This NY Bail Reform is a complete mess. All these criminals are able to take advantage of it and are able to get out without having to post bail.
A four time bank robber was arrested after his fourth bank robbery. Got released with no bail. Robs a fifth bank, and when he was caught he states, “I can’t believe they let me out. What were they thinking?”
Here’s another one, a man enters a teenage girls bedroom, while she is in there, and steals money. He gets arrested, then released same day and after he is released, he smashes a police station window.
Or the story of a man charged with a DWI that killed a 27 year old man. He was released without having to post bail.
This is insane. How can this be ok?
These are the crimes that no longer require bail in New York.
So you can kill someone and not have to post bail. You can stalk someone and get arrested and not have to post bail.
And of course Bernie Sanders is in support of this ludicrous bail reform. He feels that the bail system is racist against black and brown people. However, look what it is doing.
