  1. It’s no surprise that Staten Island politicians want to change these laws. Staten Island has long been a home to many NYPD members. A look at the accompanying picture says it all.

  2. In opposing many of the reforms this elected Nicole Malliotakis speaks against not one of the most important fsctors that sought the reforms are mentioned short of her own description of roving gangs and serious crimes she purports to be behind the need to change the crude judicial discretion that was behind the mass incarceration Era of the 80’s and 90’s. She’s a privileged elected with privileged benefits nowhere to understand the fact that such abuses were behind the reasons for necessary change. Take on the responsibility of those behind the practices and assure that they’re prepared to meet the needs of the community in diversion and treatment rather then punishment. The presumption of innocence is entitled to all. I stand to see who is behind the Assembly woman’s heart in considering what really is needed in public safety in our community. Law enforcement officers criminalizing the community or criminal justice system denying the truth of the matter on economic equality when bail factors are proposed.

  3. I can respectfully disagree with the tenor of this article but find it hard to respect the errors in fact and supposition that the Assemblywoman is privileged. The fact is there is an uptick in violence and mischief and compstat numbers skewed by lack of reporting and the decriminalization of well crime, make the security the current administration touts spurious. People have legitimate fears. The bail reform laws are not short of ridiculous. They are ridiculous. The progressive moment needs to come to an end as NY is regressing about 40 years to the bad old days of the 1970s. It’s time to clean house. Starting with the House seat for the 11th District.

  4. It is time to vote out this politicians who are against our poor people; remember Eric Gardner? Bail is a wealth-based discrimination. A rich person wait for his trial out side jail while a poor person who can’t afford bail wait behind bars and most of the times years behind bars without a trail. Most of the times they loose their jobs, are evicted from their apartments and even loose their families. Another problem is that a defendant coming from jail to court is tired which make it difficult to follow the trial. Just one more thing, a defendant coming out with correction officers look more guilty than a person walking into the court by himself. Bail is wealth-based discrimination and need to stop.
