Cuomo dodges bail-reform issues in State of the State address. The hottest topic in New York State and Gov. Cuomo can’t find the words to talk about it in the State of the State? The man only hears progressive voices who kiss his ring; those who dare to have a differing view are told they have no place in New York. Believe me, he will only give the groundswell of people calling for changes in the Criminal Justice Reform bill lip service…until time runs out. Tell the Governor: Government’s responsibility is to protect her citizens: Sign our petition here.
Surprisingly, not everyone agrees that the Criminal Justice Reform is a dangerous new law, here is the opinion of an esteemed former judge. I fail to see her reasoning on the discovery portion of the bill. How is anyone, especially victims and/or witnesses safer when the alleged criminal is given the phone number, including a cell phone number, the exact address of the victim and/or witness within 15 days when they have be released on cashless bail? If the crime took place in the home of the victim, it has to remain exactly as it was until the alleged perpetrator can examine the premises. Sign our petition today. Have your family and friends sign it as well. Thank you for taking a stand against this insanity.
Cuomo Details Proposal for New Domestic Terrorism Criminal Charge to NY Penal Law. Unfortunately, the hate crimes that are now on the books are not applied evenly and everyone should be concerned that another law will not change the problem. The state has to do more to eliminate the “need” for more hate crime legislation and much more to help the mentally unstable people who lash out on innocent people. There are many parts to the growing problem, adding another law will do absolutely nothing to prevent domestic terrorism other than making politicians feel like they accomplished something.
Ouch. If the Governor has his way; your property taxes will skyrocket! Cuomo targets Medicaid spending at local level to close $6B budget deficit.

A reporter verifies the topic and then reports the who, what, where, when, and why, when verified. Opinions are on the editorial page and are not limited to the 5 w’s.
