(Tea Party PAC) – With the current protests and violent riots raging in response to the tragic death of George Floyd, one thing has become super clear. Leftists have created laws and regulations that actually favor the less desirables in our society and have made allotments for those who are anarchists and troublemakers.
A good example of this is the current bail reform law in New York City, which is enabling jailed arsonists in the city who have destroyed businesses and neighbors — all in the name of fighting for equality of course — to basically get away with their crimes and be released from jail.
Good work, Gov. Cuomo.
Heck, this might even be worse than his botched handling of the coronavirus crisis.
Here’s more on this from Breitbart:
For many nights now, arsonists have set ablaze New York City Police Department (NYPD) vehicles, city dumpsters, and rubble on the streets of New York City. Those arrested for arson, if arrests are made, will spend less than 24 hours in jail.
At the beginning of the year, Cuomo signed into law a bail reform measure that has eliminated bail for accused criminals involved in nonviolent and violent crimes, including for suspects accused of second-degree manslaughter, aggravated vehicular assault, third-degree assault, promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child, criminally negligent homicide, aggravated vehicular homicide, and about 100 other crimes.
The law also eliminated bail for suspects accused of third-degree arson, fourth-degree arson, fifth-degree arson, third-degree arson as a hate crime, fourth-degree arson as a hate crime, and fifth-degree arson as a hate crime, ensuring that arsonists who set fire in the streets are immediately released after their arrangements.
Already, as Breitbart News reported, more than 400 suspects arrested in New York City riots over the last few days are set to be released from jail following their arraignments without ever having to pay bail.
Back in March, NYPD officials stated that in the first 58 days of the year, almost 500 suspects who normally would’ve been kept behind bars were released thanks to the bail reform laws and had actually been rearrested for participating in an additional 846 crimes.
Let that sink in for a minute.
The state of New York allowed all of these criminals back out on the street, which allowed them to resort back to their depraved natures and commit crimes that could have been prevented had this law not been in effect. If you are a resident of the state of New York, this should make you absolutely furious.
Some of the additional crimes these miscreants were nailed for include murder, rape, robbery, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny auto. In other words, these were violent offenders. These aren’t petty criminals busted with a tiny bit of marijuana in their pockets. Legit, hardened criminals were let back out onto the streets and some people paid with their lives.
And now, those destroying the city in the name of social justice will be given a free pass too.
