Bail Reform

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. 

recidivism

noun

  1. The repeating of or returning to criminal behavior by the same offender or type of offender.
  2. Relapse into crime; the conduct or condition of a recidivist.
  3. The state or quality of being recidivous; relapse

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.

An accused serial shoplifter with 122 prior arrests was released again under New York state’s bail reform law despite even liberal Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office wanting him to remain in custody, according to a report
In 2020, New York state rolled out new criminal justice reform laws that eliminated cash bail and expanded pretrial release for several misdemeanor and felony charges. Since that time, thousands of violent criminal defendants have been released back on to our streets, free to wreak havoc in our communities. https://www.washingtonexaminer.
Gov. Kathy Hochul had a rare opportunity to fix New York’s broken bail laws. Instead, she chose to build a football stadium with a billion dollars in taxpayer money.
Police say Edison Cruz of the Bronx has been trying hard to go to jail, which is not easy to do in New York City. He kept getting arrested and they kept letting him go and, so really, what’s an up-and-coming convict to do? Kill somebody, police say. And shoot two innocent bystanders.
New Yorkers overwhelmingly support changes made to bail reform in the recently passed state budget – but only about a third believe it will help drive down crime, according to a new wide-ranging survey released Monday.
"The issues are very insignificant. Very limited," says State Sen. Anthony Palumbo, from New Suffolk. He says the changes to the current laws will not prevent repeat offenders, especially if judges can't determine a so-called "dangerousness standard" for newly arrested defendants who pose a risk to the public.
Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie strongly oppose giving judges more discretion to order bail or jail for defendants they deem dangerous, on the grounds that New York judges are racists. And that claim is even more ridiculous than it seems.
By a 56-30% margin, voters say the law has not been good for New York. In January 2020, voters thought the law was bad, 49-37%. Immediately after its passage, in April 2019, voters thought the law would be good for New York by a 55-38% margin.
State Senator Alexis Weik and her Senate Republican colleagues today joined with the father of a hero firefighter and members of law enforcement to call for changes to the state’s failing bailing laws.
State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins on Tuesday tried to foist some of the blame for Albany refusing to tighten its lax bail reform laws onto Gov. Kathy Hochul, saying the governor is clearly in Stewart-Cousins’ camp on the matter.
New York State’s bail reform law — which has allowed dangerous criminals back on the streets — “absolutely” needs to change, NYPD’s top cop said in a new interview
Since New York state reformed its bail system three years ago, fewer are staying in the Chautauqua County Jail. But that doesn’t mean its resulted in savings to county taxpayers.
Every woman or girl knows what this is like: Some stranger comes up to you and tries to talk to you. Do you entirely ignore him, and risk angering him? Or do you engage as minimally as possible, and try to find a way out of the interaction.
Oh, sure, having fresh human feces smeared all over your face isn’t like being slashed, shot or shoved in front of a moving train. It’s just revolting beyond belief and more evidence that New York has lost the will to defend its institutions, its people and its future.
Another day ending in “y,” another example of just how insane New York criminal justice has grown: On Tuesday, Frank Abrokwa, ID’d as the perp who smeared human feces on a straphanger’s face last week, got sprung again.
The career criminal charged in the Bronx feces attack bragged on social media about getting out of jail with no bail and boasted that he’d shoot anything he could get his “f—king hands on.”
He was freed Tuesday night in the Bronx feces attack because the charges are also not bail-eligible — even despite prosecutors’ request that he be held on $15,000 bond or $5,000 cash. https://nypost.
The sicko who allegedly smashed his own feces in a Bronx straphanger’s face joked with cops that “s–t happens” before sneering to a Bronx judge, “F–k you, bitch.”
