New York Mayor Reaches Limit, Demands Bail Reform Scrapped for Violent Criminals

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has called for violent criminals to be locked up and bail reform programs scraped after reaching his limit with surging crime.

Adams says he wants to re-examine the Democrats’ bail reform effort that has let violent criminals walk free and re-offend.

The mayor was responding after a recent video of a man attacking an NYC subway cop went viral.

Adams noted that “one aspect that was missing” from the video was the fact that the violent attacker was arrested for robbery “just a few days ago” but was let out by the new system.

“Now he’s back, decides he’s not going to pay his fare,” Adams said.

“The transit officer could have arrested him for not paying his fare.

“He didn’t do that.

“He told him to leave this system and, in response, we saw in the video what happened.

“We need to look at violent offenders and this is a clear case of that.

“We are saying: Re-examine the bail laws in the area of violent offenders — violent offenders.

“Robbery is a violent crime,”  he said.

“But as soon as we catch them, the system releases them and they repeat the action.

“When I say we’re the laughingstock of the country, this is what I’m talking about.”
