Feb 17 - NYC subway thief thanks Dems on 139th arrest, release: 'Bail reform, it’s lit!
 

 
NYC subway thief thanks Democrats after his 139th arrest, release: 'Bail reform, it’s lit!'


A serial thief who has racked up 139 arrests in New York City for pickpocketing unsuspecting subway commuters has thanked the Democrats because bail reform allows him to commit more crimes.

‘I’m famous!’ Charles Barry, 56, told a New York Daily News reporter outside Manhattan Criminal Court on Saturday after he was released due to the new lenient law.

‘I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!’

Barry has been arrested six times so far in 2020 - and each time he has been freed without paying bail thanks to a new state law that went into effect on January 1.

As police led Barry out of a precinct on Thursday after his latest arrest, he yelled to a reporter: ‘Bail reform, it’s lit!’

‘It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me.

‘You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!’

On two occasions, he was arrested for stealing money from subway commuters who were in the process of buying Metrocards from the vending machines in the subway station.

On January 19, Barry allegedly stole $50 out of a woman’s hand inside the subway station at West 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue near Manhattan’s Bryant Park.

He was then issued a desk appearance ticket for failing to show up for a court hearing.

The arrests in 2020 are in addition to the 133 other arrests for crimes like grand larceny, petty larceny, and fraudulent accosting, according to the New York Daily News.

The new law in New York State, which was passed after Democrats took control of the legislature in Albany, requires judges to release those accused of misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies.

In order to ensure that those arrested return for their court dates, the judge may impose non-monetary conditions, like electronic monitoring or supervised release.

If someone is suspected of committing a violent felony and the judge is not convinced that he or she will show up for their court date, the judge can impose bail.

Supporters of the reform say it is necessary to reduce the pre-trial jail population and combat mass incarceration.

Opponents say that it allows recidivist criminals to continue committing crimes without a deterrent.

Since Barry’s crimes are considered nonviolent, judges are not allowed to send him to jail while his case awaits trial.

According to authorities, Barry has a history of sneaking up on commuters and stealing their wallets.

Police say he has even pretended to be a Metropolitan Transportation Authority worker and offered help to riders buying subway cards, only to run off with their cash and credit cards.

The 56-year-old Barry has served six terms in state prison.

He was sentenced after being convicted for selling drugs as well as grand larceny.

A transit police officer says the new bail reform law is to blame for Barry’s continuing to commit crimes.

‘At least before, he’d be remanded and be behind bars for a couple of days. He wouldn’t be able to victimize people,’ said a*sistant Chief Gerald Dieckmann, the No. 2 officer in the NYPD’s Transit Bureau.

Critics of the bail law say it should be amended so that judges have some discretion to impose bail on potentially dangerous suspects.

But supporters of the bail law accuse the NYPD of amplifying Barry’s arrests to promote their agenda.

‘We adamantly oppose any changes to the bail law as it is written,’ The Legal Aid Society said in a statement.

The LAS, which is representing Barry, says putting him in jail does no one any good.

‘Mr. Barry’s case underscores the need for economic stability and meaningful social services, not a need to rollback bail reform,’ the Society said in a statement.

‘Locking up Mr. Barry on unaffordable bail or worse, remanding without bail, ultimately does nothing to protect the public and fails entirely to address his actual needs.’

You should actually read the article before talking sh*t. This sh*t is all propaganda, trying to pump up nuisance crimes into something more than what they really are. Let's ignore the fact that crime in general is down and at historic lows let's also ignore that wage theft is a bigger problem than any other form of theft. And focus on this one dude




P. S.
Dude is still gonna get prosecuted and will be ducking booty bandits upstate shortly. Yall act like he's getting away with 0 repercussions

lol this the best yall got?

Crime down, justice and fairness is up...

Yall got any hard data related to "failure to appear" charges?

That's really how we evaluate this policy:
Are failure to appear charges increasing or not?

If they are, retool the policy.
If they aren't, then good for us, we made it work without cash bail.

The reason for Bail Reform.

Kalief Browder spent three years on Rikers Island because his family could not raise $3,000, only to have charges dropped in 2013 for lack of evidence. He later took his own life. He was in solitary confinement for two of these years.

Before you stupid motherfu*kers start talking sh*t. They was putting people in jail who couldn't make bail whether guilty or innocent. They were stuck there until it went to trial. So if you had to go to work too bad, if you had a family to take care of oh well. On top of all that you are in jail with actual criminals who may physically or s*xually a*sault you.

Exactly they’re grabbing these one-off examples as if it’s an indictment of the entire system when the reality is it’s doing much more good than harm.

The spike most likely due to record temps in January with most of month being in the 50s.

Well, I'm in the city twice a week and I can tell you that crime is up in NYC. Conspiracy charges are mostly federal. You haven't said anything about state charges and habitual offenders going in and out of jail like a turnstile. You got ppl hopping on trains and buses not paying fares. And little n*ggas going are sucker punching and slashing ppl. It has nothing to do with the temperature. That's ridiculous.
