has seen opposition from a number of organizations, including the ACLU and AFP-MO, which urged the governor to veto the bill. The organizations cited that the "bill doesn't make Missourians safer and forces taxpayers to pay half a billion dollars for two new prisons.

Legislative outcome: Passed Senate 27-2-2 on Feb/20/20; Passed House 97-51-14 on May/15/20; Minority Leader Crystal Quade voted NO; Signed by Governor Mike Parson on Jul/6/20
