Shock Report: Bail reform leads to more crime in NYC

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

New York City has experienced 22.5% rise in crime since the same time last year. Serious crimes such as robbery, assault, burglary, shooting, and auto crimes all saw increases.

The blame for the significant rise is being placed on new criminal justice reforms recently enacted into law. The NYPD stated in a press release, “Criminal justice reforms serve as a significant reason New York City has seen this uptick in crime.”

According to Politico:

In the first two months of the year, the NYPD says 482 people who were released after being charged with a felony where cash bail is prohibited went on to be arrested for 846 new crimes. Of those, 299 were the seven major crimes the department uses to calculate crime stats.

Mayor Bill DeBlasio, one-time Democrat presidential candidate who supported bail reform, is now recognizing it as the source of the rise in crime in the city, saying,  “There’s a direct correlation to a change in the law, and we need to address it, and we will address it.”

Governor Mario Cuomo, who previously demanded that the reforms be enacted, is now admitting that there are “unintended” consequences that need to be addressed. “We’re going to work on it because there are consequences we have to adjust for. There’s no doubt this is still a work in progress, and there are other changes that have to be made.” He is now demanding reform of the reforms.

Many voices cautioned that the new law would lead to an increase in crimes. It did.

Take, for instance, the case of Tiffany Harris, a 35-year-old in Brooklyn who was arrested for attacking three Jewish women in Crown Heights. She was then released because of the new bail law. She assaulted someone else the very next day. Hers is just one of the hundreds of similar stories since bail reform became law.

New Jersey also enacted bail reform but gave judges the power to detain some criminals for trial with the proviso of a speedy trial. They also provided funding for more judges. New Jersey has seen a spike in crime but it is not as steep as New York’s increases.

California lawmakers wrote SB10, a no-bail law that will go before the voters in the 2020 general election. Californians should look well to the New York and New Jersey before they approve such a law.

A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Superb Blog!|

  9. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your blog. It looks like some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before. Appreciate it|

  10. I would like to show some appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from this particular setting. As a result of looking out throughout the world-wide-web and meeting principles that were not powerful, I believed my life was gone. Being alive minus the approaches to the difficulties you have resolved as a result of your main guide is a crucial case, and the kind that would have in a negative way damaged my career if I had not noticed your web site. That natural talent and kindness in playing with everything was helpful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a stuff like this. I can at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for the impressive and amazing guide. I won’t think twice to endorse your web page to anyone who requires care on this problem.

  11. I do trust all the ideas you have introduced to your post. They are very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too brief for beginners. Could you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

  12. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos|

  13. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!|

  16. Appreciating the dedication you put into your website and detailed information you offer. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material. Great read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.|

  17. Si vous suivez ces quelques conseils, votre page Facebook remontera progressivement dans les résultats de recherche de Google. Mais comme toujours, il va falloir être patient et tenace… Mais rappelez-vous, dans l’algorithme de Google, le nombre de likes ou l’engagement de la page ne sont pas pris en compte et même si c’est positif d’avoir un grand nombre de likes, cela n’aura pas d’effet direct sur le positionnement de votre site dans les réponses du moteur. Et ne vous trompez pas, si votre but c’est la visibilité de votre entreprise sur Google, il vaut mieux travailler le référencement naturel de votre site internet directement.
