Hes laughing all the way to the next bank.
A John Dillinger wannabe is on the loose thanks to lax bail laws that set him free despite his arrest in connection to four Manhattan bank robberies.
Sprung on Thursday, he promptly robbed a fifth bank, in Brooklyn, on Friday, law enforcement sources told The Post.
So cops spent Saturday hunting once again for fugitive Gerod Woodberry, who allegedly pulled four heists at Chase banks in Chelsea, the Upper West Side and the West Village between Dec. 30 and Jan. 8.
Because Woodberry allegedly robbed using a note, rather than a gun, no New York jail can currently hold him, no matter how many times he strikes.
His alleged grand larcenies are classified as non-violent felonies. And under the bail reform law that took effect Jan. 1, most non-violent felonies including bank robberies carried out without a weapon are no longer bail eligible, meaning no judge can order him held pending trial.
Should cops pinch Woodberry on the fifth alleged heist, hell only be sprung again.
The insanity of the new law clearly wasnt lost on the prime suspect.
I cant believe they let me out, Woodberry marveled as he retrieved his vouchered property at One Police Plaza in lower Manhattan, sources told The Post. What were they thinking?
NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea voiced his frustration after The Post broke Woodberrys story online Saturday.
What motivation does this suspect have to return to court? None, Shea tweeted.
This makes NYPD cops jobs harder, and makes New Yorkers less safe.

Since he robbed a bank the feds should step in.
Once the banks start complaining, hopefully the politicians will listen and change the law, the source said.
Don't count on it. Bribery and political graft are crimes, and where crimes are legal...
This sounds like a story from the Babylon Bee. Unfortunately it’s real.
As word gets out on the street about this, bank robbers will always use a note in New York, knowing that they won’t be held in jail.
The lesson to be learned here is ELECTIONS COUNT. Eighty percent of the people now being victimized stayed home sitting on their collective a@@es instead of making the effort to go out and vote for a decent candidate. That's how they ended up with DumblASSio, who is not fit to scrape dog poop off the streets, and the collection of mental cases making up the City Council and State Assembly. One of the members of the State Assembly, Speaker Carl Heastie (D), is much more interested in giving the "brothers" who commit most of the crimes more "equality" than he is in protecting the public. Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie says he has no intention of modifying New Yorks controversial criminal justice system overhaul, which has enraged prosecutors, police and some judges by nixing most bail requirements and forcing early production of evidence in cases. This fellow, a classic case of S for Brains, said, We want safe communities but it is important to have a criminal justice system that treats everybody equally. OK, so everyone has an equal chance NOT to commit crimes, Mr. Heastie, but blacks are committing a disproportionately large number of the crimes. That's a fact. So ALL criminal scum should be released, across the board, with no bail, so that your "brothers" can have more chances to injure, rob, or kill someone? That is the kind of mental giant NYS has in their State Assembly. Heastie's "sister" in the Assembly, Andrea Stewart-Cousins, is also concerned more with the justice system not coming down on blacks so much, so she suggested "tweaking" these horrendous new laws instead of getting rid of them all together, as any rational being would do. You can clearly see with this how libtardism leaves nothing but ruin in its wake.
Why bother catching him?
The cops should just drop him off at DaCommieo’s compound.

Dems stop enforcing the laws.
Dems outlaw possession of firearms by law abiding people
Criminals run wild
Dem-Socialists announce that they must introduce a police state to restore order.
The Democraptic-Socialist state is created.
Only a matter of time before this insane policy by the treasonists results in a death and when it does, I hope the victims family sues that city into bankruptcy, that’s if there’s any money left considering all the cash that absolute sick bastard DeBlasio gives to crooks.
In this spirit, I propose a new volunteer group, made up of citizens and members of the business community, who will wait outside of police stations, meet up with recently released inmates, and welcome them back into the community.
“And under the bail reform law that took effect Jan. 1, most non-violent felonies including bank robberies carried out without a weapon are no longer bail eligible, meaning no judge can order him held pending trial. “
More Liberal insanity
You nailed it. That’s the blueprint.
Why bother arresting him again with no bail?
Sounds like that social justice bullsh## is working according to plan
I believe the no-bail law is a state law passed by the democrat-controlled legislature and signed by the democrat governor.
