Man Charged With Kidnapping And Assault Released On $2 Bail, Promptly Commits Another Alleged Kidnapping And Assault

A Texas man released on a $2 bail for allegedly choking and kidnapping his former girlfriend was rearrested within days for continuing to threaten her, KHOU 11 reported.

Aubrey Taylor was arrested after allegedly holding his former girlfriend hostage, choking and terrorizing her on Dec. 27 in Harris County, Texas. He was offered a $2 bond — $1 for each count — during his court date on Jan. 13 and was rearrested on Jan. 18 for violating court orders and allegedly threatening the victim, according to KHOU 11.

“Repeat offender accused of beating woman gets $1 bond. Horrific,” said Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbot on Twitter. “Texans must feel safe in their communities. This session, we will eliminate the easy bail policies that allow dangerous criminals back onto our streets.”

After Taylor was rearrested, his bond was set at $45,000 for the kidnapping and $15,000 for the assault charge, KHOU 11 reported. This is not the first time Taylor has been charged with a violent crime; prior to his current charges, Taylor had eight prior felony convictions, according to Yahoo News.

“If I’m outraged, I can’t imagine what the victim, in this case, must be going through considering all she did,” said Andy Kahan of Crime Stoppers to Fox News.

The arrest comes after Texas passed Senate Bill 6 in 2021, which prohibits violent offenders from being released on their own recognizance, according to the Texas Tribune. Judge Josh Hill, responsible for setting the bail at $2 for Taylor, denies that his decision to do so was in retaliation to the new law.

Hill did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

    1. This is Harris County (Houston). It’s run by Democrats. County DA, Mayor, City Council. All very typical of a major U.S. city, with very typical results.

  2. There’s hundreds of documented cases of criminals released because of Democrat “no bail” laws committing additional crimes up to and including rape and murder. We can watch dozens of videos showing gangs of thugs looting jewelry stores and liquor stores and Department stores. In California if you steal under $950 worth of merchandize then it’s just a misdemeanor, so crooks are stealing with almost no fear of being apprehended and business are closing. Antifa riots with near impunity as CNN talking heads say that setting cop cars or buildings on fire is not “violence”, and Kamala Harris contributes to bail them out in the rare instance that they are arrested.

    Then, on the other hand, if you were anywhere near the Capitol on Jan. 6, you will be hunted down, arrested. put on a “no fly” list and have your life ruined forever. The DOJ and all the mainstream and social media ignore the massive crime sprees going on in major cities all over the country and instead feature never ending lies about “white supremacy is the biggest threat to the Homeland” or parents against CRT or child mutilation are “domestic terrorists”. They lecture us about the “rule of law” when, in fact, they have weaponized all the three letter agencies (the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA, and even the DOD) against their political opposition and Brandon calls half the country fascists. The democrats are the real “fascists” and “seditionists” and if they are not stopped soon they will completely destroy our country as we devolve into a lawless, dystopian, totalitarian society. Just like every other Communist/Socialist state in history.
