Mayor Bill de Blasio is shocked and said it is “unconscionable” that Rikers Island inmates who were released due to coronavirus concerns are committing new crimes.
What’s so shocking about violent criminals re-offending? You can’t just make them pinky swear that they’ll be good and expect the best Mayor de Blasio.
Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard “Bernie” Kerik knew this would happen…
During my Conservative Business Journal Podcast interview with Commissioner Kerik last month, he adamantly objected to Mayor De Blasio’s decision to release violent offenders from Rikers Island and said it was “dangerous, irresponsible, reckless, and emboldens the bad guys to go out and do it all over again.”
The seasoned law enforcement official went on to say…
“It’s dangerous and it’s bad because it puts the cops, the men and women that go out there everyday and put their lives on the line for people they don’t know regardless of what color they are or where they come from, it puts them in constant danger over and over and over by the same people.”
Commission Kerik was right…
One Rikers Island inmate who initially was jailed for allegedly setting his girlfriend’s door on fire and choking her mother returned to their Bronx apartment threatening to kill the whole family.
This is just one horrendous result of Mayor de Blasio’s decision to protect violent criminals instead of innocent citizens.
