Who knew fucking criminals.....have to stay in jail.


In the three days since New York’s criminal justice reform law took effect, people charged with committing anti-Semitic hate crimes have made headlines because, under the law, judges freed them without bail.

That sloppy bail reform. If reoffending conditions are not set then what’s the point. In the UK you don’t have to pay for Bail but it’s automatic release unless you commit a serious crime and a Arms length list of restrictions are given.

Reading the article the law appears to be working just fine.

What isn't working is how it makes politicians look when they say "zero tolerance for hate crimes" and then immediately release people charged with them.

They'll probably put in a carve-out for a select group of charges, just like at least one other state has done.

It is working just fine. These poor people were just violently expressing their feelings towards Israel foriegn policy. They hold no animosity towards Jewish people when they scream fuck the Jews while attacking them. Plus everyone who has a Twitter account or ever heard a Democrat speak on the issue knows that only white supremacists emboldened by Trump hate the Jews.

If you stick your fingers in you ears anfmd head in the sand the problem goes away. Instead of dealing with the crime issue NY just decided to let people out with no bail and wow the prison population dropped. NY just solved crime.

Lol, now talking about reforming the reform. These fucking politicians are insanely stupid people. It blows my mind how out of touch our politicians can be.

We have solved the real problem here though. Criminals with no money have the right to not go to jail. It's very unfair.

It's like New York City is trying to one-up San Francisco at who's the worse city.
It's a tough field, what with Portland, Seattle, and L.A.

Old time standards are Baltimore, Chicago and Detroit (this city is secretly being gentrified...shh).

Next step get rid of the police, that will really bring down the crime rate. Would also solve the problem of institutional racism in the criminal justice system.

If there is no criminal justice system there can't be racisim!
