NY leaders ignore Post’s evidence that no-bells feed rising crime

Make no mistake: New York’s rising recurrence rate is worse than it looks. What will they have to do before state leaders acknowledge that they need to take their recent criminal-justice reforms seriously?

Post review of NYPD data on burglary and theft suspects reveals Three times Re-arrest from 2017 within 60 days after the initial charge, before the state’s controversial bail-reform law took effect.

ie: the police catch a crook, then catch the same Again Within two months – three times more than four years ago, as almost all are now freed immediately after each arrest.

and again-Attacker The rates are definitely higher. That is, Perp has committed other crimes in the interim without being caught.

Statistics show how revolving-door justice drives up crime rates:

  • Suspects arrested for shoplifting last year committed more serious offenses – less than two months after 21.6% were charged with a felony.
  • Of last year’s theft suspects, 23.7% were re-arrested within 60 days, down slightly from 27.6% in 2020 but up slightly from 7.7% in 2017.
  • For mass thefts, recidivism jumped from 6.5% four years ago to 19.7% in 2021.
  • The re-arrest rate of accused auto thieves doubled from 10.3% in 2017 to 21% last year (down slightly from 26.8% in 2020).

These are the “All-Stars” in the city’s rogue gallery of alleged repeat offenders:

  • Serial burglar Charles “Teflon Con” Wold told The Post how “grateful” he was that judges repeatedly released him from custody last year amid a three-month crime spree in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Prosecutors jailed him on $10,000 bail after failing to appear twice on previous court dates and repeatedly violating probation and parole.
  • Michelle McKelly has been arrested more than 100 times on shoplifting charges, repeatedly released without bail.
  • Days before the alleged attack on a cop at a Manhattan subway station, the 16-year-old accused was arrested on a robbery charge and released without bail.
  • Lorenzo MacLucas was arrested on charges of shoplifting a month after he went on supervised release from a previous shoplifting charge. He was arrested 128 times and missed 22 court appearances.
Serial burglar Charles “Teflon Con” Wold told The New York Post how “grateful” he was that judges released him from custody repeatedly.

All because New York’s “reformed” laws allow bail only for the most serious burglaries—where the perp is armed with a deadly weapon or injures someone. and in fact All Theft suspects are released without posting bail or bonds.

Top State Senate Democrats Andrea Stewart-Cousins ​​and Gov. Kathy Hochul cite data analysis by the Times-Union to say the claim to show bail reform is not a crime. But they ignore the analyzes that reject T-Yu’s work.

anyway, if they’re trusting One Newspapers, if they ignore the work of the Post, they are removing their true bias.

Stewart-Cousins ​​No. 2, Sen. Mike Gianaris, is worse, claiming that Adams is just “right-wing propaganda” when the senator is well aware that progressives like Albany DA David Soares make similar points, and with the data to return it.

Last week, Mayor Eric Adams said Assembly Speaker Carl Hesty had agreed to review the same NYPD repeat offender data as new bail-reform changes. but a heisty flake a contrast account offered: “Most of the speaker’s conversations with the mayor focused on the fact that the offenses he was referring to were bailable and deserved detention in family court.”

Even if those claims are true, “qualified” simply means that it is technically possible for a judge to do the right thing. But, at least, there are judges across the state. Explanation Laws making bail nearly impossible. Was that Hesty’s intention, or not?

Crime is increasing across the state, Mr. Speaker, and it is your duty to address it. You don’t need to play Pontius Pilate and just wash your hands.
