In memory of the victims and in hopes of avoiding future tragedy, this page is dedicated to telling the truth about bail reform.
On April 1, 2019, New York State Democrats passed sweeping criminal justice legislation that eliminated money bail and pretrial detention for nearly all misdemeanor and many felony cases. These changes removed the ability of judges to hold criminals pre-trial in cases where they were likely to go out and commit more crimes, also known as recidivism.
The result was a devastating increase in violent crime here in NY State. Once criminals became aware, there would be virtually no way to stop them from committing the same crimes over and over, they began to act with impunity. As law enforcement officers, it's become common to arrest someone and have the criminal released before the officer can finish the arrest paperwork and return to patrol. Horror story after horror story has ensued. Criminals who should have been held pre-trial have been free to commit anything from petty crime to murder. Unfortunately, criminals have taken full advantage of the get-out-of-jail-free card issued by the NYS Democrats.
Here's a story about a man named Cuomo and his Bail Reform Bunch. This isn't a comedy, it's a tragedy. Lives have been lost and families have been shattered because of the failed Hochul/Cuomo pro-crime changes to the bail laws.
Fortunately, former Gov Andrew Cuomo and former Senator Monica Martinez no longer hold office. You'll have a chance to cancel the whole show this November.
