Letter: Why did we release the prisoners for COVID-19?

To the Editor:

From March 1 to early May, Illinois released almost 4,000 inmates from prisons, 64 of which were convicted of murder and others charged with child sex crimes, assault and drug trafficking.

Thank you, Gov. Pritzker, for keeping us safe during the COVID-19 crisis.
