Mayor Bill de Blasio Wants Teens Charged With Robbery, Assault Freed Without Bail


Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to “more than triple” the number of teens released from jail without being expected to pay bail despite being charged with serious crimes like armed robbery, assault, and burglary.

The guidelines also expand the number of adults eligible for his no-bail Supervised Release Program. It would also eliminate the need for defendants to prove community ties before arraignment to qualify for supervised release.

It primarily covers “high-risk” teens charged with misdemeanors or nonviolent felonies but will be expanded to include first- and second-degree robbery, assault and burglary. More

Here’s more proof why Democrats need to be defeated in 2020. They’ve gone from being for law and order to being soft on crime. The reality of this is that teen criminals will simply be emboldened to commit all such crimes they want to, knowing there will be no repercussions.

When the robbery rate explodes the citizens only need to look into the mirror to see why. They voted for this when they elected de Blasio.
