Why should laws, especially those of the soon-to-be-demographically-supplanted white man, apply to saintly people of color?

Especially when those laws disproportionately apply to people of color, forcing them into enclosed rooms at the expense of the taxpayer?

Just release them upon the community, regardless of why they were locked away.

After all, they are people of color, vibrant individuals collectively comprising the inevitable non-white future of New York and the United States. [Ending bail reform: Why some NY Republicans lawmakers want the law tossed, Democrat and Chronicle, December 19, 2019]:

ALBANY – Senate Republican leaders on Thursday again called on the Legislature to address growing concerns surrounding a series of criminal justice reforms set to take effect come the new year. 

Senate Minority Leader John Flanagan contended the reforms — set to take effect Jan. 1 — will endanger the public and place another unfunded mandate on communities at a time when the state is facing at least a $6.1 billion deficit. 

“At the end of the day, we don’t believe these changes in the law are going to keep people safer,” Flanagan, R-Suffolk County, said at an Albany press conference.

The reforms will end cash-bail for most non-violent felonies and misdemeanors and revamp the state’s discovery process, requiring prosecutors and law enforcement agencies to turn over evidence to the defendant within 15 days after arraignment. 

“We think our society and walking about the streets are going to be bigger challenges then it was before,” Flanagan said.

Senate Republicans, he said, will likely make concerns surrounding the reforms a key issue in next year’s election when all 63 seats in the chamber are on the ballot.

Democrats hold 40 of the seats, and eight of the 23 current Senate Republicans have declined to run for re-election in 2020.

Joining Flanagan were the Deputy Minority Leader in the state’s Senate, Joesph Griffo, and Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino, who spoke on behalf of the state’s Sheriff’s Association.

Republicans, law enforcement officials and district attorney’s across the state have for months criticized the reforms and want a moratorium on their implementation.

They have argued that they should have a greater opportunity to weigh in and give counties additional time to prepare. 

Proponents of the measures have said fears over the reforms are overblown and Democratic lawmakers — who hold the majority in both chambers of the state’s Legislature — have expressed no interest in delaying their implementation. 

“The reality is all these reforms will save taxpayer money, improve monitoring and oversight for suspects of low-level crimes, protect New Yorkers’ rights, and keep our communities safe,” Mike Murphy, a spokesman for the Senate Democrats, said in a statement. 

Giardino said law enforcement officials are in favor of criminal justice reforms, but added the current changes have “a lot of issues that are going to impact the public in a lot of ways.”

“I want to be clear about this…the sheriffs I’ve spoken with, the DA’s I’ve spoken with, all agree that we need reform for bail and discovery, but everybody wants reasonable reform,” he said.

The new bail law, he said, would allow burglars caught redhanded to be released on an appearance ticket before the victim returns home after giving their statement.

And the changes to discovery are an “unfunded mandate” that would a add an additional strain rural counties across upstate already constrained by limited resources.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who’s made reforming the state’s criminal justice system a key component of his administration in recent years, has said counties can carry out the reforms with preexisting resources.

“What we’re looking for, from a law enforcement standpoint, is a little breather of three to six months to work with the Legislature, to work with the governor, work with the Senate, to see what we can do to make it more practical,” Giardino said. 

But proponents of the reforms argue cash bail has disproportionately impacted people of color and individuals of low income who could not afford bail.

The state’s criminal justice system, they say, has become reliant on money rather than rehabilitation.

“We’re going to see a reduced reliance on money,” Nicole Triplett, policy counsel for the New York Civil Liberties Union, said a a press conference last month.

More than 3,800 people currently held on cash bail are expected to be released once the reforms take effect next month, most of whom are being held in county jails upstate. 

A new report released by the Brooklyn Community Jail Fund, which works to free individuals held on cash bail, found families paid an estimated $4.8 million to place phone calls to loved ones currently incarcerated in county jails in 2017 alone.

The report examined financial data from 19 counties outside of New York City obtained through a series of Freedom on Information Law Requests.

But the monetary costs are just a fraction of what families pay each year, said Peter Goldberg, the group’s executive director.

“Between lost wages, attorneys, and travel — not to mention the emotional toll — there is a deep societal cost to incarceration,” Goldberg said in a statement. 

Those who do evil to others should be in jail (or, if they commit murder or rape, executed swiftly), but in our world, the inverse true: those who do evil should be free to perform more nefarious acts upon the law-abiding, because people of color are disproportionately impacted by having to pay cash bail for their lawlessness.

    This is crazy left-wing talk. “Corrections” is a left-wing idea.

    A right-winger would never approve of prisons. In escalating order, try the workhouse, pillory, chain gang, transportation (exile), and the gallows.

If I didn’t pay the extra $300, my FL license would have been suspended, even though the other ticket had nothing to do with NY.

  12. It causes laughter beyond sanity. Cause and effect is a concept so unfamiliar to these people it truly boggles the mind. As if this is a problem that affects more minorities than whites. Maybe per capita, but when looked in sheer numbers it’s a lie. It’s no different than the lie told by black leaders and ignorant white apologists that more black people are killed by police every year than whites. Again when looked at from a per capita angle sure, but the truth on that is far too tough for some to accept.

    I was driving thru NY to CT and got stopped, I had a legally owned .40 cal in my trunk that I brought from Florida, because I wasn't going to be caught short. It held 12 rounds, and I had 2 spare mags, which are considered high capacity in NY state, as well as the gun not being registered in NY (I live in FL, I am not a NY resident). The sentence for that was 3 1/2 years in prison, mandatory. I spent 3 days in county, and $10k in lawyer fees, plus numerous trips back for court appearances, and had to give up the gun ($650 value). When everything was finalized, the court clerk asked what type of gun it was, I told him, and he said "oh that's nice, I'll look for it when it comes up for auction".

    That's why I refuse to give that shithole of a state any more $$ than I have to. Florida still has a good amount of freedom left when it comes to gun & personal rights.

    A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
     
    Nowadays the Constitution is wrung and twisted in bizarre ways to justify all kinds of nonsense totally unrelated to anything the Founding Fathers may have imagined, including overt racial discrimination (Grutter v. Bollinger) and, perhaps most ignominiously, the "right" to end the life an unborn baby (Roe v. Wade).

    So I've never understood why there are not more, and more successful, challenges to gun restrictions, since the right to "keep and bear arms" is explicitly stated in the Constitution -- part of the problem has been frequent use of discretion by the Supreme Court to decline to hear arguments in gun rights cases.

    Maybe this will now change:

  15. anonymous[922] • Disclaimer says:

    This is already in place here in Chicago where the black state’s attorney has what’s called “affordable bail”. The idea is that blacks can’t afford bail when caught shoplifting or carrying a 9mm whereas a white millionaire can. Of course they just use terms like low income and poor instead of black but that’s what it really is. Black criminals get out repeatedly only to re-offend shortly thereafter. Crime is the new civil right. This disparate impact concept has provided a lot of mileage for blacks in all sorts of ways.

  16. Wouldn’t it be nice if the negroes just followed the law? Just think…they would be walking free without having to pay bail! People on the left are the dumbest people on the planet!

  27. Ultimately this will probably wind up with more criminals being killed. As their predatory behaviors increase (most committed within and against their own community) we will see more retaliatory homicides increase.

    Same thing happened when they overturned Stop and Frisk, more of them shooting at each other…

    Of course, some others will be caught in the cross-fire as well.

    That’s why White, Asians and some Hispanics must become very careful about crossing behind enemy lines after dark…

    • LOL: Mr. Rational
  36. Mayor DeBlowsio and his cast of Low IQ City Council of POC’s are determined to make NYC as unliveable as some of the shitholes from whence they came. A perp can now shit & and piss in the street, perps walk freely with guns stuffed in their sloppy sweatpants with no worry about stop & and frisk or worry of Bail . A Dindu sucker punched AN NYPD OFFICER this week and was released with no bail and back on the streets to terrorize probably before the Police Officer left the ER from his injuries & medical treatment…… you thought these savage perps were brazen after Obama & and lefty media ? Just wait , DeBlowsio & Andy Cuomo will make NYC a living breathing NIGHTMARE

    There was a similar incident in DC in 2015. An orc with a lengthy criminal record assaulted a DC policeman and was out the next day. Why? The charges were reduced from felony to misdemeanor and out he went. You'd think that assaulting a policeman would be taken seriously, but no.

    (Sidebar: DC happily reduces charges in order to make the city look less crime-afflicted than it really is. This practice is widespread all over the country. When there are fewer "reported" crimes, the mayors and police chiefs can pat themselves on the back and claim their "policies" are "working." Those on the receiving end of TNB know otherwise.)

    The next day Mr. Charming was aboard a DC Metro train when he attempted to steal a cell phone from a white guy who looked like an easy target. The victim resisted so the orc stabbed him 35 times and jumped up and down on him as he lay dying on the floor. Then the orc walked through the car with his bloody knife in hand, demanding from others to "Gimme what you got!"

    Being the criminal genius that he was, he was back in custody a couple of days later. Here's how it ended.

    There was, of course, some brief outrage that a known, violent criminal was let back onto the street to victimize people again, and of course the city said it would "get to the bottom of this," but I recall nothing more coming out. They sure didn't want to say this practice of "catch and release" was standard.

    It's a city run by and for orcs. What else can anyone really expect?

    To the story of the violent murder aboard a DC Metro train in 2015 I should add that the victim was a 2013 graduate of American University, which posted the following on its website:

    https://www.american.edu/spa/alumni/remembering-kevin-sutherland.cfm

    Excerpt:

    The Trumbull, Connecticut native left his mark on AU as a two-term secretary of the student government, an advocate for liberal causes, and a kind and passionate friend to many. Diving into life in Washington, Kevin interned for U.S. Representative Jim Himes and after graduation, worked for New Blue Interactive, a digital strategy firm that helps Democratic candidates’ fundraising programs.

    In case you’ve never heard of New Blue Interactive, you’ll find a description here:

    https://www.newblueinteractive.com/about/

    Excerpt:

    New Blue Interactive (NBI) is a powerhouse full-service digital firm that specializes in helping Democratic candidates/causes and non-profit organizations bring their digital programs to the next level of sophistication. New Blue was founded by Taryn Rosenkranz, a leading digital pioneer who has created successful digital programs that have effectively persuaded millions of American voters and raised millions of dollars for Democratic campaigns and progressive causes. NBI’s leadership has a proven track record in counseling literally hundreds of candidates, non-profits and companies on successful online strategies, grassroots fundraising and online advocacy. Their political work has spanned 46 states and across the globe.

    To top it off, at his university he was an LGBTQ activist.

    A graduate of a liberal university, an intern for a Democratic congressman, an employee of a Democrat-supporting organization and a rainbow warrior. I venture to guess that he would have viewed commenters on this forum as “deplorables” and, if any alarm bells had been going off in his head as his assailant neared, he would not have listened to them because that would only have been “racist.” Odds are he never saw his demise coming.

    Thanks for posting this. Sorry to hear about your brother. I’m very familiar with Northern VA, my daughter lives there. The people seem to think they are so very important.
