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!

“Since 2020 began, as of Friday at midnight, robberies are up 32.5 percent, car theft is up 61 percent and burglaries are up 18 percent compared to the same time period last year,” The New York Post reported. “And the numbers aren’t fractions either — a total of 233 more robberies have happened this year compared to last, 159 more car thefts and 125 more burglaries, just in the last three weeks.”

“In the first three weeks of this year, we’re seeing significant spikes in crime. So either we forgot how to police New York City, or there’s a correlation,” Shea said. “If you let out individuals that commit a lot of crime, that’s precision policing in reverse and we’re seeing the effects in a very quick time, and that is why we’re so concerned.”

“People say it just took effect, you can’t have consequences already. Take a look at the comp stat,” Shea continued. “We’re seeing it immediately at the same time that you have [state and local jail] populations dropping significantly. Now don’t tell me there’s not a correlation to that.”

“You have to have a situation where dangerous individuals, or individuals that repeatedly commit crimes and victimize people, are kept in,” Shea added. “And if judges don’t have that ability, I think we’re all in trouble, and I don’t think any New Yorker wants that to happen.”

Fake news. How can crime be sky rocketing if no one is sitting in jail? If there are no prisoners there is no crime.

Clearly toxic masculinty WHYTE SUPREMACIST fake news. Only WHYTE people would say crime is sky rocketing when they have no prisoners. Whats next you are going to tell me that antisemetic attacks are on the rise in New York, that they support 3rd term abortions? FAKE NEWS.

I love megacities. They are like an infectious disease lab but for the study of ideas and the development of inoculations. Sometimes it leaks out and gives the entire state or the entire country a bout of coronavirus, but in most cases it allows more sensible people to observe from a distance and to vote accordingly.

How racist of people not wanting to be robbed while taking the subway. The nerve of some people. Crackers need to learn and just accept that they are racist for complaining when they are robbed or assaulted.
