Report: Dangerous criminal arrested again after being bailed out TWICE by Kamala Harris-backed “Freedom Fund”

Share:

MINNEAPOLIS, MI- A Minneapolis man whose criminal behavior has “raised significant concerns” for public safety was not once, but twice bailed out of jail by the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

According to reports, prosecutors in Hennepin County filed charges against 29-year-old Thomas Moseley for the third time since October 2020. Hennepin County District Attorney Mike Freeman described Moseley as an individual who engages in conduct that is “especially dangerous to others.”

The new charges filed this month include fifth-degree drug possession, possession of a dangerous weapon in a courthouse, and second-degree rioting while armed with a dangerous weapon. 

According to the charges, Moseley was previously arrested on property damage and gun possession charges, but was released after the Minnesota Freedom Fund posted $5,000 for his bail.

Reportedly, the gun possession charge was connected to an October 15, 2020 protest inside the Hennepin County Government Center, where the officers involved in George Floyd’s death were making a court appearance.

Officers also arrested Moseley on property damage charges stemming from an August protest and found him in possession of a Glock semi-automatic handgun. Authorities then obtained a search warrant to search his vehicle.

During the search of Moseley’s vehicle, officers found a massive cache of firearms and tactical gear, including three handguns, a shotgun, a semi-automatic rifle, a gas mask, and about 50 rounds of ammunition. Officers also found a stash of cocaine, mushrooms, and marijuana.

According to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, after his release Moseley was charged with second-degree rioting for his involvement in a “New Year’s Eve melee” in downtown Minneapolis. 

Allegedly, rioters involved in the New Year’s incident vandalized buildings in the downtown area with messages such as “down with American,” “kill cops,” “crimewave 2021,” America’s last year,” and “death to America. Moseley and four others were detained.

The charges stated:

“During the course of these detentions and investigation, officers recovered a handgun, knives, three cans containing a suspected wax and fuel substance, a green laser, mace, improvised spike balls, a taser, fireworks, gas masks, body armor, helmets, and 2-way radios. Additionally, it was learned that the group had a designated ’emergency medical technician.'”

Another criminal complaint field against Moseley said:

“His persistent efforts to acquire firearms and continued engagement in criminal conduct especially dangerous to others raises significant concerns for public safety.”

His unconditional release was set at $60,000 and the Minnesota Freedom Fund again covered his cost. In its press release, the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office explicitly named the Minnesota Freedom Fund. 

Over the summer of 2020, Vice President Kamala Harris tweeted support for the Minnesota Freedom fund. On June 1, 2020, she wrote:

“If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.”

The Daily Wire reported that the fund is also supported by “a dozen members of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.” The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) was established in the summer of 2020 to bail out rioters.

The group came under fire last summer after it raised $30 million in donations, many of which came from Hollywood celebrities and spending less than 1% of those funds on bailing out rioters.

Some of the individuals who have been bailed out by the MFF were dangerous criminals. Fox 9 Minneapolis reported:

“Among those bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) is a suspect who shot a police, a woman accused of killing a friend, and a twice-convicted sex offender.”

Fox 9 Minneapolis also reported at the time:

“According to attempted murder charges, Jaleel Stallings shot at members of a SWAT Team during riots in May. Police recovered a modified pistol that looks like an AK-47. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail.”

The fund also bailed out an alleged murderer, twice-convicted rapist who was at the time MFF posted his $350,000 bail. He was charged with kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault in two separate cases.

Moseley is currently in the Hennepin County Jail pending a $250,000 bond for a felony drug possession charge. He is also reportedly being investigated for additional firearms charges related to the the incidents above.

Report: ‘Bail fund’ promoted by Kamala Harris was used to free man who sexually abused his teen daughter

November 3rd, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC – Shortly after the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota, current Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee Kamala Harris promoted the Minnesota Freedom Fund. 

The fund is used to pay bail for those criminals that cannot afford to pay it. 

LET has reported several times in cases in which those that have benefited from the fund are released and go on to commit other crimes while free.  Now, according to the Daily Caller, the fund was recently used to release a man who had allegedly sexually abused his teen daughter.

The man in question, William Harold Jones, was taken into custody in May of this year after his 15-year-old daughter reported that he had been sexually abusing her.  The victim claimed that she was sleeping in her bed when Jones allegedly entered her room and sexually abused her.

The Caller believes that the Minnesota Freedom Fund paid for Jones’ bail because of a form he signed when he was released.  They said:

“Following his arrest, Jones signed a form indicating that the money posted for his bail should be returned to the MFF once he follows the terms of bail, indicating that the group paid for his release.”

Of course, in Harris’ promotion of the Freedom Fund, she asked people to donate in order to bail out people who were arrested for rioting and protesting.  However, the group itself says that they make no determinations on paying bond based on the charges the person is facing.  On their website, they say:

“We do not make determinations of bail based on the crimes that individuals are alleged to have committed.  We are, however, taking steps to strengthen our internal procedures for ensuring that those we bail out receive support, especially if they are in need of housing or medical treatment.”

Some of the cases in which the fund has been used to bail people out for are deeply concerning.  For instance, there’s the man who allegedly sexually battered an eight-year-old child in July. 

Then, there are the six different men who had been jailed over domestic violence charges from July through August of this year.  Five of those men had previous convictions for domestic violence; one has to wonder how the victims felt about their being released.

How about Lionel Timms, who was arrested on July 11 for third-degree felony assault.  The Freedom Fund decided that Timms was unduly oppressed because he was black and decided to bond him out.  After all, the legal system is designed to pick on minorities; he must have really been innocent, right?

He could have been, but then how do you explain his arrest for an almost identical crime on August 14?  This time, witnesses allege they saw Timms kick the victim, while he was on the ground, so badly that he suffered a fractured skull and a brain bleed. 

Had Timms stayed in jail, where he undoubtedly belonged pending his court date, the victim in this case would not have almost died from the beating.  When the fund was questioned about Timms’ release, they said:

“The Minnesota Freedom Fund is deeply saddened and troubled by the recent arrest of Lionel Timms in connection to the recent assault of a popular and well-respected member of our community…

“The Minnesota Freedom fund received a request from Mr. Timm’s attorney for a bail on July 27th, two weeks after he was first detained.  We paid his bail after working to first ensure that Mr. Timms would be provided with housing and other necessary support as Mr. Timms requested. 

“We operate within the confines of a criminal justice system that is often unjust and unfair, overwhelmingly to Black, brown and Native peoples…

“In this case, the criminal justice system failed, and we didn’t do enough to mitigate that damage by ensuring that Mr. Timms had the support he needed to safely come back to the community.”

Bombshell: Adidas makes substantial donations to Minnesota Freedom Fund, which bails out criminals

October 2, 2020

The Minnesota Freedom Fund currently works to pay the bails for people who are arrested in the state of Minnesota, regardless of why they are in jail.  They believe that this service is helping the communities in the state by paying “bail and immigration bonds for those who cannot otherwise afford” to do so. 

 

Some of these criminals that the foundation has paid the bond for have gone on to commit further, violent crimes that would never have happened if they remained in jail. 

Now, sports apparel giant Adidas, for some unknown reason, is proud that they are contributing financially to that goal.

Adidas announced on Twitter Sept. 29 that they were working to affect what they termed as “meaningful and lasting change” on cases of racial justice issues.  The way that they were combating the so-called issue was to match any donations made by their employees and enhance that donation by 200%.  The company said:

“We are matching employee donations by 200% through DEED, our online donation platform, to support nonprofit organizations driving racial justice and human rights for underrepresented communities. 

This currently benefits the NAACP, the National Urban League, Campaign Zero, ACLU, The Innocence Project, Transgender Law Center, and the Minnesota Freedom Fund.”

While it is clear that Adidas has liberal leanings, perhaps the worst of them is their contribution to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.  The reason, well, let’s get it straight from their website and their list of goals:

“Maximize the number of people we can release from cages through the payment of criminal and immigration bonds.

“Grow to support decarceration effort within the state of Minnesota.

“Deepen interventions that prevent pre-trial jailing by building participatory defense practices.

“Abolish cash bail in Minnesota.

“Advocate for wide-scale decarceration.

“Move for the end of detention based on immigration status, race/ethnicity, and class.

“Support organizations that transition resources and power to black, indigenous and communities of color, as well as the others directly harmed by cash bail and the justice system.

“Stand with national organizers and advocates for criminal and immigration justice change in Minnesota and across the country.”

 

If you are one of the people who think that the goals stated are not a bad idea, let us take a look at some of the cases that this group has proudly helped by paying the alleged criminal’s bail because they were, in the Minnesota Freedom Fund’s belief, oppressed.  For instance, there’s the man who allegedly sexually battered an eight-year-old child in July. 

Then, there are the six different men who had been jailed over domestic violence charges from July through August of this year.  Five of those men had previous convictions for domestic violence; one has to wonder how the victims felt about their being released.

How about Lionel Timms, who was arrested on July 11 for third-degree felony assault.  The Freedom Fund decided that Timms was unduly oppressed because he was black and decided to bond him out.  After all, the legal system is designed to pick on minorities; he must have really been innocent, right?

He could have been, but then how do you explain his arrest for an almost identical crime on August 14?  This time, witnesses allege they saw Timms kick the victim, while he was on the ground, so badly that he suffered a fractured skull and a brain bleed. 

Had Timms stayed in jail, where he undoubtedly belonged pending his court date, the victim in this case would not have almost died from the beating.

Adidas is not the only big name to give donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, celebrities also took part.  People like Seth Rogen, Steve Carrell, Josh Safdie, Don Cheadle, Ben Schwartz and others proudly donated.  And then, there are the political leaders that have taken part as well.

Of note, current Democratic Vice-Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris promoted the Fund on her Twitter account.  Although there is no record or indication that she herself donated, she at minimum appears to support it.  In addition, Reuters reports that at least 13 staffers working for Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden have donated to the Fund.
