Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio
Have No Compassion for The Victims
The Victims of the Crime are Also Entitled to Justice
Brooklyn, NY – What were they thinking? The democratic controlled New York State Legislature passed and the Governor signed a bill to eliminate bail for defendants charged with an array of misdemeanor and felony crimes and made it retroactive!
Thus, the Governor is able to free them even before the law’s effective date. To add salt on the proverbial wound, Mayor de Blasio is offering incentives – that taxpayers are paying for – movie passes and gift cards to encourage them to return to court.
This is a complete miscarriage of true justice. The people truly harmed are ignored, while the perpetrator is rewarded. Taxpayers are forced to pay for this injustice.
Is it any wonder why people are fleeing New York in droves?
