Skip to comments.Police Chief: Arrested Looters in NYC Are Immediately Released Because of Bail-Reform Law
Posted on 06/02/2020 4:22:17 PM PDT by karpov
Most of the looters and rioters arrested by the NYPD over the past several days are immediately released as a direct result of New Yorks new bail-reform law, New York City police chief Terrence Monahan told the New York Post on Tuesday.
While the city police made over 650 arrests on Monday night alone, Monahan said that just about all of them will be released without bail.
We had some arrests in Brooklyn where they had guns, [and] hopefully [Brooklyn district attorney] Eric Gonzalez will keep them in, [but] I cant guarantee thatll happen, Monahan said. But when it comes to a burglary [at] a commercial store, which is looting, theyre back out. . . . Because of bail reform, youre back out on the street the next day. You cannot be held on any sort of bail. I spoke to [Manhattan district attorney] Cy Vance about that, he told me theres nothing he can do.
New Yorks bail-reform law, which went into effect earlier this year, eliminates the bail requirement for suspects accused of most misdemeanors, including burglary and stalking. Suspects in violent felonies are still required to post bail. Even before the law was adopted, New York law forbade judges from considering many suspects potential danger to the community before setting bail.
New York City has seen widespread rioting and looting during demonstrations sparked by the death of George Floyd, an African-American man who was killed during a confrontation with white police officers in Minneapolis, Minn. The NYPD has stated that organized groups of anarchists are targeting stores in wealthy neighborhoods, especially in lower and midtown Manhattan. On Tuesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo slammed both the NYPD and Mayor Bill de Blasio for their handling of the riots.

...God forbid you open a barber shop, though...
No national guard, police stand down and those that are arrested are released. That’s a solid game plan.
NYC is LOST!
Time to withdraw.
Those people got what they voted for, didn’t they?
All part of the plan wasnt it?
Arrest this man.
For heaven’s sake. Let’s get our heads in the game.
Well heck yeah. If you keep them they might get CV-19. Not much chance of lead poisoning in nyc. Except maybe in little Italy.
Grinning rioter put in cop car: “I be in an outta there quick, suckas.”
Almost like it was planned in advance by the Dems / Deep State.
Strip New York of its statehood and put it under federal receivership.
Make the territorial governor Sarah Palin.
I used to care
Once arrested and held for charges and trial, we will find out their names, where they came from, and who is funding them.<
The last thing Democrats want is a paper trail. So, the rioters are set free.
I’m beginning to see a complete lack of leadership at any
Riots continue across the board. Hundreds of billions of
destruction, dead innocents, and misguided people admitting
they stand with the anarchists.
Is there one collective brain left in America?
“NYC is LOST!”
It’s been lost. What’s the point in police putting their lives on the line if the legislature makes sure criminals can’t stay locked up?
One designed to fail.
Ain’t happening in Los Angeles Co.
The DA says looting is outside catch-and-release.
Stay locked up till you see a judge.
I say this with my brother living there: Police need to stand down and do nothing. The asstards living there voted for this so give them what they want. They want no police, no jail for criminals, politicians who support this terrorism, fine, have fun.
