BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – New York City Mayor Eric Adams and police department heads slammed the state’s bail reform laws as “insane” and “dangerous” amid an increase in arrests and a series of high-profile attacks on law enforcement and the public.
New York Police Department Commissioner Keechant Sewell joined Adams and other NYPD officials for a press conference at NYPD headquarters, where she spoke of “the challenges we are facing in New York City every day.”
“They say the definition of insanity is to do the same thing repeatedly, but expect different results,” explained Adams.
In a tweet, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saw it differently. “I agree with him, it is insanity, that’s why we should always release criminals,” she explained. “People that are insane should not be held responsible for their actions. I believe career criminals do not need incarceration, they need group therapy, because this will give them the opportunity to express why they regularly terrorize their communities.”
