Just look at this statement:
“Mr. Barry’s case underscores the need for economic stability and meaningful social services, not a need to roll back bail reform,” the Legal Aide Society, which represents Barry, said in a statement. “Locking up Mr. Barry on unaffordable bail or worse, remanding without bail, ultimately does nothing to protect the public and fails entirely to address his actual needs.”
Does nothing to protect the public? And this comes from a tax payer funded society that relies on criminals to stay in business. The stupidity of democrats just cannot be overstated. This guy is LAUGHING at the white fools who put up with the lunacy of democrat elected officials. In his own words, “I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!”
You cannot make this stuff up.
And the second story is even more horrible. These are sick men but the politicians and the judges are EVEN SICKER.
NYC subway thief thanks Democrats after his 139th arrest, release: ‘Bail reform, it’s lit!’
A New York City man who’s now been arrested 139 times thanked Democrats for guaranteeing his immediate release despite repeatedly swiping hundreds of dollars from unsuspecting subway commuters since the state’s new bail reform law went into effect Jan. 1.
Charles Barry, 56, has been arrested six times since the start of this year. He’s been released each time without having to post bail under New York’s new bail reform law since his alleged offenses were nonviolent, the New York Daily News reported. In the past, Barry’s served several stints in state prison and has a lengthy record, including six felonies, 87 misdemeanors and 21 missed court hearings, the newspaper reported, citing court records.
“Bail reform, it’s lit!” Barry yelled to reporters Thursday outside the NYPD Transit District 1 headquarters in the Columbus Circle station before officers transported him to Manhattan Central Booking. “It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”
After his most recent arrest Thursday, Barry was held in custody for about 36 hours until his Saturday morning arraignment hearing in his Manhattan Criminal Court. He was then released before trial without paying bail. He had two warrants out for his arrest for missing court dates related to past alleged subway theft, including one instance in January when he allegedly snatched a $50 bill out of a woman’s hand while she was trying to buy a Metro card at a Bryant Park station machine.
Officers arrested him Thursday after he was spotted jumping a subway turnstile in Penn Station. Barry, a career criminal, has repeatedly duped subway-goers by dressing as MTA officials and robbing people after offering to help them buy their tickets, police said.
“I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cr—-r! You can’t stop me!” Barry shouted to reporters. “It’s a great thing. It’s a beautiful thing. They punk’ed people out for bullsh– crimes.”
A high-ranking official in the New York City Police Department said because of the new bail reform law, offenders like Barry are released and then repeat the same crimes because judges cannot order them to be held in jail before trial. Sometimes, what begins as a nonviolent crime often turns violent if a robbery goes awry, he added.
“At least before, he’d be remanded and be behind bars for a couple of days. He wouldn’t be able to victimize people,” Assistant Chief Gerald Dieckmann, the No. 2 officer in the NYPD’s Transit Bureau, told the New York Daily News. “When someone doesn’t pay them or give them the money, it’ll turn into a robbery, a slashing an assault.”
But Legal Aid Society, which represents Barry, argued the NYPD is using a few cases to spread fear over the new bail reform law.
“Mr. Barry’s case underscores the need for economic stability and meaningful social services, not a need to roll back bail reform,” the society said in a statement. “Locking up Mr. Barry on unaffordable bail or worse, remanding without bail, ultimately does nothing to protect the public and fails entirely to address his actual needs.”
92-Year-Old Woman Raped, Murdered After NYC Sanctuary Policy Sets Criminal Free
“Clearly the politicians care more about criminal illegal aliens than the citizens they are elected to serve and protect,” U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) said in a statement, The Washington Times reported.
Reeaz Khan, who is an illegal immigrant from Guyana, was arrested on Nov. 27, 2019 after he attacked his father in their South Richmond home, the New York Post reported.
Khan’s 41-year-old father had to be hospitalized after his son used a broken ceramic mug to slash his father’s arm and chest.
Court records showed that Khan was charged with misdemeanor assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and harassment, the New York Post reported.
The records also showed that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents placed a detainer request on him the day he was arrested.
However, because of New York’s new bail laws and the mayor’s liberal policies, Khan was released without bail after the judge issued a temporary order of protection for his father, the New York Post reported.
Only six weeks passed before Khan allegedly sexually assaulted and strangled 92-year-old Maria Fuentes.
“It was a deadly choice to release a man on an active ICE detainer back onto the streets after his first arrest included assault and weapon charges, and he now faces new charges, including murder,” Thomas Decker, ICE’s New York field-office director of enforcement and removal operations, said.
“New York City’s sanctuary policies continue to threaten the safety of all residents of the five boroughs as they repeatedly protect criminal aliens who show little regard for the laws of this nation,” Decker added.
Court papers said the elderly woman was found lying in the freezing weather about two hours after she was attacked by Khan, the New York Post reported.
Fuentes died from injuries that included rib fractures and a broken spine at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center.
Investigators found surveillance video that showed the before and after of the attack and shared it with the public to identify Fuentes’ murderer, the New York Post reported.
Khan’s brother was one of multiple people who identified the suspect for police.
Assistant District Attorney Joseph Grasso said that after Khan was taken into custody, he told detectives that he had found his victim lying on the ground, the New York Post reported.
The 21 year old said he was trying to help Fuentes when he “fell down, his belt broke, his pants fell down and his penis fell near her vagina,” Grasso said.
“Defendant then stated that he did lift up her skirt and tried to put his penis inside of her,” the prosecutor added.
Khan was charged with two counts each of second-degree murder and first-degree sexual abuse, according to the New York Post.
“Maria Fuertes’ blood is on Mayor de Blasio’s hands,” a retired New York Police Department (NYPD) detective said.
He said “it was only a matter of time before this would happen” with the city’s polices regarding ICE detainers, the New York Post reported.
The mayor’s sanctuary policy only allows NYPD to turn over illegal immigrants to ICE if they’ve been convicted of “serious or violent felonies.”
NYPD released a statement that said they had never received the ICE detainer for Khan, the New York Post reported.
However, ICE Spokeswoman Rachael Yong Yow said the agency had a fax confirmation receipt that proved a detainer request had been sent to NYPD’s Queens Central Booking at 7:41 a.m. on Nov. 27.
A spokeswoman for de Blasio expressed the mayor’s sympathies and chastised President Donald Trump’s administration for “politicizing this tragedy,” the New York Post reported.
