The State of New York is set to release 125,000 suspected criminals next year and will provide them with tax-funded housing, and free job training services, all courtesy of the taxpayer.
The release is part of recent criminal justice reform laws hailed by liberals.
New York has enacted a series of bail reforms that will allow suspects accused of “non-violent” crimes to stay free of jail before their trial dates. They also will not have to post bail.
The list of crimes includes:
Aggravated vehicular assault
Promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child
Possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child
Promoting a sexual performance by a child
Failure to register as a sex offender
Making terroristic threats
Criminally negligent homicide
Aggravated vehicular homicide
According to Breitbart News:
In total, at least 125,000 accused criminals are likely to be released from prison in New York City every year, according to an analysis by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Those are at least 125,000 accused criminals who, even if charged with criminally negligent homicide, would be released from prison the same day they were arrested.
Of those 125,000 released accused criminals, New York City will provide taxpayer-funded subsidized housing, job training, and family counseling to 10,000 each year. The scheme, called the “Atlas” program, will cost New York City taxpayers tens of millions of dollars each year.
New York City already release 108,000 criminals last year.
Failed presidential candidate and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also bestowed subsidized housing and job training for criminals and is promising to give released accused criminals gifts like Mets tickets and movie passes if they show up to their court dates.
These “reforms” are dumping tens of thousands of violent criminals back into the streets. And hundreds of thousands more are coming.
